Have you seen Dr. Joseph Allen?

May 9th, 2015Over the years...
I have been a patient of Dr. Fassetts for over 15 years. He is a wonderful man, and I hope he continues to practice medicine for many years. Dr Allen is the physician I see when I cannot get an appt with Fassett. Dr Allen always seems distracted and not overly interested in making any conversation at all. He wants to get in and out of the room.His nurse leaves much to be desired. She is rude and unkind to patients. Both my mother and my husband have commented on how unnecessarily nasty she is to paying patients. Last time I went in she slapped a paper in my hand and gruffly told me I could get my blood work elsewhere. She did not offer an explanation, and didn't even tell me to fast for the test... which I had to get twice . The quality of care has gone down dramatically over the years, I am seriously considering changing doctors at this point.

January 13th, 2011Does the Doctor "CARE" more about certain types of insured patients ...??
I switched over to Dr. Allen last year, as heard he also specializes in 'sports medicine", and I have seen him 4-5 visits, for several issues. EACH time, his persona seems as if he doesn't care much at all at what I am trying to describe (symptoms-wise). I am starting to wonder if he normally just doesn't show ANY enthusiasm/caring/passion about anything at all, personality-wise, or does my HMO type of insurance coverage only warrant a small degree of caring. Hopefully not, as I have had many doctors/surgeons/specialists in 4-5 different states, and none seemed to possess his level of "caring".I will be changing doctors soon, and am afraid I CANNOT recommend Dr. Allen to anyone.

I've been going to Dr. Allen for years and have never had anything but great experiences. Even though I only seem him once a year or so, he always remember my history, what sport I play, what college I'm in, and whatever my previous ailments have been. He listens to what I have to say and takes my opinion into consideration while being as professional and personable as a doctor can be. He never seems in a rush, always spends enough time with me, and leaves me feeling like I'm leaving a friend rather than a random doctor.
