All round top notch doctor in best sense of word!

Skilled and knowledgeable, caring in a low-key sincere manner, and extremely competent as a surgeon, Dr. Allen has been my orthopedist for over twenty years. Knows when to advise surgery and when to consider other approaches.

Fantastic Surgeon

Gave my daughter an option that was not offer by another surgeon...with a much greater likelihood of success. Very pleased with his work. Not a big talker, and you have to ask the questions, but he is the best!

Doesn't Push For Surgery

Dr. Allen is not a surgeon who pushes you to have surgery. I have seen him twice and neither time did he recommend surgery. Each problem resolved itself as he said it would, in one case using a brace. On top of this, he is personable and friendly.
