Dr. Barbara L Allen has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Office is poorly managed.

After waiting over 90 minutes for to see the doctor I left AND will not be bringing my children back to the Rainbow. This is not the first time that it has happened. I had a 9:00am appointment waited until 11:30am???!!! The waiting room was a mess and dirty. Bathroom had not toilet paper and there was no communication as to when I was going to see the doctor. The front help did not even stop me when I walked out the door. Really? This practice has gone down and Dr. Allen needs to get her office managed and trained properly. I would never recommend a parent to Rainbow.

Very Unprofessional Staff.. No Manners. Most of the Staff is stuck up and rude. They do not make you feel welcome and all they do is gossip about people. Which as a professional buisiness they should NOT be doing. Jackie is nasty. They dont have any considerations for their patients. Once they get you in the room they never check on you to make sure your okay or how your doing, Then you have to sit their for an HOUR to see anyone while your childs in PAIN! Now as for Dr. Allen herself, She's not so bad as a doctor. She is okay. Its not really her that I have the most problem with .. Its her Office in General. I wouldnt refer this Dr's Office to anyone. Sorry.. I just wouldnt. They need to get some REAL PROFESSIONAL people in their thats CARING, UNDERSTANDING AND That makes you feel comfortable.

The receptionist Jackie is very nice. I took both of my daughters to Dr Allen. Both of my children have medical issues and she was very understanding of my need to ask a million questions. She never minded my questioning a diagnosis. If I moved back there I would bring my children to her again.
