Great ortho doc

Dr Allen was great, he did my meniscectomy with good results and has consulted me on other knee issues, he's always very attentive and understanding and willing to listen to my questions, he also clearly has my best interest in mind. Now that I need cartilage repair he did not hesitate to refer me to another doctor who specializes more in that area.

I recently saw Dr. Allen for my knee. He was professional, very nice and answered all my questions. If any of my friends or family members needed to be seen I would recommend him.

I must agree with the other female reviewer. I was treated the same way. Will not go back again he threaten me. And did nothing for but except spent 5 mins and when I asked him questions he got angry. Poor poor poor bedside manner.

He is such a jerk!

Doug Allen was a jerk from the second he burst into the room. He had a rehearsed narrative to get through and I had better not interrupt him. He typified the arrogant doctor you hope you don't get - won't allow questions, belittles you (especially if you're a mere female) and is very in love with himself. He really is everything people hate in physicians. I'm sorry I wasted my time and will NEVER see him again.
