Dr Allen performed lap band surgery on me in 2008. I have done very well with it and have even surpassed the goal weight he set for me and am keeping it off. I am a healthier and happier person. He is a wonderful doctor and I am positive that he saved my life. I would do it all again and I would pick him as my surgeon again.
Wonderful Person & Compassionate

I think Dr Allen is great, I have recommended him highly to everyone that has ask me about the Lap Band. I don't know who the other person saw that said he was bad, anytime I had a problem, day or night, all I had to do was call and he returned my call, everything has went great and I would do it all over again as long as I had Dr Allen !
