Dr. Allen has been my doctor through my entire eye injury (3 years) and I couldn't have had a more compansonate & knowledgable eye doctor. I would recommend him for any type of eye surgeries that would be needed. His staff is always just a phone call away.

Five Stars

I have been a patient of Dr. Allen's for over 3 yrs. He diagnosed a very complicated medical condition and performed several surgeries to correct the condition. He is knowledgeable, very professional, and communicates well, and is a skilled surgeon, I am pleased to call him my doctor.

You thought doctors like this only existed on TV

This physician is incredible. I had visited 3 other physicians in the same subspecialty, none of which could figure out or treat my the problems with my eyelid. Dr. Allen walked in and diagnosed my problem in the first minute he saw me. The surgery he did fixed my problem and I am back to my old self. If you have a problem with your eyelids or eye socket, this is the doctor to see.
