Horrible !!!!!

By far the worst service I have ever received. I arrived 20 minutes early for a new patient appointment, for a toddler, we then proceeded to sit and wait for 45 mins before I asked how much longer, they told me there were 5 patients ahead of us, which means another hour, they bumped us up and we still waited another 30 mins and then the Doctor said that he needed to dilate eyes and we would have to wait another 30 mins or more, I expressed that my toddler could not sit and wait any longer and the Doctor said so very nonchalantly "oh well we will reschedule, this is how our office runs" meaning 2 hours behind..... I refuse to spend my time and hard earned money with someone who doesn't seem to care about the best interest in their patients... IF YOU CANT SEE 50 PATIENTS IN A DAY ON TIME, THEN I SUGGEST YOU ONLY SEE 30 PATIENTS A DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Two Stars

Dr. Allen is a good dr. for textbook cases. He is. However, after surgery, I was on my own when problems developed after office hours (M-Th). His demeanor is good, but his lack of knowledge and availability got us in a bind. Before this I would have rated him 3 1/2.
