Dr. Shawn P Allen has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Office is not efficient.

Don't waste your time! Before I could see a doctor, I had an appt with Patsy(counselor) on 9/6, (pd out of pocket, since she didn't accept my insurance) . After seeing Patsy, 1st available with Dr. Shawn Allen was 7 weeks later. I showed up on 10/26 for my appt only to find that I had been cancelled because I did not confirm. I never rec’d a call to confirm. They entered wrong # for home, and never called my cell. They did not offer to work me in or try to reschedule. The scheduler just stared at her laptop while I stood there. I just left. Steer clear! :-( Initially, they wouldn't allow me to make appt with a doctor the same time I scheduled appt for Patsy. That would have been more efficient for me, but not their process. So I've wasted 2 months and $90. Office is not efficient.

I used to see Dr, Allen at her old practice. I'm actually hoping to figure out where she is working now. Best doctor- and she worked with me, seeing as time is an issue. Why people would complain about wait time is beyond me; I NEVER had an issue, and even if I did..don't see how that is fully her fault.
