She made me cry

Yes, you read that correctly, she made me cry. Ok, I have some anxiety issues, and maybe she had some good points, however she did not listen to me at all, scolded me for not getting a mammogram (I've had a ton, just missed the past few yrs), and berated a diagnosis I got from another doctor (I was too afraid to speak at this point).She made me feel so bad about myself. I'm an educated, employed 47 yrs old, I need a doctor who will show empathy and will listen, and not treat me like a child. Too bad, I think she's probably a good doctor. Never going back.

I HIGHLY DO NOT recommend Dr. Allison

I was seen by Dr. Allison for about four yrs and had anxiety at every visit. I watched her greet people differently than the way she greeted me. I guess if you were on her level then you received better care. She has no bed side manners at all. Everything that I have read about her is true. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who had horrible experiences because I thought it was just me. I dreaded my annual visits until one day I finally decided to change doctors. Duke family Now I know that my concerns were real because my new doctor listens to me and values me as her patient and not number. I now receive the proper care that I should have been getting if only Sheila would have taken the time to listen. However, I will say that the office staff were more friendly and professional than her.

DISAPPOINTED!!!

On my initial visit Dr. Allison was very abrasive and harsh speaking. She seemed to lack sympathy and empathy. She seemed to have a "fighting spirit" which means she seemed to disagree with everything I said even if I was right. She would probably fight a brick if it stood in her way. She lacked patience when I asked her minor questions so I just could not even imagine how she would react with major questions. Good luck to anyone who decides to patronized her. Maybe you will have better experience than me.
