Specialties

Dr. Simon J Allport has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

Great Doctor!

I really like Dr. Allport. I have had two colonoscopies with him. He explained the exam and results in detail. Very pleasant with a great bedside manner. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Everything has gone smoothly here for my last two procedures. I would certainly recommend him and this practice to anyone.

Dr. Allport diagnosed me in August 1999 with Crohn's disease!!

I would recommend Dr. Allport to any one facing any digestive problems. He is very caring, kind, and knowledgeable. He has helped me and my family through the years with difficult times of Crohn's disease and being in the hospital. He always has a good beside manner and knows the right thing to say even when you are feeling your worst. I would recommend him to anyone with Crohn's disease also.,"
