    Best health care from all Intermountain providers and staff that I have ever received in my entire life. Intermountain providers are very professional listen to my concern and than provide care for my health problems. I love Intermountain health care providers.

    Because Dr. Allen is such a great doctor, you often have to wait 3 weeks to see him. It's worth the wait.

    It took over 2 weeks to get in to the doctor from the date my appointment was scheduled. I experienced a great deal of discomfort during this waiting period.

    I'd like to say that at any time of any visit I have never been waiting any longer than a considerable amount of time. I think the scheduling is important to make everybody feel comfortable and I certainly did feel comfortable with the amount of wait time. Thank you.
