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

    Experienced on Jan 08, 2019

    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.
