    Dr. Allen is a personable doctor who is really good at what he does - Will have him do more surgeries in the future -

    Lex Allen treated me as a valued patient, not as a number on a chart. He's always been kind & caring towards myself or any member of my family who happens to be his patient at the time.

    *specific references to employee(s) that are not care provider(s)* was so wonderful to continue calling me & offering me earlier appointment times that had opened up so that I didn't have to wait so long to get in. I appreciated that courtesy VERY much!
