A few reviews for this pro...


Got an appointment fairly quickly and really appreciated Dr. Allen's professionalism and help.

Description of Work
Dr. Allen saved me from having unnecessary surgery. My opthamologist left the area and referred me to a well credentialed practice in Rockville, MD. The new doctor told me I needed immediate cataract surgery in both eyes which was not at all what my original doctor had said at my last exam. I was aware of a small cataract in one eye but just something to watch. The new doctor recommended a laser surgery with special lens implants at a cost of $6000 not covered by medicare. I was skeptical and wanted a second opinion. Dr. Allen examined my eyes and found that I was not close to needing surgery in either eye. The other doctor had told me that there was no way I could pass the vision test to renew my driver's license but Dr. Allen assured me that I would have no problem passing the vision test. Today I went to the DMV and passed the vision test with no problem, just as she told me. She suggested stronger reading glasses which I picked up on the way home. I am very grateful to Dr. Allen and she is now my family opthamologist.
