    This doctor was not what I expected. She was rushed. She spent most of her time looking and working on the computer as she talked to me. She was very condescending and not as friendly as her nurse described her to be. Her bed side manner was not one to be desirable. I was very disappointed. I pretended that I was okay but I hope to find a PCP who really cares about patients and not what's going on in the computer. The nurse is why my experience was good but not the doctor.

    I could understand Dr. Allen. She explained things well. She was very interested in my care. I am allergic to flour and sugar. Dr made it clear these are not allergies. I disagree. Diet has not been studied enough by medicine. No doctor could ever help me lose my weight. I've lost 200 Lbs without surgery. The only successful help I received was from Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous. I think diet needs to be studied more in the medical field with an open mind please.
