Dr. Allemang is one of the most down to earth physicians I have ever met. He takes as much time as needed to explain what the procedures are going to be like and the potential recovery to expect. He will listen to each and every concern you as the patient have at anytime. He has only been my surgeon for the last year and even when all treatments failed he never gave up and continued to seek out the best possible treatment plan. I am so thankful for him and his genuine attitude along with his entire office staff who have welcome this southern girl with open arms while in Cleveland!!!

Doctor explained everything and gave me a number to call for any questions

Reviewed on Nov 21, 2019

When I visited Dr Allemang the first time in April I had a lot of concerns because I felt him very confident about himself, and that one gave me some scepticism because previous terrible experiences with other doctors years before. However with the time and with the results of the surgery plus his advices now I can say that I have with perhaps one of the best doctors around the world in his area of specialization. The surgery he performs despite looks easy and fast and low risk, the truth is that is a complicated and risk procedure where only some few doctors are willing to perform this surgery in USA and in other countries of the first world is simply no practiced despite the increasing demand of people looking for a gastroparesis surgery.
