He prioritized my issues (heart and lungs first) and then we will look for structural/physical/mechanical issues. I'm comfortable with and trust him.

Dr. Allan is hand-down the best physician I have ever had and truly feel lucky to be a patient of his. He takes the time to get to know you as a patient and truly cares for your well-being. I have never felt rushed during our appointments and truly trust his judgement and expertise. For me, the standout is in the fact that he does not jump to conclusions, nor to prescribing medications that may not be necessary.

Reviewed on Mar 11, 2024

I would recommend Dr. Allan to anyone in a heartbeat! My only cautions would be around the clinic itself - e.g. The sheer cost of everything from major procedures to simple bloodwork, as compared to nearly any other hospital or physician, coupled with the months-long issue I have been working with the ombudsman and billing on. This is not reflective of Dr. Allan in any way whatsoever however.
