Dr. Christen Allaman's Ratings
My recent eye surgery was handled professionally and with great care. All of my questions were answered. The staff kept me informed about next steps and any changes to the procedure, appointments, etc.
Skill is at the top of the list. Dr. Allaman is bright, accomplished and expert in his profession. He was recommended to me by an R.N. who worked with him in the O.R. She stated, "He is a remarkable physician and surgeon; he would be my absolute first choice." I have now been a patient for several years and can fully appreciate that he is a good detective in terms of making the right diagnosis and giving the proper treatment; he has a teacher's mindset and always provides a setting to detail all aspects of his care and recommended treatment. He is approachable, compassionate and interested in his patients. I have referred patients to him who have undergone surgery and are extremely pleased with his care. I will remain extremely grateful that Dr. Allaman came into my life at a time when I was having significant eye complications. His care and treatment program changed the quality of my life and I would highly recommend him without any reservations. His staff is superb as well.
I have been a patient of Dr. Allaman for over ten years. I have always been very satisfied with my visits. He is very thorough with his examination and takes his time to explain to me my diagnosis. He makes me feel comfortable and at ease in his office.
Just completed second cataract surgery with Dr. Allaman. Outstanding surgeon, no complications. Extremely efficient and well-organized office and surgery staff. Be sure to do your homework re type of lens that is best for you; Medicare does not cover premium (e.g., multifocal, astigmatism-correcting) lenses.
My mother had surgery with Dr. Allaman, with a premium lens, and is DELIGHTED with her vision. He is knowledgable and professional and his staff is very caring. She has recommended him to several of her friends!
Arrogant and pushy, as the previous rater expressed. May try to sell extravagant lenses that have been found to be ineffective. Heard a story that one of his patients screamed at office staff, "Get these (lenses) out of me". Dr. Alleman can be rude too. Do not recommend him. He's a good surgeon but gives non-existent care if you have a complication. Overbooks his patients. Standing room in his waiting room. He even has his staff administer eyedrops to you as you are waiting in public. Pathetic service!
