Dr. Christen Allaman's Ratings
I paid extra for the multi-focal lens to replace my cataract. Didn't want to need glasses! And I couldn't be more delighted. I walked out of the procedure at 20/20--the surgery was painless and was ten minutes of a pretty light show! I would recommend Dr. Allaman and his team to anyone. His associate staff are delightful and super meticulous. They all loved my millions of questions and had good answers. His skill is legendary and I am so very fortunate to have his services. Thank you SO much for my good vision. What a gift!
Dr. Allaman and the entire staff at the SC Eye Care Medical Group provide unparalleled service and attention to my individual health. My family has been served by he and his staff for more than 10 years and we could not be more satisfied. On my recent visit, the front office worked diligently to accommodate my busy schedule. Upon arrival, my chart was ready. The check in was seamless and I was treated promptly. At no time did I feel rushed or less than important. Dr. Allaman performed a in depth examination of my eyes. His procedures were thorough and throughout the exam, he clearly explained what he was looking for and the health of my eyes. After he completed the process, he spent a significant amount of time explaining my eye health care. At age 50, I know this aspect of my health requires careful attention and Dr. Allaman was faithful to detail the best methods of care, hygiene and frequency of follow up visits required to insure my best vision. I highly recommend Dr. Allaman.
Hello. I have been going to Dr. Allaman for 10 yrs. I would like to share my experiences. I have found Dr. Allaman to be a wonderful eye doctor & surgeon. I had laser surgery in both eyes. I have diabetes and my eyes are harder to treat than most. He's taken very good care of me to keep my eyes in good health, going back to see him about every 4 months. He is a very kind man and helps out low-income people; otherwise I would not be getting such professional help. I recommend him to everyone. Sincerely, Mary
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!
