Dr. Christen Allaman's Ratings
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!
