Ratings for Dr. Joanna M. Allison
Dr. Allison and her colleagues are wonderful. I have been taking my children to her for three years. She treats them like they are her own, she gets on their level, talks with them, she is incredibly gentle and careful with them. When we have needed urgent care, she fits us in within hours regardless of how busy she is. She has taken meetings with my husband and I to discuss vaccines and has been very agreeable to spreading them out. When one of my children needed a neurological evaluation she made sure we were seen within a week instead of the 2 months that the neurologists office first offered us. She always follows up on the children to make sure they are improving and they are always patient with phone calls and questions - being a first time mother I have had many! I cannot recommend this team highly enough. The nurses are loving and kind, the administrative staff always welcome you with a smile and will do anything to make the visit as easy and pleasant as possible.
Dr Allison has been my children's dr since 2001. My son was one of her first patients at NPCMC. She is exceptional at explaining everything to the parents and comforting the children. She goes above and beyond any pediatrician I have seen. She has gone as far as going home, reading up on something in one of her medical journals and calling me at home later in the evening. The Westchase office is much nicer than the others and I do drive 45 minutes to see her instead of going to the one that is 10 minutes away.
Our family absolutely adores Dr. Allison! We have 3 girls rangin from 2 - 14 yrs old and she is exceptional at all their stages of life! She is very soft spoken and gentle, and is happy to take time with her patients and make sure all concerns are addressed. She always has such a pleasant disposition and never worry about our children feeling uncomfortable or uncared for in her office. They do get quite busy so often there are extended wait times, but a superb doctor is worth the wait!
Dr. Allison is very personable and has a great way with kids. She takes a lot of time with her patients and listens very well to their parents. She provides a lot of information, especially from her own personal experience as both a doctor and a mother. She thoughtfully answers non-medical parenting questions too. The Westchase office is very clean and they do a wonderful job of getting patients in quickly and seeing them on time. Every time I've called for a sick-baby appointment, they've gotten me in the same day. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. I couldn't ask for a better pediatrician!!!
