Dr. Allen feels being an Ob/Gyn is like being a part of a sisterhood. She helps
her patients feel empowered and encourages them to embrace every stage of womanhood. She strives to treat the entire mind and body and tailors the treatment to the specific needs of her patients; making women partners in their healthcare decisions. She is known by patients and colleagues alike for her happy, positive demeanor and warm bedside manner. Her compassion, patient support and medical competency makes the referring physicians and patients feel at ease and confident in her ability to provide the best care.

When she is not caring for patients or bringing a precious life into the world,
Dr. Allen loves spending time with her twins and husband. She also enjoys traveling, dancing, trying new restaurants and bonding with friends.
