  • I was very happy with Dr. Allen’s care and the great results of the surgery he performed. Dr. Shawn Allen gave me excellent care. He explained procedures to me, gave me time to ask questions (which he answered – also his nurse was helpful in answering my questions and concerns) ….Another good thing – Dr. Allen not only explained procedures – but also the options – as to how he could do the surgery.

  • Dr. Allen is a wonderful physician. Dr. Allen took as much time as I needed to discuss my health concerns and treatment that was available. Dr. Allen listened to my concerns…I would highly recommend Dr. Allen to anyone.

  • …I want you to know that I receive you as a very kind, gentle and good hearted doctor who genuinely cares about your decisions and the effect on your patients from such decisions. Your quality is rare and I thank you greatly for all of your efforts in wanting to help me. On that same note you draw a staff with your same qualities and I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience as a patient at your office.

  • You are the best! I am very grateful you were my surgical team. Thank you for the excellent care you have given me – very caring and always professional. Thank you for your knowledge, skill and all the positive energy you employed to get rid of the cancer and make my nose look good as new. I cannot think of any way this experience could have been better. You simply are the best!!

  • I’m thrilled to have found Dr. Allen! I’ve been a patient of numerous dermatologists (in Colorado & California) over the years to treat my sun damage, facial lines, and numerous skin conditions. Unfortunately, I’ve been very disappointed with the results from their sometimes questionable treatments. Dr. Allen is not only the most knowledgeable doctor that I have ever visited; he is extremely kind & gentle in his approach. Best of all, my skin looks better than it has for years & I receive compliments frequently about how young I look. I am over 50 and my friends keep asking me what I’ve done to keep looking so good. Thank you, Dr. Allen.
