I have been seeing Dr. Allen 5+ years. I was referred to him by another opthamologist. They wanted to do a laser on my eye to seal - he said laser for this specifc issue - shows no benefit - so we have been watching diligently and I have had some improvement on my own. So, yes, I do trust him. Always have to wait but... I'll wait.
