Definitely A+. A little wait time before seeing Dr. Allen. But apparently the wait is due to the time she spends with a patient. She covered everything and offered suggestions for city services that would also be of benefit. Follow up contact received later by her office. AND also by the doctor. The personality of a caring doctor. Do not retire!
