Mr Allen was calm, friendly and professional. He explained the procedure in detail and whilst being reassuring, he ensured I had a realistic expectation of the outcome. Whilst in hospital he visited every day to check my progress. At the follow up appointment, I found his enthusiasm motivating and found I was looking forward to doing as much as I could to ensure the best long term outcome I could achieve.
Very professional, explanations were clear and as full as required. After care felt like he was a caring capable surgeon.
Made me at ease as soon as I came into to see him to discuss my Hip. Showed my xray to me & explained on how to fix my Hip & save my pain. Told me How long have to wait & was very close to that day. Price explained . Came to see me on check in & explained on how procedures was going to go in that next 24hrs. Came again after op & said everything had went well which is very comforting & asked if I wanted to ask anything. Came to see me before discharge & I have just left his office for a follow up visit which he saw me me with a slight discomfort getting up from reception but pleased that Im on to recovery. Mr Allan is who I would recommend to others if needed.
I found David very informative he explained Everything about my hip replacement and he makes you feel so comfortable about thing's he's one excellent doctor
I can’t praise Mr Allen highly enough. Because he did my knee operation last year on the NHS with which I was delighted, I sought him out specially to do my second one privately. He made the whole experience, both times, very pleasant. He explained everything I needed to know before and after the operations. He has an exceptionally kind and friendly manner, and I’m so glad I chose him for my second operation.
From the initial referral , surgery and follow up was first class . Everything was explained clearly from Mr Allen from the start and after surgery. Recovery and healing went well and this was confirmed at Post Op appointment . Mr Allen's surgical team were on the day were very reassuring and professional. Can't thank everyone enough for my time spent in Nuffield
One could not hope to meet a more professional and caring guy setting at ease the patient.
Professional and experienced orthopaedic surgeon. Excellent bedside manner, taking time to give full explanations to my many questions
Very professional in all of my dealings would see him again if I ever had a problem also would recommend him.
Dr Allen gave me an excellent and straightforward prognosis of my hip condition. I also enjoyed hearing the details of the surgical procedure and aftercare. This absolutely helped me decide to proceed with my hip replacement surgery as soon as possible. Such a positive experience and wonderful outcome in my life. Can’t commend him and his team highly enough.
