Lawrence M. Allen, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Being a good doctor takes timeā€¦ Careful listening is one of the most valuable gifts I give my patients. The support of MDVIP allows me an opportunity to practice medicine the way I always imagined... with a greater focus on preventive care which I know can make a lifesaving difference.
