Dr. Allende and all of his staff are super professional but also very personable and friendly. Dr. Allende takes the time to talk with his patients and most importantly listens to them. I would highly recommend Dr. Allende. He put me at ease and he is highly knowledgeable.
Want to thank Dr.Hector D. Allende for helping me with my procedure .you have a wonderful staff every one really professional and caring with they're patients. It was a quick thing but felt most comfortable like never before at any clinic. Thank you'll for caring.
Adding worry free years to my life is priceless. Colonoscopy done at this place by doctor Allende, and all his nurses,is the best place to go in town.
Dr Allende takes the time to listen and makes recommendations for my care allowing me time to decide which way to proceed. I never have felt rushed.
Recently I had a colonoscopy with Dr. Allende in October. I am doing fine. Dr. Allende called me back the first week of November. He said that I am doing fine and the my results came out normal. If I have any problems or questions to call him back. I'd recommend Dr. Allende to my family and friends anytime.
