I have been seeing Dr. Allison for bio-identical hormones for about a year. So glad to read these other reviews and see that I am not the only one to have the kind of experience that I had with her today. It was SO bad that I will NOT be going back to see her again. I have never gotten the warm fuzzies from Dr. Allison. At best?she has complimented me on my hair cut. But today?I must have been having a ??bad hair day? because she was rude to me from the time she walked into the exam room until I walked out the door. In fact?I think she even called the receptionist while I was standing there checking out to find out if I was still there. If you want a Doctor who can really make you feel bad about yourself?especially when you are already ??hormonal??I highly recommend Dr. Allison! Otherwise?she??s not all that!!!!

I have to agree with everyone about Dr. Allison's demeanor. On my first (yearly) appointment I found her to be aloof and seemingly uncaring. I have not yet switched to a new doctor and am late for my yearly exam, so I will be giving her one more shot. I will report back if my opinion changes after my appointment. And if it doesn't I will be looking for a new doctor.

The only positive thing to report about my visit was that they did help me some with my 2 year old. I had to take him along (fun, fun) and the staff did help distract him during my exam.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Take two

I have to say that my second exam did go better than the first. She seemed a bit more personable this time. So I switched from 1 star to 2. I think I may still look for another doctor.

Pros: convenient location

Cons: cold staff and doctor

.

Office staff is abrupt and impolite. Lab person drew labs WITHOUT GLOVES.....unbelievable in this day and age.
Will not go back

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

.

Dr. Allison is impatient, irritable and patronizing. I went to UNC OB-GYN instead and saw Dr. Christina Munoz at her Chapel Hill office off MLK/Airport Rd. It was very convenient (nice staff and easy parking), and Dr. Munoz was friendlier, smarter (better academic credentials and training, too) and more patient in her explanation of the complicated mess of symptoms I'd developed. Dr. A. is just not a nice person. Don't bother. Other places prescribe bio-identical hormones now.

The visit to Southpoint Medicine and Women Health Associates meet and exceeded the medical care that I expected. I was in search of a facility that would give direct attention to my health concerns. I received that with Dr. Allison and her staff , from the time I enter to register and until time I checked out . My visit was pleasant and the staff professional she was attentive as we discuss my health needs and concerns, I knew then that the choice to visit and make her my primary doctor at this point in my life was the right one.

Pros: Atmosphere, environment music relaxing

.

I never like to search for a new Dr. but I had to. After a bit of searching I opted for South Point Medicine because it's close to my house, female staffed, and generally a small practice. Sold. I made an appointment and then saw the review above - awesome. After reading that review I was a little nervous and wasn't looking forward to my appointment (yearly exam), but honestly, who does? I found Dr. Allison to be friendly, attentive, knowledge, and gentle ? by far the best experience I?ve had with and ob/gyn. I was surprised and pleased and highly recommend her and South Point Medicine.

Pros: In and out in 30 min.

Cons: None.

.

Dr. Allison's demeanor was as cold as her stethoscope. She made no attempt to develop report with me as a first time patient. I did not feel like she was interested in discussing issues that were obviously important to me. She is the reason I dread my yearly exam.

Dr. Allison was so good to my mom when she went through the change of life. She is one of the few menopausal practitioners. She practices salivary hormone testing and uses bio-identical hormones.
She also does general gynecology and pediatric and adolescent gynecology for the younger ladies.
One big big plus is she has evening appointments.

PROS: Evening apts.
CONS:
