Dr Allred was friendly, listened to my concerns and didn't seem rushed. She was encouraging and positive about efforts I had already made to improve my health. She gave me good medical instruction while also being open to consider my thoughts about what I might need.

January 09, 2017

Sorry, can't remember my doctor's name (mild cognitive impairment!). Anyway, she was great, but the computers were down so she did not have access to my records. Also, with as full as a schedule as the doctors have there I'm sure it is VERY hard to be familiar with new patients background. BUT, from the patient's perspective, you wait a long time for an appointment, the expectation is that you are coming to the "experts" because of a serious issue, for a second opinion after working a LONG time with MANY medical professionals, MANY tests, MANY appointments, and then I get there and the doctor as NO knowledge of my case, tries to BEGIN to look at my case, which even IF the computers would have worked, she would have had the task of looking at 2 years worth of appointments, tests, medications...just to get up to speed. Luckily my wife sent me with a hard copy of most of my recent tests and CD of MRi's that the doctor could scan and talk with me about. From the outside, looking in, a possible recommendation would be to have an intern, medical assistant, maybe even a PA review new patients records prior to the doctor seeing the patient, first to make sure you even have access to the needed information, then maybe provide a one page synopsis that the doctor could review to quickly get up to speed. It would ensure your doctor is going to have the info they need when they sit down with the patient, it save the doctor, whose time is VERY precious and VERY limited would not be wa

Dr Allred was very thorough. She took time to test my dizziness and discussing the option of finding a solution to my problem.

November 01, 2016

Dr Allred is always willing to spend the time with me that I need to assure that all of my questions are answered. I know that she is concerned about me and the difficulties that I'm experiencing. I know when I leave I will have answers and a plan for moving forward.

October 30, 2016

dr. Allred was just exceedingly excellent all-around. It was like having a heart-to-heart with a friend if she cared about what you had to say. Was also very validating to hear that what I felt like I had was what I had.

September 22, 2016

I am very please with Dr. Allred my only concern is that all my providers were like her thank you Dr. Allred

September 06, 2016

Excellent care from Dr Allred as well as the medical student with her

August 28, 2016

Dr. Allred seemed rushed and ambivalent.

August 24, 2016

Dr. Allred was excellent.

August 21, 2016

Very good and thorough! Only complaint is wait time to get seen (waited five months).

August 09, 2016

There were a few times when Dr. Allred spoke very quickly and I wasn't able to understand what she was telling me. Otherwise, it was a very helpful appointment. I felt like it was a good starting point for future treatment.

August 02, 2016

Love Dr. Allred!

July 31, 2016

We had a ton of questions, and she never seemed impatient or annoyed. Answered every question, explained things thoroughly, made me feel comfortable seeing her again in the future.

July 05, 2016

Dr. Allred was very thorough in addressing my concerns.

June 29, 2016

This was my second appointment and the waiting time was over an hour. For the first visit there was no lag time so I figured someone must have had a very difficult problem. I assumed that my own visit would be a hurry up job to try and catch up with the schedule. I was stunned when this didn't happen. On the contrary the visit was relaxed, unhurried and compassionate. My concerns were listened to and responded to, questions were answered and a very delightful sense of humor attended the visit. I still chuckle when I think back on it. While the results were not what I would have wished, the care I was given was superb and I left the clinic feeling upbeat and positive in spite of the negative diagnosis (or lack of a diagnosis) and have remained upbeat since. Thank you.

May 16, 2016

Excellent all away around

March 28, 2016

I appreciated the fact that I didn't feel like you were anxious to get on to the next patient but had time to deal with my concerns.

February 26, 2016

Dr. Allred is fantastic! I have nothing but respect for her. She is a gem.

February 23, 2016

I wish more Doctors were like Doctor Allred

February 23, 2016

Dr. Allred is one of the best doctors i have ever had. She takes time to explain things and talks to you on a level you will understand. She is a fantastic physician

February 08, 2016

I was amazed at how much time Dr Allred spent with me. Her compassion and understanding were welcome after visiting eleven other doctors during the year preceding meeting Dr Allred.

February 08, 2016

She was very attentive to the time sensitive nature of this case and got back to us right away after the appointment.

January 18, 2016

She was amazing!

November 24, 2015

Dr Alred was outstanding

October 26, 2015

I had an excellent experience. we were with the care provider for a very long time describing the issues, and she was caring, listened, and made sure we understood the diagnosis, prognosis, and care needed.

September 20, 2015

Dr. Allred is an AWESOME Dr. I am so glad that she is my Neurologist. she is very kind, sweet,and compassionate. She is very concerned about my health problems and understands my concerns and frustrations and mental challenges that I have because of my Neurofibromatosis. we need more Drs. like her in the field of medicine. give her a raise. She DESERVES it.

August 26, 2015


August 03, 2015

What a friendly and kind doctor! She was so knowledgable and willing to listen to any of our concerns. We also see Dr Riaz and they are both wonderful people.

July 17, 2015

Dr. Allred talked in a way I could understand everything. She made me feel like she cared about my health issues. I am so grateful for the time and concern she gave me. I would recommend her to anyone.

June 16, 2015

Dr. Allred meets and exceeds my expectations of an MD/Neurologist.

June 16, 2015

Doctor Allred is a wonderful doctor. She answered all my Qs completely and then called me a week later to follow up and was interested to see how I was healing.

February 17, 2015


February 17, 2015


February 08, 2015

My husband was with me and he kind of took over the topics at the appointment.

February 03, 2015

Dr. Allred is clearly knowledgeable in her field, professional and very personable.

January 26, 2015

Dr. Allred took into account my input, experiences with a drug class that my system has difficulty with. She included my feedback in her decision making.

January 12, 2015

Dr. Allred always takes plenty of time to answer my questions in terms that I understand. She makes me feel comfortable and gives me honest feedback. I don't feel rushed with her.

January 12, 2015

Dr. Allred is the best. I appreciate her very much.

December 01, 2014


November 17, 2014

My provider is great and very helpful to me

November 10, 2014

Dr. Allred was very informative, concerned and personable. It was one of the best ever experiences.

October 14, 2014

Juliann Allred was very genuine, professional, and helpful. I was quite worried before the appointment and wasn't sure what to expect. After the appointment I had a clearer understanding of what my options are and a clear plan of action.

October 03, 2014

GREAT, I appreciate the attention that she/they gave me.

September 30, 2014

I wish more providers were like Dr. Allred! Someone who genuinely cares about her patients.

September 15, 2014

outstanding experience with provider.

September 12, 2014

Dr. Allred seems competent and paid attention.

August 18, 2014

I felt that Dr. Allred dismissed my concerns and nearly every symptom I had as being psychological in nature. I have had 2 health care providers, including a neurologist confirm that I had a problem with my upper motor neurons possibly caused by an autoimmune disorder. I came to see her for a more thorough second opinion. She did not answer the questions I had about numerous symptoms on my list. I had waited 8 months with symptoms growing worse to find some kind of explanation and felt dismissed by Dr. Allred.

August 05, 2014

all good

August 03, 2014


July 19, 2014

I felt very comfortable with her. She was awesome.

June 30, 2014

I always appreciate the time that she spends with me.

June 27, 2014

I dont understand why my situation did not really appear concerning to the doctor. I am in danger of losing my ability to earn a living because of the symptoms. Honestly, I felt that there really was a lack of concern for the seriousness of how this is affecting my life, livelihood, faminly and even self care.

March 26, 2014

Really appreciate being able to talk with a Dr. for more than 7 minutes. I would have preferred if the Dr. had written down my vitamin B12 instructions (I had to call and make sure I remembered correctly). Dr. initially didn't mention that my symptoms might not go away completely (this came out when we were scheduling my follow-up appt). I appreciate the Dr. and PA going through many possibilities to try to narrow down the cause of my symptoms.

January 06, 2014

Dr. Allred is a very great doctor. She listens to any concerns and is attentive to my needs.

December 13, 2013

Extremely educated in her field. Clearly discussed information about the reason I was there and gave me information on other neurological issues I have as well. Great doctor!

December 09, 2013

Dr Allred was more than attentive. Her care and concern, her unhurried attention to my concerns and discussion of same, sets her above "very good" into the ranks of "excellent."

November 13, 2013

I felt Dr. Allred was very knowledgeable. She was very personable and friendly. I have confidence in her as per #9, but I really knew that she wouldn't be able to do much about the silly leg. As per #10, I would recommend her in a second, in a minute If people could get in faster. The length of time it takes to get in to see her is a real detriment.

October 30, 2013

Very positive experience

October 08, 2013

Dr. Allred was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, caring. She put me at ease and explained things fully. She made this a very easy visit considering I was very nervous and afraid going into it. She made me feel like she had all the time in the world (although I know, of course, that this wasn't the case) to listen to me describe my symptoms and answer fully all of my questions.

September 24, 2013

I was very impressed by the knowledge shared with me about my tests and what the next steps would be.

September 02, 2013

Only wish she lived and worked closer to my area. She explained the Previous MRI completely, which no other doctor had done.

August 27, 2013

I would recommend Dr. Allred to anyone that need the care she gives.

August 14, 2013

I appreciate the genuine concern Dr. Allred showed me during both visits. I never felt rushed and she made certain that I had all of my questions answered before I left.

August 11, 2013

Dr Allred is a competent and pleasant physician to be cared for by. I would recommend her to my family and friends.

July 17, 2013

She was great! Very personable, unlike what I would have expected from a neurologist, but she was great! She had a medical student with her who took my history and did a lot of my exam. I could see how this could be a problem for some, but I was very confident in the medical student and my doctor and I think she worked with him well. I felt that they both took the necessary time needed on my case with me and they both expressed their genuine concerns for my problems.

July 15, 2013

I provided a lot of data, MRI, exams by primary physician, etc., long before the appointment. This was not available in my file when I arrived and had not been reviewed by the physician. This hampered her ability to diagnose my problem.

June 11, 2013

I feel very comfortable with Dr. Allred.

May 30, 2013

Once again, Wanted more time with the Dr.

May 27, 2013

Dr. Allred was friendly, professional and showed great knowledge.

February 14, 2013

Dr Allred was extremely courteous and kept me informed about what procedures would be used. Her staff set them up and made my visit seemless and hassle free.

February 13, 2013

I feel like I am not getting to the bottom of my problwm. The provider doesn't seem to want to get reason for the pain. Just treating it. She has given me different medicine that hasn't worked yet. But the next appiontment she scheduled was 6 months away. When I expressed my concern, she said just call. The last time I called it took 7 days to get a response from her nurse sho said the provider would be unavailable for 4 more days. Then it took another day after that. Now I was impressed she called herself and left a message to change medicine. But nothing to help the pain in a short term or even break through pain. Just a med that could take up to 3 months to take effect. This was very disappionting.

February 04, 2013

I really like Dr. Allred. She explains everything and answers my questions and concerns. Then give me a print out of what we discussed. I appreciate that very much.

January 14, 2013

Dr. Allred was very personable, I felt comfortable with her. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing to see a neurologist.

January 14, 2013

Dr. Allred was refreshingly kind, attentive, a good listener, a good teacher (she had a student in the room which was a fun experience), and very thorough. As a woman I was happy to be seen by a woman and while I was initially nervous, her kind manner put me right at ease.

December 17, 2012

Dr. Allred is one of the best Doctors I have ever had. She does a great job at taking care of me, and making sure that I am able to have the best care possible. She is easy to talk to and easy to get a long with. She seems to really take time to care for me and for my needs.

December 10, 2012

I liked Dr. Allred and felt comfortable with her. She was very professional and encouraging. I would have liked her to see my MRI because that was one of my main items of concern. I feel discouraged that the University was not able to access my MRI online or on the disk.

December 10, 2012

Wonderful caring provider, listened carefully and made sure all my questions and concerns where answered. Very thorough in asking questions and trying to understand.

November 06, 2012

Dr Allred was great. She was a little late coming in to talk with me and apoligized for it. She was thorough and knew what she was talking about

November 05, 2012

Dr. Allred was very thorough, attentive and easy to under stand. She made me fill she cared.

October 29, 2012

Dr. Allred offered some new ideas to help with the headaches and was very friendly and personable. Overall a very good Dr. visit. She was just a regular person who happens to be a neurologists, wow!

October 29, 2012

Dr. Allred was a very caring and approachable Dr. She was genuinely concerned for my health.

October 28, 2012

i felt the doctor sometimes spoke too fast for use to catch everything we were hearing. she did slow down once it appearred we were having difficutity

October 24, 2012

I was very impressed with the physician and the time she took to problem solve my frustrating symptoms with me.

October 22, 2012

We have been through alot with my Dad in the recent years and so have seen alot of medical people for various concerns, but Dr. Allred has been by far the most helpful and most caring provide that we have seen. She has even phoned my parents on the weekend to follow up with them as they live outside the Salt Lake Valley. I would definitely recommend her and her staff!

October 15, 2012

I have never experienced any problems with providers at the U that most people complain about. Doctors regularly take all the time necessary in order to help with prevention, diagnosis, or treatment. This visit was no different. The doctor seemed knowledgeable, caring, and efficient.

September 15, 2012

I didn't feel like I was given a chance to explain myself as it was skipped over rather quickly.

August 13, 2012

I was so impressed with Dr. Allred. She listened to me. She discussed options with me. After I had my MRI she called me that afternoon with results. I really fealt like she cared about me and my medical issues.

July 16, 2012

Dr. Allred was a very professional and polite person.

April 05, 2012

I was very satisfied with how my appointment went with Dr. Allred!

April 03, 2012

Dr. Allred has provided me with excellent health care. She listens to me with genuine concern and always promptly returns my phone call and emails. I feel that I am continually improving and am glad to have her as my Neurologist.

March 30, 2012

This was a much different trip to the headache clinic than my first trip. Dr Allred was much more focused on me, what I was trying to say, my requests. My twin sister went to the appointment with me. Cara helped me ensure I asked the right questions and received the appropriate responses.

March 16, 2012

With my head injury sometimes its hard to explain how things are but she was able to understand my needs and help me understand what I need to do to make the headaches and pain to the head less painfull

March 15, 2012

She told me she was basically giving up on my problem and I did not need to see her anymore. I'm not sure I really understand why! I believe she just basically tired of the paperwork. Treated like we were stupid, very inexcusable , and we will not be back! !!!

March 09, 2012

I just wish she would've read the first couple pages of medical history/problems at least before entering the room.

February 10, 2012

I was hoping to see a headache specialist, but the general neurologist I saw seemed very competent and knowledgeable regarding headaches.

February 03, 2012

Talked to med student more than me. she might be waiting for all results to really talk to me.

January 27, 2012

I really appreciated that Julianne Allred spent a lot of time during the exam and discussing my concerns. I didn't feel like she was trying to rush through my appointment so she could get to her next patient.

January 19, 2012

I was disappointed when Dr. Allred tried to explain my migraines with "I tolerance for headaches is lower than most other people". I have a very high tolerance for pain - as evidenced by many doctors and many surgeries. 3x kidney transplant recipient. I wish we could have reviewed some other ideas. 1. My migraines only began after my first transplant. No headaches to speak of before then. 2. My seizures only started (but did not end) on dialysis.
