Deanna Allred has been very patient with this new RA patient. She explained that each patient is different and their experience is different. What triggers the onset of RA is unknown as well as what triggers future 'flare-ups". This is frustrating for me because I want to avoid future episodes but I understand it is all unknown factors. I appreciate the patience she has shown me (and my anxieties). She is an outstanding asset to your clinic.

November 03, 2014

The PA, Deanna Allred, made me feel very comfortable, she answered all my questions and even used a diagram to further explain. The exam was very thorough and she took the time to listen to me. She put my mind at ease about my arthritis.

The University Hospital is staffed with knowledgeable people who seem to care for the overall health of the patient. They asked informed questions and listened to my answers.

She spent a very long time with me in order to get the most information in order to make an accurate diagnosis.

I trust her expertise and told my friends how impressed I am with her and the entire staff at the U!

The office staff & assistant were also amazing!!

Ms. Allred is one of the best providers I have ever had. She is everything one could wish in a care provider. The only thing I don't like about her and the clinic is having the disease that necessitates seeing them for care. The care is wonderful; having rheumatoid arthritis is terrible.
