Along with seeing typically developing children for their routine well baby and medical care, Dr. Allen specializes in complex and difficult children that have failed conventional treatment or want to pursue a more natural approach. He sees children with sensory processing disorder, special needs, attention issues, anger and other behavioral problems, food and environmental allergies and sensitivities, and children that need support and balancing for their constitution, temperament, or with the nine year change.
Appointments offered include:
Dr. Allen will actually come to your home for a newborn’s first evaluation. He offers these as a courtesy to established new and existing families that belong to our practice and live within the greater sacramento area.
NOTE: Newborn home visits require that you make an appointment before the baby is born for a prenatal visit and to establish your family as a patient.

Newborn Services include:
Our vision is to use natural remedies and medicines that ease your child’s symptoms, helping them to feel more comfortable, without suppressing their body’s own ability to self heal. With Dr. Allen being an MD, he fortunately also has the training to recognize potentially serious situations that might call for the use of conventional medicine, if the body gets overwhelmed. He can use these to stabilize his patients, and then use more natural remedies to re-establish balance and achieve true healing.
