I adore Dr.Allsup! Followed her from her previous office. I love the new location & the staff is just as wonderful as ever.
It was my first visit and I felt comfortable from the the moment I checked in. The office staff was pleasant and efficient. The doctor took a lot of time talking to me to get to know me and my past medical history. All this before the actual exam. I am new to San Antonio and finding new doctors is always stressful, but Dr. Allsup and her staff made my first visit stress free.
I was really nervous but the staff and Doctor Allsup were great made me feel comfortable and welcome. I would recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Allsup is a magnificent doctor. Words cannot describe my gratitude, the wait was definitely worth it, because she truly cares about her patients and she takes the time we need to make sure we understand what is going on with our bodies. I have never had a gynecologist as kind and professional as Dr. Allsup. Thank you, for your dedication.

The absolute best OB/GYN I've been to I recommend her to everyone, very personable and makes you feel very comfortable.
Dr. Allsup was great, but the staff not so much.
She was very nice and informative. I didn't feel like my concerns disregarded or rushed.
Dr. Allsup was very good about answering my questions. I informed them I was on a time limit due to having to be at work & she was kind enough to see me asap. Felt comfortable talking with her. I would recommend her ! (:

I am a new patient and would recommend Dr. Allsup. I was very comfortable with her. She was nice, attentive and seemed interested in getting to know me. She answered all my questions and I appreciated that she explained everything she was doing while she was doing it. Great Staff and Great Service.
Highly recommend Dr. Allsup. The wait time is a little long, but she does take the time to listen to you and answers any questions.
Despite the fact she is a very busy doctor, she is patient, very kind and takes the time to answer all questions and provides a sense of comfort I have not had before from a doctor.
Excellent, she is a caring doctor who takes time to talk to the patient and she's never in a rush.
Dr. Allsup and her staff are amazing! Very friendly, professional and knowledgeable! Also, I got lost on the way there. I called twice for help and the office manager was so sweet and helped me make it there.
She is a very nice person. Explains everything perfectly understandable to me. Answered all my questions. Helped me get the referrals to accomplish some exams that I need to be done.
Very friendly, calming.
She was very friendly and funny. Made me feel very comfortable.
Very nice, respectful, this was a very comfortable and stress free experience. She answered my questions and advised of some changes that will help me with my libido. :}
I loved my first appointment with Dr. Allsup. I know when I have my baby, I will be in the best of hands and I am thrilled to say that Dr. Allsup will continue to be my doctor for as long as she practices. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a caring, intelligent, experienced and wonderful doctor. Because of her, I feel piece of mind that my baby and I will be in good hands once it's time to deliver.
She is very polite and informative
Love, love, love!!!
Staff was very friendly. Doctor had answers to all my questions. I would definitely recommend to family and friends.
Half the time I never even spoke to Dr Allsup, she had a nurse treat me. She put me on a daily anti depressant and then when I called in for a refill she said "we don't do that here" causing me to abruptly stop the medication which lead to suicidal thoughts. this is a completely unprofessional office and doctor, I will never go back.
Dr. Allsup was great! Very professional knowledgable and didn't feel rushed through my apt.
Dr. Allsup is wonderful, I am so happy to have found her. The wait was a little long but totally understandable since she was saving a little life. Great Dr.!
Only issue is front dest team.. The DOC is great
I loved her and her professionalism.
She was so welcoming and friendly. She made me feel like I've been a patient for years. I'm so excited I decided to choose Dr. Allsup for my prenatal care!
She is so sweet, made me feel comfortable, she took her time to answer any concerns I had. I highly recommend Dr. Allsup!
Amazing Dr.!! Delivered my Grandson,and has been my Dr. for over 8 yrs. Very personable and down to earth. Highly recommend her and her staff.
I think she was very personable, i understand that in her line of work, things sometimes take longer then expected.
Highly recommended OBGYN. She was fast, yet effective, and made the least pleasant time of year not nearly as dreadful. Who knew annual Pap smears could be so tolerable?
this was my first visit but I absolutely loved her!! my last doctor was so careless about my recurrent miscarriages saying that "it just happens there's nothing we can do about it" but Dr Allsup ordered tests right away to find out why it keeps happening. the phlebotomist was great I didn't feel a thing and for once no bruise! my only complaint would have to be that the directions on their website took me to the wrong place it took me over 30 minutes to find it.
Amazing Doctor, she answered all my questions and was gentle and kind.
Dr. Allsup is an awesome, caring, realistic, and professional doctor! I would highly recommend her to anyone.
This review is NOT about Dr. Allsup, it's about the office at the front. I went in for my first visit after finding out I was pregnant. I took my husband and my four year old. First of all, I was NOT informed that my child or husband could go with me. When we got there, we waited for about 20 minutes, and then one of the ladies told my husband he and my daughter couldn't be there. There was one other older child and several other men in the waiting area, but we were the ones to get kicked out?! Totally disappointed. This is a special event in which my husband and daughter should be a part of. It was very upsetting to be treated that way.
I like Dr. Allsup, she is a great doctor, very personable and professional, but I had to wait a really long time for an appointment I made a month beforehand, and the waiting room ran out of seats! Seems like they overbook.
very nice and professional.
this was my first visit and I loved Dr. Allsup, the only thing was that, the wait time was very long. I waited in the waiting room for almost an hour before I was called, then when I got to the room I waited another long time I almost fell asleep. My total dr visit was 2hrs and 15mins
Dr. Allsup always leaves me with the feeling that she's happy to see me, that I'm not just another patient on the list. The office staff is also always very friendly.
Dr. Allsup was very thorough and attentative to my health concern. She took her time with me and was answered every question precisely. I highly recommend her!!
I have been with Dr. Allsup for 4 years now and I just adore this woman! She is a great doctor who is very kind and informative. When I was pregnant at age 40, she helped ease my concerns and helped make my pregnancy and delivery experience be wonderful and memorable. I have recommended Dr. Allsup to ALL my female friends and family. My 20 year old Daughter sees her as well and feels the same way I do about Dr. Allsup.
Dr. Allsup is one of those doctors who you are happy to visit. Her bedside manner is impeccable and your can tell she truly cares. The office is very clean, well decorated, and the staff are also friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Allsup.
Very nice doctor. I will definitely go to see her again. But a very long time to wait. Appointment was at 2:30 ,didn't got seen until close to 4.
Was great its easy to talk to her about all the problems you are having.
After being sent into a room everything moved very quickly. Dr. Allsup is extremely professional and friendly.
Dr Allsup is very professional and always very welcoming. She makes me feel comfortable and is always ready to answer any question or concern I have.
She explain all question l had without rushing out room. Thank you dr allsip
Dr. Allsup takes time to make sure that all of your questions are answered. She is also very sensitive to individual needs and concerns. The nursing staff is also friendly and supportive.
Dr. Allsup is a wonderful professional and very concerned about a woman's well being. I've been doing pap smear for years with different doctors but this is the first time I didn't feel any pain or discomfort. In addition, Dr. Allsup took the time to answer all the questions I had, and she clearly explained my options health-wise. I also love the fact that I can make my appointments online instead of waiting to get them by phone... very advanced!
It was excellent
Staff and doc were very prompt, courteous and professional. I felt very comfortable coming here.
I love Dr. Allsup. She is honestly the best doctor I have ever had. I know she is always looking out for me.
Great bedside manner.
It was one of the best GYN appointments I have ever had. Everyone from office staff to nurses to nurse practicioner to Dr Allsup herself were friendly, caring and competent.
This was my first visit with Dr. Allsup and it went very well. This is on of the first doctor's that actually shook my hand! She was just as excited for my pregnancy as I was. Her nurse, Isabelle was also very courtious and friendly. I was told that Tuesday's are procedure days so there may be more of a wait. I wasn't rushed nor did I have to wait long to see the doctor. I would recommend her to anyone!
I live this doctor. She knows what she is doing and is very in tune with you. She will always be my doctor.
Overall she was awesome!!!! the reason why we waited so long, was because she had to go help with an emergency c-section! She came back and saw her patients right away! She is awesome, and I am very happy that I went with her.
The waiting time was ridiculous...Waited 15 minutes before having to take urine sample. Then back to the waiting room for another 30 minutes before being called to an exam room. Then waited on the exam table in the not-so-comfy gown for an additional 30 minutes. The doctor seems good, but I'm not sure if it's worth the wait. I've been there once before and same wait time.
I really liked Dr. Allsup - she was very friendly and she made me feel totally comfortable. She answered all of my questions and explained every part of the appointment to me. She even gave me referrals to other physicians since I am new to the area. As long as I receive my follow up phone call giving me the results to my tests I will be going back to her again.
I do not ever consider changing doctors even though I drive an hour to see Dr. Allsup.
She was very kind, helpful and efficient.
She is the best. I wouldn't go to anyone else.
I loved Dr. Allsup, however, her front office staff was not professional at all. My appointment was at 2:15. I filled out the paperwork and gave them my insurance card. They called to verify my benefits on speakerphone which I feel to be a violation of my HIPPA rights. I overheard my insurance company saying that I did not have benefits even though I did. The staff then proceeded to give my information to another person to verify my benefits again. While all of this was going on, patients that came in after me were seen before me. Finally on my way out of the office, Dr. Allsup ordered my annual mammogram and a transvaginal ultrasound and as of today (October 5, 2012), I have not heard from anyone to setup my appointments which makes me think they did not fax in the order. I did not get out of the office until after 5:00 p.m.
Great Doctor, very professional and great sense of humor.
Dr. Allsup is wonderful! She is friendly, engaging and professional. She always makes me feel completely at ease.
Waiting was short about 10 minutes. The staff was friendly and quick to get you in and out. Everyone made the experience very pleasant.
She is an excellent doctor. She definitely cares about her patients!
Very informative. Doesn't make the patient feel like the exam was rushed.
I found Dr. Allsup to be both thorough and kind.
Doctor is very nice however the staff is rude. I waited for over two hours as well.
very carring and helps out a lot
I appreciated her willingness to hear what I had to say and she gave me something to work with to address my condition.
Dr. Allsup is wonderful! She is energetic and was an engaged listener. I felt immediately at ease asking her questions and discussing my situation. My experience in her waiting room was not quite as pleasant. All of the chairs in the office are stained (and it's more than a little unsettling to think what those stains might be, given that it's an OB/GYN's office). The air conditioning was either broken or turned WAY up- it was extremely warm and a couple people were fanning themselves. The office staff wasn't overtly rude, however, they didn't provide much explanation about the process and offered no greeting when I came in. They then proceeded to ask me loudly about the reason for my visit (shouldn't you already know???)which I found embarassing and spent a lengthy amount of time discussing my insurance information over the phone (again, loudly enough for the whole waiting room to hear). However, the person who took me back to get my vitals was very polite. Luckily, Dr. Allsup is so wonderful that it was easy to look over all the rest, however, I could see why her office staff often gets poor reviews.
