Af­ter com­plet­ing med­i­cal school and res­i­dency at the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, Irvine, Dr Allen per­formed his fel­low­ship train­ing in Re­pro­duc­tive En­docrinol­ogy and In­fer­til­ity at the Univer­sity of Southern Cal­i­for­nia in Los An­ge­les.

Af­ter fel­low­ship train­ing, Dr Allen re­turned to his home­town to open a pri­vate prac­tice in 2008, aptly named Santa Bar­bara Fer­til­ity Cen­ter. Since then, he has brought his pas­sion for and ex­per­tise in re­pro­duc­tive medicine to an ever-grow­ing and di­verse Cen­tral Coast com­mu­nity and be­yond. He is an ac­tive mem­ber of the com­mu­nity both through Santa Bar­bara Cot­tage Hos­pi­tal and Santa Bar­bara’s first in­fer­til­ity sup­port group, which he co-cre­ated with Shelly Os­born, a lo­cal psy­cho­log­i­cal as­sis­tant.

Santa Bar­bara is a highly sought-af­ter va­ca­tion and per­ma­nent res­i­dence des­ti­na­tion, so be­cause of this and also the fact that some coun­tries have le­gal re­stric­tions on cer­tain fer­til­ity treat­ments, pa­tients from all over the world have been seek­ing the per­son­alised care and fer­til­ity ser­vices of Santa Bar­bara Fer­til­ity Cen­ter.

Dr Allen has a spe­cial in­ter­est in em­bryo im­plan­ta­tion and mark­ers used to as­sess em­bryo de­vel­op­ment. He has also pre­sented re­search at nu­mer­ous na­tional meet­ings on top­ics in­clud­ing Preim­plan­ta­tion Ge­netic Screen­ing, male fac­tor in­fer­til­ity, and tubal surgery. Dr Allen re­ceived the So­ci­ety for Male Re­pro­duc­tion and Urol­ogy Trav­el­ing Schol­ars Award in 2008 for his re­search on hy­per­gly­co­sy­lated hCG in se­men, and was hon­oured by the Pa­cific Coast Re­pro­duc­tive So­ci­ety for his pre­sen­ta­tion, The Pre­dic­tive Value of Em­bryo De­vel­op­men­tal Rate for PGD Re­sults and Preg­nancy Out­comes.

Dr Allen’s pro­fes­sional af­fil­i­a­tions in­clude the Amer­i­can So­ci­ety for Re­pro­duc­tive Medicine, the Pa­cific Coast Re­pro­duc­tive So­ci­ety, and the Amer­i­can Col­lege of Ob­stet­rics and Gyne­col­ogy, for which he pre­vi­ously served as the Ju­nior Fel­low Chair and Vice Chair and cur­rently serves as the Young Fel­low for Dis­trict IX.

Al­though his af­fil­i­a­tions and awards are sig­nif­i­cant, the rea­son he is in such high de­mand is be­cause of his per­son­able bed­side man­ner and his abil­ity to make each pa­tient and their fam­i­lies feel com­fort­able. This is es­sen­tial for this jour­ney which can be one of life’s most chal­leng­ing en­deav­ours. Santa Bar­bara Fer­til­ity Cen­ter has a re­laxed at­mos­phere that al­lows pa­tients to feel as calm and stress-free as pos­si­ble through­out this process.
