Keith Allen, M.D., cardiothoracic surgeon, has joined the NorthBay Heart & Vascular Center. Dr. Allen earned his medical degree from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, and comes to NorthBay from a hospital in Springfield, Missouri, where he served as division chair of cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgery. He is certified by the American Board of Surgery, American Board of Thoracic Surgery and the American Board of Medical Examiners.
Dr. Allen said he is dedicated to saving lives and treating patients with complete respect. “I treat every patient equally and with the utmost care,” he said. “It’s a pact I made with a friend when we graduated from medical school. We decided that no matter what, we would always treat patients like they are our own mother. It’s something I’ve upheld for more than two decades now.”
