He is one of the best doctors I have encountered in my life. I am a physical science person with a Ph.D. in physical chemistry. He is a no nonsense guy and I like this approach to my health needs.
Doc Mishra was through, llistened andexplained things very well.
Dr. Mishra's bedside manner is a model for all physicians. he's knowledgeable and personable and genuinely cares about identifying the best path to recovery for the patient
Have already recommended him. He's very supportive of the goal of not need knee surgery, but not blind to the knowledge that people may not be able to avoid it.
I accomplished all that was required in the first visit.
Dr Mishra is my favorite!
Even though I live 2+ hours away I'm very please to be under his care
Allen Mishra is the best

Dr. Allan Mishra is very thoughtful, patient, knowledgeable, and caring. He's fully present and attentive, and goes the extra mile to make sure he properly diagnoses and treats problems.
LOVE Dr Mishra! He listens, he cares, and he takes the time to connect with patients.
Excellent orthopedic surgeon. He's cared for a colleague and for my wife, both with great outcomes, and so far I'm tracking toward a great outcome, as well.
Very personable and timely
Dr Mishra and Eva are so incredibly helpful in all aspects ! Dr Mishra asked Dr Bronk to examine me if he had the time . With a fully booked schedule Dr Bronk consented to see me and his wonderful and caring nurse Peggy ushered me into the examine room and took great care in reviewing why I was here and related history. I greatly appreciated her kindness and great care as I was interrupting their extremely busy schedule !
Excellent. He explained everything and gave me clear instructions on what to do.
Dr. Mishra is an excellent othopedic surgeon and knee specialist. He has treated both my wife and me, and both of us have done very well under his care. I highly recommend him even though his office is a two hour drive away.
Dr. Mishra and his team have been amazing! I had a knee injury while skiing and Dr. Mishra volunteered to see me at time that he was not taking appointments. His team was very responsive and accommodating. When they were concerned with a potential blood clot, they somehow got me an ultrasound immediately. Thank you so much to Jazmin and Chris from radiology for taking such good care of me!

Always a pleasure
Dr. Mishra is extremely knowledgable, helpful as well as being nice guy.
Excellent professional friendly healt care.
Allan seemed very anxious today due to an unexpected injury to left shoulder and left wrist that i sustained overnight. this required eval and He stressed that he was not an 'ER' service, and there was no urgent care on premise. he seemed very concerned and was quite abrupt and brash in stating that I cannot/should not write follow-up email to him about today's issues - esp. wrist injury for which he is not qualified to treat. It was unusual to hear a doctor tell me that I will be removed from his practice if I write to him about a specific matter (because he was already doing me a favor for diagnosing it???). Allan is a really caring and empathetic guy, and unconventional in his approach (which is great), but I think he could've handled today's situation a bit more calmly and diplomatically.
Dr Mishra provided insightful guidance based on in-office assessment of my knee and achilles problems
Dr. Mishra is very attentive and understands my concerns and needs

Dr. Mishra was great. Spent time with me explaining his recommendations and coming up with a plan. Very personable and friendly.
Dr. Kumar epitomizes what I would hope for in ANY care provider -- expertise, exceptional interpersonal skills, and a natural manner of motivating (me) to continue the regimen he recommended for my right knee. Now, several days since our appointment, I am diligently continuing the therapeutic exercise, with him in mind.
Dr. Mishra and his staff got me in very quickly given my history of knee surgeries given my last knee issue and I truly appreciated their ability to schedule me in last minute.
I was pretty worried before coming to the appointment that I might be rushed through and not able to share all the information I needed to share as doctors these days sometimes do that. Fortunately, my worry was unfounded and I did feel that I was able to share all that I needed to do so.
Dr. Mishra is professional and cares about my health.

I was referred to Dr. Mishra by a friend who is an orthopedic surgeon. I asked my friend for suggestions for someone who wouldn't immediately jump to the steroid injection or surgery, but would consider other treatment options.
