Dr. Laurie Allen
Laurie Allen, DO is a practicing OB/GYN in the Phoenix and surrounding area for over 10 years now, where she enjoys establishing relationships with patients and caring for women before, during pregnancies and afterward into later life. She has always been interested in the medical field, especially women’s care and surgery. This was nurtured by opportunities in high school and college through volunteer and shadowing experiences, which led her to apply to medical school after finishing her B.S. in Biology from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. She was encouraged by a mentor to apply for Osteopathic medicine, which allows for specializing in a particular area of medicine, yet is a whole-person approach to care and promotes the body’s natural tendency to self-heal through different avenues as well as prevention of illness and symptoms by taking into account lifestyle and environmental factors. She learned to listen and partner with patients in their care, offering many options to aid their path to health. She received her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from Des Moines University in Iowa, then completed an internship and finished her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Memorial Osteopathic Hospital in June 2009. As a New Mexico native, she desired to return to the desert (and warmer!) climate therefore bringing her to Arizona.
Whenever she has a chance, she enjoys reading, spending time with family, hiking and traveling with her husband- especially to tropical areas where they can scuba dive and explore the wonders of underwater life.
My whole experience with Arizona Maternity was beyond beautiful. I’m so thankful for Shaunte and Jocelyn they not only made each visit memorable the care I received from them was truly passionate. The birth of my daughter Brooklyn was magical and Jocelyn was by my side the entire time. Before going to Arizona Maternity I was not educated on what Midwifes do. Jocelyn was my cheerleader she made me feel so comfortable and talked me through every step. I’m so thankful for the team at Arizona Maternity. I will never forget this amazing experience. Thank you so much.
I started going there a couple of weeks ago. Dr. Brar is absolutely wonderful! She explains things thoroughly and really takes time with her patients to make sure they understand. The staff is very friendly as well.
I love that Arizona Maternity has all female Providers from Nurse practitioners to Midwives! The staff is always friendly and helpful too which made my experience very nice.
