It has been a while since I last posted, and my location has changed--I have left New Mexico and am now practicing at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, Iowa. Despite the change, I am continuing my treatment of OPMD patients in New Mexico and throughout the United States. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the disease.

My name is Richard C. Allen and I am an Oculoplastic Surgeon in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Over the coming weeks and months I will write information here about Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy (OPMD) for patients and their family members.

If you have any immediate questions for me, please do not hesitate to send an email.  Thank you for your interest and please check back often.
