    Bio

    Science and the pursuit of figuring out complex problems have always been intriguing to Dr. Allert. Upon graduating from college, she taught high school science in the Virgin Islands and then in England. When the opportunity arose, her husband encouraged her to pursue her dreams of going to medical school.

    Dr. Allert enjoys the challenge of solving complex medical and social problems in the context of family medicine. She believes her job is to not only take care of the patient, but to care for the health of her community as well. Her best advice to patients is to “be gentle on yourself and others, as most people are dealing with difficulties others are unaware of.”

    Dr. Allert was on the Lake View Board of Directors for 21 years and was the Chair of the Board during the hospital expansion. She has also served on the local food shelf board and is the current president of the Lake Superior Chapter of Family Physicians.

    In her spare time Dr. Allert enjoys appliance repair work.

    Philosophy of Care
    It is important that the patient and the doctor work as a team to improve their health. Dr. Allert believes that providing education is her part of her role in their shared decision making for the patient’s healthcare
