Loving Patients Who Struggle with Substance Abuse
Drs. Timothy and Nikki Allen to talk about their work serving the underserved, especially those who are struggling with addiction on this week’s CMDA Matters podcast.
Meet Our Guests
Dr. Timothy Allen has been married to his wife Dr. Nikki Allen since 2000, and together they have two biological children and two adopted children. They started Allen Family Medicine, an independent clinic that provides, primary care, addiction and psychiatric services focused on the underserved. They also pastor Cudahy Christian Church, which they planted to try to help reach their patients.
Dr. Nikki Allen is a family physician, wife, mother, assistant pastor, worship leader, encourager, amateur photographer, lover of words, and friend who knows—beyond all other things—that she deserves God’s judgement but is overwhelmingly thankful for the sacrifice Jesus made that allows her to be in relationship with God anyway. She has been married to Dr. Timothy Allen, her best friend and best teacher about the Bible, for about 23 years, been blessed with two biological children, and has a long-standing habit of bringing people into the home who need help or a place to stay resulting in two adults being adopted into their family. Together with her husband in their own independent clinic, she serves as a missionary carefully disguised as a family physician, seeking to show the grace, forgiveness and love of God through Christ to the people of Cudahy and the greater Milwaukee area.
