Military Experience: 

Medical officer assigned with rapid deployment forces involved in land and maritime operations.

Born in Odessa, Texas, Anthony Allen moved to Tucson, Arizona at the age of 13 where he grew up. He moved to Virginia City after he met his wife in the military. For the two of them Virginia City looked like a good fit since his military career had ended. 

Anthony, better known as Tony, decided to work in the medical field because he was inducted into the military and was granted the opportunity. He has provided care to patients for over 50 years including the time when he provided care to indigenous patients in 3rd world countries. Tony chose to work in pain management because he was looking for a change after his time in the military and found pain management to be the most interesting. What makes him unique is that he views the patient as a person and not a condition. 

 

Tony is married and has one daughter. Outside of work he enjoys spending his time scuba diving and living in his 168 year old house in Virginia City. You may also find him continuing photography which he has done for over 40 years.
