After retiring from the NFL with a minor back injury back in 2002, I eventually moved to NYC to work in business. When my back went out on me while sitting in a chair one day, I found myself in unfamiliar waters. For the first time in 36 years, I couldn't walk. I never felt more helpless, pathetic, or pain. Not being sure where to go first, I went from the ER to several doctors. It seemed all anyone could do for me was either surgery, or prescribe pain pills; neither of which were of interest to me as final treatment methods. Finally, my orthopedist recommended I see Dr. Allen for an epidural. From the moment I met him, Dr. Allen patiently listened to all of my needs and concerns. He was able to relate to me in a way I didn't know doctors could. The epidural went flawlessly, and with the help of physical therapy, my back has begun the process to being fully recovered.
I've been seeing Dr. Allen over the past few months, and my observations are:
-He's a straight talker and very personable.
-He cares about his patients. I never once felt like a dollar $ign.
-He's extremely knowledgable in his field.
In conclusion, if you're in pain, I'm sorry, I know how it feels. I'm writing this review so you can save time...this is the doctor you want to see. Good luck!
