I cannot express enough my gratitude to Dr Petros and his staff. Dr Petros is incredibly patient, kind, thorough and very good at what he does. His office manager and insurance coordinator worked tirelessly with my insurance to gain approval for my procedure, being so understanding about my pain. Many times we can feel like a number in health care, feeling frustrated and hopeless, Dr Petros and his staff are the gold standard. I feel 100% confident that I am in good and caring hands.

I fired my previous PM Doctor. I knew right away I liked him. He went over my chart right before entering the exam room. The he did what I believe to be the hallmark of a great doctor! Rather than telling me what he was going to change or the direction he was going to taking my treatment, he shook my hand, introduced himself, said, “it looked like had some rough times, tell me about how your pain evolved to where it is today. After he actually diagnosed me, “you have failed back syndrome.

Dr. Petros I feel is the only doctor out there that could help me with my condition. For years I had bounced around from one doctor or one specialists to another..finally I took the advice of a professional peer that had been extremely satisfied with Allied Pain & Spine Institute....and now I am so grateful for the pain relief that I have experienced for over a year and half now..Dr. Petros was able to appropriately diagnose my condition and treat it accordingly. I highly, highly recommend!!!

E. Amir in San Jose, CA – May 08, 2016
Frustrating experience. Front office staff is unpleasant, unresponsive and Condescending and at times very rude. Mistakes are always blamed on tge patient not the staffs miscommunication and mishandling of paperwork. Dr petros is not particularly hands on at gfetting staff to coodinate tests ordered. Hes a pain doctor not ER doc yet there were cancelled apts to see other patients that caused me to reschedule weeks out. Ive never had that happen. More than once and its inexcusable.
