What People Say About Dr. John Allen, DO
Reply
For 8 years I dealt with pain from unknown sources while going to multiple specialists, undergoing multiple tests and procedures. Finally received a diagnosis from a Neurologist who referred me to Pain Mgt. I was a patient of pain mgt for 5 years until my doctor left and Dr Allen took over. My pain was being managed. Well, I'm back to square one having to start all over again with the treatements that did not work years ago, such as physical therapy, accupuncture, massage, exercise, etc. Dr Allen is not a fan of medication for chronic pain regardless of what methodologies you've tried prior to the pain meds. It's more than frustrating to have to start all over again when I already know what does and does not work in treating my pain.
