Patient Comments (1)
in Raleigh, NC |
Dr. Robert Allen, Jr. performed very successful C6 surgery in August, 1995. I was popping pain pills up to the day of the surgery. He correctly predicted after the surgery no more pain medicine would be necessary. Over the years, I have gone to him and his staff for consultation after having other surgeons recommend back and neck surgery. Dr. Allen correctly diagnosed the problem, and I avoided a major surgery that was totally not necessary. So, Dr. Allen is an excellent doctor anyway you measur
