$$$$--That is what it is about. He is a greedy little curmudgeon. Look at that face. It tells the entire story. If On .Medicare, you are done. He finds reasons to abandon patients.Many injection procedures under anesthesia and pain is still a 9 out of 10. Not one follow up on a truly broken down body. He. Shorted me by 2 days one one month so I had to go to my primary care for 2 days worth of pain pills very late on a Friday, to avoid withdrawal on the weekend (in my 70's) with bad heart, diabetes. I was honest with him but he said I was doctor shopping and discharged me with only 2 weeks worth of meds. Bad-rapped me and made it impossible to find a pain doc for his mistake. I raised my voice a bit and he surrounded me with about 8 of his staff then ran away like a little girl and I never saw him again, EVER. With SOC training I could have dropped them all in 30 seconds even with my excruciiating pain and age.. Should have. So I got dumped because of his miscalculation that I missed as well; until too late. 12 pills. I had 6 epidurals and 2 other kinds of shots in my body. He missed once and damaged me...ALL shots were failures but he still wanted to do more. 12 grand for one, one-hour procedure. that did not work. Simple medication plan would do the trick at my age. No wonder Medicare wont pay him. Every month was a new surprise different type of procceure which we had to do or get dropped from his practice. Had to threaten him to get my records. First visit, I got home at 1 AM from a 430 appt. Visits were minimum 4 hours at West long branch, then Oakhurst office. Alladin forced these procedures on me by actually sending a limo to my home and back, trying to convince me he was so cool, when all that was , was greed . One unsuccessful new procedure after another until Medicare got his number. He gets up at 5 AM drives 50 miles, does a procedure or 4, moves on to next facility, then goes to Monmouth County , all grumpy and wretched....so he makes mistakes by being too tired and greedy with the injections to writing the scripts, but we patients stay in pain and take the blame for his mistakes. I was lucky I was able to get a regular plain-old' doc to continue my meds because he knows I have legitimate pain. Alladine believes his patients are all street addicts and has a GoD- complex treating us as such. We are made to feel like heroin addicts by his miserable nasty, NEVER_SMILING staff. They are the worst and do not know how to deal with the public...AT ALL> Now that nice doc is retiring and gave me 3 months supply (scripts) and told me to call the office in February if I hadn't found a replacement Dr for my medications....which I have been told that I must remain on for the remainder of my life. Scary thought but I may have to return to alladin the weasel to get medication and hear from him " well if you dont do these procedures, I will have to stop giving you medication....even tho I KNOW the injections dont work for you" The PT is 2 people talking in spanish VERY BRUDELY and get paid for doing NOTHING> while a Tens machine is working, which I do at home, BTW> He probably knows who I am by now but like I said it is not about me. It is about the money...Miliions a year, I would guess. Where does that money go? He works 14-16 hours per day so when does he have time to spend it all? He is a Muslim! Saudi, I think...Hmmmm! I wonder!
AN ETHICS NIGHTMARE. This place is a pain management corporation..8 offices, TOO many patients! The wait time on any given day at ANY location is OVER 2-3 hours! This guy will have you driving all the way to north NJ for procedures-and they are UNNECESSARY. He will bill & bill your insurance until he uses it all up, then fast taper & kick you out the door. Getting any copies of records, procedure reports, prescription records is a nightmare-he does not comply with patient requests, does not comply with requests from the insurance company or Social Security for records. With the new prescription monitoring in place, you will be in a very bad situation, because he & so many of his assistants write prescriptions that you WILL be accused of doctor shopping unless you somehow manage to get a copy of your prescription record. You will have to call the main office in Parsippany a thousand times, never receive a return phone call; it took me 6 MONTHS of constant calling & nagging to get records from them! The PA's & NP's are totally inconsistent with what the doctor prescribes, they are rude & treat you like a drug seeker, simply for asking for consistency with medications HE wrote in the first place! I've had tons of procedures & never a follow up. Once he gets near exhausting your benefits, he'll feed you nonsense like "oh, you're so much better!" Please, it is NOT worth the stress & aggravation. They bill for services not performed (ie, transportation from surgical facility), the "chiropractor" there bills for adjustments when all you get from him is TENS unit stim. How this "practice" hasn't been shut down is beyond comprehension. A total nightmare.
This place is unbelievable..7:15 appointment & I'm getting out of there at midnight?! Horrendous, rude staff. THIS GUY- he is suddenly tapering people's medication yet still writing for at least one person I've seen in the office who constantly fails UAs & has NOTHING wrong! The one PA-a parrot as someone else mentioned. FILTHY office. If you need records sent anywhere-GOOD LUCK- a bunch of inept disorganized IDIOTS there. I saw a girl not be allowed to leave once because she was TOO WRECKED TO DRIVE. Having to go to NORTH JERSEY for surgical procedures when I live in Ocean County?? SHADY. This guy is going to end up in the newspapers one day. SOMETHING IS UP WITH THIS PLACE.
Who runs this place, the dr or the ones supposedly working under the supervision of a dr?! All this guy cares about is sucking dry whatever ins coverage you have. Have had 3 low back shots in past year, never once a formal follow up, because I haven't seen him since the day of my last shot! The assistants play with the meds from 1 visit to the next which I don't get how someone not licensed as a dr can override what the actual dr says. No consistency super rude staff hours upon hours upon hours wait time.
Smart doctors and staff. Always available. They know all about pain and what your going through.
I'm not sure why there is so much PA bashing on here - assuming that I was seen by the same PA, there is no reason to bash. The PA who saw me took an incredible amount of time and care - over one hour in obtaining pt history and testing. He was exactly the same the second time I saw him...and he has a sense of humor... Dr. Alladin obviously has a great deal of trust and confidence in his PA. Dr. Alladin is fast and accurate - exactly what I would expect from a specialist. I trust that he cares about me and that he cares about people in general. I trust him to my care - pain management was something that I put off for years because I thought it was a sign of weakness...these guys don't judge...they help. I met the Chiropractor during my most recent visit - again, great personality, little bit of humor and very skilled. Roger is probably one of the most peaceful people I have ever met in the patient doctor environment - a big help. The wait time comes with the territory - especially when it comes to specialists...plan on three hours and then you will be thrilled when you're out of there in two!! These guys are awesome - if I didn't so I would never allow them to stick a needle in my back :-) Peace.
Just wandering why Dr or office has not informed anyone what to do after SANDY has hit?Please let us know! THANK U
Waiting time could've been better. Dr.Alladin is truly amazing and so is his NP. They took their time with me and maybe thats why the waiting time is so long. They really want to help you and not just medicate you.
Thank you, we appreciate it! We are constantly working to improve our practice.
Unfortunately it is very common for Dr. Alladin to run several hours late. During my past four appointments at the Oakhurst and North Brunswick offices, he was over two hours late every single time.The physical therapy that they offer is not real physical therapy at all. Its basically heat, massage and a TENS unit. They have no equipment to perform the necessary exercises and you are limited to a bed for the entire session.A note to Medicare patients: He is actively tapering ALL Medicare patients medications and is planning to switch most to Suboxone. This seems to be a contradiction to true pain management.
The office has very intelligent people working there, esp Dr Alludin. His PA can come off short but has the knowledge to manage my medications well. The PA explained my medical issues well and he was willing to see me as often as i needed to continue treating my neck and back pain. I do recommend this physician but the wait time is too long.
I was very taken back by the PA not taking my whole picture into account, only my back issues(which by the way,did say on MRI, small herniated discs could not be ruled out, therefore, not caring about the knee's.(One being operated on)PA 'assumed' my previous doctor had me over medicated!I came in there,in so much pain.Then finally, after not being allowed to say a word.The real Doc Alladin came in with a friendly smile and sweet kind attitude.shock my hand, and as i was putting my jacket back on actually noticed *without me saying a word)my shoulder was obviously much lower then the other with my bone protruding out, asking me about it! I was so thankful at that moment for the PA would not let me tell him that the medicine for acute issues I was on was really not just for back.My shoulder & arm needed operation, and pain was excruciating,waking me with nightmares that I was being stabbed.I needed knee replacements,and that was told by 3 opinions.But b/c of my insurance only having medicare since the death of my husband, who worked 4 a school having the best insurance ever, I could no longer have any operation, as I am responsible for the 20 percent.So now it stands, I am being tapered down and off of my one medication which is the one that helps so much when the other is barely doing anything, anymore.Apparently many of the new younger upcoming doctors are being tainted by the things going on in the world assuming everyone on pain medicine is a drug addict.Well,My previous doc, did not just look at one part of me.He was concerned of my whole picture, inside and out.He was like the good old days doctor who really wanted to be a doctor and know each patient and treat accordingly, not "go by the book"I feel Dr ALLAdin cares, and listens, but ruins it for himself, by having this PA who thinks He is GOd's gift to the medical world and top me tries to over ride DR Alladins position in the office.I believe in this day and age DR Alladin could be covering himself, by having a PA who specializes in methadone etc... I was not there just for my back.I can hardly walk some days, sit on a toilet, let alone get to a toilet in time in the AM.I believ deep down inside The real doctor here, not the PA) knew his PA was not looking at my whole picture.Taking away the medication, when I need aperations on my knee's and arm and should which is hanging bTW , not able to function at al as it used to,I drive, clean type mainly with left hand, when I am right handed, b/c of the agony of my shoulder muscle pulling away from ,my bones.The more i looked at it, the more i saw My previous doctor really was not over medicating me.AND THIS PA ALMOST HAD ME BELIEVING HE WAS.And what these PA's, yong healthy , just coming from the new school and belief that pain meds should only be used for 'acute' distress for a very short period after an operation, They are not in the shoes of someone on long acting medication which goes into vallry's of not feeling any pain medication working at all.So the short acting medication keeps a person on an even keel while the long acting is changing over to the next release of medication to open up, within that pill.God help them one day when their judgement of people on meds for this reason and on doctors who know this, come on them...The day they may have to live with debilitating pain, then they will see what they did to the quality of peoples lives by not having the insight, which bTW back to DR ALLAIN>He is GOOD...He knows his stuff.In seconds I had with him, never seeing my records yet, He saw just by looking at me... in a second saw a problem where the pA paid no attention.His concern only" was the one part of body.The back, and getting people down or off of medication.Well not everyone is the same.Their storioes are different, and thesee yond pA's need more expperience and open minds.Their minds are clouded, by the abuse of medication going on in the world todayThey cannot be objective.Or look at a perons whole being.I do believe Dr Alladin can.
We are glad to hear about your excellent experience with Doctor Alladin!
If you are looking for pain pills only... this is who you should see. If you are looking for someone that can help you and fix the problem... DO NOT see him!!He did a wrong set of injections on me and when I confronted him he told me that it was not oked by the insurance company so he just did what he wanted. When I was have more issues after the wrong set of injections it was the run around with his office staff as well as him to get to the bottom of. I am still waiting for my records which I requested over a week ago and continue to be pushed off after excuse after excuse.His office staff also faxed me over someone elses records to my open busy work office. Who know who else saw them. Dr Alladin only cares about the money and not the client. He will tell you over and over again how good he is yet I still can't understand why he would want to do more MRIs, injects and pain pills when a smply steroid helped the inflammation from doing the wrong set of injections.Him, his staff and his office is dirty!!!
My experiences with this doctor and his staff have not been SO awful, but I would not recommend him otherwise. Dr. Alladin seems knowledgable, but I felt he dismissed the severity of my situation because I am a younger adult. No real recommendations, and he brushed me off saying I should do PT (which I have been) and to come back if I needed a shot (unneeded - trying to fix for real). He has way too many patients booked, and the wait times are always long. His receptionist and admin staff are rude and uncaring; I know they run into their fair share of unhappy people, but if someone is being polite and courteous, they could return the attitude. Overall, I would find a different doctor as I did myself.
Dr. Alladin was ultimately professional.The PA(I will not state his name)interrupted me 3 times while I attempted to speak with Dr. Alladin. Each interruption was the exact same statement. The PA seems knowledgeable, however was very conceited, unprofessional, and disrespectful.Everyone has bad days? Don't let this PA interfere with your care; ultimately the doctor knows best.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS OFFICE WAS VERY PLEASANT AND I CANNOT WAIT TO GO BACK. THE DOCTOR WAS EXTREMELY CARING AND INTELLECTUAL. THE THERAPY OFFERED AT THE OFFICE WAS GRADE A. THE STAFF WAS HELPFUL WITH ALL MY INSURANCE WOES AND IT SEEMS TO BE RUN VERY EFFICIENTLY. -TG
too many patients for one doctor. not enough people to handle script renewals, over crowded, wait time is more than any other doctor i've been to. incredibly long, long hours of waiting for simple things. i would not recommend anyone, even though he personally is a great doctor, what you have to go through to get a minute of his time isn't worth it.
We are sorry to hear about your wait time. We have made changes to maximize our time with each patient so that others are not left waiting. We hope to see you again soon!
Its extremely hard to get in touch with this doctor. He likes to avoid his patients. His office staff is also very nasty.
We are sorry to hear about your experience. We have made changes that have opened up communication channels between the Doc and his patients. He makes a personal effort to meet with each patient and to give them their due accord. We hope to see you soon and we hope you have a better experience!
Office is very severely understaffed even doubt he has a permanent staff??? Unable to get office staff to comply with insurance company requirements despite they will numerous times. This doctor needs help in organization and communication with patients and needs to HIRE A PERMANENT STAFF
We are sorry to hear about your experience. We have made improvements in our hiring and we hope to see you soon!
