Specialties

Dr. Allan T Rison has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Terrible visit

After referral and initial call I was called back the next day. I was told there was a cancellation and I could get that appointment if I could get there in a couple hours. When I got there they had some paperwork for me to fill out, of course outlining my responsibility to ensure payment. I returned to the front desk and asked about pricing and treatment options and was told I'd have to wait and see a doctor and that those issues would be determined after examination. The paperwork also asked me how important it was for me to get medication for my pain treatment. I was to circle a number to express that importance, I circled the number to represent very important. When I got back to the examination room the nurse that escorted me back there talked minimally and after digging her thumbs into my lower back explained that they do spinal injections there and offer no medication as treatment. I told her I was not interested in multiple and expensive, non FDA approved and possibly dangerous spinal injections. She told me that was all they do there and asked if I wanted to see the doctor. My entire conversation with the nurse was about 5 minutes. I had driven an hour and a half to get there and had another hour and a half drive home. I made the trip to see a doctor. When the doctor showed up he barely passed the opening of the door just long enough to introduce himself to shake my hand and then returned to the threshold of the door where he stood and leaned for the very short duration of our conversation. He didn't examine me at all. He told me they only offered spinal injections there. There was a poster on the wall that proclaimed drug free pain relief. I asked the doctor if he drank coffee and he told me he drank lots of coffee. I then commented on the drug free pain relief and how that might work since they didn't offer any medications for me but the doctors who will be injecting my spine are getting all hopped up on caffeine prior to administering these procedures. He replied referencing the new KY laws (HB1) and how it Really ties his hands as to treatment he can offer. Sounds like a one sided drug free situation that is bias toward the doctor who needs to have the study hands to administer the steroid (drug) through injection to a precise location in my spine. The doctor talked to me for maybe 5 minutes if that. A day before I received their bill I got a letter that invited me back to an "after office hours meeting to explain a couple procedures we may have not told you were available, and that can very likely help you"..., "pain interventions you may have missed". I was there seeking pain relief, I didn't miss anything, Interventional Pain Specialists missed out. They could have spent another 5 minutes explaining these options while I was there. They billed me for a half hour visit but I was not in their office being examined or treated for a half hour. I was probably in there by myself waiting for as long a time as I spoke to anyone there. They billed me hundreds of dollars. This felt like an extreme waste of time and money on my part. It seemed very much like a bait and switch. Hurry over and fill our vacant time slot, tell us how important it is for you to get medications (drugs) for your pain, ask and we'll continue to deceive, and now you owe us hundreds of dollars, but we have done nothing for your pain and couldn't even take the time to even tell you about all the options we might offer. This place is a rip-off!

Great with Injections

Dr Rison is very skilled at administering injections to your spine. He also offers an IV prior to your procedure . If you have a driver This is the way to go. Not only are you more relaxed , but it really helps with the pain of having a needle stuck into your spine. I ve had injections from several other Docs and he is far more gentle and emphathic.

horrid and terrifying

My husband went to see this so called doc for his back. This guy did NOT do one single test and stuck a needle in his back missed and scraped the bone. Come to find out after going to a real Dr that his back is so eaten up with arthritis other problems that he will end up paralyzed and in a wheelchair. Like a shot is going to help. Thinking of a malpractice suit!
