My experience with Dr. Allen has always been positive. He's very caring and concerned about his patients. Several years ago my husband was experiencing excruciating back pain which required surgery. Before the surgery , my husband could barely get out of bed! Often times he needed assistance getting out of bed! That back surgery enabled him to do things he hadn't done in years! Not only is he an excellent surgeon, he has excellent bedside manners! As far as the urine tests goes, it's done to help us! Taking your medication correct is the only way it can benefit you. The doctor has a specialist do these tests. He has always educated his patients on any medication that he prescribes for them. He also asks about medication prescribed by other specialists. I'm sure he does that to ensure the medicine is okay. With so much abuse going on, all doctors have to monitor their patients closer. Taking medicine the way it is prescribed is for your benefit. I have a daughter who attended medical school. Due to the way people behave, she's opted to work with animals! People have no idea what doctors and nurses have to deal with these days! With a "Sue Happy" society that makes it difficult for these doctors to do their work! Remember, these doctors are here to help, not harm us! Dr. Allen has been our doctor for years! There aren't enough stars here for me to rate Dr. Allen and his staff! They are a wonderful group of people!

Was seeing Dr. Allen for my back,neck and shoulder all he would do would take x-rays and give me cortisone shots every three months for three years and the shots would work for a month and a half and I would still have a month and a half left before my next appointment couldn't get an appointment if I was hurting due to the amount of patients he would have and I would complain to the nurse and the office manager and then one day on my appointment I can't in paid my copay went to the back and waited forever for the dr. To come in and when he did he told me that I had failed a urine test and said he was no longer going to see me. I asked to see the test from the lab he did that I would get my result in a few days. Once my results came in from the lab it didn't show anything but what was prescribed to me by him and my general doctor. So to sum it up all he wants to do is take your money give you shots that don't fix the problem and if you complain then he tells you that you violated the drug policy that he has and when I confronted the office manager they said that it wasn't their decision and the dr never went over my labs to verify that what I had prescribed was a legitime prescription. So I changed to the orthopedic group in mobile and they did a mri on my shoulder and I had surgery to remove a spur that has been bothering me the whole time I was under his care. I spoke with the orthopedic Dr at the orthopedic group and told him that I had been seeing Dr. Allen for the problems and the response was if your just looking for narcotics he's the dr to see. I was pretty upset about how I got treated but it worked out for the best cause all it seemed he wanted to do was milk me and my insurance company for all he could get. So I hope that anyone who tread this understand that he doesn't want you to get better he just wants money. Thank you to the orthopedic group cause they care about there patients not about handing prescriptions out.
