Best Doctor and man

I have been a patient of Dr. Allen for 38 years. I was told by my NP who takes care of me in Pulaski that he has retired. I know there is no way I could talk to him, but I just wanted him to know how well I am doing. We have argued Tennessee Vols for years. If possible can you please let him know I will miss him and if I ever need a neuro surgeon again who would he recommend? Thank you so much. Merry Christmas.

NO other doctor will ever touch my back. I have had two back surgeries, one of them was major and the other was a rare cyst with a rare bad infection. He took excellent care of me and brought in an infectious disease doctor and his partners all came to see me. He is the BEST.
