How likely are you to recommend Dr. Allen?
In June of 2018 I developed severe pain in my legs, worst on the right side. An MRI in July showed that I had compressed nerves at the L4-L5 vertebral joint. Dr. Allen performed minimally invasive surgery to remove the disc, and install a cage to maintain the spacing while fusing the joint. The surgery resolved all my pain and I feel like new again. Dr. Allen is an excellent surgeon with a cheerful and sincere manner that imbues confidence. I recommend him unconditionally!
