I met Dr. Richard Allen in 2005 when he first opened his office in Harlem. I had been in an auto accident and hurt my neck and back. He has a very reassuring and friendly demeanor so I felt very safe and comfortable with him from the start. Recently I've had a nasty fall once again injuring my neck and back. There was no one else that I would consider but Dr. Richard Allen. His office is conveniently located, his staff members are well trained and friendly, his prices are very affordable and I know that I am in the best hands. I just want to thank this very kind, considerate, energetic and comforting young man for relieving me of my neck and back pains when I've needed him for the past six years. I recommend him to all my friends and anyone who asks me about chiropractic care. Truly the best hands in Harlem!

Excellent Care Located conveniently in East Harlem/El Barrio, Dr. Allen has provided me with amazing relief from back problems associated with childhood scoliosis and stress. Unfortunately, my insurance did not cover the needed treatments, but the out of pocket costs are very reasonable and well worth the relief. I suffered from mid spinal pain and could never really loosen it up. Dr. Allen spent some time talking with me about the type of pain and made a recommendation for treatment. What followed was some of the best, most relieving spine and neck cracking i have ever gotten. He really does have magic hands! i HIGHLY recommend Dr. Allen’s care for anyone looking for back pain relief at a reasonable prince! Thanks DOC!

Dr. Allen is a caring doctor and I worked with Dr Allen for many years. Dr Allen will make sincere efforts to find out what a patient needs. A patient might come in for pain and leaving feeling that Dr Allen had given them more than they would at other places. I recommended my patients to him. I had entrusted him with children, prenatal mommies, elderly, and anyone else in between. He practices what medicine should be: with courtesy and sincerity.

Thank you Dr. Allen thank you for always taking the time to answer my emails. Your calm but confident ways were very comforting & reassuring to me. I felt that I was receiving the best possible care with you as my doctor. You came highly recommended to me, and will be highly recommended by me. I appreciate your sensitivity to all of my needs it was a great experience to deal with a doctor and staff who are kind, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Additionally, it was nice to deal with people who knew who I was each time I came into the office. I can remember the numerous times I would come home telling my family how happy I was with the care I was receiving at your offices, I also appreciated the flexibility of your office hours, I never had to wait long to get into my appointments and your weekend hours made it much easier. Also, your offices did not have a sterile feel to it, I always felt comfortable. Though your waiting room is full of so many, I've had this sense of such assurance, as your patient, that you've treated me individually and carefully. Thank you for helping me and for providing me with such a positive experience, I could not have asked for more.

The BEST Hands in Harlem! It's been 3 years this May since i hobbled into Dr Allen’s East Harlem office on a cane with what turned out to be a slipped disc and sciatica shooting all down my left leg from my lower back. OUUCH!!! I've had lower back issues like most people, off and on for 20 years and I've seen many different Chiropractors, some good, some not. It was sheer AGONY when I found Dr Allen and I was fearful about maybe needing surgery because I had never had it that bad. His diagnosis and treatments proved to be on point and his prediction that it was a slipped disc, proved right after X-Rays and Cat scans showed exactly that. A good friend who saw the severe pain I was in suggested I visit his medical Dr for a 2nd opinion who's big in sports medicine, a back specialist and this Dr also had back issues so he could really, "feel my pain", as they say. I knew this Dr was good because he had signed photos and jerseys in his office from the NY Rangers & the football GIANTS so I could see he was official. He examined me and completely co/signed the treatment and therapy Dr Allen was prescribing. I'm happy to say I soon made a COMPLETE recovery thanks to Dr Allen and most importantly, he advised me on getting a few things to keep around the house to treat myself in-case it flares up! So three years later I continue to visit Dr Allen bi/monthly and I have not had a serious back issue since then, the longest I've gone without at least one bad lower back spasm to bend me over in Agony. And as important as his back healing skills, Dr Allen is a great guy that I now consider a friend who keeps up with me on Face book & Twitter reminding me to get in for my regular adjustments and treatments. See you soon Doc

I have only seen Dr. Allen for a short period of time, but I have loved every second. Dr. Allen and his staff are very helpful and make me feel comfortable. Having a doctor that takes care of your body well and keeping you informed with any other personal issues is great. A car accident caused me to need Dr. Allen's help. This accident was my first accident and left me unaware of many things. Thanks to Dr. Allen, I now know a lot more about my body and how to take care of it. Thank you Dr. Allen. I had a blast being seen in your office. I will miss your sessions when I move back home.

From 3/22/10 to 5/13/10 I was a patient of Dr. Allen. I was referred to Dr. Allen by my pain management specialist. The main attributes of Dr. Allen's work are Professionalism, competence, and Chiropractic Results. In my case I was suffering from constant pain in neck. No previous treatments were able to reduce the level of this pain. Thanks to Dr. Allen's expertise in manipulative therapy of the spine, my pain level has significantly diminished. To help his patients cope with bodily pain, Dr. Allen will go above and beyond the normal Chiropractor's duty to find the method of therapy needed to deal with the nerve malfunction which he corrected with his hands. I heartily recommend Dr. Allen's expertise to any patient suffering from pain.
