About New York Pain Medicine
New York Pain Medicine strives to relieve acute and chronic pain for the men and women of Midtown East in New York City. Our goal is to understand the complexities of your painful condition and its triggers, explain all your treatment options, then create a treatment regimen that’s appropriate for you.
Dr. Douglas Allen — our lead doctor — is dual board certified in physical medicine, rehabilitation, and interventional pain management, so he’s more than qualified to coordinate your care among the office’s various specialists. He’s also a certified medical marijuana provider and opiate addiction specialist.
Although Dr. Allen leads our team, we’ve found that a collaborative approach consistently helps our patients lead healthy, pain-free lifestyles. As such, our pain management team of board-certified physicians, licensed physical therapists, and acupuncturists regularly communicate with each other to ensure you receive the treatment you deserve.
Our pain specialists use a potent combination of proven traditional therapies and cutting-edge technologies to improve your quality of life. We consistently opt for conservative treatment plans, but regardless of what your regimen includes, we strive to explain all the risks and benefits of your prescribed therapies.
Some of our treatment options include steroid injections, nerve blocks, radiofrequency ablation, trigger point injections, platelet-rich plasma, electro-diagnostic medicine, acupuncture, and physical therapy. If any of these treatment modalities are appropriate for you, rest assured that our team will discuss them with you in full detail.
