My mother, who is 80 years old, began suffering
from terrible pain due to post polio syndrome about a year ago. I took her to many physicians and therapists who couldn't do anything for her. I was then referred to an anethesiologist by my family doctor. He told me that she had helped many tough pain cases. I took my mother to see Dr. Rosenblatt immediately. Since my mother had a few other medical conditions, Dr. Rosenblatt did some research and had us come back a few days later.  She's been treating my mother with low does steriod and painblocking injections as well as some long acting
pain medication. It's been miraculous. My mother has been able to function again. Even though her muscle weakness makes it difficult, she's driving and doing her own shopping again. I want to get her a scooter and lift for her car. I hope others can experience the same improvement.

Thank you,
Hal - Lighthouse Point, Florida
