bay area doctors for post polio

Most neurologists and physiatrists (physical medicine and rehabilitation docs) are quite familiar with this. Thing to beware of is the occasional practitioner who wants to put you on a heavy exercise program. That, as you probably know, can make things worse.
Good Luck...

May I put in my .02 cents???? John is correct but when you find one make sure they know Polio and Post Polio and have patients already... Not all Physiatrists and Neurologists want to deal with this type of patient or illness- Trust me.... so really check them out before you go and actually talk to the Dr. not just the receptionist or scheduling person....

It can be a cruel world out there and if I can save someone the stress of some of the well not so nice specialists, I will....

Hugs and good luck Janet:angel:
