Default re: bitten by a tick, started to have slurred speech

Make an appt with Dr. Gregory Bach just outside of Philadelphia in Colmar, PA. People come from all over the world to see him.

My mother was diagnosed with ALS and we went to Dr. Bach last week. He has already started her on Rocephin and Zithromax without waiting for the lab results. He is treating her for Lyme based on her clinical symptoms. She had the bullseye rash on her leg a couple years ago that she ignored. Not all Lyme sufferers get the rash though.

We also ran into a family friend who was diagnosed with ALS and is using a walker and has speech impairment (his symptoms are much further along than my mother's). He has been seeing Dr. Bach for about 6 weeks and is showing improvement after starting antibiotic treatment for Lyme. His Lyme tests came back positive.

Please give Dr. Bach a call (215) 997-9421
