I think Dr. Rosenthal is wonderful and so is his PA, Shane. I have received excellent care and freedom from intense chronic pain. I also really appreciate the kindness of all of the staff
in Provo, Ut |
Dr Rosenthal and his staff are very professional and compassionate. I moved here from Texas. He was able to improve my back and leg pain. I had been told by 4 different doctors that I should just go on disability. After receiving treatment by Dr Rosenthal and Shane, I have been able to continue working and get my life back. I would recommend anyone with chronic pain to see Dr Rosenthal. He is honest and wonderful.

I love Dr. Rosenthal, he and Shane have been very helpful with all my facial pain and now with my back injury. They care about not just my symptoms but me as a person. I would highly recommend this office and Dr. Rosenthal.
Salt Lake City, UT |
Dr. Rosenthal performed one procedure, a nerve block, in my neck that he screwed up. He poked around in my neck for 20 minutes because he injected too much dye and could not visually see the nerve. So he said that when I felt very intense pain that is where he would inject the anesthetic. Well, the block failed and I am left with radiating pain that I did not have before and he did not help with the post procedure pain from his multiple blind stabbings of the nerve with the needle.
in Provo, UT |
I recommend this doctor and office staff for many reasons. First and foremost is the excellent quality of my care and treatment by the staff. Without exception, every time I enter the office I am overwhelmed with confidence that the doctor and entire staff treat me like my care is the main focus in their day. I am clearly not a number but a very valued patient. Their professionalism deserves the highest rating on any scale.

Orem, UT |
Dr. Rosenthal knows his stuff! All research I have done has always lined up with his treatment recommendations. He has been a great help to me in managing my chronic pain condition. I trust Dr. Rosenthal to take care of me during every visit and procedure, and am thankful that he puts up with my severe anxiety with needles - he is beyond helpful and encouraging, coaching me through procedures, when needed. I would absolutely recommend him to friends and family, and have already done so!
