Jim and Jenny Carlstedt
Dr. Philip Adler and Jenny Carlstedt

Philip Adler moved to Tampa in the late '50s after finishing pediatric residencies in Boston and Detroit. Several years later, an infant with a challenging medical case arrived in his office. He immediately realized he could treat the child with what at that time was new medical technology. More than 40 years after the event, Dr. Adler shared his impressions of that day, while the now-grown patient, Jenny Carlstedt, related her perspective on the experience to her husband Jim.
