Dr. Strauss has an extremely enthusiastic and attentive manner, and was determined to find the cause of my joint pain. Unfortunately the X-rays were not enough to get to the bottom of it, so I will see him again after myMRI. But I have complete confidence that he will successfully address the problem.

Such a smart, pleasant, and energetic doctor! He took the time to take me through all the details of my injury and my options (unlike my previous doctor). I felt properly taken care of. Staff and office team are very professional. I highly, highly recommend him.
