Dr. Strauss now considers metro Atlanta home, and is proud to have joined the Kennesaw Pediatrics team. Board Certified in Pediatrics since 2003, he is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

the wait time was a little bit longer than i would have wanted for a pediatrician. i was just grateful they saw us, since for some reason, a lot of doctors wouldn't take us since we were only going to betemporarily living in GA, but our baby was a new born and needed to be seen.

This was our first visit with Dr. Strauss. My 6 year old son was quite nervous about his visit, but Dr. Strauss was excellent at calming his nerves and making him feel comfortable. By the time we were done, my sonwas actually smiling! Dr. Strauss was also great about answering all of my questions without making me feel rushed. So nice to find a great pediatrician! The staff was also very friendly and kind, lots of smiles and laughter!
