Dr. Strickland performed my ACL reconstruction surgery a few months ago and I am very pleased with the results. I barely have scars and am on track to be back to playing sports in no time. Very professional and extremely good at what she does. If you need knee/shoulder surgery, she is your lady! 100% recommend her to do the job. Entire staff in her office is amazing - willing to answer any questions you might have and are all very responsive.

Dr. Strickland was direct, thorough, kind, attentive and explained her perspective on my complaint without condescension, but clearly and with instructions for my personal plan to get well and follow-up with her. She also listened to and answered my questions with patience and respect. She was on time and her support staff (and their administrative systems/infrastructure) rwas amazing. She is the type of doctor who I immediately trust and the reason why it's worth it to go to HSS all the way from central Brooklyn: I feel confident that the opinion is right and that the plan of action will lead to better health, which is inspiring and saves my time and energy for better things.

Back in 2010 or 2011 I had gone to Dr. Strickland to treat my RIGHT knee, as I had some pain. At that time she ordered an MRI and recommended a cortisone shot for the pain. I refused cortisone, mostly because I didn't have enough information to make the decision on the spot. I was happy with the visit. In 2015, I went back to Dr. Strickland to treat LEFT knee pain, for which she ordered an x-ray. When reading my diagnosis, she mentioned that I had swelling in the knee/patella and again recommended a cortisone shot. My response to her was one of surprise, as I was shocked that x-rays reveal swelling in the knee. To which she confessed she was looking at my MRI from years ago, and not the x-ray she just ordered. An honest mistake, I assumed; but what got me was that she insisted on a cortisone shot for my left knee, and all she had was an x-ray. I walked away with the impression that her No. 1 treatment option is to reach for the cortisone, coupled with mistaking my knees and reading an MRI dated from years ago. I'm sure she's a good doc but I can't say I she instilled confidence in this patient.

Dr. Strickland did a knee replacement for me in 2013 and continues to help me manage the arthritis and pain in my other knee. Her office staff are all friendly and all my office visit waits have been minimal to non-existent . All my questions have always been answered with professionalism.

Everything about Dr. Strickland's practice is professional, modern, and inspires confidence. She runs a tight ship and seems to want to give her patients the best possible care and experience, and it shows. Even the x-ray room is right down the hall, beautiful and brand-new looking, with a great view. X-rays are done right before your visit, if needed, so everything is completely seamless. Dr. Strickland's practice is part of the sports med center for women at HSS, and it's great that this practice exists. Every person in the office was kind and competent, to say the least. As a new patient, I can't speak to long-term care, but I was very impressed after this first visit.

I've met with a number of shoulder specialists in my life, but Dr. Strickland is one of the few that I would see more than once. She knows her stuff, can explain it well, and clearly has the expertise to provide her patients with confidence. I hope not to have to see her again, but will not hesitate to choose her if I have more issues with my shoulder!

Excellent. Had shoulder surgery from Dr. S. Was informative, communicative, and is astoundingly brilliant. Even laughed at a few of my jokes. I kept myself completely cool going into the surgery, because no doubt in my mind she was on her game. You can trust her 100%. Very impressed, great office staff as well.

The office was immaculate, the staff friendly and courteous. The whole process was organized (I had to get X-rays and then see the doctor), but the office notified me to come in an hour ahead of my appointment so everything was very smooth. Dr. Strickland was extremely personable and I would highly recommend her.

United Healthcare Community Plan is not accepted here! I went to my appointment, paid $20 for parking in the city. After an hour at the office, whilst taking my blood pressure, they inform that my insurance is not accepted there. "Sorry"

Dr, Stickland both diagnosed and solved my shoulder issue very easily and effectively. I eventually had surgery, which went perfectly and my recovery was excellent. I would highly recommend her and her staff (and the PT who is associated with HSS, Advantage Therapy). And, of course, cannot thank her enough for getting me back to playing with my 3 year old.
