Verified Patient Reviews
he is very smart and is good at evaluating the medical issues at hand.
Dr. Struhl was fantastic and very knowledgeable and uses latest technology. Great staff as well. My husband recommended him and we respect and like him very much. I would definitely recommend him!
Very kind and professional
9 years ago Dr Struhl repaired my clavicle and AC ligament after a cycling accident . The surgery at the hospital for joint diseases went as well as I could imagine. It feels exactly the same as the other side. He is talented, thorough and pleasant. The staff are excellent and the facility is always clean and up-to-date. I hope I won't need him again but I wouldn't hesitate to go back. If you ride a bike as well as I do, when you fall off you should go and see Dr Struhl.
The reception area is well kept. The receptionists were cordial. I wish the check-in system was more integrated with ZocDoc to retrieve appropriate responses for their paperwork. The doc was professional - and seems to hit the diagnosis spot on once we got down to business. I don't think I receive sufficient explanation for a first-time visit. However, the recommendations were sound and fell within my expectations. I was given a referral for PT and an expectation for a follow-up visit a month from this visit. Overall I'd rate it an 8/10.
Terrific - professional - and explained my options. wdm
I've been waiting 3 weeks for my results for a follow up visits. Repeated calls, etc nothing
Doctor took about an hour to see me, was very quick/abrupt. Heard his calls with a patient, as he had them on loudspeaker. Seemed very unprofessional. Made a weird comment when nurse asked what I needed and he said 'just a little reassurance.' Seemed very condescending as if I had no issue while I had an exceptionally swollen/painful finger.
I read about his AC joint procedure on line and made an appointment. His front office staff was very efficient and then I was taken to have a Fluoroscopy image (X-ray). While in the X-ray room, Dr. Struhl pointed out my dislocation and explained about his procedure and the technique he invented. I am scheduled to have surgery at the end of the week and am very optimistic about my recovery
Dr. Struhl was completely professional- took x-rays and and gave me my diagnosis at the time. His staff was polite and courteous. I would definitely recommend Dr. Struhl for orthopedic problems
Dr. Struhl is the best. He did my ankle surgery back in July. Due to his treatment and physical therapy, I am walking around with out any assistance or problems. His staff was so helpful throughout my recovery. I would recommend him to anyone looking for top notch treatment and recovery.
My experience with Dr. Struhl's office was stellar. I had a very short break from my job, and needed to be in and out. He explained in detail what I needed to do in regards to my shoulder. I was referred to Sports Care physical therapist. The service that I received was above what I expected. His staff was very warm, receptive and cooperative with making sure that I returned to work on time. Thank you to Dr. Struhl and his staff for making my visit easy and quick.
Very professional and friendly office staff. Everybody there seemed like they liked and respected one another. Dr Struhl was very competent and good at explaining my condition in terms I could understand.
Gave me the information I needed in an honest manner
He was very thorough and gave me ample opportunities to ask questions.
overall good experience
Saw Dr. Struhl for my ankle-- the office was very modern and the staff was very nice. He had a modern xray machine and showed me the xrays while he took them and explained what he was looking at. I had the all the information about my ankle when I left and was very pleased with the overall experience
He is seem like a decent doctor but waiting 40 min was a drag
He did not show an enthusiastic attitude to me. PA did most of the work.
Dr. Struhl is the best, he's smart and gives great explanations. His staff on the other hand is quite inept. After 2 phone calls asking if they take my insurance and giving them my member ID number, speaking with 2 staff members, they both said "yes" and of course, I made the long trip in and they didn't take my insurance. My wait was also over an hour.
Doctor spent very little time, and didn't really wait for you to ask any questions. was very in and out. seemed knowlegable, but didn't seem very interested in talking to the patient.
Staff are professional and very nice, doctor diagnosed trigger thumb problem right away and made an injection within appointment that is supposed to resolve my problem. That was what I needed, and I have gotten! Thanks you Steven for your knowledge and good service!
Very nice area, friendly staff, not too much waiting. I had a very successful humerus surgery by Dr. Struhl and it healed very fast so I went back to work just after two days.
His diagnosis and thoroughness seemed fine, but he seemed to question why I made an appointment. I might go back if I need to, but I was not in love.
Front desk was friendly and efficient. Only had a minor shoulder stain, doctor was thorough in his examination and was fast in coming with a diagnosis.
Very personable doctor, seemed to know a lot about his expertise (shoulders & knees) and diagnosed me efficiently. Great experience, great staff, would recommend to anyone!
The few minutes I had alone with Dr. Struhl were good. The entire appointment felt rushed as there was an overflow of patients and the tension within the office was palpable. While Dr. Struhl took time to conduct an initial test and listen to my concerns, the speed of the consultation left me feeling like we had little time to discuss next steps or what could possibly be wrong. Would still recommend him to someone else .. could have just been a strangely busy day.
his staff wrote down the wrong information from me... he walks in looks at my chart then runs out... very unprofessional.
He spent minimal time with me (1/3 what I spent waiting for my visit). His entire diagnosis was based on me bending my knee. Mentioned therapy might help but made no recommendations or suggestions for therapists. go someplace else
Dr. Struhl diagnosed a torn meniscus that had been bothering me for awhile. I decided to hold off on surgery and play in a few tournaments over the summer. He answered all my questions about the risks of playing on an injured knee.
His office staff was phenomonal and their concern for your comfort and their speediness was great. Dr Struhl seemed a bit less "plugged in" but was on top of things.
It was okay. He seemed very casual and nonchalant throughout the visit. I was very nervous as I thought I had broken bones but he didn't seem to pick to on that. His offices have the latest technology and his staff was very attentive and caring.
Dr. Struhl was efficient and to the point. Wait time was minimal.
Dr Struhl is honest, professional and talented. It's clear he is passionate about his work. He repaired my shoulder 5 years ago, problem-free since. When I had a different orthopedic issue last week, I didn't hesitate to return to him. Highly recommend.
He looks like he knows what he is doing but he was in a rush to move on to the next patient so I didn't feel comfortable asking all the questions I had.
