Dr. Menachof and his team walked me through a very thorough allergy test and ENT exam. Everyone was extremely nice and clearly had a great understanding of allergies and what might be causing my issues. They only advised treatment when they thought it was truly necessary. Overall great experience.

Review for Dr. Dena Lichfield, DO

Horrible. He took over my care, after another doc left. He clearly did not read my case notes. When I asked for references for a second opinion he acted very confused as to what I wanted. He then told me I would the same answer from any doctor.

Review for Dr. James Stephen, MD

Dr. Strutt changed my life. I was in so much pain and e was able to correct the problem with surgery. It was an embarrassing issue to discuss but he treated the situation with dignity and humor. I can't thank him enough.

Oct 09 2019

Review for Dr. Warren Strutt, MD

He's less interested with treating the sick than he is with following the minutiae of his paper chase.

Review for Dr. Jackie McCollum, MD

Good luck getting timely replies, callbacks, or any compassion from the office staff. Dr. Burke in our experience is stretched too thin, and the lack of attention on serious condition with no sense of urgency or follow thru for us was a concern.

Sep 21 2019
