Care Philosophy

My Approach to Treating Patients Dr. Straus practices general orthopaedics but has a specific interest in disorders of the foot and ankle. He has received extensive training in treating athletic injuries of the lower extremity throughout game coverage of the Houston Rockets NBA team and currently serving as Assistant Team Physician for the Dallas Mavericks NBA team. He has additional interest in arthritic conditions, traumatic injuries, and ligament / tendon disorders. Dr.Straus prefers a nonoperative approach to the management of orthopaedic problems when possible. He believes that a variety of interventions can often be performed to alleviate a patient's symptoms prior to the consideration of surgery. If the symptoms do not improve to an acceptable level following an adequate course of nonoperative measures, then Dr. Straus will discuss the benefits as well as the potential risks of surgery with the patient. The operative plan as well as the expected postoperative course will be discussed thoroughly with the patient prior to any planned operation.Read more

He seemed to know what he was talking about, and I for sure think he is good at his job. However, he wasn't very warm at all. At our initial meeting, he came across as cold, and I didn't get a single smile, or any questions about me or my injury. My Mom had questions, and he wasn't very forthcoming when answering them, and seemed to be annoyed. He is also the only surgeon I've ever had who didn't come see me after surgery to ask how I was doing. He could have been in another surgery already tho.

I came to Dr. Strauss with a Hammer toe and need of surgery. He had been recommended to me because I was fairly new in the area. I had previously had three other foot surgeries in the state from which I lived in before. This is the best experience and results that I have ever had. My recovery was painless and my results are more than I could hope. I highly recommend Dr. Strauss All Star Orthopedic.

Dr. Straus may be great in the science aspect of his job however, he gets only 1 star for his attitude. When I went to see him, he entered the exam room and did not introduce himself, he did not address me by name or inquire about my injury (I understand he probably glanced at my chart before entering the room). It is breaking the ice and making small talk... a human touch if you will. His nurses were the same: cold and to the point. The only warm person was the guy who fitted me with the shoe!
