Patient Comments (5)

He is a great orthopedic specialist. He even assisted molding my cast on my ankle after I injured it. He really knows what he is talking about. He was very information and actually has a great sense of humor.

Dr Stringham does not return any phone calls, he puts them all onto his medical assistant Melissa who is terrible... She does not return phone calls no matter how important your issue is. When I called after leaving my six message, I asked for the office manager, she cited on the medical assistance...more

He has one foot out the door the whole five minutes he spends with you. No explanations. No time to answer questions. Rude.
