Dr. Strunk is a very understanding doctor who knows the needs of his patients after evaluating them during their appointments. He is caring of what the problems they are facing and treats them to learn how to deal with them. This takes time but he makes the time. He also works with different hospitals with patients that hospitalized beside his office. He has a great staff that work with him and help in many ways. I would recommend him to anyone.

Wonderful doctor. Took extra time to discuss my child's problems. I would strongly recommend this doctor.
Willing to work with difficult cases, employ unconventional/off-label treatments more than (most) other doctors- but be VERY careful not to complain about service or *anything* or you will be "terminated"- in my case not until MONTHS later when calling to schedule a follow-up and they tell me I was "terminated" months previously, with an official letter (which I never received) supposedly having been sent. May have to go to an ER, walk-in/urgent care or something if I can't find another Dr soon

Dr. Strunk himself is great but he has the trashiest, rude front desk staff I've ever encountered. I have been seeing him for YEARS and they were always a little rude but today was it for me. No matter what time your appointment is, you will almost always wait between 1-3 hours to be seen. Don't even think about doing a "walk in" (even if you're from out of town and were told it would be fine) because they will tell you no with an attitude even after you've waited for an hour.

After 2 years of beeing man handled in the mental health care field, we, my family, found Dr Strunk, who was the first Doctor who explaind that serius mental illness is neurological and talk therapy does not curing mentall illness , that mentall illness is not a caracter flaw..He have been the stable consistant reasonable docter, who have guided my family through 8 years of living with schitzophrenia.He has saved my family and I will always be fore ever grateful..

Not professional at all. His assistant is rude. They will judge you in a heartbeat. If your having serious issues this is not the place to go they will make you feel horrible about yourself.
in Headland, AL |
He won't give me my medical records after signing releases and they keep lying saying they are not getting the faxes from samc. he has caused me emotional upset and mentally with stress. he never informed me of what I was diagnosed with. he just wrote down whatever he wanted to write down. he has put my life in danger by not releasing my medical records if there is anything in there that needs to be known.most of it is misdiagnosed. I would not advise anyone to go to this man.
in Geneva,AL |
Most of his staff talk down to you along with flipping their fake eyelashes they even roll their eyes at you...little to no professionalism! Dr. Strunk is an odd man...you only get 4-5 minutes...he may say three words to you and he's out the door saying he'll be right back and he never returns but his assistant does only to bring you to the check out where you get handed a prescription and no guidance or info from Dr. Strunk on medication?!? ???? BE SAFE CHECK ELSEWHERE FOR HELP ??

Was misdiagnosing me, would not tell me what was wrong with me. Would not send my medical records to my new doctor. Called lawyer and he said something fishy was going on. Very unpleasant person, never smiles. Terrible bed side manners. Doesn't explain to you anything. just walks in how ya doing. Ok I'll get your medicine. Most terrible doctor i have ever been too.
