Dr. James C. Strazzeri, MD

Orthopedic Surgery | Male | 62 years old

Although I am a surgeon, I believe that all available treatments should be tried before surgery. My patients are given the pro's and con's of all possible treatments so they can make good decisions regarding their care. Treatment should be tailored to each patients specific situations. My goal is to return my patients to their best possible function. If surgery is necessary, I feel that second opinions are valuable. I have special insight having had six orthopedic surgeries myself.Read more

Amazing customer service. Incredibly attentive staff. Fast and friendly service. There has never been more than a 5-10 minute wait to see Dr. Strazzeri; and the majority of my appointments, I'm taken in immediately after arriving. Dr. Strazzeri believes in using physical therapeutic modalities first, if necessary, in treating specific injuries, instead of surgery. He takes a more conservative approach, when most of the orthopedic surgeons I saw, just wanted to do surgery. I recovered perfectly!
