The staff was very helpful and compassionate. Dr. Strasswimmer took time to chat with us and explained exactly what was needed to my husband, who was having the Moh's surgery on the side of his face. He did not rush us, was very professional in an amicable manner. The result is perfect, the man is a highly competent surgeon, the episode had no drama or negative connotation whatsoever. Would not go anywhere else, if need be. Glad we were not influenced by the negative comments; they do not reflect our experience even remotely.J.P.C Delray Beach May 2019

A very unfortunate experience. Seemed uncaring. My situation was "difficult and complicated" so he ABANDONDED me! Recommended a doctor that doesn't do what I needed. When I asked for other referrals I got ZIP!

Dr. Strasswimmer's office staff are incompetent. When you have lousy staffing, the questions below are irrelevant.

Same experience as many! Treated like a number, Had door slammed in my face twice by the Nurse. Nurse was SUPER CONTROLLING! Doctor made excuses. I have never experienced something so bad in my life! The Nurse treats people as a number and she has no consequences.

MOHs surgery had begun and my husband started feeling ill and Dr. Strasswimmer started yelling at me his wife that he did not have time for this. He was rude miserable and a horrible surgeon. My husband was finally able to leave the office and he was in terrible pain the whole night. We have been through many MOHs surgeries in Pennsylvania and the experience here was awful. Even the attending nurse quit within the week. He never had such severe pain after any of his other surgeries!

Awful experience! Came back after consult to have scouting biopsies for my 86 yr old mother. Waited 1 1/2 hrs then was told to go get lunch and come back in an hour. Waited another hour only to have him say he couldn't help my mother because she couldn't lay on her stomach long enough for him to do what he needed to do. I guess he can't adjust the way he works based on the poor physical condition of his patients. Got the feeling he didn't want to treat mom. Just brushed us off! Stay away!

My husband and I both have had wonderful experiences. His surgery had to be very close to his eye. Dr Strasswimmer did an amazing job. There is no scar. Gratefully his eye was not cut into, but it was so close. And today you would not believe he ever had a problem. My surgery seemed to be most of my cheek, but Dr. Strasswimmer's skill is incredible. The whole experience is something you can handle. This doctor does not forget to smile. He is caring and kind. We were blessed to have him.

If you value your life, avoid this horrible place!!! The doctor and staff spent more time convincing me not to get stitches than it would have taken to stitch up the large hole in my leg from Moh's. So after 4 months of cleaning out the quarter sized hole in my leg everyday (instead of the two weeks if they had stitched it) I am left with a hideous scar that never healed right. It is still painful to the touch a year and a half later. Thanks to Dr. Strasswimmer for making me feel like a number..

Large 2 1/2" scar after removing small basal cell on left chin under my lip. Apparently he likes to play with his laser. Long waiting times. Rude staff. Neglected to inform me that I had an antibiotic prescribed after surgery. Would not have known unless the Publix pharmacy called 3 days later. Good thing I used triple-A ointment at home. Screwed up my follow-up date and blamed it on their automated system after I missed work. Avoid this place unless you want to look like Frankenstein's cousin.
