Love him. Went for menopause issues. He listened and created a protocol from me based on my symptoms. Really helped. If you want a doctor who won't box you into a strict regime just because everyone else is doing it, if you want someone who is creative and lets your symptoms guide the solution, this is so your man. If you want someone who does lots of tests--as one reviewer does,--he's not for you. I prefer to go by my body's symptoms than by tests --though he will do tests if necessary.

Would not recommend. First appt usually goes good. After that the staff is rude, I also they dont answer calls or call back. Took me over a month to get results and then he acted like my low numbers were NOTHING at all. Spends most of his time reviewing everything from previous appts then sums it ok with OK see you in 6 months. Refuses to test for ANYTHING! Why bother??
Unlike some of the reviews, I have always gotten a phone call back and the staff has been courteous. I have seen many doctors for my hormonal imbalance and adrenal issues and I feel like for the first time in 6 years I have finally found a doctor who is helping me feel better. I highly recommend Dr. Straus. He is easy to talk to, easy to make an appointment with, very knowledgeable and careful when adjusting hormones to minimize negative side effects. I am grateful to have found such a great MD.

Dismissive and scarcely incompetent.
in Providence, RI |
Never call back. Very unprofessional. Poor service.
in Rhode Island |
Do not and I repeat, DO NOT choose this physician as your primary care. He refuses to return phone calls and will not process referrals if you need to see a specialist. His office Receptionist is like the Gestapo. She screens everything and is rude. I cannot believe how I was treated by this office.
