Dr Strauss is very thorough and caring. He sits down to talk to his clients. He listens to their concerns and addresses each of them. He views patients as people and not their illness. He takes the time to explain all testing and diagnosis. He truly is the best doctor I've ever encountered and I highly recommend him.

My problem was that I question a bill? Could not get Doctor Strauss to call me back to explain. How going over my blood work which was a 5 minute visit with him was a charge to the insurance of 145.00. After several attempts they sent me to billing and they told me that's what they billed the insurance company. I said seems very high. Please have the Doctor call me. Three days later got check in the mail with no explanation. Cert. letter came said doctors at Thomas Spann will no longer see me.??

I have been a clinical hospital worker for 20 years so I understand the healthcare system. Dr Strauss embodies everything wrong with today's health care system. Appointment? Expect wait times from 45 min. to 3 hrs. Dr Strauss routinely throws in unnecessary testing (X-rays, blood work). All, which of course, can be completed at his private clinic. Dr. Strauss' medical philosophy is treating the sick vs preventive care (take these pills and see me in 2 weeks). A very bad all around practice!
