Patient Comments (5)
in Port Saint Joe, FL |
Dr, Stringer came in with an arrogant and curt attitude. He gave me no hope of a future decent quality of life just because they couldn't find how they could do surgery to help me. He just washed his hands of my case without a care. I have never met such a cold doctor in my life. My pain is severe and real. I moved to Florida because I was ready to enjoy life. I would not send anyone to him. Office staff friendly. Nurses cold and just as unfeeling as doctor.

Dr. Stringer has helped a lot of people in my family. He saved my brother's life years ago. This gentleman not only cares about what he does, he cares about his patients'. When I went to see him he head a nerve test and MRI done right in his facility there, and it was so easy. He also offers payment arrangements that helped me with my high deductible insurance, where I couldn't get treatment anywhere else without payment up front.

Dr Stringer was kind, caring and very knowledgable. He was prompt and to the point with my care and I felt very confident in his treatment. I feel 100% better and will continue to use him as my physician for my back and neck problems.

Really nice Doctor. He has treated me before and always was nice to me. I was most recently seen by his brother Dr. Doug Stringer and he still took the time to come into my appointment and ask me how I was doing and listened to my whole story again. The two brothers really take great care of me and are a great team!

I was on vacation with my family, went to the ER with what I thought was a migraine. Dr. Stringer was my doctor. He was wonderful from the start. He explained everything, bedside manner was great. Was great with my family and helping with anything that we needed.
