Dr. Strachan and his staff are excellent. I had been on other biologics and he changed me to Actemera. I feel great and my joint damage is almost nonexistent. Many thanks.

It is quite obvious he obtained his medical license at Trump University due to his narcissistic comments. If I could give negative stars I would.

Dr Strachan has made my journey with a chronic illness absolutely TERRIBLE! Horrible bedside manner and will prescribe OTC medicine for debilitating pain. Literally one of the nastiest people I have ever met.

Dr Strachan has been taking good care of me for over 20 years. He is kind and caring. When I first met him, unlike the other Drs I had seen he gave me hope that he would help get my rheumatoid arthritis under control. He did that, I will be forever grateful. I had been told before that I would likely end up in a wheelchair. I am active and enjoying my life.

I have found Dr. Strachan to be very difficult to deal with in terms of appointment setting and communicating with him and his staff. There are a lot of choices out there and I would not recommend him or his practice.
