Saw this guy in Lima. Was not keen on a shot from a doc I never met - been through this 5-7 times and none were good. The nurse seemed like she was trying to rush him - he gave her a kind look and she disappeared. At first, I thought he was almost too smooth but he did a shot in my back and I almost never knew it. Seriously, he talks about anything and everything and YOU HAVE NO IDEA HE IS DONE!!! An honest and very elegant man - seems much older than he looks. Very Very smooth. I called a week later and he called back himself on his cellphone - too bad he's a Penn State Fan, but I trust him anyway.

I had an injection for my neck 2 week’s ago. He said he wanted to check me in 2 weeks. Got an alert saying I had an appointment for today. When I got there the staff seemed confused and said they had me down for an injection. I said I already had one . They said well do you want another one ? I said I was here for the dr to go over my progress. They said we will work you in. Once the dr saw me he said I should get another injection and I needed a traction device. He left the room without much explanation. I asked the assistant for a refill on a med. She said she’d take care of it. I never got a notification that they did. They then sent me to PT. After much confusion there they told me I should look on Amazon for the traction device. I left over 2 hours later completely frustrated. They never told me how to proceed with the process. I feel like they abandoned me. I went there 6 weeks ago and don’t feel like they want to help me. I am still in pain and concerned .

First of all he took FANTASTIC care of my Dad, who was Army Green Beret in Vietnam. He listened carefully and cut us off when he asked questions that he needed. He talked to my dad like a regular guy about stuff my dad doesn't usually talk about. He was very precise about my dad's pain where most doc's were just like ok your bacjk hurts" Dr Mike might seem of icy but he's really just focused and warm and he keeps asking questions where nobody else cared. My dad - who doesn't like anyone esp not doctors - said " that man there ... there's a real doctor" My dad says he walks and moves like he was SF community and says all those guys are like that. I grew up around bases my whole life and recognize that swagger - the way he moves and how he talks. He's not arrogant, he just knows he's got a job to do and he's 100% sure he will get it done. Dad let him inject his back without a question - I was stunned!! and it was fast. I kind of want to see him now for my fibromyalgia but he's

Everyone from the front to the back was so nice. Dr Mike is really kind and speaks so you can understand him. He had 2 different socks on, but I've never had a doctor remember so much about me from visit to visit. That little puppy keeps you company while you wait. No, he doesn't write a lot of meds and you shouldn't need them. He's incredible with his hands and even better with a needle. I'll let him do anything he needs to with my spine

What an elegant man. He is a small dog following him that was so clean and sweet and smelled so good. Unfortunately, if you look at his reviews you have 25 people that give a one and everybody else loves him. This is because he doesn't deal with drug addicts. When you walk in and are expecting any kind of medication a third party lab (someone that doesn't work for him) collects a urine drug sample on you. If it is positive for something bad like heroin, marijuana, cocaine they will know within minutes. I saw an angry screaming patient (who I really think it looks like she's on the verge of death), complaining that she couldn't get narcotics and therefore he was responsible for her having to do cocaine. His secretary had already called 911 and he was an absolute ice cube. It obvious he's done a lot of emergency care because he didn't blink or escalate when he told her he wouldn't press charges she went in the rehab. She kicked the chair over screaming about drugs4 her husband etc.

ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!!!!! this man has the best hands. master neck manipulator - knows an awful lot about medication interactions and safety. really gentle and down to earth. little puppy dog in the office and he says he lives at her house. takes real good care of fibromyalgia patients - does not write a lot of narcotics, so if you are a druggie - don't waste his time.

was one of the best spinal manipulators I've ever been to, and I've been to a lot. I told him I see the chirpractor and Dr Mike said somethign about getting the primary lesion - he popped me in a way totally different and did it all himself - not like with the table at the Chiro office, and I've gone form seeing the Chiro 3x a week to Dr Mike once a month. I"LL NEVER SEE A CHIROPRACTOR AGAIN!!! what a waste of time and money and Dr Mike was right- they weren't getting it all. He really does handle any and all spine and joint care - my daughter goes for headaches and he treats her head to toes. even popping her ankles. He does dal with a lot of drug addicts, liars and fakes so don't believe the crap unhappy people post about him. Meet him for yourself

wonderful and kind. I have no idea how he deals with all the drug seeker and addicts that try and lie to him. His staff has always been very good and offered water and coffee. There was a drunk man outside the office who asked "this doc, does he do drug screens?" I walked past and told Dr Mike - he called the police. we need to keep him in Mansfield, but sometimes his pants don't match his shirt

well loved and respected. when the office dog died, he got cards and flowers - from manof us.When you are sick as I am youbecome a bit of a conoseuer of new Doctors My rheumatologist sent me and "I've got to break in a new kid" but he's older. website says 46 but I doubt quite that old. When you look him up on medline it's impressive - I'm a retired nurse - butalso onlinehe's done some engineering stuff looks military and he seems to look that part. I look at my doctors almost like my chefs - I really don't need to get to know you if you do your job well, but really is so personable that I like talking to him. It's incredible and the way he treats his students - I wish we had more like him when I was a nur. All I'll say is Lord help whatever woman is trying to dress this man. Dr Mike is cleanshaven,usually has light cologne and I can tell he has good clothes, but it seems if you gave him 100 pants&100 shirts and let him decide - he would pick out the only two that did not match.

I have been treated by Dr. Mike for almost 10 yrs. for lower back pain, upper neck pain, and hip. He always eliminates or greatly reduces pain that he has treated thru his various methods including injections or removing nerve shaft in affected area. He is able to relieve pain to the point where I seldom have to take a pain pill or even an aspirin. My back and neck areas that can't be operated on so he is my only relief without having pain control unit implanted. Pain medications do not help

My experience with Dr. Stretanski was very good. I first visited his office in late 2015. I had been to The Clev. Clinic on numerous occasions for physical therapy including- 2 steroidal injections with no pain relief. Dr. Mike, as he is called, reviewed my recent MRI images, performed an EMG and recommended surgery. I was referred to Dr. Christian Bonasso in Columbus I am awaiting surgery - still trying to pass pre-ops. Over all I was very impressed Dr. Mike.
