Dr. Strodtbeck goes out of his way to recommend and explain additional treatment options and to process the insurance papers to gain approval for those treatments. His group practice has other doctors and seems very busy each time I have an appointment. I have been his patient for internal medicine for 10 yrs. +. I could not be more satisfied. You will not be disappointed with his care.

Having just moved to the area, I needed a new primary care physician. I asked around and Dr. Strodtbeck names came up a number of times. Though he specialty is in geriatrics, I'm only 52, I thought I would give him a try As his office is right across the street. I was pleasantly surprised when he entered the room. He was very welcoming, polite and most of all concerned about me. He spent a lot of time getting to know me and addressing my needs with compassion. Highly recommend Dr. Strodtbeck!

Wonderful person. I changed when my long-term internist retired. I found Dr. Strodtbeck just as caring. He also cared for my elderly father who moved into the area through palliative care and was just as compassionate.

I have been coming to Dr. Strodtbeck for a number of years now, and I must say he is THE BEST doctor I think I've ever had. He's intelligent, has compassion, always listens and offers suggestions as to how to best handle a medical problem. He is wonderful!! I have complete trust in Dr. Strodtbeck and would recommend him to family and friends.

Great Doctor always listens to your concerns, gives you options if needed, encourages healthy living, tries to fit you in in a emergency. staff is great that support him. Has been my Doctor for over 10 years
in Laguna Woods, CA |
Dr. Strodtbeck is an excellent Primary Physician because he listens well and clearly question you before making statements, judgements or diagnosis. He is always cordial and with excellent demeanor but remains professional at all times. He is above all my doctor, NOT my buddy. He provides referrals without my asking when appropriate. When I follows his advice I have never gone wrong. He has been my doctor for over 10 years. He also has seen me virtually immediately when needed.

Took his time to answer questions in easy to understand terms. Exam was thorough.
