I bit the inside of my cheek and ended up with a skin tab that was annoying for years. Dr. Strabbing took care of it in about 15 seconds. I wish I had gotten it done so much earlier. Easy, simple, professional, well done. Thanks

I had a fungal ball in one of my sphenoid sinus cavities and Dr Strabbing was able to remove it for me eliminating the terrible headaches I was having on a daily basis. He was very professional and explained everything to me in a way that made it easy to understand and alleviated any concerns I had going into the surgery. Furthermore, he did such an excellent job that the post-surgery healing process was easier than I thought it would be. His staff was also able to schedule me quickly, which I really appreciated. I would definitely recommend Dr. Strabbing to anybody needing sinus surgery!

I had balloon sinuplasty and a tube put in my ear. I have not been the same since, and that was Oct. 2019. I still have an echo in my ear and was told by Dr. Strabbing it would go away in a couple days. At the f/u w/a PA that had the worst bed side manner said that should have been gone within 24hrs after surgery. I still have yet to get an exact explanation as to why I still have an echo every time I talk in my ear and other side effect from the surgery. Dr. Strabbing pushed me off to another Dr. in the office I feel to avoid admitting that the surgery did not go as planned. Maybe reading this he will evaluate how he treats his patients and be more truthful. Now I am living w/a whole new set of issues I did not have before. It has changed my quality of life. It's sad when you put all your trust in someone and they tell you what the outcome will be 100% changed and it's something totally different. It's been truly heart breaking.

My primary care doctor referred me to Dr. Strabbing for thyroid nodules detected by an ultrasound. Dr. Strabbing reviewed results, suggested a fine needle aspiration, and prepared me for the procedure. He and his top-notch ultrasound technician worked hand in hand to gather cells for a competent radiologist. His skilled technique, her thorough explanations, and the radiologist's high standards comforted me. Teamwork between surgeon, technologist, and radiologist is what we all expect, but for it to be done at a time like this is true sacrifice and dedication to the profession/patients. In a time of crisis, they did everything to protect all involved and find much needed answers for me. No one can top this. What a tribute to them all as professionals and caring people. No matter what the outcome, I know they will be there to tackle it with me.

I was diagnosed with allergies a year ago and Dr. Richard Strabbing helped me tremendously. Dr Strabbing also performed a balloon sinuplasty for my sinus/breathing issues - and I truly appreciated Dr. Strabbing informing me of what I would feel during each step of the sinuplasty !!! This helped me stay calm during the procedure. With my great results from the sinuplasty and allergy medication I am feeling great. I would certainly recommend Dr. Strabbing !

Over the past year I've been under the care of Dr. Strabbing for thyroid issues. During that time, I've had four ultrasounds performed in his office. His ultrasound technician is the BEST I've ever had. She is professional, knowledgeable, and PERSONABLE! During my appointments, she explained everything that she was doing and why. The relationship between technologist, radiologist, and surgeon makes for seamless care. I'm extremely happy she is part of the team!

I went to Dr. Strabbing for followup on some nodules in my neck. The ultrasound technician was very kind and explained what she was doing. The radiologist was concerned the nodules were growing and irregular and should be checked out further. Dr. Strabbing performed the needle aspiration procedure with very little discomfort, (which was way better than the physician I had approximately 7 years ago.) His technique was almost painless, with no black and blue marks. He coordinated it with the lab, they called several days later to give me the results. The office was also very easy to work with. I would highly recommend Dr. Strabbing.

Dr Strabbing performed Balloon sinuplasty a couple months ago for my breathing issues. I appreciated him telling me what I would feel as he performed each step of the procedure. It was a 1 day recovery and made my breathing much better! He is very kind and professional. He is my children and grandchildren’s ENT as well.

My daughter was a Hope College student from Ohio. She found a nodule on her neck and was referred by Hope Health Services to Dr. Strabbing. He was immediately concerned that the nodule was irregular, and within 2 weeks she had an ultrasound, needle aspiration tests and a biopsy, which determined that she had Hodkins Lymphoma.Throughout the ordeal, Dr. Strabbing and his staff were professional, caring and prompt in their treatment and diagnosis. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Very competent doctors. Office staff needs training in patient confidentiality. During one visit I had a clerical staff tell me what the nurse wrote in my file all while I was standing in the lobby! Not the place to share that information. And, why is clerical staff reading my file? A few minutes later the same clerical staff called across the waiting area asking me questions about my preferences with my emergency contacts. Inappropriate!

Unfortunately, I visited this office with a sinus infection. Dr Strabbing began discussing surgery almost immediately after entering the room. He explained a couple hoops he had to jump though for insurance reasons (CT scan, and writing a prescription for Flonase I was already on). The quote I was given was a fraction for the actual cost! My septum (that was NOT deviated) was cut and now has a large hole. Breathing, talking sound different and their billing department is rude and unorganized.

After struggling for 20 years with extreme sinus issues, Dr. Strabbing was recommended to me. I deal with P.T.S.D. and not being able to breathe my nose during post surgery made me very apprehensive to go through with surgery. Yet Dr. Strabbing worked with me, took the time to explain, talking me through the problems that I faced, along with pre and post surgery. He was very detailed, thorough and compassionate with my needs and concerns. I would not trust any other ENT Doctor.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Strabbing. I have had incredible treatment for a hearing loss that led to me getting a tube in my ear at 55 years old. I immediately felt relief from the pain and was able to hear again. Dr. Strabbing is kind, considerate and thorough in his approach to medicine. Excellent doctor.
