I had a horrible experience with Dr. Strain. He was unsympathetic to my pain and rushed to diagnose me with osteoarthritis even after I asked about a possible reaction to a new medication. He dismissed me as a depressed and weepy woman. Bottom line, I stopped taking the medication in question, Breo Ellipta, and 6 weeks later, I am 85% better. I do not recommend Dr. Strain especially if you are looking for a physician who will listen to you. You know your body best. He gets zero stars.

I was referred to Dr. Strain by my primary care physician for an uncommon hip problem. Dr. Strain took time to explain what the problem was, what the future course of action would be, and why surgery wasn't needed.
