I used to be a patient there until I got tired of waiting 90 min. past my scheduled time and being told how busy he is. I started going elsewhere but recently scheduled an appointment for my husband. Today was told he would have to be rescheduled 'due to the doctor's schedule'. Yes, husband was on that so-called schedule, but evidently the doctor's schedule is far more important than the patients' after all we are not surgeons (the excuse given by reception).

He was a very good docter he knows what he is doing I have cataract in my right eye and he say that I will have to go back to get more work on my right eye I'm so afraid if some things that I don't understand I just hope that he can get better soon with his help I can do that and I just hope that I can see better in my right eye my name is Paul Gerard Mazzola I'm 47 year's old and 5.6 and I have salt and pepper hair and I like to be funny at time just to get a good ha out. thank you.

I went to Dr. Strecker for an eye exam and eye glass purchase. This was my first experience with him and his office. Everyone at the office was wonderful - helpful and had great patience from the front desk to the optometrist when searching for new eye glasses. Dr. Strecker gave me the most thorough eye exam I have ever received, answered all my questions, and he identified a problem with my left eye undetected by my prior doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I saw Dr. Strecker for Botox. I specifically told him that anything more than 15 units to my forehead would cause lid dropping. He assured me through his technique it would not. Needless to say the drooping is significant. When I expressed my concerns about the dropping as well as the lines returning in just 4 weeks, his solution was to have lid surgery for a mere $2,500-$3,500 as well as a filler to my forehead for an additional $800. Very disappointed. Do NOT get Botox from Dr. Strecker.
