Dr. Strauch is a wonderful and thoughtful physician. He explains everything very clearly and making sure I understand everything. I feel very comfortable asking questions. Dr. Strauch is very knowledgeable, professional, and caring surgeon who truly cares about the patient and takes the time to follow up after the test is performed and through the course of patient therapy treatment. Doctor Strauch- no words are enough to appreciate the service you do. You as a doctor and the staff at your clinic @ 51 West 51 Street has been really helpful and supportive! “The secret of awesome recovery is a doctor who is extraordinary “ Thank You Doctor!

Thank G-d that I was referred to Dr. Strauch, when I slipped and basically shattered my wrist just before the beginning of Rosh HaShanah (the Jewish High Holy Days). When I contacted Dr. Strauch a few days later, he was out of town at a medical conference, but realizing the extent and seriousness of my injury, he saw to it to return earlier than planned so that he could do my surgery in a timely manner. Dr. Strauch did an amazing job on my wrist, but even more so, he is the consummate professional with the perfect attitude and mannerisms. No question was ever too small, and he was so helpful and encouraging during all of my follow-up visits. Thank you Dr. Strauch.

Dr. Strauch is extremely responsive. He did a super job fixing my finger fracture but he actually listens well and always responded quickly to any questions I had when I called his office. He even called me himself the night before surgery to make sure I was ok. Highly recommended!

I was a pedestrian hit by a car but luckily all I broke was my pinky finger and got a few scrapes. Turns out it was a funny type of break that needed surgery. Dr. Strauch and the hand therapist I saw did an amazing job in helping me get my finger motion back. I have recommended Dr Strauch to many people since then and they have all been extremely happy with his care.
