in Bronx, NY |
when no other doctor wanted to take my case because it was too difficult, DR Robert Strauch came to my rescue . I injured my hand on a construction site fall of one story. I went to 4 different hand specialist and they all said it was beyond their expertise. Dr Robert Strauch was the one who took me in,explained the operation and condition of my hand. He took his time with me,never rushed and let me ask all the questions that I wanted. It turned out to be a six hour operation. i fully recover
in Old Bethpage, NY |
I had carpal tunnel syndrome requiring surgery. I would routinely get awakened at night with severe pain in my hand. Dr Strauch explained everything about the Carpal Tunnel and the surgery. He was very pleasant and caring. He personally called me on Sunday the day before the operation to reassure me and make sure I had no questions. After surgery I had no pain and the hand pain at night was gone. I did not even need 1Tylenol. 1 month later there is virtually no scar. He and Columbia were great !

Fantastic doctor!
I would definitely recommend Dr Strauch. He really listened to me and recommended some hand therapy which has me feeling better already! His office was also a pleasure to deal with.
in North Bergen, NJ |
This was a first time visit and was a surprisingly pleasant experience. The office staff and doctor's assistant were courteous and waiting room was nice. Dr. Strauch made me feel at ease, did what I felt was a thorough examination, asked a lot of questions, went over all the options and answered all my questions and concerns. I felt like he genuinely cares about his patients. Overall I was very pleased and would highly recommend Dr. Strauch.
