Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I try to see Dr. Strauch yearly to monitor a benign finger tumor. He is gentle, receptive to the needs of his patients and does not recommend unnecessary procedures. He is an excellent specialist.

Dr. Strauch examined my hands and determined they weren’t inflamed enough to require injections. He recommended a topical anti inflammatory and soaking in hot water.
