Dr Strauch did a thorough exam on me and suggested a non surgical treatment which cured my trigger finger. I am delighted!

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.

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.
