Great Doctor! But wait time at the office is Crazy and not fare. before every appointment you have to take an Xray and that wait is Approx an Hour. Then you still have to wait another 45 min till you see the doctor. Bottom Line A simple appointment kills a half a day.

Dr. Strauch is a fantastic highly skilled hand & elbow surgeon! Not to mention he is also a medical researcher, publisher & educator at Columbia Medical School. He repaired distal bicep tendon ruptures on both of my arms with ease & excellent results. He has a great personality & takes the time to answer all your questions & concerns. I wish he specialized in other orthopedic areas (other than hand & elbow), I would see him again in a heartbeat!

Great doctor! I was told I would need surgery for elbow tendonitis and he gave me some exercises to do instead. He said it would take a few months to go away and it did. So grateful.

Can't say enough great things about Dr. Strauch. I was referred to him for my complicated wrist fracture. He explained everything and I knew what to expect after surgery. Everything went as well as I could have hoped. He has me back to playing the piano!

Dr. Strauch was terrific. He took his time, explained everything in detail, patiently answered all my questions. His staff are friendly, caring and professional. He personally calls each patient the day before surgery, which is very comforting. If you need to call with questions or concerns you immediately are speaking to someone who can help. I felt I was receiving the best of care the entire time.

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

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 !

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

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.
