Patient Comments (2)
Chicago, IL |
Not affable, and easily offended when patients advocate for themselves. My appointment with gastro-specialist Dr. Strong started by having him tell me that he didn't have time to look at the CT images I brought to the appointment, as that would cut into the allowed 40 minute appointment time, and ended with him giving me his opinion that I have limited/no surgical options - all without reviewing any CT images or utilizing any diagnostic procedures to verify intestinal tissue functioning.

I was a patient of Dr. Strong at Cleveland Clinic. He performed colon-rectal surgery. 4 days later I was septic. He admitted he did not close my wound correctly. I TNP fed for 6 months. After exam he felt I was healed. Further testing showed nothing had healed. I fired him & chose another doctor. I am 3 years post surgery & will need a procedure to keep my colon open for the rest of my life. He had a horrible attitude. We were disappointed in him and I suffered terribly due to him.
