Patient Comments (6)
He seemed to have one of the best for this specialty in the Chicago area. He seemed thorough and a good communicator. When done he said to call him if I have any questions. I called him 5-9X and left a message with his front desk to pls call me, yet I never heard back. She soon suggested I email him, per his instructions she said. I did that early on in the process, but he never responded. I feel lied to and abandoned. I'm a doctor so I can only imagine how he may treat non-doctor patient.

Dr. Stryker was the most attentive surgeon. He took time to explain everything and made sure I was a candidate for arthroscopic colon surgery after I had a hip fracture 2 days before surgery. Everything went perfectly; the nurses on the hospital floor handled me meticulously when they realized I was Dr. Stryker's patient [His reputation for perfection is well-known!]; he is one of the few surgeons who has an ultrasound done on all patients before leaving the hospital to confirm no bloodclots.

I was diagnosed with Stage III Rectal Cancer. I was referred to Dr. Steven Stryker for a surgical consultation. During the consultation with Dr. Stryker I knew that he was the ONLY ONE to help me battle this Rectal Cancer. Dr. Stryker was able to perform the rectal surgery with the GREAT RESULTS. His bedside manner while at Northwestern Memorial Hosp. was OUTSTANDING to say the very least. Dr. Stryker's KNOWLEDGE & CARING MANNER treating me as a patient left me with a LIFETIME OF GRATITUDE !!!

Dr. Stryker saved my mom's life in my opinion. After struggling with recurrent diverticulitis for years (and having a terrible quality of life), she saw Dr. Stryker. He saw her and after testing scheduled her surgery for a partial colectomy. While surgery was not a walk in the park, she is back to her old self now. No more pain, no more weight loss, no more canceling vacations and events because she was constantly sick. We are so grateful to Dr. Stryker and his wonderful team at NMH.

I was diagnosed with Stage 1 colon cancer in November 2013. Scariest time of my life but Dr. Stryker has and always makes me feel better. He is professional yet also still caring. I love knowing how experienced he is and it's so calming to know that I'm in the best hands.
