After four years of headaches, he listened to us and correctly diagnosed my son. I had been using Atlanta doctors for years that refused to listen. He has changed the quality of our lives and I am forever grateful.

Dr Strait was wonderful! I felt total trust and comfort from the very start. He came up with a strategy for my serious condition and was very good at explaining it in clear, understandable terms. I went into surgery relaxed, certain that I was in excellent hands. His professionalism is undeniable and his many years of experience make him a top neurosurgeon. To him I owe an easy recovery and being here today!

The doctor Timothy Strait to me was a GOD SENT I KNOW IT FOR FACT. All the pain n suffering i went through from first doctor who originally did my surgery. Just my telling Dr Strait where i was hurting he knew exactly where problem was. When he got in there he found he had to finish the surgery the first doctor didnt do. My right arm was going dead but he found first doctor had pinched my nerve running to right arm. I still dont have feeling in my thumb pointer or index finger from pinched nerve
