What People Say About Dr. William Strickland Sr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Agreed. The negative reveiws are not what I experienced. Dr. Strickland spent a lot of time asking questions, explaining, etc. He is compassionate and deeply cares about the well-being of his patients. This is evidenced by the amount of time spent trying to determine what was going on with me.

The office manager was extremely rude. My friend asked me to be in the room before he went in to see the doctor. When they didn't call me back after his initial visit with the DR the office manager said I would have to have a power of attorney to accompany him to his next appointment because of HIPPA policy. She told me it was HER office and that's the way it is. It ended up working so I could meet with the doctor go over everything he had been told but we were there for an extra 30-40 minutes.

Thoughtful -considerate Don't listen to the negative reviews---find out for yourself. Perhaps, the negative reviewers were the problem. I have sat in offices when the people waiting to see the doctor were complete jerks.

DR. GARRISON STRICKLAND IS AN EXCELLENT DR. HE CARES SO MUCH ABOUT HIS PATIENTS, HE HAS A GREAT DEAL OF CONCERN OF FINDING WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE PATIENT AND FINDING THE BEST WAY TO TREAT THE PROBLEM. I GIVE HIM 5 STARS ALL THE WAY.

I would not recommend this office under any circumstance. Their office staff is so rude and unprofessional and completely ruined my entire experience. The front desk lady mocked me and spent more time eating and gossiping rather than doing anything that looks like work.

What are they running in that office? I called for an appt. I was put on hold after she asked to help. Another person "Morgan" picks up the phone with a mouth full of assumptions for the reason I'm calling. None of which fit my description. I explain my reason for the call and Morgan says that she'll get a solution for me and puts me on hold for 32 minutes. If it's not in their box and they don't know how to answer do they blow you off by keeping you on hold to see how long you'll wait for?

Owned by the insurance companies when it come to workers compensation claims, 100% on their side even before he see you, the worst and the most disgusting experience of my life...

Don't ever go to him for workers compensation injury, I call him doctor insurance, he will script everything without even know what work you do, and makes clear your are faking your pain , as he is a workers compensation $$$$$ , insurance companies get what they expect him to say, worse human being I ever met.

He's an excellent doctor! I no longer live in Nashville, but I still travel from out of state to see him. I wouldn't use anyone else.

The staff and Dr.Strickland are very good at what they do. The wait times are short to see the doctor. The staff are very helpful and friendly. My experience with them has been very helpful and I feel I've gotten the best care. Very detailed in giving the best care. I'd recommend this practice 100 percent

Very warm and loving staff. He and his PA's were smart and spent a lot of time with me. The office is clean and have the nice wall boards up. Front desk was clean and the girl was polite. She livened up the waiting room every time a patient walked up. Stephanie helped me get setup with my test immediately so I would not have to drive back downtown. They were all around nice genuine people. I would recommend to anyone!!

The only time I actually saw Dr Strickland was on first visit. Every visit thereafter I saw his physician assistant, yet bill was submitted to insurance company as though I had seen him (no difference between seeing him and PA.). He had MRI and EEG done, then prescribed a seizure medication. Issues got worse. When I last visited his office, my condition had worsened and his PA said to increase medication. The last increase didn't help so why would more. Not a warm and friendly place.

Excellent. I was a new patient and did not have to wait in the hall or stand up in the wait room. The staff were very helpful. I appreciated the Doctor seeing me so soon. Thank you Dr. Elrod for helping me find Dr. Strickland.

Listen to the other reviews. The doctor doesn't seem to care and his staff horrible. They are so rude and after waiting 2 hours in the small waiting room where I had to stand the entire time due to lack of seating, they told me it was my fault because I was a new patient. Do yourself a favor and listen to the other reviews. Find another doctor who cares and staff who will not blame you for their lack of scheduling skills.

I am reporting this guy. Not only did he walk out because my phone rang. He NEVER came back. I was told to call if I needed anything. I asked to talk to the manager who was trying to calm an outburst of an employee. This staff is young, RUDE & curses. The equipment is broken and the offices smell HORRIBLE. This is a sham at best. I question the top reviews. There is no way I experienced what I did and others are total opposite. Go at your own risk!
