in Bowling Green, KY |
Walked in to check on some paper work, was told that the Dr was out of town. Guess they didn't expect any patients since I walked in on Stephanie and 2 others drinking alcohol at the front desk. Been coming for years... Won't be back. No wonder they are always so rude. I'll find a Neurologist with sober staff who can fill out paperwork before a month goes by.

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.
in Franklin, TN |
I went to this Dr. because I was referred to him. I have BCBS insurance which is outstanding. I was supposed to get Botox for my migraines but was told that he would not do it because my insurance doesn't pay enough for him to take the time to do it. I was heartbroken. I thought if a Dr. took my insurance, that was it. Since when can a Dr. decide what worth it to them if they are contracted with your insurance company. I am in pain everyday still.

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.
in Antioch, TN |
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!

We were very pleased. Not fond of having to go to Doctors in general but was very happy to have met Dr. Strickland and his staff. I was treated with respect and he was able to answer my questions. Very nice man.
in Nashville, TN |
Jerk. Offered no answers or opinions after very painful EMG. Dr Strickland said he wasn't seeing me as a Neurologist but only performing tests on the request of my referring physician. He never made eye contact as I described my symptoms and left the examination without answering any of my questions. He shrugged and said good luck. The equipment looked hard used and out of date.
in Nashville, TN |
Went to several Neurologist. None were able to help me. Dr. Strickland diagnosed and put me on a management plan. I appreciate the time he took with me. Answering my questions. I would def recommend him.
in Nashville, TN |
STAY AWAY! Dr. Strickland is a pompous, arrogant, very moody and horrible physician. Not only is his staff rude and lazy but his office is disgustingly old and dirty. I was told I would be scheduled for an MRI and never heard anything back for months. I still have not had my test. I called the office and the hateful with brown hair told me she doesn't know what she can do to help. I wouldn't recommend his office for anything unless you want to be mistreated.
