I have nothing but the best to say. I had my knees replaced in 2006. Still going strong. I’ve read a lot of reviews about him, I still think I have the very best surgeon for me. He is a no-nonsense Dr. Direct and to the point on the diagnosis. I recommend Dr. Strain highly.

I was referred to Dr. Strain by my primary care physician for an uncommon hip problem. Dr. Strain took time to explain what the problem was, what the future course of action would be, and why surgery wasn’t needed.


No more hip pain for me!

No more hip pain for me! You are the best, thank you so much. My hip hasn’t felt this good since I was in my 20’s! Highly recommended.

My wife has been seeing him for years. I’m glad I finally took her advice and went to him. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else to my family.
