Approach

As a sports medicine surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, my goal is to help patients resume their active lifestyles. My practice specializes in the treatment of knee and shoulder injuries. I co-founded the Patellofemoral Center at HSS and have a special interest in disorders related to the kneecap. Although many patients come to see me after injuries sustained while playing sports such as soccer, basketball or skiing, others come due to pain in everyday activities such as walking down stairs. Prior to medical school, I was a ski instructor at Stratton during college and spent a year skiing in Crested Butte, Colorado. I'm an avid skier and enjoy watching my three daughters compete in ski races at Windham and surrounding mountains.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Strickland performed 3 shoulder surgeries on me. This included my bicep tendons rotator cuff and labrums. She is world renowned and teaches at the highest levels. She is at the Hospital of Special Surgeries. I would recommend her to anyone over local Drs. This is her specialty. She does it every day!

How was your experience with the doctor?The doctors office took two weeks to respond back after taking an MRI. Called multiple times to get a std response that someone will call back. Terrible treatment for those who are seeking diagnosis for pain

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Strickland spent all of five minutes with me. She discouraged any imaging beyond the X-ray I'd just had, which showed nothing, told me she would set up a scrip for physical therapy, and dismissed me to pay my bill, without ever really giving me a diagnosis. Four weeks later and I still have received neither an insurance statement or the promised scrip.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Strickland performed my ACL reconstruction surgery a few months ago and I am very pleased with the results. I barely have scars and am on track to be back to playing sports in no time. Very professional and extremely good at what she does. If you need knee/shoulder surgery, she is your lady! 100% recommend her to do the job. Entire staff in her office is amazing - willing to answer any questions you might have and are all very responsive.

How was your experience with the doctor?Back in 2010 or 2011 I had gone to Dr. Strickland to treat my RIGHT knee, as I had some pain. At that time she ordered an MRI and recommended a cortisone shot for the pain. I refused cortisone, mostly because I didn't have enough information to make the decision on the spot. I was happy with the visit. In 2015, I went back to Dr. Strickland to treat LEFT knee pain, for which she ordered an x-ray. When reading my diagnosis, she mentioned that I had swelling in the knee/patella and again recommended a cortisone shot. My response to her was one of surprise, as I was shocked that x-rays reveal swelling in the knee. To which she confessed she was looking at my MRI from years ago, and not the x-ray she just ordered. An honest mistake, I assumed; but what got me was that she insisted on a cortisone shot for my left knee, and all she had was an x-ray. I walked away with the impression that her No. 1 treatment option is to reach for the cortisone, coupled with mistaking my knees and reading an MRI dated from years ago. I'm sure she's a good doc but I can't say I she instilled confidence in this patient.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Strickland was direct, thorough, kind, attentive and explained her perspective on my complaint without condescension, but clearly and with instructions for my personal plan to get well and follow-up with her. She also listened to and answered my questions with patience and respect. She was on time and her support staff (and their administrative systems/infrastructure) rwas amazing. She is the type of doctor who I immediately trust and the reason why it's worth it to go to HSS all the way from central Brooklyn: I feel confident that the opinion is right and that the plan of action will lead to better health, which is inspiring and saves my time and energy for better things.

How was your experience with the doctor?Everything about Dr. Strickland's practice is professional, modern, and inspires confidence. She runs a tight ship and seems to want to give her patients the best possible care and experience, and it shows. Even the x-ray room is right down the hall, beautiful and brand-new looking, with a great view. X-rays are done right before your visit, if needed, so everything is completely seamless. Dr. Strickland's practice is part of the sports med center for women at HSS, and it's great that this practice exists. Every person in the office was kind and competent, to say the least. As a new patient, I can't speak to long-term care, but I was very impressed after this first visit.

How was your experience with the doctor?I've met with a number of shoulder specialists in my life, but Dr. Strickland is one of the few that I would see more than once. She knows her stuff, can explain it well, and clearly has the expertise to provide her patients with confidence. I hope not to have to see her again, but will not hesitate to choose her if I have more issues with my shoulder!
