I was a patient of Dr. Strickland's twice. First, I got a 2nd opinion from her via the Grand Rounds (GR) program, which costs $800, all out of pocket. That was a disappointment. It took me 2-3 hours to talk to the doctor that intook all the information I provided for Dr. Strickland to evaluate, because I had seen so many doctors and PTs previously, and because I provided so much information. Once I was informed Dr. Strickland was selected for by GR consult, it was less than an hour later when she responded. It would have been impossible for her to review even half of the information I provided in that time, let alone process and evaluate it. The response I got back was completely unhelpful and I received no new information from it. It genuinely seemed like the response was phoned in, with no real thought and attention put into it. A month after that consult, I saw her in person. This was another disappointment. No attempt was made to explain why I have the symptoms I do. Injections were suggested, when I don't have joint pain. I just have tendon pain, and a severe feeling of misalignment and weakness - no explanation was offered for these symptoms. She also recommended blood flow restriction therapy - to help develop the parts of my quads that feel dead. She said I could try it at the PT facility in HSS. I got to the PT facility that day and they told me I couldn't just TRY it, I could only do it if I set up a bunch of appointments to do it regularly. Sorry, I'm not driving 3 hours each way 2 times a week for that. And there literally isn't a facility that offers blood flow restriction therapy any closer. How could she not know her own PT facility wouldn't even let me try it? How could she not know it's not offerred, basically anywhere else? I don't think it would have helped anyway. It's just a stretch of a suggestion to get me to leave. Just like all the other doctors I have seen at HSS, no actual analysis of my symptoms is performed. No one at HSS has done a single thing to try to explain the cause of my symptoms. I have tried to contact Dr. Strickland, but I was told she does not speak to patients on the phone. Many other doctors do.
