  • “I feel I received excellent care. I consider my surgery a complete success and I would recommend Dr. Strasser to everyone. The nursing staff, X-Ray staff, and scheduling staff were caring and easy to work with. Overall, being a patient of Slocum Orthopedics has been a very positive experience. If needed I would return to their care without hesitation.”

  • “I had two joint replacement surgeries last year: complete shoulder with Dr. Hoelrich and complete ankle with Dr. Strasser. My ratings apply to both doctors who I truly admire for their professionalism and the great job they did in repairing my body. Both doctors were accurate in their prognosis for my recovery time. I was promised by doctor Strasser that I would be able to walk to my first Duck football game about 12 weeks after surgery as well as go on a 10 day fishing trip. Both came true. Both my shoulder and my ankle are now doing great. I have no arthritis pain anymore and my life is getting back to normal activities which I enjoy doing.”

  • “In the last almost 5 years, Dr. Strasser operated on both of my ankles & both knees. All 4 of my operations are very successful. He and his staff are very professional but with great concern. Dr Strasser even called me on a Saturday to see how I was doing, and I had his personal cell #. Thank you Dr Strasser for all you have done for me.”

  • “In 2015/2016 I was a patient of Dr. Strasser for foot surgery and in 2010 Dr. Shah performed hip replacement surgery. I was EXTREMELY satisfied with both doctors. Good surgeons both of them, excellent bed manners. Ready to respond to any questions or address any concerns. Also the supporting stuff was always very helpful. I have nothing but praise for the doctors and stuff I had contact with at Slocum. Hope I will never need their services again, but I will not go anywhere else for orthopedic surgery of any kind if I ever need it again. I have recommended Slocum to many of my friends and they are just as satisfied as I am with the service and the results.”

  • “I was involved in a motorcycle crash that left my right foot crushed, all but on bone broken. For the next 10 days I underwent 3 surgeries to repair the damage; and a fourth 30 days later at the surgery center at Slocum. Dr. Strasser and two other attending physicans from Slocum repaired the damage done in the crash and I am now walking with the aid of a crutch. As my recovery progresses I will eventually be able to walk unassisted and will be back on my motorcycle. All of the care I have received to date from the doctors and staff at the Slocum Clinic has been excellent. They have explained the purpose of all treatments I have received and have answered all my questions in a respectful and friendly manner. Dr. Strasser, Deb Christensen RN. and staff, thank you!”

  • “When I knew I would have foot surgery I was worried. Dr. Strasser's confidence eased those worries. He told me of the risks as well as the positive outcomes. His honesty and assurance helped ease my anxiety. I still have a long time before I'm fully recovered, but I know that all will be well. He is one of the finest surgeons I've known.”

  • “The doctor and his staff were very helpful in making my experience comfortable for me. I had a series of 5 injections, (one per week for 5 weeks) in both of my knees. These injections help me deal with arthritis in my knees. The doctor was quick and the injections were painless. These injections will probably work, for me, close to one year or more. The nurse that works with Dr. Strasser is very caring and made sure all of my questions were answered, even if I called from home. This team gave me the best care a person could ask for.”

  • “Came to Slocum for second opinion for ankle replacement surgery after being told by another orthopedist that my BMI was too high. Met Dr. Strasser, who instantly instilled confidence to me, said replacement would be his recommendation. Had the surgery June 2, 2016 and upon awaking had no pain whatsoever. Recovery at home and physical therapy and I am free to do what I want only 3 months later. I would highly recommend Slocum and Dr. Strasser in a heartbeat.”

  • “I had a total knee replacement in January, 2016.  Dr. Strasser was everything I would hope for in a physician....professional, caring, knowledgeable, and kind.  I can't say enough good things about him. My knee replacement went smoothly, and I healed quicker than I imagined.  No problems. Christie in physical therapy was wonderful, encouraged me to press harder to get my mobility back in such a nice way. My experience was so positive, that I would highly recommend Slocum to all.”

  • “I waited far too long to have my ankle replaced because of a couple of very poor outcomes from surgeries much less complicated. From beginning to end, through my initial doubts and then my second opinion in another city, I was treated with nothing less than complete kindness and respect. Every single person who assisted me made me want to listen to their every word so I could heal and return to my life as quickly as possible. Here it is nearly 7 months later and my ankle is still pain free and I'm able to move about like I haven't for nearly a decade. Dr. Strasser himself is the most knowledgeable ortho I've seen and he communicates warmly but honestly, succinctly but clearly. He is truly one of a kind. I have used his name, and Slocum's name, many times as others have remarked on my "miracle bionic ankle" and how quickly I healed and returned to work.”

  • “First, I was delighted to find that I could have a new ankle joint rather than fusion, and then when the whole process began, I was impressed with both the staff and the facility. Everyone, from Dr. Strasser and his assistants to Debbie the wound nurse and all the technicians  involved, was highly skilled and a pleasure to work with. Although the process seemed to drag on longer that I had anticipated, due to my age and diabetes, the end result is spectacular. I limped along with a cane and ankle brace for the past few years, so the increase in mobility and freedom from pain has been wonderful. I tell everyone that if I knew how to dance, I'd finally be able to.”

  • “My Worries, that I needed surgery, and post op recovery, were gone from the very start when he told me that extensive physical therapy would be the first order treatment. I used Aqua Pool Therapy 3 times a week for 6 weeks, and saw virtually 100% pain relief. I am continuing aqua therapy, 2 times a week, to continue rebuilding the muscle tone of my hip, and over all body as well. I am very happy with the results, as well as the very good "bedside manner" he had, I felt he was dedicated to me as my doctor, even though it was my first appointment. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing his care.”

  • “Dr. Strasser has been excellent. He is knowledgeable, professional, and has strong interpersonal skills. When I am in the examination room I feel that he listens carefully, asks good questions, and examines the knee or foot that I am there to see him about. I have recommended him to several friends.”

  • “Dr. Strasser, his PA and MOA provided exceptional care each time I came in for an appointment. Dr. Strasser explained in depth the surgical repair of my Achilles, recovery and physical therapy process. Your OR crew and recovery staff are excellent. I would highly recommend Dr. Strasser and Slocum. Of note, I have been a Slocum patient for many years.  I have always found your staff to be friendly and helpful.  We are fortunate to have the quality of Slocum Physicians in this community.”

  • “This is my second visit to get a shot in my ankle. Dr. Strasser was very sensitive and performed the injection with much needed pain and relief... Can't have the relief without a little pain. Very good work to Dr. Strasser and his helpful staff, especially the nurse attending to my prep work etc.”

  • “Everything about the experience was positive. Every single person I dealt with was kind and efficient. I couldn't have had better treatment. The people in the "casting" room were great. I especially liked being able to choose the colors (pink & red) for my toe to knee cast.”

  • “Very experienced and friendly people at Slocum. Dr. Strasser is very nice. I had surgery right below my left ankle. I was on my feet less than six weeks. It was that amazing because everyone in Slocum Center treated me so well. Thank you very much for your kind support.”

  • “Dr. Strasser was very thoughtful and compassionate. He was honest and informative about the condition of my foot and the treatment plan moving forward. My husband often works with Dr. Strasser and has nothing but great things to say about him. I would agree whole heartedly. Thank you for a good first experience at Slocum.”

  • “Greetings to Dr. Strasser and Your Marvelous Staff, Just wanted to send you a couple of pics of my trek to the top of Diamond Head Crater on Oahu, HI. About half way up, it dawned on me that it was one year to the day, October 9th, 2014, that you fused my ankle. I guarantee that I would not have been there on my old ankle. The two mile round trip hike on uneven ground includes 300 stairs, a spiral staircase and an unlit tunnel. My thanks go out to you and your staff.”
