Ratings for Dr. Harvey Strecker
Dr Strecker fitted me in at the end of his surgery as an emergency. he accepted me at very short notice and I had my consultation at 6.30 pm when he should have already finished his long day. He was very professional, caring and helpful, giving me as much time as I needed to ask questions. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Strecker and his staff.
I was hesitant about septoplasty given what i had read online about the surgery. Dr.Strecker himself weighed in on the benefits and risks. I prefer surgeons like him who don't guarantee perfect results while omitting the risks. What stood out the most about him was while I was asking him 10 questions a minute he never once seemed irritated or impatient and after I went through my list, he asked me if i had any further questions for him and to come back if I did. If he doesn't know something he'll tell you. The surgery went off without a hitch and I was very well taken care of by the staff at the hospital.
Very rude and dismissive doctor. I've had chronic sinusitis for 4 years and saw multiple doctors and even brought recent CT scans for my appointment . He just said he can't diagnose me and would need me to redo CT scans. Wouldnt answer questions and kept saying "I dont know".Felt like i was a difficult case for him and he didnt trust my patient history, and even refused to refer me to another specialist when i asked. I was naive to trust good reviews here and asked my doctor to see Dr. Strecker. It turned out to be a waste of time of going all the way to White Rock and very unlpleasant experience asking him for help. Dont waste your time on seeing him for Sinusitis unless you need botox or fillers (he might be nicer to these patients)
Dr Strecker is amazing! I came in to see him in May for a deviated septum, and walked out knowing I wanted him to perform my Septorhinoplasty surgery. He is very knowledgeable in his work and made me feel comfortable by answering any questions I had. Dr. Strecker has performed a handful of surgeries and he showed me many before and after pictures of his patients which made me feel confident with his work. My surgery was scheduled the first week of July and Dr Strecker said I can come in prior to my surgery date if I had any more questions. It has been three weeks since my Septorhino, and not only can I breathe better but I love how well my nose is healing and its appearance. My friends can't tell I've had my nose reconstructed but they do tell me I look different. The day after my surgery I came in for my appointment almost two hours early at my mistake, the receptionist was kind to call Dr Strecker to ask if he can come in earlier to see me, and he did! Overall, I am happy with Dr Strecker's work and I would recommend him to anyone who's looking for a great surgeon.
Dr. Strecker performed sinus surgery to correct a blocked sinus. He did a fantastic job - in fact, by the next day you couldn't even tell I had surgery done. The organization of his office and staff is the best I've ever seen. The surgery times at the hospital are preset into their computer system, so you know right away when you are getting the surgery done. He does as many follow up appointments as needed to make sure everything is going well, and you never feel like he is rushing you out the door. It's rare to find a specialist with such a good bedside manner. Excellent choice.
