Ratings for Dr. Harvey Strecker
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.
I had a bad fall as a child with broken nose. I called Docor Strecker; the staff were amazing to me. .I felt very comfortable with the doctor; he showed me before and after photos of other clients. The staff were very supportive. THey told me not to worry. I have more confidence in myself; Doctor Strecker did an amazing job. The only regrets I have is that I should have done this earlier. I would definitely recommend Doctor Strecker to any other patieant because how he changed my life. I would love for him to change other peoples lives. And also a big thanks to his amazing staff without their support. I would not have went through with it. The staff were great. THank you Docor Strecker for changing my life. You are truly an amazing doctor.
I was told I needed an MRI. I was to wait about 9-12 months for the MRI, and afterwards call back for another office appointment. The call never came from the hospital to book the MRI. When I called Dr Strecker's office, I was told I would have to wait another 18 months to see him. After the MRI, I went back to see Dr Strecker. His attitiude was rude and bordering on contempt. He said there was nothing wrong with my hearing, even though it is diminished, and when I asked him about treatment for my tinnitus, he said I would just have to live with it. No suggestions were offered. I asked at least 3 times about treatment and each time, the answer was the same. "Live with it." I am now being referred to another doctor. If you check on line, there ARE treatments for tinnitus and hearing aids which may help. I have suffered needlessly for the last 2 years because of him. Perhaps if I had come in asking for Botox, he might have been interested?
