Ratings for Dr. Allison C. Strnad
Dr. Stnad's staff is amazing and friendly, especially Daphne, however I can not say the same about her. I did not have the easiest pregnancy and she did not make me feel at ease during the process at all. She talked to me in a very demeaning way and did not address any of the issues I had. For every concern I had, I had to get a second opinion. Long story short....I decided not to have her deliver my baby at 36 weeks pregnant and instead take the risk of not finding another doctor. This alone should let you know how much I trust her during my pregnancy.
I would not recommend this doctor for gyn issues. Dr Strnad dismissed the intense pain I felt during intercourse. She also spoke in a demeaning manner to me during the appointment. I told her that I had been doing research and informed her how I felt my pain matched some of the conditions I found. She told me that I should never do research on the internet and that some of the pain I had was most likely just from using the wrong size tampon. (I am a doctorate student in the health field, I know if my pain was that simple I would have figured that out. I also firmly believe that patients should be their own health advocates and if a doctor discourages that advocacy it's because they are not a very competent medical professional.) She did some blood work on my hormone levels, when I requested those results to be sent to an endocrinologist, she said that it wasn't necessary to do that, though as a patient that is how I wanted to proceed. I found the WISH clinic in Nashville, where my pain was taken seriously. After medication, physical therapy, and consultation with an endocrinologist my pain is almost completely gone.
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Strnad. We were as high risk as they come and she was able to deliver a healthy baby and even though I had severe complications, she was able to save my uterus AND my life!! She is super laid back and optimistic, so if you are looking for a grim and overly "informative" doctor, she is not your gal. You want knowledgeable, honest, and even a little fun--Dr. Strnad all the way! Wish I could have another baby safely, I would use her again and again!
Dr. Strnad is the BEST!!! The nurses are great and very friendly. They are so personable and friendly. I actually looked forward to my appointments. Every appointment I felt like I was talking to friends. Dr Strnad is VERY professional and always took the time to be there and talk. Never in a rush. She made me feel important and like she genuinely cared. I can't believe there is another woman doctor in Nashville that is better than she. I will forever recommend her to any woman!
