Ratings for Dr. Allison C. Strnad
I have seen Dr. Strnad for a few years now and have always found her very helpful, patient, and insightful. She has cared for me through 2 pregnancies. She and her staff always make me feel very comfortable. She explains my options for care and gives her recommendations. However, ultimately she lets me decide on what is best option for me.
I love Dr. Strnad. I moved to Nashville 5 months pregnant and couldn't have found a better, more caring, competent, helpful Dr. I loved her staff as well, who remembered me when I came in, joked with me, and were comforting. Very happy to have found them.
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.
