Stop your search for podiatrists and book an appointment with Dr. Strash. He is incredibly adroit and I assure you that you will not regret it. I had avoided seeing a podiatrist for my uncomfortable big toe nails which had grown into mean ingrown nails. As a runner, I became discouraged as I wasn't able to stay fit or go running due to my stabbing jagged nails. I also felt awkward always requesting to get my toe nails out at a salon knowing that's not really their job description (to be a mini surgeon). After watching enough ingrown toe removal videos I knew at some point I would have to get this done. I had built up so much anxiety about the whole process that I became obsessed with reading reviews on podiatrists. I have been diligently looking for a great podiatrist for about five years on and off and I was willing to travel even outside of the country to find someone. After much research, I was willing to travel to Canada where there are ample podiatrists who had thousands of testimonies, stories, and everything that I was searching for in a doctor. I then came across Dr. Strash who was on the same Canadian list of doctors. I decided to drive from Austin to San Antonio to see him. After explaining to the assistant why I waited so long on and how I was willing to travel to Canada, I learned that Dr. Strash is in fact from Canada. This cracked me up and made me feel so much better due to my personal research. As far as the procedure itself- yeah, it hurts, but just the needle which injects the novacaine. After that you don’t feel a thing, promise. The healing process which is up to the patient to make sure we keep it clean and soak it. I did experience pain that night as the injection wore off and called the doctor at a very late hour. At that time, I had built up enough of a good rapport to want to finish the job on my other toe. This time I had a very quick and painless recovery. The real results will be years from now to determine if this was a success or not. Until then I will say this was successful so much to the point that I could trade this man out with a family member. Dr. Strash really impressed me with his bedside manner. I even asked him to help me trim down my toe nails especially since I felt uncomfortable about infection risk and judgement at a nail salon. Overall, I am very passionate about getting this issue resolved and feel like I could become a ingrown toe nail removal spokeswoman, honestly. The bedding of your big toes have nerve connection throughout your body and I immediately felt a difference with my jaw and my TMJ has subsided. Thank you for existing and if you are in need of a podiatrist, rest assured you found your doctor. Personal note: Thank you Dr. Strash and Brittany (surgery coordinator) for holding my hand and being explanatory human beings towards someone who has a fear of needles.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Strash and his staff. From the first time we met I knew I'd be in good hands. Since I'd never had surgery before I had a lot of questions and Dr. Strash was always ready to answer them. My surgery went well and my foot is doing so much better. Highly recommend!

Dr. Strash is an excellent podiatrist. I highly recommend him to anyone with foot or ankle issues. Or if you are interested in preemptively preventing issues from occurring. The staff is very friendly and the wait times are short.
