Ratings for Dr. Douglas L. Stringer
Was never seen on time. Usually it is about about 1 hour past appointment time before seeing doctor. Doug and Mere Stringer (bothers) seemed very knowledgeable prior to my surgery, but after surgery they seemed more concerned with their reputation more than any complications. Many problems post-op but I will share just a couple to save reading. Two weeks post surgery both Stringers denied that I had a staph infection (MSSA) despite being admitted to the hospital and having positive lab results. Seven (yes 7) weeks post surgery, surgical wound still draining. Doctor told me the wound is normal, but he takes swab cultures anyway. When I pick up my medication (for muscle spasms and nausea ,I find he added antibiotics to my meds, without telling ME. I found out at the pharmacy, and this was the same day he took the swabs for my "normal" wound but before the swabs were processed. When the labs are processed 3 days later, the wound is positive for antibiotic resistant staph (MRSA). Results come in on a Fri morning. I get called Monday. IMHO, choosing these doctors to operate on me was the worst decision I made in my entire life.
Dr. Douglas Stringer is the most helpful doctor we have ever dealt with he listens to the needs of his patients, and acts appropriately to help solve their problems. My only complaint is that if something doesn't work, I have trouble letting them know. I leave messages, but never get any feedback on the problem, so I am left in limbo until the next appointment.
