Ratings for Dr. Steven J. Stryker
Dr. Stryker is extremely knowledgeable and straightforward. He answers any and all questions completely and stays with you every step of the way. He stays in touch with your other doctors to be sure everyone is clear on treatments, etc. I highly recommend him.
From the moment I met Dr. Stryker, I knew that I was in good hands. He is an A-Team Doctor and Surgeon. He is well known as the best at what he does. He made sure that I understood my upcoming surgery, he recommended additional excellent Doctors and Surgeons that I needed and he kept an eye on all treatment that I received.
I was diagnosed with Stage III Rectal Cancer after a routine colonoscopy examination . Needless to say my worst fear had come to a reality that day. After consultation with an oncologist in Chicago I was recommended to Dr. Steven Stryker for a surgical consultation . I made the appointment to meet Dr. Stryker . The examination and consultation with Dr. Stryker was a day I will remember . I was shell shocked after the diagnoses of Rectal Cancer and after a few moments with Dr Stryker I had believed that I had found an EXCELLENT SURGEON in my battle with this disease. Dr. Stryker explained his surgical procedure in a most comforting yet well informed manner . After leaving his office after the initial consultation I was GREATLY RELIEVED in knowing I had a surgeon who saw me a patient and not just another number. After my radiation sessions I then had my Rectal surgery performed by Dr. Stryker . He was there in the surgical recovery room at my bedside when I awoke assuring with the utmost kindness that the surgery went well in his view. Dr. Stryker visited me each day I was in the hospital following the surgery making sure I was on the mend again giving me his caring & professional attention. While in the hospital there were patients who only saw there're surgeons after the surgery just once with Dr. Stryker it was every day. After leaving the hospital with an temporary elostomy pouch I went home to recover. Eventually after some months Dr. Stryker then performed the elostomy closure surgery. The day of the surgery there was Dr. Stryker at the hospital to greet me with his caring & professional demeanor that I've come to expect. After surgery AGAIN Dr. Stryker was in the recovery room at my bedside assuring me that the process went well in his usual GREAT CARING MANNER that I've come to expect. Each day after the closure prosedure in the hospital Dr. Stryker was there checking to see how I was progressing after surgery. After being discharged I went home to begin the chemotherapy sessions as part of my final treatment program. It has been 2 yrs. since my surgery and my Cancer is in REMISSION !!!! I am TOTALLY GRATEFUL & BLESSED to have had Dr. Steven Stryker wth me by my side in my battle with this Cancer. I am FOREVER GRATEFUL for a Surgeon who treated me not only a patient but a CLOSE FRIEND !!!!!! Gratefully S. Martin
