The process seems slow. I want to better control my menopause and/or thyroid symptoms, and it seems I always need "one more blood test" before we can talk. [...] we haven't addressed the issue I came in for.

Dr. Streja is the whole package. He is knowledgeable, friendly, competent, and a great listener. He should teach classes in patient care.

It has been very difficult to get timely proper treatment. The procedure is cumbersome and no human touch.

Dr. Streja is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a doctor. Nurse [...] is also one of the best medical professionals I have seen. I have moved out of the area. I drive an hour to see them because of how good they are.

Dr. Streja is a wonderful doctor and diagnostician. I went in to see him, on my regular doctor's day off, and I was in extreme acute pain. Dr. Streja was patient, kind, and in one-touch knew exactly what my medical problem was. He instructed me to stop taking certain medications, and routed me to referred care with precision. Dr. Streja was both kind and highly knowledgeable, with an appearance of little effort. He was more focused on talking with me, to assure me everything would be ok. Dr. Streja's nurse is also absolutely fantastic - very sweet, great energy, and obviously dedicated to the patient.

This was my first time to visit your office and Dr. Streja. I thought he was very knowledgeable and explained things well, although, with his accent sometimes he was hard to understand but I just asked the question again so it was no big deal. And he seemed to have a good sense of humor.

Waited over an hour for appt. [...] a phone call as a courtesy would be nice. Also, complained I was always tired to Dr. He immediately asked if I was depressed. Doubt he would have made that comment if I was a man.
