Q: What fun facts should we know about you?
A: I love to cook (and eat!), and I love music. I'm also an amateur gardener and guitar player.

This was a new patient appointment for me. I have not been to a doctor for many years because I haven't found a doctor I have felt comfortable with or trusted. I basically gave up on the medical profession & the medical system as a whole due to experiences of family & friends as well as my own experiences. However, I feel really, really, really good about Dr. Strickland. I am so excited about this! I know I have just had one appointment with her, but I immediately felt comfortable with her & I appreciated so much that when I brought up topics that she wasn't an expert in, she said "I'm not as knowledgeable about that as a specialist would be, so I'm going to let the specialist answer those questions." Many doctors act like they know everything there is to be known. I need a doctor who is an adviser, NOT a general or a dictator. I need a doctor to share knowledge with me & let me make my own decisions. If they don't know something, I need them to tell me that. I think Dr. Strickland is a perfect fit for me, & I can't remember feeling that way about a doctor before. I am very, very, very pleased!
