Waiting time.


Excellent doctor.


Dr. Strowd is very knowledgable of my condition and one of the rare physicians who know about this disease. This is comforting as he also knows about my type of cancer as well. My oncologist and PCP are in Greensboro as is an Orthopaedic Surgeon I was recently referred to. When the surgeon recommended I see a neurologist, I requested Dr. Strowd. He's the best!


Good experience.


*Dr. Strowd, listened to my health concerns - took time to show xrays of issues in my body - ordered more detail MRI's for confirmation of issues.
