Dr. Struth was able to determine by studying my medical history & asking a few pertinent questions the cause of a serious reaction I was having for which my allergist had put me through a horrible gambit of tests & found no definitive answers. My allergy to aspirin was noted in every chart for every dr. I'd visited the past 30 years, but he was the 1st to help me figure out how to adjust my other meds, diet & even which items I can't allow to touch my skin in order that I may lead a nearly normal life. He is the only doctor I trust to understand which new medications can be added safely to my regimen, & he is helping me find the right balance to manage my life with osteoarthritis & fibromyalgia. He can be swamped with patients at times, so will try to sum up your situation quickly. If you have trouble remembering things quickly to answer when people ask you questions, then you'd better bring a list of your concerns, symptoms, current meds, etc. When I 1st became a patient at this office, they had a different billing clerk, & there have been some discrepancies that were made & needing clearing up recently. Some of what the previous clerk had told me regarding my med coverage allotment to their office was mistaken & it is costing me more than I can pay all at once to fix it. But they are trying to work with us on that.
Dr. Al-Shroof & his NP, Gerald, are 2 of the kindest & most capable health care providers I've ever had the great fortune of knowing. Their breadth of knowledge is astounding (Dr A-S reads more journals than I was aware were out there - & I'm in the medical field, too!), yet they don't rely only on what they already know, but research & consult others when there is even a slight uncertainty. They also each listen - truly listen - & do not apply "cookie-cutter medicine" to anyone's case. Sometimes the wait is long, but that is only because they are each spending extra time w/a patient who, for whatever reason that day, needs it. My husband used to grumble until he saw their reaction to an emergency &, since then, says he is glad to wait however long it takes. He now knows that if he ever needs it, it will be willingly given. They each diagnosed conditions multiple specialists either missed totally or had been unable to figure out. Gerald & Dr. Al-Shroof did not stop until we (yes, I was part of the team, not just a lump on the exam table) figured out what was happening, & then how to fix - or at least better - the situation. Even previously diagnosed conditions are continually monitored & obviously considered when I'm not at the office, as new comfort measures or treatments are sometimes suggested, though that's not my main reason for a visit, that day.
nice clean office and exam room's with tv's to watch while you wait for the doctor. friendly, efficient front staff and nurse's. wait time may be a little long but some patient's have simple health issue's while other's have more complex health matter's that the doctor is addressing with each of them. and when this physician enters your exam room, he is focuses on you and your concern's and the best treatment available for you. this is a good, compassionate and knowledgeable doctor and i would place my life in his care any day of the week without hesitation.
