Again, Dr Stricsek explains my health problem to me in lay terms. He’s never rushed and spends quality time with me. He also helped me to understand options to manage my pain & improving the problem as near 100% as possible.

He took the time to ask questions and listen to my answers. He explained every aspect of the test results and possible solutions to my current situation. Also provided the next steps needed to try and eliminate as much pain as possible.

From the very beginning he initiated a professional yet casual and understanding relationship. Great listening skills! Would highly recommend and have done so already. I had spinal fusion and am still recovering but he has made the progress so much easier.

He listened to my situation addressed it completely and I was out the door very competent doctor I was relieved to see he was a little older than the picture he had up where he looks so young as I don't trust young doctors anymore

Not only did he do a good job on my back, but his explanations of the condition of my back and what needed to be done were very clear. He has a great bedside manner and anticipated my needs as I live in Michigan (some four hours away).

I had initially met Dr. Stricsek on the Internet. To meet him in person and experiencing his professional examination and patient responsive comments to my questions made my visit the outcome I had hoped for.

Dr. STRICSEK is a hero in my book. He correctly diagnosed my spine problem and preformed the required surgery. Now, 3 months after surgery, I am almost pain free and rarely take meds. I feel like I have been given my life back. I am looking forward to traveling again!

Very professional, friendly, and considerate, taking the needed time to answer all our questions. Does not make us feel like he is too busy to discuss medical options and procedures. Very thorough.

He was courteous and friendly. Very patient & clear in explaining things. He obviously had done his homework and was familiar with my case at the beginning of the visit even though I was new to the clinic.

I came to Northwestern because I wanted to be in a teaching hospital. I selected Dr Stricsek based on his record and could not have been more pleased. He was easy to talk to and addressed all my concerns. He never rushed, giving me his full attention. He discussed his decisions on the surgeries with me in detail so that I knew what to anticipate. I would definitely recommend him to any family or friend needing a spinal surgeon.

Dr. Stricsek is very conscious physician . He checks all the facts given to him by other physicians, then he does his own research and order tests before he he informes the patient his own findings. I am happy to be among his patients.

Dr. Stricsek too the time to review some of my records beforehand and made sure all my questions were answered. I appreciated that I did not feel rushed. When he didn't know the answer, he provided me with the right people to visit next. He seemed genuinely interestred in helping me.

Dr. listened to me. What I told him was important to him. At no time did I ever feel like I was being talked down to or just a number or a paycheck. Doctor was amazingly precise explain things clearly and making sure that I understood what we were doing and why. His team has the utmost respect for him and he has the utmost respect for them. The care I received from him was just simply over the top wonderful. I'd also like to add, that when the surgery was said and done, and I had gone home, with only follow-up visits afterwards, his team answered my calls, returned my calls, checked to see how I was doing. It wasn't just while they were in business hours, it was at all times. He left me feeling as though not only did I have a future I didn't have to take all the steps by myself.

External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
