Dr. Strong always makes sure you understand your illness and what has to be done to fix it. when scans come back he calls immediately with the results. I can't say anything bad about him or his staff.

Dr. Strong and his assistant, are beyond professional. Too little time to explain but two of the greatest people I've met in my lifetime. This cancer was life-threatening and Dr. Strong truly saved my life. Northwestern Medicine is the greatest place to have care, concern and genuine love. This isn't an exaggeration as I'm generally not a very nice person. Thank you to all the staff at NWH

Dr Strong is great. I am lucky to have a doctor who cares about me & wants to be certain he answers all my questions. I have complete confidence in him & his team. Plus, I arrived early & he saw me early. That is so rare from a doctor.

Dr Strong was not only extremely knowledgable, up-to-date on research about my condition, and thorough in his explanation; but he was kind, compassionate, friendly, and patient. Meeting with him regarding my surgery was sincerely life-changing and I am so grateful he was recommended to me. Finding a surgeon like him is so very rare. Thank you Dr. Strong!
