I had been a patient of Dr. Tipton and on her retirement scheduled with Dr. Strickland. This was my first visit with her. she seemed rushed or preoccupied Nd while asking the standard "so what do u do for a living" question I mistakenly answered that I was a project manager at TMobile. she immediately launched in to a never ending rant about issues she was having with her service, scam calls and how she had spent hours prior to seeing me on the phone with T-MOBILE customer service. All while performing my exam. I mean, was she paying attention.? Are my breasts really ok? Do u know what it´s like to have someone´s hand up your vagina feeling your uterus while discussing their cell phone issues? no way...not cool.

*Dr. Strickland was wonderful. The doctor I had seen before her didn´t inform me of what was going on so I was slightly concerned but *Dr. Strickland was amazing at explaining everything so I could understand.

wished I could have spent more time with the provider. Felt rushed in a way and could not ask questions at the end.

I feel great confidence in Dr. Strickland. I think she´s seen it all so was able to help right away. Here manor is honest and efficient and she took the time to listen, think about things, and move forward. I am happy to have found her.

Dr Strickland takes the time to talk to me and is aware of what is going on in my life.

I was very pleased with the doctor. She is not warm & fuzzy, but very thorough with information. I would definitely see her again but with the experience I had with the medical assistant I´m not sure. 2. Doctor. 3. Doctor. 4. Doctor. 6. Doctor. 7. Doctor. 8. Doctor. 9. Doctor. 10. Doctor.

this was the worst experience at a doctor I´ve ever had. she was rude and did not listen to anything i had to say and dictated to me what was going to happen rather than discuss options with me. she mentioned a surgery and putting in an iud while I was under but this was the only mention of a surgery which freaked me out. she did not knock when I finished changing and just walked in. she did not warn me before inserting the speculum and just ripped out the iud without warning. then left and did not warn me what to expect. I will never see her again and will tell everyone i know not to see her.

Provider had to leave the room several times while I had a spectrum inserted.

The procedure was described to me very well and I felt perfectly at ease with the doctor.
August 2017
She was dismissive and seemed annoyed with my concerns.
June 2017
I explained all the treatments and tests that I have done and she told me I needed to see a GI. It felt as if they thought I was dumb. I told her I had been tested for PCOS and she made me explain to her what that is....? I felt insulted, I told her I had a non existent period the month before and that was of no concern. she didn´t talk to me about one thing other than seeing a GI. I had to ask her if she would at least test the urine sample I gave for pregnancy as I had a lack of period. I feel like she had no concern for my health or wellbeing. I was very upset after leaving. I would never see this doctor again as she has no interest in my health or helping me to better my health.
