I have visited a plethora of psychiatrists over the years; I can honestly report that Dr. Straun’s practice has been the most beneficial of those I have visited. He believes in providing proper and appropriate medication, regular therapeutic sessions (both one-on-one and various, themed group environments), and the power of mind over body, all in equal parts.

He shares his knowledge and opinions in a manner that allows me to use the information as a means of developing and expanding my own, instead of forcing a rigid belief structure on his patients, a practice that has resulted in incompatibilities and conflict with prior psychiatrists I have visited. He is knowledgeable in the well-established, long-held treatment theories of the psychiatric community, while remaining educable and regularly searching out newer, recently theorized or published treatment options that may be applicable and beneficial to his patients.

His practice does not have a disdain for technology, as many older psychiatrists do; they use Google Calendar event notifications, text-message prescription refill confirmations, and regularly check and respond to email and phone messages. The staff is communicative, courteous, and helpful, handling matters efficiently and competently, while not blocking-off or obfuscating direct communication with Dr. Straun himself when required.

I cannot say enough great things about this practice; one-on-one and group sessions have proved critical to my continued mental and physical growth, and he has helped me to understand myself and others better, allowing me to tailor my reactions and thoughts appropriately instead of reacting to situations solely based on the initial feelings felt.

If you are looking for a psychiatrist that will listen sympathetically, speak honestly, and treat you with respect and dignity, Dr. Straun should be at the top of your list.
I’m 57 years old and have struggled my whole life with emotional issues and addiction. I’ve seen many mental health professionals and haven’t been very happy with their services until I met Dr. Straun. This man offers multiple services and truly understands how our minds work. He’s great with meds and has been instrumental in my sobriety. More than anything, he’s very responsive when things aren’t going well and makes himself available when you need him most. Today thanks to Dr. Straun and his team, I understand my emotions and my addiction better than I ever have which helps me maintain my sobriety and my overall health. You cannot go wrong with Straun Health.
Dr Straun and his staff are like none other. My transition to Straun Health and Wellness started at a difficult time, as with many. As I try to think of words to describe my experiences over the past 2 years with this office I reflect back on some of the worst times of my life. If you want to find your typical industry standard treatment center, this definately isn’t for you. If you want to find someone that will give you the skills and processes of living a better way of life Dr Straun and his team of exceptionally professional staff have an approach that works. I have experienced multiple consecutive years of genuinely better living as a result of them. If you are in a place any where near where I was when I was first in contact with doctor straun, he is well worth giving a fair chance. There approach is upfront and logical. I have witnessed first hand many success stories in this office.
AWSOME Doctor!! He really took the time out to explain what was going on with my body ... my very first visit he made me feel very comfortable about taking the next step in my treatment... I was truly at the end of my rope and I am so grateful to have found such a wonderful educated doctor!!
I’ve been seeing Dr. Straun for over 2 years, he is the best doctor I have seen, he’s very kind and easy to work with. If it wasn’t for him I don’t know where I would be right now.
Very compassionate, thoughtful and intelligent doctor. A combination that is very rare these days.
When I searched for a psychiatrist, all I could find were elderly gentlemen. I have NO problem with an older physician, but I wanted to find a younger doctor who uses “cutting edge” techniques. I found Dr. Straun and I am SO happy I called him! He gave me a DNA test in order to find out which medicine would work best for me. This has saved me much time, aggravation and expense.

Dr. Straun has a kind an amiable manner. He’s intelligent and a consummate physician. I trusted him immediately. While he’s candid about my health issues, he is never patronizing. I recommend him whole heartedly! He has a website that I suggest any potential patient visit. He offers several services, including acupuncture.

What I also consider important is that I have a good rapport with his staff. Camille is a nurse who is exceptionally kind and understanding. It’s always a pleasure to speak with her regarding my appointment, a prescription refill, etc.
Great Doctor first visit made me feel confident about our new treatment. On my way to recovery.
