Specialties

Dr. David J Straus has the following 2 specialties

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Avoid him at all costs. Nasty, arrogant, rude are words that are not strong enough. Find someone else.

I am an NHL patient of Dr. Straus's. I've been seeing him for the past 23 years. I'm still here because of him. He is an excellent doctor. I have kept seeing him during years of living in Hong Kong, the Netherlands and now California.As long as he's practicing I will be his patient. My husband and I count him as one of our most precious blessings.

Arrogant, inarticulate, no detailed analysis

I would not recommend him. Be careful - he does not do detailed analysis of each patient's idiosyncratic body and circumstances. He is dismissive of questions and of elderly patients. He is callous, cold, and comes across as socially inept as well. He makes hasty decisions and seems bored of his job - must be just looking for his retirement funds to vest. He has no reason to be arrogant because he is below average.

Arrogant and below average rating - do not recommend

He should not even be called a doctor. He is not a practitioner - he doesn't realize that theory in the real world doesn't always work. And ...
