Dr. Gerald L Strope has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Pulmonology
A pediatric pulmonologist is the go-to resource for children who need treatment for any kind of breathing issue or lung disease. If your child coughs up blood, has a cough that isn’t going away, or displays other symptoms such as trouble breathing, chest pain or wheezing, you can ask your doctor to refer you to a pediatric pulmonologist.
Common conditions and diseases they treat range from noisy breathing, asthma and chronic coughs to lung disease, apnea and cystic fibrosis. They can also diagnose and treat cases of pneumonia in children and prescribe any kind of respiratory medication or equipment your child might need.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Finding Dr.Strope has been life changing for us, and our daughter. He has helped our daughter progress to a level that many other doctor's didn't think that she would be able to. Many doctor's told my husband and I that our daughter would most likely not survive, and that if she did, she would not have a quality of life. Needless to say she has proven them wrong. When we meet Dr. Strope he did not tell us that. He told us that our daughter had a long way to go, and that it would be a long and hard road for us. I will be honest, I really didn't know how to take him at first, but it didn't take me long to understand why he does things the way that he does. If your child is in the hospital, you will see how strongly he advocates what he wants for his patients, and there are no exceptions. Every time we take our daughter to see him for follow up visits, we can see how much he cares for our daughter. You can tell that he does his job because he loves it, and not for any other reason.
Dr Strope is a wonderful doctor! I was warned ahead of time that he is a very straight forward person, which, for me, was great, when my newborn baby was turning blue. I don't need soft and cuddly. I need someone who is going to gently, but honestly tell me what is going on, what tests are being done, and why. I feel like he fully informed me of what was going on with my child, explained things to me, without treating me as if I was the child, and then with that knowledge, he and I were able to easily agree on treatment. Don't get me wrong, I of course did tons of research after every visit, to see if what he told me was the general consensus with the medical community, and it always has been.
