Dr. Janet E Strain has the following 3 specialties
- 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.
- Cardiovascular Disease
Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

She treats you with the concern and compassion of a friend. She speaks to you ... not at you. Her knowledge and skills keep my mind at ease.
Dr. Strain seems to be a decent cardiologist but her office's practices are not desirable and could end you up in the morgue. She operated on me and I visited her office several times but because of my business travel schedule I was not able to see her one year after my last visit. Repeated calls to refill my heart medication were denied. So I called her office and made an appointment but they could only schedule me 2 months after I called and they told me they will send my pharmacy a refill prescription after I had already ran out of my medication. Several days later after repeated calls to her office I was told they cancelled my medication because I did not see her within one year. I guess I can wait a couple of months and if I'm not dead or paralyzed she might give me a prescription for my heart medicine!!!!
My mother wound up at Valley Hospital after going into heart failure on the very same day I was coming up (from DC to New Jersey)to take her for a surgical consult for aortic valve replacement.She is very anxious and because of this she sounded like she had dementia to the surgeon who came in to see her. He declared her a bad surgical candidate because of this.Dr. Strain came in and talked quietly with my mother , which calmed her down and she was able to see that she was totally clear headed, just extremely anxious! Dr. Strain performed a cardiac cath to see if my mother had vessel disease. Beforehand, she explained everything to me and also spoke to my sister-in-law(who is also a cardiologist in Arizona) on the phone. All of this really reassured me as I was very worried about my mother having a cardiac cath in the first place.Especially since I didn't really know the doctors in New Jersey.I was actually reassured by her good ratings on this site, so I decided to post, in case my review can give someone else reassurance.I would sy she spent at least an hour more of her time than many other doctors who am have been in the same position. And talk time is in no way paid to her by Medicare or any other insurance.
