Never had a doctor spend so much time with me explaining exactly what was going on and what the plan for treatment was. Dr. Straughn is an incredible physician and I feel extremely lucky to be under his care.

Distant Bedside Manner

I found Dr. Straughn to be distant and emotionally uninvolved. Personally, I think a Dr. should be a little more in tune with his patients suffering. A little sympathy goes a long way especially when dealing with cancer.
