Dr. Richard H Strawsburg has the following 3 specialties
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Awesome bedside manner, listens to patient, very practical and realistic person. Office environment is very peaceful. His staff are super sweet.
After researching neurologist for my mother, My sister and I chose Dr. Strawsburg. I believe this was one of the best choices we made for our mother. She was suffering from chronic pain, he ran a series of tests and immediately got her set up with physical therapy. We went to the office in Plymouth and his nurse was amazing, she explained everything to us and communicated with my mother explaining all the testing procedures and was accurate on the time frame and locations of the testing. With the following appointments his nurse remembered us by our first names along with talking to my mom about her dog, and her hobby of quilting. There is not a greater feeling to walk in to a Dr office and feel very comfortable as if you are walking into your own front door. Since then I have seen him for my own personal issues and have also told a co worker. Each time all three have never had an issue. Always the same smiling face to welcome us, and a knowledgable Dr to guide us . The only down fall is that we do have to wait quite a while to be seen. He averages 20-30 behind appointment time all times I have been there.
When taking my 10 yr old to see this doctor for the first time he spoke with both of us with great respect. When he could not give an diagnosis on the spot he schedugled more testing and even sent us to another specialist to look at some alternative testing and treatment for some other problems we have going on with my son and school. I have seen his work with other paitents and would highly recommend him. Appts are hard to get if u are on a tight schedugle as he is the only peds nurologist in the area, but worth the wait!
Started seeing Dr. Strawsburg after having ACDF surgery in 2005 and having severe muscle spasms, severe pain and weakness throughout my body. After many doctors and many diagnosis (yes, I've been through it all without any luck in getting better!) he is the first doctor that seems to care and want to find out what is wrong with me.Long wait in between office appointments is the only down side I have experienced thus far with this doctor.
