Dr. Theodore J Strange has the following 2 specialties
- Geriatric Medicine
A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.
- 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.

I find him arrogant and uninformative. In all of my years of going to different doctors, he is by far the worst!!! He stands at the farrest end of the room and does not even take your blood presure. He doesn't communicate and stays less than a minute and tells you nothing. I had to track him down to get my question answered as he couldn't get out of the room fast enough. I have waited in the exam room for him for up to a half hour while he saw other patients who came in after me. I could here him talking to them and timed him...I got 30 seconds and they got at least 10-15 minutes. I am not a difficult patient, but if I am sick, I want an answer. I am convinced that the more favorable ratings were done by him. Sad, but true, he is the opitomy of what a doctor should NOT be. I have moved on to another doctor. Someone should let NY Magazine know that he is definately NOT one of the best doctors in NY and if I could have given him a lower rating I would have.
