Nice man, talented surgeon

I had eyelid surgery from Dr. Strinden and could not be happier. I didn’t like how my eyelids were dropping and I always looked tired, Dr. Strinden was able to fix all of that. His staff is kind, professional, and put me at ease with the entire process. Thank you Dr. Strinden!

Great care for this Canadian.

After being told that we had an 8 month wait for cataracts in Winnipeg, my husband and I decided to drive down to Fargo for our cataract surgery. Dr. Tom and his team were so amazing in the whole process, they got us in for our surgeries in 2 weeks! They helped every step of the way and made us feel so comfortable. Totally worth paying the money out of pocket, our lives are greatly improved because of Dr. Strinden!

Only eye doc we'll ever go to!

Dr. Tom is the best. Takes the time to provide the best treatment ever. I had LASIK from him a few weeks ago and I'm amazed at how much I love it. I'm recommending him to everyone I know!

kind man, skilled surgeon

I had my cataracts removed last month and the process was easy and painless! My son also had LASIK done by Dr. Strinden a few years ago and he hasn't had any problems and couldn't be happier with the results !
