Success Stories From Our Patients
What our patients say
We would like to honor Dr. Strickland for her recognition of my daughters (h) EDS and for sending her for Genetic Testing. We received the good news that she didn’t have Type III(Vascular) and the bad news of BRCA 1 mutation. However, that enabled us to get Olivia into the MSK screening program. Please encourage EDS awareness at HSS. You were FAR from the 1st doc Olivia saw. Thank you for your insight.Olivia's Mom
I just wanted to take a moment and share my story and wonderful experience with The Womans Sports Medicine Clinic and Doctor Sabrina Strickland at the Hospital for Special Surgery. As you can see, I am not “local” to NYC. It is an effort to come to Manhattan, but the effort it well worth it.
The entire experience at HSS has been positive and singularly focused on getting me back to sports. I cannot thank you or Sr. Strickland enough for giving me my life back…
I had such a thoroughly positive experience undergoing my recent knee arthroscopy that I must share my thoughts with you in writing. Most of my career has been in 24 hour intense B2B service businesses and I have a high standard for what delivering good client service looks like. Clearly, so does HSS.

As someone who uses a wheelchair, and who has a very active life style, healthy shoulders are vital. I have returned to skiing, kayaking, and wheelchair marathoning and have fully resumed my normal activities.Kirsty
You want a doctor that will think outside the box, and think about what’s best for the patient, and not take the easy way out. Dr. Strickland did this for me.Rachel Bender
I’m sending this message to truly thank Dr. Strickland and all of the staff at HSS. Before this surgery I had no idea what the future held for me. I’m 9 Months Post Op and have been able to pick up right where I left off. None of this would have been possible without every member of the HSS staff who had a hand in my recovery. I’m forever grateful for all that you have done for me. Here are a few pictures of myself from our last game. Hope all is well and God bless.Jerrell Antley
I can not thank Dr. Strickland enough or recommend her more. I live in Philadelphia, and it was hard working with insurance but everyone was very accommodating.Rachelle Smith
I came to Dr. Strickland scared, anxious, and in immense pain as a result of a significant shoulder injury. From the outset Dr. Strickland balanced compassion and kindness with extreme thoroughness and competency. She recognized right away that my situation required a sense of urgency and in facilitating an immediate MRI she was able to quickly uncover and repair an issue that would have likely caused lifelong pain had it not been corrected in a timely manner.Carrie Craig
My experience with working with Doctor Strickland has been amazing. She has stuck with me through two injuries. I tore my right meniscus my junior year in high school and she made my experience and adventure to recover easier to cope with. When I tore my left meniscus last October in my first year of college, I went to see her and she treated me with the same respect and wanted to help me recover as much as I did. It was not just Doctor Strickland that made the experience fun though. She has a great staff behind her and they all make one feel welcomed. I listened to everything she said and now today I stand stronger and run faster and am able to play my favorite sport again, which is basketball. I thank Doctor Strickland for everything she has done for me and I would recommend the whole world to her if I could. All I want to say is thank you for sticking with me through these tough times and I know if anything ever happens again, I am going to come right to you.Kenny G
