I value my personal relationship with Dr. Fairey more than I can express. I used to go to him before he went with MDvip in 2007, but did not follow at that time, as I was in good health and didn't think I needed to join. Then, I had a bad experience with the doctor I went to after that. She didn't take my complaints (for 3 years) seriously about a condition in my ear, and didn… See more

Dr. Fairey is a caring, experienced, competent, and responsive physician.
We are very fortunate to have him as our primary doctor.
The best primary care Doctor I've ever had and I've had many. Dr. Fairey is as rare as my illness. You will never find a physician who listens and cares for his patients like this man. He's kind. Humble for someone of his intelligence and I can't say enough about him or his office team.
Dr Fairey was also Mom and Dad's doctor. When Dad was stricken by Alzheimer's Disease, Strait is the one we turned to when we needed help convincing Dad it was time to stop driving. Later when it came time for Dad to leave home to go into a Memory Care unit, Strait helped get Dad to go. After he'd been in Memory Care for over a year, he suddenly started having trouble holding… See more
When I asked to see Dr. Fairey due to a problem with my (L) shoulder, I saw him the next a.m. Within 5 min, he suspected a torn rotator cuff. X-rays & an MRI were done in one week with a call from him to refer me to an orthopedic surgeon. He recommended Dr. John Graham, got an appointment & opted for surgical repair. Dr. Graham scheduled it 5 days later, had 6 mos. physical therapy… See more
Dr. Fairy found hematuria at my annual exam and referred me to the right people who subsequently found that I had carcinoma in situ of the bladder. My Urologist treated me and two subsequent follow up biopsies have found that my tissue is now clear, My life has been saved again. I have also survived an AAA! I have moved recently to Wilmington, NC and have a local physician who has told me that… See more
At age 67, I can say unequivocally that Dr. Fairey is the best doctor who has ever treated me, and that includes my dentists, eye doctors and all the others! He tries (and succeeds) in developing an easy going, one-on-one, highly professional personal relationship with his patients. This is important to me because, when it comes time to visit the doctor, I am the world's worst coward.… See more
About 40 years ago I was suffering from depression and had no clue what was wrong with me. I remember like it was yesterday. The first few visits all I did was cry and talk to young Dr. Fairey. I have always told my family and friends he saved my life. His diagnosis and treatment over all these years have always been
correct. He is a wonderful doctor.
Dear Dr. Fairey,
When I first moved to Charleston and was seeking a family practice physician, I asked my neighbor for recommendations; at the time she was a nurse ombudsperson for patients at Roper Hospital and I figured she would know who was good. She didnt miss a beat, immediately recommending Dr. Strait Fairey as a really good doctor, capable of much but also one who didnt… See more
