Thaddeus P. Strutwa, MD

PrivaMD’s Neuromuscular Medicine + Medical Acupuncture
“Medical Acupuncture is a low cost, elegant way of managing pain immediately. It doesn’t rely on expensive technology. Medical Acupuncture is like standing at a circuit breaker and shutting off pain one circuit at a time.”

Dr. Srutwa received his B.S. in Psychology from Loyola University in Chicago. His medical school training was completed at the American University of the Caribbean. After medical school, Dr. Srutwa served three years overseas with the United States Army Medical Corps. Upon his return stateside, he began his post-graduate training at Michigan State University, learning Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. After completing his training,
he taught manipulative medicine for several years.

Dr. Srutwa studied Medical Acupuncture for Physicians at UCLA, completed his training in 1996 and continues to take additional acupuncture training on a regular basis. He has practiced in West Michigan since 1996. Dr. Srutwa joined PrivaMD in May of 2019 to provide patients with integrative pain management with an emphasis on his specialty, Medical Acupuncture.

Dr. Srutwa brings to his patients the combined knowledge of Allopathic (M.D.), Osteopathic (D.O.), and Eastern Modalities in medicine. He believes in the reduction of medications and invasive procedures to help his patients get back to their lives without the pain. After an initial assessment, Dr. Srutwa will determine the appropriate approach for treatment which may include modalities like medical acupuncture, cupping, trigger point injections, or osteomanipulation to relieve pain and improve the body’s function. His goal is to improve the balance of your life.

PrivaMD|Physicians FAQs

Care Coordination
Transparency + Accountability.

That’s the PrivaMD way. Whether it be exercised in a Care Team Consult or by securing and managing patient portal data, PrivaMD is highly engaged and collaborative in coordinating their patients’ care.

With longer consultative visits, we will ensure a complete and accurate diagnosis. When there are differing opinions about your course of care, we will work in collaboration with you, and with health care providers to avoid circular discussions and diagnoses.

We will make sure that your entire care team listens to you and is aligned on next steps. And when a specialist is required, you will have a say; and PrivaMD has the responsibility to advocate and align your healthcare providers. PrivaMD wants you to be comfortable with the quality of care that you receive. We are transparent in all that we do.

Flexible + Personalized
How so?

Is My Information Safe?

We offer state-of-the-art HIPPA-compliant platforms that allow for texting and TeleHealth communication with patients—most of which are dropped right in the patient’s chart!
