Oklahoma City Medical Practice Adds Another Family Member


Caliendo, Heather, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Jennifer Strebel started working at a medical practice a few days ago.

Any new position comes with its share of difficulties, but joining her father and sister's medical practice has presented some unusual encounters.

"One time I got a call from a pharmacy and they said 'you are not Dr. Strebel,'" she said. "I told them 'I was and that there was a new Strebel.'"

Gary Strebel he said he never expected to one day work with two of his daughters and his wife.

It started 10 years ago when Sherry Strebel came to the office to help out one day. She's been working there since.

Sherry Strebel is the office manager and makes sure everything runs smoothly at the practice.

"Working with one another takes give and take on both sides," she said. "You have to try and take care of the parent relationship and the sibling relationship and we do a pretty good job of that."

Julie Strebel Hager originally thought she would become a pediatrician. But when she went to medical school she was drawn to OB/GYN because she liked the idea of combining primary care with surgery.

It wasn't until she did her residency in Denver that she thought about joining her father's practice in Oklahoma City. …
