dr Starz is outstanding and caring medical expert. I would not consider switching doctors. he treated my knee yesterday and it feels better today

August 11, 2016

I wouldn't trade Dr. Starz for ANY other rheumatologist!! Although the wait times are often a bit long, it's well worth the wait as I realize that he is giving other patients the same great level of care which he gives me. I realize that your hospital is all about the "move 'em in and move 'em out", but you know, sometimes that just can't be the most important thing.

Dr. Starz is one of the most knowledgeable , thorough, caring, compassionate doctors I have ever seen. He listens and is non-judgemental. Unlike many other doctors he took the time to include my complete medical history. We need more doctors like Dr. Starz!
