As always my relationship with the doctor has always been good; Dr. Starz does believe in telling you the truth - which is very good. At least he cares enough to be extremely honest with me.

November 03, 2016

Dr Starz is an intelligent, compassionate, teaching physician. He is basically a teacher. He explains my condition, diagnoses, medications in a manor that I understands. When I first went to him he spent hours reading my extensive medical record. I know this because he asked me questions about what was in my medical records.

November 02, 2016

I have been going to this provider for years. He always takes good care of me. He answers all my questions and provides me with information concerning my health. The office is pleasant and everyone who works there is so pleasant.

November 01, 2016

I've been a patient of Dr. Starz's for over 7 years, he answers all you question, relates to my physical needs as well as emotional needs. I would highly recommend Dr. Starz to family and friends and have on several occasions.
