Dr. Starz is caring, compassionate and always listens to my concerns. He took a lot of time with me and I was having a lot of pain for several months.I am the reason he was late seeing his next patient, he took time with me I needed. I left the office with a plan of care and he has me feeling confident that relief is in sight. He is the best.
