Dr Starz

Dr Starz is great at helping me manage my arthritis. I see him rushing back and forth in the hallway between the exam rooms, but when he is treating me I feel he is very attentive and thorough. Wonderful doctor and patient advocate.

He is so genuine, full of compassion and hope. As is the staff.

Dr. Starz is the best. He takes time to explain things using language that is easy to understand. He is obviously tremendously knowledgeable and he cares about his patients. Overall a terrific physician.
