excellent physician

August 20, 2019

Dr. Starz was extremely helpful and attentive concerning a recent serious health problem which i have developed, for which i was very grateful. This was not an issue in his specialty, and i felt that he made a major effort to consider my symptoms and give an opinion on my medical care to date.He is an excellent physician.
