Dr. always reviews my medical issues from our last visit, from input provided by other providers and any future issues to address. His intervention is comprehensive rather than single issue directed. He continues to advise and answer my questions.

Dr Starz was kind, thoughtful, and supportive in matters concerning the specific problem I was facing as well as those less directly related.

February 23, 2018

I've been a patient of Dr Starz for close to 10 years, I have complete confidence in the care he is providing me. He gives me the time I need, answering all of my questions and concerns about my health. When I was dealing with the death of my mother and then several years later with the dearth of my husband , Dr. Starz gave me the emotional support I needed at the time.

February 22, 2018

The only problem is the wait once you get to the office. That said, I understand why, as the Dr. spends as much time as necessary for our needs. We travel 3 hours one way for our appointment, well worth it. My wife and I think the Dr. gives us the best treatment we have recieved . Haven't gotten this level of care locally for R.A. and back problems.

Dr Terrance Starz was the best Dr I ever saw.

Dr.Starz was by far, one of the best physicians I ever visited. He listened carefully to my concerns and addressed my questions with thorough answers. He showed compassion and I felt as if he genuinely cared about helping me through my diagnosis.

February 19, 2018

Dr. Starz has been my doctor for nearly 30 years. He has provided exceptional care for nearly three decades. He has been relentless in his efforts to manage my rheumatoid arthritis as well as other health issues that have occurred over the years. Dr. Starz is a world-class rheumatologist.

February 14, 2018

Dr. Starz is a very good physician. I had to call off work because I was in so much pain from a prior injury and there office got me in the same day.

February 14, 2018

Dr. Starz is an excellent PCP who has serviced my medical needs for many years. He is always available and is very knowledgeable regarding my total health care, which encompasses the other specialists I visit. He is the best!
