Dr. Starr is very attentive and kind. Very knowledgeable on my condition. He took the time to answer my questions.

September 18, 2019

Dr. Starr was one of the most attentive physicians I have ever seen. My condition is not within his scope of practice yet he took time to ask questions and listen in order to properly referr me to the appropriate care provider. He also did a thorough exam. Dr. Starr even personally called me the following day to follow up with a question and talk more about the referral. I would highly recommend his care.
