i really like dr Starr he takes the time with me to make sure i understand all my options and concerns about my health

April 11, 2018

Spent a lot of time with me explaining and answering all of my questions. No diagnosis yet but I feel as if he truly cares about finding the right diagnosis and not sweeping it under the rug or chalking it up to something common. That felt very reassuring and he seems to really care about me as a person, not just a person.

Dr. Starr was so kind and all of our questions answered.

April 04, 2018

Dr. Starr listens very well and offers his opinion only after I was done talking. His advise encompasses my lifestyle and work schedule. He doesn't just tell you what the "text books" say I should do. I have had a few appointments with Dr. Starr and each one is exactly the same, perfect! He takes the time to explain and listen. He doesn't rush you or the appointment.
