May 03, 2018

it was such a pleasant and professional experience with Dr. Stars, so unlike my last visit to a rheumatologists. Dr. Stars was willing to listen, was really compassionate and eager to get to the root of my problems. He is so thorough and didn't make me feel like I was just a complainer. I will recommend Dr. Stars to anyone who has similar health issues or someone who is looking for a new internal medicine physician. He's wonderful.
