no bad experience with Dr Starz couldn't ask for a better Dr

April 03, 2017

dr. Starz is always attentive, concerned, professional and delightful. He knows my situation very well and coordinates with several of my other physicians. I really appreciate every thing he does.

April 03, 2017

I waited over an hour and a half to be seen. And that was just to get into the room to wait a while longer.

March 30, 2017

I have a "team" of highly qualified medical providers. I consider Dr. Starz's opinion the most valuable.

March 27, 2017

Always very good

March 27, 2017

I love his concern, but I hate the fact that I never see him until at least 30 minutes after my appointment time.
