Dr Starz is excellent, very concerned about my health issues and always follows up after appointments to see if medication has helped and condition improved.

I think the world of Dr. Starz. He is without question the most knowledgeable doctor on the care of fibromyalgia I have ever encountered. A consummate professional, he speaks to me on my level rather than talking down to me, and he combines solid information with friendliness an humor, which to me is exactly what I look for in a physician. In the past year, I tried several other rheumatologists simply to get closer to the area in which I live--I have to travel rather far to get to Dr. Starz--but none were able to provide the same level of care and pain relief, so back I went. Quite frankly, it is because of Dr. Starz' care that I have a life I can actually LIVE rather than just survive.

Dr Starz is outstanding in every aspect I would expect from a physician.

I've been a patient of Dr Starz's for more than 6 years. He is always concerned about my physical & emotional health. He answers all my questions & concerns, asking how I'm doing personally, giving me all the time I need. He often calls my home to give me test results. I hope to be a patient is his for many years to come, as long as he's in practice.
