Good experience as usual with attention paid to my needs

September 14, 2016

dr Starz has helped me a lot!

September 13, 2016

Excellent doctor however had to wait over 2 hours from scheduled time in waiting room. The same thing occurred last visit. So my first 2 visits resulted in waits of 3.5 hours and 2.5 hours, which is unacceptable.

My experiences with Dr. Starz have been very good. He is a very good physician. He seems to be very knowledgeable about my particular medical problems.

I waited 2.5 hours to be seen and this is not the first time. The doctor said this was due to over scheduling by UPMC. This is ridiculous and you should schedule patients per what the doctor believes to be reasonable not per your scheduling software or whatever. Dr. Starz is excellent and spends quality time listening to my problems, explaining what is happening, and making sure I understand what is going on. You should respect the time he needs to ensure that each patient gets the appropriate attention.
