DR STARZ is theBEST !!!!!

September 11, 2017

Dr. Starz is very thorough and spends a good amount of time discussing health issues and thoroughly answers questions. His staff was very accommodating when I told them I couldn't wait any longer and they took me right back to see him.

Doctor Starz is an exceptional physician. UPMC is an excellent health care provider.

September 11, 2017

The only problem I have is the length of time I spend in the office after the time of my scheduled appointment. I had a 10:30 appt. The wait in the waiting room was more than and hour. After being called back to the treatment room it was another before I was able to see the doctor. The time spent with the doctor was approximately 15 minutes. The total time I spent at the office was two and a half hours. Too long.
