Review of Dr. Petkov

-Seattle, WA |

Dr. Petkov is my daughter's obgyn. During her pregnancy he was responsive to her needs. He performed her c-section and I witnessed how he took great care of her and my granddaughter. After delivery Dr Petkov continued to provide exceptional care

Such an amazing doctor. Explains everything with detail and takes great care of his patients. Very grateful he delivered my baby and he has such a great attitude. I definitely would recommend him for anyone.

Review of Dr. Starkey

- in San Tan Valley, AZ |

Dr. Starkey is AMAZING!!!!! I have been a patient of her for over 15 years. She delivered both of my boys and I continue to see her for my well women check ups. She is very thorough and makes you feel very comfortable. She is one of the best doctors I have visited. Highly recommend.

Review of Dr. Starkey

- in Gold Canyon, AZ |

I don't like writing bad reviews about people, never have, but this is necessary. The delayed cord clamping was discussed and ignored. She didn't want to be there. Our baby came out while she was five feet away and not paying attention. She just wanted to do an unnecessary c-section. She is rude. Hospital staff referred to her as Dr. Snarky. The nurse at the hospital was great and we should have let her handle the birth. Thank you to the great hospital staff at Banner Desert Medical Center.

Review of Dr. Starkey

Worst Doctor ever. If your looking for a welfare type clinic then this is perfect for you. If you are looking for care, concern or a professional environment, I'd advise looking elsewhere.

Review of Dr. Petkov

- in Mesa, Az |

This was this was my first time having an appointment with him. But I have to say already so far he has been an amazing doctor. He listened to my concerns and my questions and answered every single one of them in detail so that I could understand what was going on. He took what I had to say and put it into action. I would definitely recommend him to others. And I'm glad I found him since I have tried elsewhere and was not satisfied.

Review of Dr. Petkov

- in Mesa, AZ |

I rate 5 stars because Dr Petkov delivers what he promises. He is as strongly biased as any poorly trained medical professional. Thus, I will never recommend him to anyone because the people that I associate with do not blindly follow one statistic (mean, median) while ignoring the others (SD, variance). Worse, ignoring variance as he does stops him from considering the patient's data and status, thus fitting his patients to his belief system of means and damaging the patient during journey.
