Provider Reviews

Dr. Southard was very informative, he took the time to explain things to me so that I could understand them. I had some issues right after surgery and he was 100% on top of things. I am so glad that he was my surgeon and would recommend him to anyone that needed vascular services.

I see Dr Stark for high cholesterol. His treatment plan is based on evidence, and he orders tests based on that evidence.

Review for Dr. Stark

Dr. Stark really listens well and knows how to explain complex information in understandable terms. He remembers details and follows up better than any other physician I know.

Review for Dr. Stark

He is great! He cares, explains well, and asks about my other problems. He even asks about whether I am taking any trips and checks with other doctors. I go to the Mayo Clinic, but not for a G.I. because he is so dependable and no one at Mayo’s have ever suggested I do otherwise.

Dr. Hill is a wonderful doctor. Besides specializing in oncology, he holds a specialty in psychology as well. He is very compassionate, caring, with excellent bedside manner. He will take the time to explain any questions you may have. I have been very happy with his nurse and himself.
