WE have been Dr. Stark's patients for many years. He has always been kind, informed, and attends to one's questions and needs. We are incredibly sad that he is leaving Chico. The community that gets him is lucky indeed.

Dr. Stark has been my doctor for many years. I think he's a very good doctor and takes more time with patients than many doctors do. I would highly recommend.

Kristen Wilson – Jul 03, 2020
Dr. Stark has been my G.P. for just over seven years. He is always professional, empathetic, and respectful in all of my appointments - qualities that can be difficult to find when you need medical attention. I appreciate that he takes my concerns seriously and has referred me to a specialist when I happened to have a medical issue that was outside of his expertise. Great doctor and human being.

Dr. Stark is amazing, he has been our family dr. for years now and I have never had a bad experience. He is kind and gentle and is always looking for answers and not just a band aid for what is happening. Couldn't ask for a better dr.

Listens well. Tries to treat source of problems rather than mask it with medicine. Pleasant demeanor. Seems to really care about the patient.
