Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Starling "Each patient I care for is personally involved in his or her treatment. No matter what the condition being evaluated, different treatment options are always at our disposal, usually surgical and nonsurgical. I explain those options in easy to understand detail, outlining the advantages and disadvantages of each. Based on my experience and knowledge base, I then make a recommendation to you based on what I feel will give you the best possible outcome, but you always make the final decision."
