Dr. Stark replaced both knees and fixed both shoulders in the past. Just checked in about my hips and don’t need surgery. Total confidence in him and great results in the past!

I was referred to them by my dermatologist for a cyst on the back of my knee. She said it was a Baker’s cyst. I wasn’t seen by the doctor first and was brought back for xrays. I questioned them as to why I would need x-rays first since I had not seen the doctor. The lady said this is what the doctor prefers. Turns out I really don’t have a problem with what they thought I did and told me I needed to go back to my dermatologist for the cyst/lesion. I can’t imagine what the bill is going to be for the office visit and multiple xrays. This could have been avoided if the doctor examined me before ordering x-rays. I’m sure he’s a fine doctor, but I wasn’t happy with the way things were handled. Needless to say, I will also be switching dermatologist.

It is very clear that Dr. Stark loves what he does. He was unbelievably polite and professional. He had a lot of enthusiasm for his work. Dr. Stark gave us a wonderful amount of important information about my daughter’s injury and did so without trying to dumb down the content. My daughter and I were very impressed with Dr. Stark and would highly recommend him.
