Leesburg |
Dr. Starks is a friendly, likeable person with excellent bedside manner, not to mention a highly skilled surgeon. He always treats me with respect and makes good conversation. I've had multiple testopel procedures with him now and despite being nervous, every time it's been almost painless, fast, and the incisions heal quickly without scaring. I highly recommend Dr. Starks.
Newark, NJ |
Outstanding Dr. Polite, knowledgeable and extremely friendly. I think these other people have the wrong Dr. Thanks Doc for everything.
Dumfries, VA |
My husband had a reversal 2.5 years ago. Dr Starks was not the best with his social skills but we trusted him when he boasted about how successful he's always been with his surgeries. On the follow-up Dr Starks showed little tact in just telling my husband that the surgery hadn't been successful. He didn't answer any of my husband's questions and left it at that. Such a disappointment. My husband is still in pain after 2.5 years. Everyday. The whole experience was just terrible and sad.

I had the worst appointment with Dr Starks. Did not have explanation or discussion, when I asked the nurse He was so rude a said taking to me. I had to ask the nurse about how take the medicine. No recommend.
in Ashburn, VA |
This guy is the worst. He only wants to get you out of his office ASAP.
in Purcellville, VA |
My experience with Dr. Starks is by far the worst ever. He could not get me out of his office quick enough. When I tried to explain my symptoms he just cut me off. Then all of the sudden he said he would grab a brochure to describe my pain and would be right back. He sent his nurse to give me the brochure. I asked his nurse where did he go because we were in mid conversation and she said that he was with the next patient, if I had more to say she would give him the message. I will never go back!
in Leesburg, VA |
After surgery, I suffered from an issue known as Urinary Retention. In a great deal of pain, I called my personal physician. He advised me that a catheter was required and told me to call my Urologist, Dr Christopher Starks. I phoned Dr Starks' office and spoke with his nurse Shaneeka. The time was about 2:15PM and I live 15 minutes from Dr Starks' office. Shaneeka told me that Dr Starks would not see me and that I should go to the hospital Emergency Room.
in Herndon, va |
He could not wait to get out of the consultation room before we could finish our questions. We had to send the nurse to remind him of the prescriptions he was going to write. Avoid this doctor at any cost
in Ashburn, VA |
Was friendly and personable through the process. During the 1:1 he answered my questions to the level of detail necessary.
in Sterling, VA |
Worst appointment I've ever had. No explanation or discussion. Had to ask the receptionist how to take the medicine! Real piece of garbage.
Fairfax, VA |
they just wasted 2 month of my time waiting for my surgery, after 3 calls, still no answer
in Centreville, VA |
I scheduled a vasectomy. They delayed. Then they rescheduled. Pushed it to Dec 31st, the end of the year and the last day before my deductible resets. I cancel plans, take time to show up, but they won't do the procedure, they just want to talk about it. I dont need them to explain a simple procedure which is well known and easy explained on the internet. They wasted my time, and my money, but worse Dr. Starks was dismissive and unapologetic.
