Waltham, MA |
This guy does nothing but talk down to you. Every time I? left this guy i felt worse. And he expects you to wait at least 2 hours for your appointment. If you are late he charges you.
in Boston |
Consistently several hours late for scheduled appointments. Pompous, condescending, and absolutely no interest in patients difficulties. Billed for appointments cancelled by him or his clinicians. This place is toxic. Avoid at all costs.
Taunton, MA |
Appointment time is only an estimate. The only time he was on time I was sick and had to cancel. Was charged $100 cancellation fee. Have waited over three hours in his office due to his scheduling habits
Taunton, MA |
Dr Starr is so booked that you need to call prior to appt time at least 2-3 times on the sceduled day to see when he can take you. As many as 6-8 hours late every single time. He does not listen to patients. He talks above and down to them.
