    I've been a patient of Dr. Starkman for a number of years. My life has changed from being constantly affected by my affliction to being free of it. Aside from having this practice run professionally and thoughtfully, his staff is also super helpful and accommodating. One of the best (definitely on the top of the list) neurological practices in NYC).

    Really listen to my issues and was the doctor that helped me

    I have been a patient of Dr Starkman for many years. He is probably one of the best doctors in his field. He helped me to get my life back. The office staff is friendly. Maggie is a sweetheart and takes care of even impossible requests. I can't believe some of the reviews. It is like we have been to 2 different offices and seen 2 different doctors. I know that Dr Starkman lost a very close person recently. We patients often forget that doctors are also human beings. Would recommend this doc 100%

    I was not at all happy with Dr Starkman ... To start the staff is rude and appear bothered when you arrive... After sitting in the waiting area for approximately two (2) HOURS; Dr. Starkman arrives disheveled with a look of confusion... When i start my consultation i did not feel as if his attention was solely on me.. He looked at his cell phone a couple of times, he accepted a call and i had to reminded him what we were discussing... I truly would not recommend this doctor..

    Dr. Starkman's office does not honor their appointments and constantly cancels and changes them. After they messed up the appointments they tried to make me wait over another month to reschedule my appointment when they made the mistakes and didn't follow through with return phone calls. There apparently is a lack of concern for the patient making them wait another month because they messed up. Would not recommend going to this doctor.
