He is cocky and arrogant as if he will never be a patient in his life. A medical degree doesn't make anyone an exception to experience medical dilemma. His disregard for others by evidence of his lack of emotional intelligence is disgusting. He does not believe in having a trusting, therapeutic patient provider relationship, per his words. Proceed with caution, defintely NOT a quality provider. His known facts and experience over patient report. Please leave the field. People need help, not p

I truly believe that I would not have both of my wonderful sons if it wasn't for the help of Dr. Starks. He is an amazing doctor! Very knowledgeable, patient and kind! And I always felt like Dr. Starks was honest, straightforward and genuinely caring!

Dr Starks has come into my life in two stages -- once to address infertility which he did with patience, compassion, and success (18 years ago) and then again a couple of years ago when breast cancer drugs caused a side effect requiring a hysterectomy (which he did swiftly and with care) . I was referred to him both times because he's so well respected and professional. I found him to be kind, selfless, honest, and positive. I'm crazy about him. Good bedside manner and a brilliant communicator.

I found Dr Starks to be rude. During our consultation he made fun of my husband multiple times. I only saw him that one time, and my appointment lasted 10 minutes. Brandi and Karen are not responsive. It takes them a long time to return phone calls, and once I missed my opportunity to do an IUI round because they didn't respond to my phone call ymti the next day. They act annoyed when I ask questions. They said I have PCOS (even though I've had no symptoms) and refused to confirm. I'm switching.

He was unprofessional. Made absolute diagnosed with out ordering any test to back it up. Was rude. And still trying to get the office to bill my insurance and stop sending me a bill for the total. Not going back and finding a new doctor.

Almost 15 years ago I saw Dr Starks for invitro. He had amazing bedside manner, explained things in detail and always had time to listen. Today I am a Mom to 14 year old twins thanks to Dr Starks and the good Lord! I would like to say they are both miracle workers since we only had to do one try and were successful. ;) I cant thank him enough!

Dr. Starks is my hero. He not only made it possible for my husband and I to have a beautiful, healthy baby girl-he made us feel so comfortable with the whole process. He is so knowledgeable, caring, understanding and just a joy to be around. He truly puts himself in his patients shoes, and has such compassion on the situations he deals with. I will be forever grateful for this man, he holds a special place in my heart. My daughter will know about him and the miracle he helped God perform.
