Dr. Starkman listened patiently to my concerns, provided a thorough examination, and came up with a course of treatment that has proven to be very effective. I highly recommend her to anyone suffering from arthritis pain.

I couldn't walk, couldnt go to church, wear my heels or do any type of activities. Now I can do all these and more. She takes her to time with me, she is an excellent diagnostician. And she cares for me and loves me. She is an excellent Dr. I will recommend her to anyone even to Donald Trump.

Dr. Starkman is a wonderful diagnostician. She explains what your problem is and what she can do to help you. She explains what medications are best for you and gives the best injections. I feel very confident in her knowledge and how she cares for me as a patient.
in Palm Beach Gardens, FL |
Dr. Starkman is fantastic and has restored my faith that there are wonderful, knowledgeable and caring physicians in Florida. I travel 60 miles round trip to see her. One of the most important traits a good no great doctor can have is the ability to listen to what the patient is saying. Dr. Starkman has this trait. I have no hesitation in recommending her to my friends and family. In my professional life as an R.N. I have come in contact with many physicians and she gets an A plus plus from me.

In response to prior review patient wrote they waited ahour and didn't get a treatment that they paid over$ 160 for without knowing in advance . The patient paid for the medication so they had to know what it was for but if not should have asked and received an explanation prior to paying for it . In terms of the wait, it is not the policy of the office to make people wait. Perhaps there was emergency or patient didn't have proper authorization for visit from primary MD office. Sorry for wait
Lake Worth, FL |
Waited in the office for 1 hour while I was the only patient there. She had no answer as to why I was waiting. She could not answer any of my questions. Would not recommend her to my worst enemy. Staff did not know what to do & were not friendly. Gave me meds that had to be injected and never told me. I wasted $158.
