Dr. James Starman performed arthroscopic surgery on my right knee (torn meniscus). It was VERY painful to walk and work before my surgery, but afterwards I have almost no pain at all, which should dissipate within a few mos.. His office staff is wonderful. They don't even charge for office visits for 90 days after surgery, as long you don't need any other medical procedures. I only needed about 2 1/2 weeks of phys. therapy plus home exercises. His asst., Casey, is great, also!! I am 63.

As the result of an accident on Christmas Day 2016 I smashed my left humorous (arm ) . At 76 years of age and with a number of complicating issues ( heart, blood thinners, and a fever I was running , etc ) My family and I were more than a little concerned about the serious surgery I needed. Dr. Starman took a great deal of time preparing me and great care before and after the surgery to insure a great result . I am an attorney and a tough critic of doctors but Dr. Starman is simply the best .

Dr. Starman repaired my massive shoulder fracture, this happened 5 months ago and I'm back riding my horse. He saved my life, this injury was catastrophic.

I am a retired teacher with a history of knee problems. My wife and I are snowbirds and I needed to find a doctor as my knee had me to a point where I could barely walk. I found Dr. Starmams by chance 2 years ago on the Internet and made an appointment. The results were beyond excellent. Recently my knee was acting up again and I had a second appointment April 4, 17. The results are the same and I will return to this office for any further problems. Great staff and the PA was excellent.

I will tell you this from a military veteran that has a few surgeries. Dr. Starman was straight forward and told me that best and worst case about the surgery! He did an awesome job and I would recommend anyone to visit him. I have referred my friends to him.

Dr. Starman did surgery because I fell and fractured my humerus. All I can say is he is a really nice man. Great bedside manner, very informative and very easy to talk to. I will definitely be going back for all my orthopedic needs. His office staff is also very nice and very efficient.

I had Rotater Cuff surgery about 4 months ago and I can't believe how great my shoulder is. It feels great and I have almost full range of motion. I am still receiving physical therapy at this time so my range of motion should be back to full soon.

Very professional and relates well with his patient. Staff is very friendly and helpful all around great experience.
