What People Say About Dr. James Starman, MD

Dr. James Starman is exactly the kind of doctor / surgeon that I was frankly PRAYING for after falling BADLY one Friday afternoon in late February 2018 after work, in my own garage, tearing my quad muscle with chipped bone still attached from my right kneecap. Ouch! I wondered, "how is THIS going to end up?" Having Dr. James S. Starman as my surgeon and his office at The Center for Bone and Joint Surgery in Wellington, FL made all the difference! I'm walking and recovering fully; a superb Dr.

My daughter saw Dr. Starman for a second opinion in regards to a knee diagnosis for surgery. I was thoroughly impressed with him. He gave a very clear and detailed understanding of my daughters prior diagnosis. I left feeling very comfortable with his plan of action for her situation. What a relief! I highly recommend him!!!

Very difficult to get any assistance through staff. More interested in charging for additional tests than helping with actual issue.

Dr. Starman is great- I had a tear of my meniscus and excruciating pain. Dr Starman did a surgery to remove the torn portion. I was on my feet the next day, and within two weeks was back to playing golf, almost pain free! He explained everything to me and made me feel at ease. Would highly recommend him to anyone who needs knee surgery (already have!).

To say I had a great experience with Dr Starman and his staff is an understatement. I resigned myself to what everyone said was one of the most painful surgery and recovery time I would ever experience. I had rotator cuff repair and tendon reattachment surgery. Thanks to Dr Starman and his staff all the stories were proven wrong. I would highly recommend Dr Starman to anyone looking for a highly qualified surgeon and support staff. I am back to work without any restrictions or deficits.

Staff not good at answering the phone. staff doesn't like to be bothered. On two occasions, I told the office staff that the wrong insurance was listed on my prescription. They had no interest in getting it corrected.

Dr. Starman has been wonderful. Everything he explained about my husbands surgery was spot on. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out, the damage was extensive but he has had little to no pain since the surgery. We have been very impressed with Dr. Starman and highly recommend him and his staff.

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.
