    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.
