I have had 2 areas of concern that were taken care of by Dr. Starling. Both times he put me at ease with his knowledge and care. As a wonderful Doctor, I also consider him an artist in this profession as I had an area previous to my last visit that was a bit more challenging to work on and you cannot even tell there was anything done. Thank you!!

My experience with Dr Starling was wonderful. I thought he was very pleasant , very courteous, very knowledgeable in what he was doing. When he first came in the room he explained everything he was about to do & really put me at ease. I would very much refer him to anyone for any dermatology work that had to be done.

My wife and I both want to say thank you to Dr. Starling and his staff for there prompt service in reference to my health issue. The staff is wonderful to work with and cannot say enough good things about Dr. Starling. From the first visit to the last visit he was professional but with such a great sense of humor and willing to listen and chat during the visit making us feel like human beings and not just a patient. I would recommend Dr. Starling to anyone in need of his help.
