I had Bilateral knee surgery on Nov.6 and my experience with Dr.Starkweather was amazing.From the day I decided to have the surgery right to the scheduling of my PT and follow up of my surgery. The entire staff was so helpful and there to answer any questions myself and my wife have. We have several weeks left of PT and follow up visits but I can say so far it has been more than I ever expected. The concern of my total recovery at 100 percent has been Dr.Starweathers first concern. David Sykes

I came into Dr Starkweather's office in severe pain in my R hip, after all treatments did not ease my pain we decided on surgery. my sugery was very successful and my pain had decreased to around 1. It has been 3 months since my surgery and I feel like a new person. I am back to doing normal activities and still pain free. I would encourage anyone who is having any joint pain to see Dr Starkweather.

I had shoulder surgery in Nov. of 2015. I was experiencing pain and felt that something was not right, so family members suggested Dr. Starkweather was a very good Dr. I set up appointment and saw him in April, 2016. My husband and I were greatly impressed! MRI was ordered. Results were reviewed, sure enough something was not right! We scheduled surgery for April 19. I am happy to say I am so much better and plan to continue to improve. Thankful for Dr. Starkweather. and staff.

In Nov I started having severe back neck arm and shoulder pain. I made an appt Dr starkweather ordered an MRI found an arachnoid cyst in my brain and referred me to a neurosurgeon. Because of the other doc ignoring my severity of pain I went back to Dr Starkweather. He actually is helping me to find a doctor ..This ia a doctor that you wish was your PCP! He is so kind and listens and I cant say enough. I trust him more than any doctor I have encountered in my life

I had a previous shoulder surgery with a different surgeon in June of '14, it didn't heal well. Something was just not right. In Feb. of '15 the pain was so great, I was back into the ER and was assigned Dr. Starkweather. In my follow up appointment, he ordered a full round of tests, he also listened to me and showed that he cared. I had surgery to correct the issue with my shoulder along with extensive physical therapy and have healed well, and completely. I highly recommend Dr. Starkweather!
