Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I am sorry to say that after 10 years as a patient my wife and I moved to Dallas and returned to Leesburg after 4 years and looked forward to being under Dr. Stark's care again. As it turns out, we were told that we are new patients and must wait for 3 months for an appointment. We are both due for appointments for prescriptions renewal and blood tests in November. We asked if they could see us any sooner and were told no! We are finding another doctor now.

For over 6 months I was unable to much of anything. My husband thought I was dying, I would get up at 8:00am, take a nap from 1-4 pm and be back in bed at 8:00pm. It was an effort to change the sheets on my bed. It hurt my arms to wash my hair. No one had an answer as to what was wrong with me. My primary physician referred me to Dr. Kenneth Stark. The first visit he looked at my hands and gave me a diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis. He gave me my life back. He is the BEST.
