Patient Comments (7)

Too bad there's not a 0 star option. Don't waste your time with this provider. We brought in my son with a hematoma in his ear from wrestling. After 2 visits and an $1100 bill, his ear looks worse than before. Wouldn't recommend him to anyone.

I took my daughter to see Katie Starns for ear infections. I found the staff to be very professional and appreciate Katie taking the time to explain to me what options we had. I will definitely return.

Seeing Dr. Waters is a waste of time. They need your medical records to see you, but don’t tell you until it’s too late.
