Very condescending. Told me I needed to “think about” a tubal ligation and refused to perform it. I’m 37 and should be respected.

Dr. Starr is the best OBGYN there is in Indy and his nurse Kelly is awesome. They were very patient, attentive, and resourceful. They made me comfortable during my 1st pregnancy and they answered all my questions and I never felt rushed during my visit. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a great doctor with bedside manners. He's transparent and he never recommends medicine or testing that is not required.

Very unprofessional and rude; in handling families going through emotional stress. Very lousy. This doctor will show up late and tell his patient that "he makes visits/rounds when he makes rounds and no schedule here" after a long waiting of a post-partum mother be seen so she can proceed to go see her child at the NICU.
