I would absolutely recommend Dr Starr. We had an issue with my fiance he needed to be seen asap, the front desk lady was so nice and so helpful and got him in as soon as she could. Dr. Star put out minds at ease and explained everything in a way we could understand. He was professional as well as friendly and funny. I knew we had come to the right place. Very thankful.

IF I could put a zero down, that is exactly what I would give him. Impossible to get on the phone and during the COVID times the phone is sometimes the only way to communicate. Treating my sister for a stroke, she's 53 and this is her third stroke, and he is cold and uncaring. DID NOT take care of her at all. I have a meeting with him tomorrow and will try and see why he was so heartless when it came to her. Left her in a VERY BAD situation. Instead of dealing with the issue and trying to resolve it, he restrained her and left her that way for 36 hours! I am a critical care nurse and have never seen so much neglect, just cause it was a weekend?? Can't answer, ask him!
