Patient Comments (5)

Very caring doctor who always takes time to listen, goes above and beyond to explain test results and even called well after hours to calm my nerves after I messaged her in the patient portal. She has been very helpful during a very nerve wracking time and my husband I appreciate her very much.

I seen Dr. Starosta and was not pleased with her assessment of me. She did no tests and came up with fibromyolga as a diagnois. I just couldn't see how she could do this with no tests. When my own PCP did blood work and said I do have a RA factor totally out of range.

Barb: I am sorry you were not pleased with my assessment. It is not unusual for patients to have 2 different medical conditions (rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia) and I am careful not to add any immunosuppressive medications when clinical assessment (history and exam) is more suggestive of fibromyalgia. I do re-evaluate symptoms as you may progress or develop rheumatoid arthritis. I hope you will continue seeing me and we can continue working together on treatment.
