Patient Comments (5)
in Antioch, IL |
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.

Dr.Starosta is very good i would highly recommend her.She always listens to my mother's concerns and questions. And to mention that she has to communicate through a family member interpretation.Thank you Dr.Starosta for always helping my mother!!!?
in Hoffman Estates, IL |
Dr. Starosta is a kind, smart, and responsive doctor. I have been treated by her for several years and I couldn't be happier.
in Zion, IL |
Terrible doctor that refuses to listen. Avoid at all costs!
in Des Plaines, IL |
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.
