Excellent Doctor, he took care of me like he know me, very detailed, and he will stay with you no matter how long it takes. I was really amaze with him and definitely recommend him. I had a lot of neurologist, this was the first one that I felt was also a human being. And I am with him already 5 years and will keep him as long as I need a neurologist.

Dr. Starosta is like no other doctor I have. He truly cares about & respects his patients. He listens, not just hears. He answers all questions completely, taking whatever amount of time his patients need. Yes, the visit is likely to take longer than a visit to your typical doctor, Dr. Starosta is giving each of his patients the same care that he will give you. But the wait (& for me, the drive time) is well worth it. I feel great just knowing that this doctor is truly there for me.
