What People Say About Dr. Steven Starr, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
I had a heart attack late June 2017. Dr. Starr came into my hospital room at North Kansas City Hospital and described my condition to me and advised me of the exact procedure I was going to have. After my procedure, he came into my room to describe how things went and even took time to show my daughter and me a video of the procedure. He is very caring and puts his patients at ease. I feel fortunate I went to North Kansas City Hospital and that Dr. Starr is my cardiologist.

I was very nervous about a new, sudden cardiac diagnosis. I cried in his office. Dr. Starr was so calm and reassuring. He answered every question. He explained things so well and took the time to just talk to me. I would highly!! recommend him!
