My 20 year old son went to see him for an xray and an orthotic. They charge you and send you to an orthotic company We should have just gone to the orthotic business first. Doctor sure didnt treat him

Very personable. Spends time and treats you as a human being, not an object! Good role model for other physicians to copy.

Dr. Starnes is by far the best of all the orthopedic doctors I have seen over the years from sports related injuries. He is more patient-centered than any doctor I have worked with. I encourage you to go see him if you have an injury that you are struggling with. He will work with you and explore every possible solution until you are up and running again.

What a great experience! My son sustained a basketball injury, and Dr. Starnes was so helpful. He spoke to my son in a manner that set my son at ease. It was apparent he was knowledgeable with sports and their related injuries. He even did the ultrasound himself in the exam room and explained as he went along. I would absolutely return to him and would quickly refer him to anyone needing assistance with an injury.

Dr Starnes was a very knowledgeable doctor. He was thorough, kind, courteous, and professional! I have a fractured fibula from a fall and Dr Starnes went beyond what most doctors would have done in treating me. I would highly recommend him!!

Dr. Starnes was so helpful explaining Zaxks x-rays and what we needed to do for Zacks healing. He encouraged Zack to take care of his ankle, but also to continue his sports. We were very much satisfied. Drove an hour and 15 minutes to get there, but the staff and Dr. Starnes made it well worth it! Thanks Again!
