Patient Comments (6)
in San Antonio, TX |
The only complaint was the wait time to be seen. But, being that I made it towards the end of the day I had no other pressing appointments
in San Antonio, TX |
As of today my wife has had cataracts removed from both her eyes. While Dr. Starck delivers superior results, his office is very insensitive and uncaring of patients time when it comes to scheduling surgery times. As an example today my wife was asked to be in the hospital at 9:45 am for surgery but this was the case for another 15 patients. We sat in the waiting room and waited and waited and we finally got out of the 20 minute procedure at 3:00 pm. There is no regard for the patient.
in Kerrville, TX |
My wife had the surgery about 6 months ago. She was instructed to not eat or drink, starting from the night before the operation, which she did. The operation was not performed until about 5 pm, 24 hours later with no food or drink. Dr. Starcks staff stated that they had no control over the hospital, implying that it was not their problem. I observed a haughty uncaring attitude on many occasions when we went in for the various checkups. My wife is more forgiving, but this is my review.
Houston, TX |
Doctor is good, service is terrible. Staff meetings take priority over patient appointments. Always have to wait at least 45 min before I get called. Confirmed appointment, here on time only to find that they have a staff meeting that lasts at least 39 min after my scheduled appointment.

I could have started forest fires with my glasses I was so nearsighted. I have a scleral buckle on my left eye. I had a cataract. Yet, I was reluctant to have surgery with Dr. Starck as I figured I was a lost cause and I was afraid that even with this lousy vision, one little mistake could make it worse. But I did it. LIFE CHANGING EVENT. So far, I'm seeing 20/20! I have white walls instead of beige! The man is a miracle worker. And everyone who works there is very skilled and NICE!

Open honest discussion prior to surgery. Great vision 1 day after operations. One eye has a fixed lens and the other has a multi-focal lens. Now been 2 years since surgery and my eye sight is great. Without hesitation recommend Dr. Starck.
