What People Say About Dr. William Starr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Doesn't actually see his patients. My 5-year-old daughter split her forehead open and got 14 stitches in the ER. I wanted to follow up with a specialist to make sure (1) she would have minimal scarring and (2) she had sustained no other damage that the ER doctor missed. At our appointment with Dr. Starr, we saw only his nurse. She was nice enough, but she missed what may be nerve damage. My daughter can't fully lift her affected brow. Presumably, the doctor would have caught this even though the nurse did not. So, now it's off to find a plastic surgeon who actually bothers to see his/her patients!

Waited for half hour in waiting room, then over an hour int he exam room. He apologized. I would've rather rescheduled. My time is equally valuable. He spoke in a condescending manner, and he didn't know about my carpal tunnel syndrome so refereed me to a hand specialist. I thought he was a hand specialist. Complete waste of time.

This doctor is extremely compassionate and dedicated to his patients. He went over and beyond taking care of my father.

Although his bedside manner is a little stand offish he did an amazing job on my cyst removal. The cyst was on my eyebrow ridge and although it looked nasty the first few days he did a great job of making sure the incision was right on my hair line and the scar is practically invisible! It has not grown back since.
