Dr. William Starr MD has very clear "MENTAL DISORDER(S)" ... What a horrible experience ... He couldn't care less about his patients.

This doctor is extremely compassionate and dedicated to his patients. He went over and beyond taking care of my father.
in Ventura, CA |
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.
Remarkable!!!!!!! outstanding, spontaneous.
in Ventura County |
