Great surgeon with excellent bedside manner; good communicator and all-around expert. Can't recommend too highly.


This doctor was my third opinion and I chose him to give me info on my back which I was impressed with some of the details given to me in regards to having another surgery. He made me feel very comfortable to question in detail the length of times for surgery and recovery time, also details in how the spine would not get better without the surgery. Thanks for your detailed. honesty


Very pleased with dr Starr. He followed a cautionary approach to my problems rather than rushing to do surgery


He was very kind and took his time to answer all my questions. Thank you!


Exceptionally caring and great surgeon!


Relaxed, low key, doesn’t pretend to have all the answers


I never felt rushed in my appointment. He took as much time as I needed to answer all my questions.




So far, he is a five star surgeon, but I am still recovering and only in a few months I will know if the surgery was a success.


five stars, of course.
