I came in for the appointment because I broke out in a rash over my torso, legs and arms. Neither the nurse or doctor asked to see the rash at all. The doctor asked me to describe it. I told her I thought it would be better for her to actually look at it. I lifted the front of my shirt to show her the area on my abdomen. It seems really strange that any doctor would try to diagnose something like that without actually seeing it. It's not the first time I have experienced this issue with this provider. I have very little confidence that I will get a correct diagnosis from her.

Dr. Starr and her team are one of the most caring, considerate and personable medical teams I have encountered. I am so pleased whenever I have to see them - they are professional but show concern for our/my well being. Their follow up is impeccable.

Dr. Starr is my doctor because she takes time to understand how I'm doing in my whole life. She considers all aspects of my life and how they are connected when she gives me treatment options. Dr. Starr makes me feel respected and viewed as a whole person, not just as a symptom or diagnosis. I frequently recommend her to people I know who are looking for a good physician.

in the 3 years I've been seeing DR. Starr I have been very unsatisfied.[...] This last appt was the first time I left feeling much more positive about DR Starr. She wasn't rushed, I felt like she read my chart a bit before I came in. [...]

I love how included I feel in my health care and making decisions that best works for me but still holds me responsible for the choices I make.

I would never recommend dr. Starr. I've only had 2 appointments with her, and both were a nightmare. She is extremely condescending and rude. I've never delt with a provider like her in my life, and plan on changing doctors as soon as possible.

In 47 years, I have never had a doctor that made me feel like part of the team in my own healthcare. She lets me share my thoughts and opinions and we come up with a plan that works for me and what she thinks is best. I have never had such confidence or respect for a doctor. I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Starr.
