I have been an orthopaedic patient of Dr. Stark for many years and plan to schedule him for my knee replacements in the near future and also shoulder repair. This physician is very, very competent and I trust his judgment and medical expertise. He takes the time to explain all procedures and seems genuinely interested in patient well-being.

I had rotator cuff surgery with Dr. Stark he is very good and I have seen him for my 1st post-op sx visits. After that he was running behind and his PA was the person I saw. He was very friendly, thorough and that was fine he explained what I needed and the experience with him was great.
