Love Dr. Stark he is a wonderful Dr. great bed side manner explains everything you need to know and spends quality time to make sure you understand everything.
Patient | April 4, 2017

Dr. Stark always spends any ample time with me & actually understands what to do & want. He doesn't solve problems with "don't run", which other providers tend to do. I guess that's easy to say & I appreciate him.

Dr. Stark is awesome.
Patient | March 14, 2017

Dr.Stark has. always been right with his diagnosis leading up to surgery. I trust him and always feel better after seeing him. I trust him and have always healed completely from any surgery. I would not see any other Doctor in orthopedics unless he referred me to a doctor.
Patient | February 19, 2017

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.
