I always recommend Dr. Stark to everyone I know having the same issues. He has always been on point with all issues that I bring to him.

dr chris stark is excellent
Patient | November 6, 2017

The only thing that could have been better is if he would have let me watch him inject my heel. Then I probably wouldn't have "jumped" when he started.

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.
