Where I see patients

Legacy Medical Group-General Surgery

About Me:

My interest in General Surgery began when I was studying Biology in high school. The influence of a great biology teacher and the mentorship of a General Surgeon who allowed me to volunteer with him sparked an interest in human body and surgery. That interest led to a degree in Zoology then on to a career in medicine. I dedicated the next 9 years to becoming a General Surgeon. Medical school took me to Missouri and the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine. There I learned the importance of the patient and that healing is not only a science but incorporates the mind, body, and spirit. After medical school, I began my General Surgery Residency at a small community hospital in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. For the next five years, I worked to learn the skills and art of surgery from many teachers in various subspecialties. While there, I served as the Chief Resident and Chief Surgical Resident which helped me learn valuable time management and people skills. When I completed

Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

I'd have to say this by far was one of the most comfortable visits with a new doctor that I've ever had! Dr Starley was very professional and very knowledgeable in answering any of my questions, and his bedside manner was beyond comforting. He made our visit feel like we had known him for years! Probably the best part of the whole visit is we never felt rushed.

when at the hospital, I was told to go to second floor and follow the signs to short stay. The rear door of the elevator opened and I found myself at the doorway of ICU with no signs to short stay. I asked an ICU staff member who didn't know where short stay was. He asked another staff who took me around the corner from the elevator where there were some signs. There should be a sign where the elevator opens.

The doctor showed a lot of concern & care for the issues I was there to see him about. He listened very carefully to all my questions & answered them one by one. I left his office feeling very good about the problems I had & what the plan was going forward

This was the second time my PCP has referred me to this physician for surgical care. Both times I have been very satisfied with his professionalism, his expertise & his personable manner.

Staff very polite but not stuffy. I had called 3x before with questions and they not bothered by my calls. I love that they had a real live person interpreter. This makes visit so much more productive and less misunderstanding.

I would like to recognize Dr. Starley as well as all of the staff at the Mt. Hood short stay unit. They were all so kind and personable which really helped to ease my anxiety surrounding my procedure. I couldn't have asked for better care.

Dr. Starley went above and beyond. When I had a late night complication, he came to the emergency room to perform the procedure himself. Also, he's the best and brightest in the room. Asset to your group, keep this guy happy!

I am thoroughly impressed with Dr. Starley. Even though my medical condition is not something he can help with directly, he didn't pass me off and send me on my way without a definitive diagnoses. Instead he referred me to a doctor he trusts and promised he would stick with me until I'm healthy again. He reassured me that HE would be my doctor and help me.
