About Me:

My interest in General Surgery began while 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 the human body and surgery. That interest led to a degree in Zoology and 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.

Dr. Starley was very helpful, answering questions and showing me the ct scan results, explaining what I was looking at. He had a great manner with humor and I left feeling relieved rather than fearful. It was a very good visit.

One problem. Need to send paperwork to doctors office. They only have a fax number no email address. I have no access to fax machine. Need to get in the 21 Century, and use email Correspondence.

I have only seen Dr Starley once for an initial visit. His professionalism, attitude and attention was excellent. However, it was a surgical consult and, the real test of a good or bad experience, will be the actual surgery. That being said, I left this first meeting, feeling optimistic about Dr Starley's efficacy of carrying out this surgical procedure.

I really appreciate Dr. Starley and his team taking my concerns seriously and getting me into surgery so quickly. He was kind, compassionate, and very professional. I hope I don't ever have to have another surgery, but if I do and it falls under Dr. Starley's purview, I will definitely request him.
