“Dr. Staroselsky takes time to listen to your concerns, he answers all your questions, he never rushes you. He explains if you do not understand. In fact, he explains every single detail. He is empathetic. Who wouldn’t want a fantastic doctor who is always there when you need him?! It doesn’t take “a century” to get an appointment to see him. His staff are friendly.”

– J. N.

“I am 62. I had to change family doctor for my previous one retired. On my first appointment Dr.Staroselsky looked me over, found suspicious spot on my back and removed it at the next appointment. It turned out to be melanoma in its initial phase. Never before I had my back inspected. Later, the dermatologist said that this doctor saved my life. How would you rate such doctor?! Besides, very pleasant, intelligent and cooperative.”

– P. W.

“Very knowledgable and attentive doctor with years of hospital experience. Takes his responsibilities seriously. He cares! Never rushes, but takes his own time to explain the things you need to know and understand. Highly recommended.”

– R. A.
