Ratings for Dr. David Starr
Due to Mr. Starr's incompetence my elderly parent had to undergo an emergency colonoscopy at North York General Hospital. Whilst removing a benign polyp, the 'good' doctor had cut too deep sending the patient home bleeding slowly but surely. Shame on you Mr. Starr for not following up, even after a copy of the report from the emergency colonoscopy was sent to your office. My mother's hemoglobin count was 66 and had to have a blood transfusion before going through with the horrible preparation for the second time in 8 days. So much pain and anguish.
Dr Starr did my emergency operation while I was on vacation from the UK and fell seriously. Ill, what a great surgeon. I would like to express my sincere thanks for the work he did and the care of the hospital team, just outstanding !!!Thanks Wayne & Kevin :-)
The reception staff were indeed indifferent. Dr. Starr has one of the worst bedside manners I've ever experienced. He has very little social tact. I went into surgery nervous and scared, but he clearly did not care and even admitted he couldn't care less if I was experiencing pain. He acted like I was a product on an assembly line or a specimen to be dissected ASAP.
I cannot believe it happened to me here - in Canada in 2017 !!!! This doctor refused to provide me a treatment!!! I wish i could complain about it i just don't know who... Regardless of all negative reviews i read, i decided to visit to Dr.Starr due to my exceed bleeding. First, to say his secretary is terrible is to say nothing... But i can ignore her attitude. Once you see the Doctor's attitude... He refused to proceed my procedure and advised me to go to see other surgeon without any reason...!!!! Could you believe??? Just another classic and terrible example of "Free Health System" in Canada. Shame on you Dr. David M Starr!!!! - first you are DOCTOR and after a businessman!!!! Also, his secretary is a separate story... She is such a rude and apathetic person... She has to work at some road labor work with this type of human skills
This Dr. Is in the business of surgery not caring for those who need surgery. He is only interested in the $$ for your problem not you. My posting is from 3 years of dealing with this Dr. Try to find someone else if possible. The staff are nosy and indifferent. They run the office like your at Costco.. next please your billing is complete.
