Ratings for Dr. Philippe Starosta
The absolute worst doctor I've ever encountered. The man has no care for patients....i felt rushed, I felt unheard and overall just plain insulted. Do not see this doctor 100% it truly amazes me he is able to continue with his practice. His staff is terrible as well; never have I experienced such incompetence in a clinic before from both the doctors and admin staff. This guy and his his location is a joke.
Dr. Starosta does not care about patients. He is all about making money and will always be the first to talk about charging for notes or blood tests. All the other doctors are reasonable about this. One time I sprained my ankle and it may have been broken. He refused to give me a sick note for even one day and told me to get crutches. Meanwhile it was winter outside with freezing rain and my work only has stairs. Lack of compassion. Lack of care. Truly rude. He has not given me my blood test results despite requesting multiple times. He is unreasonable in every single way possible. I always go to other doctors at the clinic and whenever I find he’s doing the walk-in I refuse to go in. The other doctors are amazing. Don’t go to Dr. Starosta if you care about your health and want your doctor to be invested in your health as well.
We are a family of five and have been going to Dr. Starosta for 12 years. I have read some of the previous reviews and have to say that none of the negative's mentioned, I have experienced. When my children were born...all premies, I called and asked him to take on the care of my babies as I completely trusted him with their well being. To this day is has always gone above and beyond for us.
Completely dismissive to my needs. I tell him where I'm experiencing issues, he disregards it as being ridiculous. Very reluctant to give out requisitions for something as simple as blood work, as he feels it is useless until you hit the age of 40. I waited 2yrs for a physical, and barely checked anything; a quick flash of a light in the mouth and the use of a stethoscope checking my breathing....that's it. I tell him a concern I've been having with a particular form of treatment and ask for an alternative? He just gives me more as if to say shut up, you're not doing it properly......he was never this way when I first met him in the mid 90's....his passion for the practice as well as his well-being overall seems to have become lost through the years....avoid this doctor, you're better off diagnosing yourself through Google instead of wasting your time...
He is not a compassionate Doctor. Would not give me a sick note after I suffered serious injuries to my leg which could have been broken. He told me he does not give sick notes for transportation issues and if I had a challenging time going to work it was not his place to give me time off. Disrespectful, rude, and does not care about patients. Cancels my physical each year because he is over booked and then the receptionist calls me to book me in a YEAR later. It has happened 3 times. Go to Doctor Connelly. He cares about his patients.
I have been seeing Dr. Starosta since he first started practicing in Kanata and he is simply the best and kindest doctor anyone could hope for. He actually listens and looks at you during conversations, not at the chart. Only complaint - not always easy to get a timely appointment with him. Other doctors are always available for you but not always the one you want. The other doctors at the Clinic are also very good but patients usually want their own doctor when they are sick. I consider myself extremely lucky to have him as my physician.
