It is my very good fortune that Dr. Starr has been my internist for something like 35 years now. He is an outstanding Doctor. His medical knowledge and interest in the care of his patients is unmatched. His referrals to several other specialists for treatment at Northwestern have also been excellent. Nothing more I could ask for.
