There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 40 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Will be difficult to see Dr Starkey go into retirement full time. He is an excellent caring provider.

Wish more doctors were like him. Explained my diagnosis to an extent I was comfortable with and explained all of the ins and outs of the medication I would be on.

being a pharmacist, really didn't need any explainations on the medications. Dr. Starkey was excellent in his information and was able to schedule an appointment referral with podiatry which I has asked him about.

Felt as if he knew his stuff. Love that he utilizes MyGeisinger since I live a fair distance away & have to travel to Danville.

My visit with Dr. Starkey was wonderful. He explained and reviewed things that a former physician really never did with me.
Jul 21, 2015
Dr. Starkey was fantastic. He was not informed that the results of my tests were not shared with me. When I informed him of that, he stopped and just revisited all the tests and explained the results with very clear detail. He was also very compassionate about the situation and simply just wonderful. I felt very reassured to be in this delicate situation and him as part of the team to treat my issues.

Meds were changed - not enough information about new script - unsure on dose - contacted *Dr. Starkey's office - he was not in - no information available.
May 4, 2015
I was given the impression I didn't even need to be there.

You really have to dig to get any information from him. He does not volunteer anything about my condition. Usually I see him at the Susquehanna University Clinic in Selinsgrove but occasionally I see him in Danville and he can never remember that he sees me at Selinsgrove. And he forgot to give me my prescription, I had to go back and get it.

Were not informed when NEW research came out about the danger of the prescribed drug.

I was the first appt of the day, nurse at 7:45. I arrived at 7:40. There was no one in reception area. I wandered around until the receptionist saw me. She was nowhere near the area. I was called to see the nurse at 8:05. She was very good. When she left, it took 10 minutes for the doctor to appear. He spent all of 10 minutes with me. Most of the time he was typing. When I asked him about the gov't warning against testosterone treatments, his reply was that we had talked about that last year. He told me to come back in one year for follow-up. I don't know why; he did only a cursory exam, listening to my heart and breathing. He told me he was handing me off to another doctor, because he was only going to be working part-time. Now I understand the brevity of the visit.
