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 30 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.

I really like Dr. Starkey, I'm very glad he did not retire. I trust him completely, and think he's a great physician. He answers all my questions fully, and is really great about including complete office notes so I can read them in MyGeisinger.

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.
Aug 13, 2015
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.
Aug 10, 2015
dr Starkey is very professional and answers all of my questions .
Jul 30, 2015
Felt as if he knew his stuff. Love that he utilizes MyGeisinger since I live a fair distance away & have to travel to Danville.
Jul 23, 2015
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.
