I have spent a lot of hours with Dr. Stark and his staff. I have to say, his staff worked HARD with my insurance to get me approved for further work. Dr. Stark is not there to hold your hand! He is there to work! If you have knee issues, he is a great doctor. John G. | Google Reviews


Pain free and loving it…Dr. Stark repaired both my knees over this past year due to medial meniscus tears. Well, I am back to playing baseball (centerfield) and with that said, had one of the best defensive games in three years all due to my knees being pain free. I was able to chase down and catch three balls hit in the gaps. I threw two men out on the base paths; one at third base and the other out was made at home plate. Upon making my third catch, I saved our game by not letting the go ahead run score…closing out the inning. In all the excitement of catching the ball, I yelled out…” Thank you Doctor Stark!!!!!” From the bottom of my heart, I am so thankful to you and your fine staff for all that you do.

Dr. Stark is absolutely amazing. From the first visit through surgery he was totally respectful, listened to my concerns and questions answering them very informative and in layman’s terms making sure I understood what he was saying. The surgery went great and without complications. I especially appreciated his closing technique as now a little under three weeks post op there is barely an incision line and is healing quite nicely. If you are looking for a great knee surgeon Dr. Stark is definitely one of the best in the business and I highly recommend him to anyone having orthopaedic issues with their knee. Veronica M. | Yelp


Dr. Stark is an extremely knowledgeable doctor and a skillful surgeon, and I would highly recommend him to anyone facing orthopaedic surgery. I injured my knee skiing in January 2016, complete MCL and PCL ruptures. After consulting with several doctors, I decided on Dr. Stark, and I am so glad I did.

The entire staff is wonderful, from the front office to the medical assistants to the surgical staff, and Dr. Stark was very positive and proactive in approaching my case.  I liked that he considered various options and scenarios in my care, and that he did not rush into surgery.  Allowing me to try to self-heal and do some PT prior to surgery assured me that surgery was indeed necessary, and Dr. Stark carefully weighed the surgical options before the actual operation.  I also appreciate that Dr. Stark saw that it was imperative to return me to an active lifestyle, as he seems to enjoy an active lifestyle himself.

My surgery was 7 months ago, in November 2016 – 10 months after the injury itself.  It was an intensive procedure with a long recovery, from being locked in extension for 6 weeks post-surgery, through many months of physical therapy (still ongoing), to finally being able to resume normal activities.  Although I am not back to full range of motion yet, my knee is feeling strong and stable and the prognosis is great.  Dr. Stark is positive I will get there in time (with options for intervention if necessary), and has assured me he will follow my case for the duration.

Although I enjoy fitness and leading an active lifestyle, I am not an athlete. However, I feel that Dr. Stark has treated me like one, with the same end-goal expectations he would one of his athlete patients. I appreciate this very much, as well as the positivity, confidence and encouragement he has shown along the way. Lisa K.Yelp


Great doctor that put me back on the road to recovery.  He prescribed physical therapy that fixed my knee problems without surgery. Thomas J.Yelp


Dr. Stark is a great doctor. I saw him for muscle tear injury in my calf. He takes time to listen to my concerns and explain his treatment plan. He tries to utilize patient’s own healing power to recover instead of selling unnecessary items and services.

Dr Stark is very efficient. The wait time is less than 5 min from appt time. It is much better than 30 min wait time with another doctor I saw in the same office. The face time with Dr. Stark is longer too. I was told by a receptionist on the phone that Dr. Stark only sees knee patients. Actually he is a great sport medicine doctor. The appointment is hard to make on the phone. I was on hold for 20 minutes.  Lake F.Yelp
