About Me:

My interest in General Surgery began when I was studying Biology in high school. The influence of a great biology teacher and the mentorship of a General Surgeon who allowed me to volunteer with him sparked an interest in human body and surgery. That interest led to a degree in Zoology then on to a career in medicine. I dedicated the next 9 years to becoming a General Surgeon. Medical school took me to Missouri and the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine. There I learned the importance of the patient and that healing is not only a science but incorporates the mind, body, and spirit. After medical school, I began my General Surgery Residency at a small community hospital in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. For the next five years, I worked to learn the skills and art of surgery from many teachers in various subspecialties. While there, I served as the Chief Resident and Chief Surgical Resident which helped me learn valuable time management and people skills. When I completed

Dr. Starley is very helpful and engaging, and I really trust him. I just wish he wouldn't refer to me as "Sweetie". I think he doesn't realize that it seems a little weird.

My visit was amazing! I came with a list of questions and got answers to them all! I was very pleased with the degree of knowledge and experience of Dr. Starely. He was personalable, knowledgeable, kind, and someone I would consider trustworthy by his approach. I would hands down tell anyone and everyone to go see him! It was a wonderful experience, he took my nerves about my condition and put me at ease, gave me hope, and helped show me I wasn't alone.

Dr. Starley was professional, friendly, and answered all my questions, even the ones not related to the medical reason I was there for. I was impressed.

After almost nine months of going to various doctors, all of them being rather dismissive of the, as I was told, minor issues that they didn't really seem to think was a problem, Greg Starley actually listened to me, understood what I was going through and that we needed to do something to help me, and best of all, he actually genuinely cared. I could not be happier with the way that appointment went and with Dr. Starley, he is a great person and an incredible asset to the team there. Thank you so very much for caring about me and being the first doctor I've seen to actually be willing to do something to help.

Doctor Starley is awesome. I wish I could have him as my primary. He is the best Doctor that I have ever seen. He saved my life and is very caring and empathetic. His assistant [name deleted to protect privacy] however does not have his caring and respectful attitude. She is a little rude and does not explain things enough.
