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

It was a 45-minute wait time to see Dr. Starley, but when he was conferencing with me, I never felt like he was rushed. He answered all my questions and put my concerns at ease. He made me feel like I had been his only patient for the day. So appreciative!

Dr was excellent and his staff was very good. One comment I would make was about the front desk at check in. I arrived on time to find no person at the desk and the lights off. Another Dr office across the waiting room area was open. I asked them and they said sometimes people come in late. I waited about 15 minutes until someone came in. They eventually took my name and someone called me back. The lights stayed off during this time... It was a little odd... But of course the Dr was great!

Dr. Starley did a great job for me. He immediately diagnosed my problem and took immediate action. From the ER to the nurses screening for COVID, floor nurses, CNA's and of course Dr. Starley this is the best care I've ever had. Mt. Hood hospital is now my hospital.
