Legacy Medical Group-General Surgery

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 one of the best surgeons I have ever been treated by. His staff and facility is top notch . If there is any negative is that it seems to hard to get my surgery done sooner than later but I still am appreciated during the pandemic to get get any thing done . I understand these services have suffered greatly and many have not been given treatment they need and that's sad .

Enjoyed meeting Dr. Starley, He explained his approach to my upcoming surgery in great detail and in a very positive manner. I am nervous about surgery and his confidence in use of robotic assist helped me feel more comfortable with the procedure needed to restore my health.
