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

This was the second time my PCP has referred me to this physician for surgical care. Both times I have been very satisfied with his professionalism, his expertise & his personable manner.

Staff very polite but not stuffy. I had called 3x before with questions and they not bothered by my calls. I love that they had a real live person interpreter. This makes visit so much more productive and less misunderstanding.

I would like to recognize Dr. Starley as well as all of the staff at the Mt. Hood short stay unit. They were all so kind and personable which really helped to ease my anxiety surrounding my procedure. I couldn't have asked for better care.

Dr. Starley went above and beyond. When I had a late night complication, he came to the emergency room to perform the procedure himself. Also, he's the best and brightest in the room. Asset to your group, keep this guy happy!

I am thoroughly impressed with Dr. Starley. Even though my medical condition is not something he can help with directly, he didn't pass me off and send me on my way without a definitive diagnoses. Instead he referred me to a doctor he trusts and promised he would stick with me until I'm healthy again. He reassured me that HE would be my doctor and help me.

I only know Doctor Starley due to an unexpected medical problem. Each time I saw him or spoke to him on the phone, he was kind and patient. I never felt as though I was taking too much time, even when I got in touch with after office hours. He explained things clearly and made sure I understood what was happening. I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know. My husband and I were both very happy with how we were treated and the care I received.

This was a consult with a surgeon about a suspected hernia. I was very comfortable with Dr. Starley, with his diagnosis, and feel very confident about him performing the surgery when appropriate.
