Patient Reviews ? Write a Review
Kind, thoughtful, professional, listens, explains, is on time.
Dr Starpoli has given me and my family care no one else could . Helped me with paying my bill and helping my family when money was tite. People who have bashed him over money can't be truth . We love him and will continue to go!
I believe that mediocre may even be an overstatement! Just as many others have described, he tries to push his procedure of choice on you and seems to be more interested in your payment than he is with his patients. Go elsewhere. There are many great GI docs in NYC.
I have been under the care of Dr. Starpoli for over ten years and have found him to be extremely competent and compassionate. He is several lightyears ahead of his peers in regard to new and innovative procedures. I happen to be a physician myself and have been thoroughly impressed by his knowledge and his approach to treating patients.
I was shocked at how shabby his office was. This doc really didn't care about me as much as he cared about his expensive procedure that he pitched. I found another doc who told me I absolutely did not this ?esophyx procedure and that I was just being misled. Stay away from Dr Starpoli!!
I understand that there's a buddy system at there whereby doctors give their buds great reviews. This has to be the case as Dr Starpoli is the worst doctor that I've ever seen in my life!
I've been going to Dr. Starpoli for many years and I have referred a lot of friends of mine to him. Dr. Starpoli was always able to target all my concerns in one visit and spend time with me as much as he can to explain the diseases to me as well as all my concerns. He always tries to be as on time as he can however I do understand that sometimes other patients have more questions too and that can take up longer time. However, I can assure you that even if he runs behind, he will spend as much time as he can with you to make sure your questions are answered. His staffs are very professional in relaying my concerns, making appointments and making sure I am comfortable while waiting for my turn. The staff always check on me and inform me when he is a little behind. It is a very busy office because he is a very good doctor. And I am very surprised of the service I get even though its a busy office. In addition, this is probably the only physicians office that I goes to who will check on my insurance coverage on my behalf as well as making sure I know how much I owe for the visit so there are no surprise bills. Dr. Starpoli also make sure I come back for my follow up visit to review the results with me and tell me when I need to come back again. He is always very informative and pleasant to work with. I never encounter a problem with him or the office.
Let me begin by saying that I have seen a few gastro docs in the NYC metro area over the past couple of years without success. Dr. Starpoli is the only one who spent the time figuring out my problem. He was just so thorough. I feel so much better now thanks to his help. His staff is excellent and really strong at communication. I have now referred friends and family members to him.
Dr. Starpoli is a first rate New York doctor. I found him after a horrible experience with NY Gastroenterology Associates (NYGA) who never even called me back after my first appointment. Dr. Starpoli's entire operation: staff, medical personnel, technique, is state of the art. His office is friendly and professional, always follows up after appointments, and keeps your progress on track: calling you to schedule appointments instead of relying on you to remember. I never waited long for my appointments, everything is run on time. I am a changed woman after working with him over the course of a few months with both procedures and behavioral changes that will forever positively impact my health. Gastro health never has a band-aid cure. It requires just as much effort from the patient as the doctor, and Dr. Starpoli led me on the path to healing. Definitely make an appointment to meet him and discuss your plan for a better GI system.
I have seen many physicians in my lifetime although none have been as incompetent as Dr Starploi. As they say, "he talks the talk", but surely doesn't deliver. He appears to think very highly of himself. Avoid this doctor as the are so many more intelligent gastroenterologists in Manhattan
He simply has to be the worst gastroenterologist in NYC
Poor bed side manners, very expensive.
We do the best that we can do. The fees are standard and all patients are informed in advance of their visits.
Dr. Starpoli is the best! I have been seeing him over the past 2 years for my Crohn's disease and acid reflux/hiatal hernia and couldn't ask for a better Gastro. Every time I tell him my symptoms he always seems to know what is wrong and gives me proper diagnosis/treatments. He is not only funny and nice but super professional. He really cares about his patients and makes sure that they get their blood work done on a regular basis as well as check ups. The negative reviews you read are NOT true. They are miserable people who like to rain on others parades. Def see Dr. Starpoli if you live in the tri-state area!
Dr. Starpoli really helped me out. Caring and professional. What a pleasure.
Dr and staff are caring and professional. A bit of a wait in office but worth it!
I have suffered from bad reflux for years and have seen several other gastroenterologists. Dr. Starpoli is the first to have correctly identified my problem and offered me treatment options that were never told to me. He is caring and understanding and gives you quality time. He does tell you what he thinks and pulls no punches. It is refreshing to have a doctor that really speaks with patients. I am amazed about a few reviews that portray him as a bad doctor. This is clearly a case of an unhappy person who themselves wrote a review more than once. I myself had the TIF EsophyX surgery and it changed my life for the better. As was in my case, insurance would not cover the procedure. Dr. Starpoli gave me the other options that would be covered by insurance, but I wanted the TIF surgery. Dr. Starpoli even discounted the cost of the procedure substantially and I appreciated that. Some persons are just unhappy, have unrealistic expectations, and become vicious when they can't get what they want. Unfortunately, many use the web to complain and spread negative opinions and less say good things. I can tell you that having been to many doctors, Dr. Starpoli stands out and deserves his well earned outstanding reputation.
His office is shabby and his skill level is very poor. Despite this, he's an extremely pompous guy.
Dr. Starpoli knows his subject and makes sure you understand everything about your sickness and also about the procedures he will be doing. I found him very thourough. I would recommend him to any friend who has stomac problems.
I love seeing Dr. Starpoli, not only is he a great New York Gastroenterologist but a great person. He was very compassionate to my situation which is always nice. He got me in and out fast and was accurate in his assessment. Thank you for my gastroenterology help.
When I was having a problem I booked an appointment with Dr. Starpoli and have been going to him ever since. Now I feel 100 times better but if I feel anything coming on again I will wast no time and book an appointment in a heart beat. I do believe he is the best Gastroenterologist in all of New York.
Thinks he's the only GI around. Cheer up dude, there's so much of life left in us. Don't try to kill with your scary words.Also try to be on time. Thought Dr.s are very punctual.
I really like the care I received. I have been visiting a Gastroenterologist for years now and I convinced this is the best doctor in the Tri State area. Dr. Starpoli educated me on allot of information I was unaware of. My Doctor Patient time can be as long as needed.I recently went through with the Endocinch Procedure. It was amazing! From the procedure I am completely off all medication for my Heartburn. Very pleased with everything.
