Specialties

Dr. Kenneth E Stark has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Couldn't get to doctor - rude office staff

I would have liked to see the doctor but couldn't get past the rude, unorganized office personnel who accused me of arguing on the phone today when I asked what happened to the info faxed to them from my regular physician. Went through about a month of this. Doctor may be 4 stars, I don't know, but office staff is a 0.

Two Stars

I have seen Dr. Stark one time, almost 3 weeks ago. I have now called three times this week, talking with someone who said that they would notify Dr. Stark, but have never received any reply for the problem about which I was calling.

$230 Visit

I had issues with billing twice, first time office staff called 5X for insurance/payment info, saying they do not communicate among themselves. Finally got an appt after waiting THREE months on TWO separate occasions, was told I would be paying only what my insurance would allow, but the billing mgr said she did not have time to contact my insurance co, thus charged me the full cash amount of $230. Its 3 months later and I still have not received the rebate I was promised. Dr. Start was very pleasant but did not run any tests and ignored my request to review my list of concerns, history and symptoms. I was referred by two other doctors to check for chronic muscle/tendon inflammation and arthritis. Dr. Stark sent me home with a sample of Lyrica and I never heard from him/them again, they just made another appt for 3 more months of waiting and another full cash price.
