“I pursued a career in medicine because I enjoy continually learning and applying science to help people live actively with fewer symptoms holding them back. My patient care philosophy centers around promoting healthy and active lives by nonoperative, minimally invasive means. I also work closely with other specialists to ensure each patient gets the optimal care they need. In my free time, I can be found mountain biking, watching one of my four children play sports alongside my wife, or at our church.” – Dr. Starnes
