Fantastic Health Care Team
I have been seeing Dr. Starkebaum for a couple years now. She is absolutely wonderful. Not only an excellent doctor in technical terms, but her blend of professionalism and personal compassion goes way beyond my expectations. I always come away from my appointments feeling great, optimistic, invigorated. She gives me the information I need to make my own informed decisions. She works WITH me, not ON me. I just love her for that. I have not had any negative experience waiting to be seen or long periods in the waiting room. If I had though, I would view that as a very small price to pay for the best care I've received yet.

We take my stepson, who is autistic, ADHD and immune-deficient, to Dr. Graunke who also has a wonderful doctor-patient rapport. It has been especially important to us to have a doctor who is good with special-needs children, and who will listen to and consider some of the idiosyncratic nuances of my stepsons health issues. Like Dr. Starkebaum, Dr. Graunke takes extra time to listen, TRULY listen, to our concerns.
Finally, their entire staff takes a warm and compassionate approach with clientele. They are most professional and go above and beyond to be helpful, particularly in coordinating with medical care teams outside their office.
I honestly can't say enough good about this group of care practitioners.
