I really liked Dr. Staskus! We are paying a higher insurance premium just so I can come here! So hard to find good Endo's. Wish the "U" would take standard insurances like UHC Choice Plus and other small insurance plans.

Outstanding "bed-side manner" of Dr. Staskus. Compassionate physician.

Dr Staskus was outstanding to review symptom and make suggestions

January 30, 2014

I appreciated the time she took with me. She explained my condition, went over my past years labs, and in detail explained my recovery period and what to expect. I left feeling frustarted with my condition but not the doctor. She was amazing and I didn't mind waiting the 3 months to get in to see her. I finally felt like my questions where answered after 2 years of thyroid problems.

I appreciate how Dr. Staskus and Dr. Rome were so thorough with me. I appreciate for all the time that they spent with me to find out about all my health problems and the time they spent with me advising me what to do about my health problems, especially with my thyroid hormones. They were very nice and concerned.

May 29, 2013

This visit was different in that it was a resident (I believe) that did the initial analysis before the doctor came into the room. Then most of the conversation was between the resident and doctor, not really with me.
