This visit, the doctor was accompanied by an intern? resident? (not sure what their status was), but I felt like the doctor talked more to them about my medical situation than directly to me. I felt like I was just listening in for a good portion of the appointment. I much prefer one on one doctor/patient visits.UofU Patient August 08, 2014
Dr. Statkus is the best. Wait...is that how you spell her name? :<)UofU Patient July 30, 2014

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.UofU Patient May 24, 2014

Dr Staskus was outstanding to review symptom and make suggestionsUofU Patient 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.UofU Patient November 25, 2013

I appreciate how Dr. Staskus and Dr. Rome were so thorough with me.

They were very nice and concerned.UofU Patient August 18, 2013

Dr Staskus is precise and thorough. LOVE HER!!!!!!!UofU Patient 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.UofU Patient May 24, 2013
