About Joey Starke


Dr. Starke got his start at Southeast Hospital — he was born here! He's excited and grateful for the chance to provide patients and their families with outstanding primary and preventive care in a place that's near and dear to his heart. He can't imagine practicing medicine anywhere else and is committed to offering the people of southeast Missouri access to world-class healthcare close to home. As an osteopathic physician, Dr. Starke is skilled in providing osteopathic manipulation for patients who need it, and believes in treating the whole person: body, mind and spirit. When he's not with his patients, he enjoys spending time with his wife and children. He also enjoys reading, particularly Tom Clancy novels and books on the topic of theology. Dr. Starke and his family cheer for the St. Louis Cardinals, the St. Louis Blues and Notre Dame football. He is a member of the American Osteopathic Association, and the Missouri Association of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons.
