Dr Urquhart is very professional and meticulous just as you would expect any surgeon to be. He has taken great care of my hip injury and I would recommend him to anyone that needs hip surgery.

Dr. Urquhart replaced my hip 13 years ago and it changed my life. He is a perfectionist and it shows in his work. I was in pain 24/7 with little to no activity, and now I can do anything including water skiing and snow skiing. I’m very blessed to have him as my doctor and will not wait as long if...more

Very arrogant, he didn't do anything for my mother and he needs further his education on his people skills ?? Would not recommend

I'm sorry you had a negative experience. My office and I try very hard to give tailored care which often means non-operative measures as there is no condition that cannot be made worse by an ill advised surgery.

One of the best, in my 92 years of life. Many Thanks to him and his Staff.
