Extremely poor attitude if the patients parent does not comply with medical treatment, because of additional concerns that were not clear, Dr. Urrego was not willing to provide additional education, or clear up misconceptions, and he is not the patients advocate at all!

Dr. Urrego is a fantastic pulmonologist and I highly recommend him. The level of care my children have received from him is extraordinary. My children have serious breathing issues that is finally well controlled and we can now sleep soundly at night. I cannot thank him enough.
