Beaufort, SC |
We have nothing but good things to say about Dr Uretzky and his practice. 3 children with 3 surgeries. Great bedside manner, explains things in simple terms.
Peoria, IL |
I have a hearing loss, and need hearing aids. He spent time explaining the problem. He also said he wouldn't sell me a pair unless I really would wear them, because as he said "I won't take your money if you're going to let them sit in a drawer. It would be a total waste." Talk about an honorable person. He definitely is my doctor!
Springfield, IL |
Don't go to him, he's arrogant, he has bad medical ethics.
