I have to concur with the reviews here. I have been a patient for 20years and have referred Dr. Urquhart to family and friends without reservation. The receptionist does not have your life in her hands afterall, and must in the end take care of patient needs because she has been there forever. Dr. Urquhart is indeed "the best of the best". She is no- nonsense, patient whole health centered, never seems rushed or dismissive. Highly recommend.

Dr. Urquhart herself the best of the best, well worth dealing with her INCREDIBLY unprofessional receptionist and awful wait times to see her. She explains things throughly and goes out of her way to listen to her patients. You would never guess that based on her receptionist who seems constantly in a bad mood, and terribly inconvenienced whenever she has to do her job.

Dr Urquhart is thorough and keeps the patient very well informed. She is someone who inspired trust through her display of up to date knowledge and shill. I have every reason to admire and respect her.

Absolutely horrid front desk staff. They bad mouth patients as other patients are sitting there. The wait in the waiting room is at least an hour, with only 2 people in the office. While the staff is constantly busy eating and chatting on the phone. When asked how long the wait will be, you receive a rude "I don't know". When calling to make an appointment and letting front desk know of which times you have available, they say "I don't care, just schedule a time". The MEANING of UNPROFESSIONAL!

The first visit, I waited two hours to be seen. On the second visit, I was scheduled for a stress test. I waited one hour in the waiting room and then another 20 minutes in the exam room. When I complained, they told me the wait would be AT LEAST another 30-45 minutes. I left and will not go back. Total disrespect for the my time.
