Terrific patient experience with Dr. Urbanosky from initial consult through surgery and upon completing my rehab. Her experience, expertise, and friendliness made me feel right at home and cared for. The team at Hinsdale Orthopedics was also excellent. This is a great medical practice, I’d openly and enthusiastically endorse their group to any potential patient in the greater Chicago area.

She thoroughly explained what was wrong and all treatment options available. We chose the best one which was surgery. She did an excellent job on my thumb and I believe this attributed to my speedy recovery. Dr Urbanosky was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. I am so glad I chose her as my doctor and you will be too.

Dr. Urbanosky is an excellent doctor. She’s very knowledgeable and professional but shows her caring side. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that needs her services. She was friendly and listened to all of my concerns but didn’t try to pressure me into having surgery. I’m having surgery on my right hand as well and Dr. Urbanosky is my number choice!

Always running behind. The usual wait time is 45 mins to 2 hours behind scheduled time. It is very frustrating!

Can’t say enough good things about our experience with Dr Urbanosky! We had an emergency situation with my husband experiencing a frozen shoulder. Dr Urbanosky was so efficient, kind and understanding, making sure to go through options and hold off on doing anything that wasn’t necessary! Extremely pleased with our experience!

Dr. Leah is a fantastic person and a great and caring surgeon, having done right shoulder surgery (three years ago) and carpal tunnel and trigger finger work on my left hand yesterday (6/21/2016). She is surrounded by competent personnel and, as a result, I will have her do future surgeries anytime necessary. Great bedside manner, fantastic and funny personality and I recommend her to all those contemplating shoulder/hand surgery. If I could give her 10 stars, I wouldn't hesitant.

Dr.Urbanosky is simply the best!From day one she put me at ease and explained all my options and when it came time for my surgery her staff made me feel at home, I'm extremely squeemish and don't do well in a hospital environment but from the front desk staff to the nurses and anesthesiologist who came in and made me feel at ease and of course the good Dr. she came in before the surgery to again explain everything and making me feel so relaxed.

I would definitely recommend Dr Urbanosky. She is very professional and courteous. She always took the time to explain everything to me and answered all my questions and concerns. She made sure the Occupational Therapist had detailed guidelines so that my theraphy was successful.

I felt very comfortable with Dr. Urbanosky. She attempted to reconcile my hand and wrist issues without surgery. Unfortunately, that did not work out and I had surgery on my wrist which went very well. I no longer have the pain and other symptoms that I had before. I would go back for other extremity concerns.
