    Worst experience of my life. The man has an ego beyond belief. After a total knee replacement I continued to have pain. He said "I have never had a patient 12 months out of surgery still have pain". Instead of trying to figure out what was wrong he blamed me. After changing doctors my knee was scoped and found that the hardware in the tibia was loose. Dr Urrea again took no ownership by say "I doubt it, that is very rare".

    Dr. Urrea made me very uncomfortable. He was more like a district attorney trying to discredit me...putting me in a defensive mode. On my second visit he didn't even acknowledge me and his assistant saw me instead. (She was friendly and informative). I won't be going back to see him.

    I was very disappointed that my follow up appointment was with Dr Urrea, but when I arrived , I was seen by his assistant . The doctor did not even have the curtesy of even explaining why I was not seen by him personally . I make appointments to see the doctor,not his assistant .... Very unprofessional. The staff was very friendly and helpful . This was on remcon circle drive offices.

    Dr. Urrea is a World-class, 5-star orthopedic surgeon w ho has been able to keep me pedaling over the past decade+, after he took care of my meniscus tear, September, 2005. I've had other physical challenges (shoulder strain after bungee jump from the Ledge, Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand; sciatica, leg collapse) and he has always expertly diagnosed and able to make better. He is very charismatic, professional & knowledgeable about options in my treatment.

    I like the doctor the facility is horrible. The doctor wanted an injection for me then to follow up with him.. They canceled the appt. for the injection TWICE and I was tired of re scheduling the shot because then I had to reschedule my follow up appt. with Dr Urrea.

    You need a Doctor with Vast experience This Dr has Plenty. You need a Dr. With Compassion This one really does. I can say that both my complete reverse shoulder and my total Knee replacement have been incredible. Both feel as good as the original parts that God originally issued me. I recommend this Dr to everyone!
