I'd been going to him for over 10 years. Then when my internist found what might be a problem, he never called him back. That also happened to another patient of his.

I highly recommend Dr. Urman to those seeking a coronary care physician. I was diagnosed with a mitral valve prolapse and referred to Dr. Urman from my primary care physician. Dr. Urman provided exemplary care over many years. In the Spring of 2018, my condition had worsened and he recommended a surgical repair. He managed my condition, timed the surgery at an age where I could handle it, and I feel great today. He communicates, he cares, he takes time to explain. Fantastic staff also!
