I've been a patient of Mark Urman's for 8 years. He is an old-fashioned "care and treat the patient" doctor, the type you don't get anymore but wish you could. He is without peer and the best

Mark Urman was recommended by the former Chief of Cardiac Surgery at Cedars-Sinai. Several years and many visits later my wife and I are not only pleased his services but we are very appreciative of his concern and caring for our well being. Mark cares about his patients and you can feel it. Highly recommended.

I have made multiple visits to Dr. Urman and now see him every 3 or 4 weeks. I never have to wait more than a few minutes for my appointment. The staff is helpful and friendly and Dr. Urman's treatements have been highly successful in treating my heart condition. He is the best.

When I thought I had a problem, he never called me back. Also my internist called him about the same problem and he also was never called back. For the last year I saw him, he never looked at me, it was either at the computer or what part he was examining. I also was not part of his concierge service.

Dr Urman was quite dismissive once we chose not to continue expensive concierge service. Three of us in my fam had been seeing him for years. He changed. We left the practice after he complained to us about his Medicare patients .... We wish him well but would never recommend him again

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!
