this quack will try to perform unnecessary medical procedures on you to milk you and your insurance company out of money!
Lake Worth, FL |
Saw me right away and explained everything after my procedure to myself and my husband.

He may be a good doctor but he is a terrible communicator..after my colonoscopy he had a nurse asst tell me I had a cancer and he did not explain my biopsy..Go elsewhere if you want a doctor who talks to you
in Lake Worth, FL |
Recently my 22 year old son had stomach pains and was desperate to get in to see a doctor ASAP. He saw Dr. Urban and he supposedly did an endoscopy and colonoscopy on him this past monday (2/29/2016). The doctor left after the procedure and didn't talk to my son or me. He told the nurses that my son was his last patient and he didn't want to wait for him to wake up. We received no pictures of the procedures, no instructions, just a paper that isn't even legible!! DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR!!
