Hernia surgery made the condition worse than before. Office staff is rude. Would not take my dog to see Dr. Urban...

Dr Urban performed a successful open cholecystectomy on my 88 year old mother in law. She is an excellent surgeon, answered all questions and is very attentive to and caring of her patient. Highly recommend Dr Urban.

i would not recommend this doctor for any colon surgery. I was very disappointed in her follow up care with my post op complication. I would not recommend her to anyone looking for a doctor for any colon surgery. Her office staff is a reflection of her as well, their lack of knowledge of how to direct a patient when they are in need of help with a post op complication is very sad. Do your home work before your colon surgery find a colon and rectal doctor to do your surgery not this general surgeon.

Dr. Urban does well on surgical procedures but her after care is less than professional. I have racked up a large sum of debts from her lack of thinking outside the box. And suggesting to take out a feeding tube to someone who has a deformed stomach and is labeled inept to survive, isn't being a GOOD doctor. It's being a crappy person.

Dr. Urban is very professional and skilled! She answered all our questions pre op and post op. I had emergency gallbladder surgery on a Sunday evening the end of July 2018. I would highly recommend Dr. Urban for any general surgery needs you may have.

My post op visit was scheduled for 1:00 pm I arrived on time and 30 minutes later was told that Dr Urban was in an emergency surgery, and would be there by 2:00 pm. Shortly after 2pm I was put in an examining room and my blood pressure was taken by a nurse. She said that the Dr should be in soon. At 3:20pm I was still waiting in the examining room. I left the room the office staff had forgotten that I was in the room! I did not reschedule, and Dr never called to check on my recovery.
