Dr Urban is extremely knowledgeable. He does all my cardiac Caths. I have had 4 so far heading towards #5. No fault of the docs just genetics. He is very talented. I don’t know what I am going to do if he ever retires. He is keeping me alive. His staff is not as friendly as I like but they try. Dr Urban has a very busy office and I believe they sometimes get overwhelmed.

I wasn't seen .I was told they do not honor on-line appointments .I wasn't in their system to have an appointment. they also told me that the online appointment access was supposed to be taken down. I am still waiting on a call to make an appointment. very dissatisfied. I took time out of work to follow up from a hospital visit as I was told to , I drove over an hour to get to this appointment that they would not honor. I would never recommend anyone for what I have been put through.

He is a very dedicated surgeon and Dr. He tells it like it, maybe you don't want to here it, but everyone should want to here the truth. He puts the patient ahead of everything, I trust him completely with my husband and myself. I would highly recommend him to anyone. By the way, his nurse Kelly is so personal and explains everything in layman terms that you feel like family, that she really cares about you as a person. Thank you Kelly and Dr. Urban for making us feel comfort in hard times.
