Dr. Urban is friendly (but husband asked otherwise) and knowledgeable. I have small issues with eyes and he dealt with that. However! Every member of my family has to spend at least 2 hours in his office, with 90 minutes sitting in the waiting room and then the treatment room. That's not...more

When I got there his waiting room was empty. I had to wait 30 minutes. Only 1 patient left during that time. Then I was put in a room where I waited 35 minutes. I saw the doctor for 3 minutes. He took 5 to 10 minute breaks between each patient. I think he should pay me for wasting my time.
