Dr. Urrea doesn't have the best bed side manner but he is amazing. His P.A is very nice and knowledgeable. I would love to give more stars but the woman that work in his office ruin my experience. They are rude and it's horrible to try to set up follow ups. They NEVER call back. They don't apologize even after you tell them they are being rude. He needs to hire a new staff ASAP. They are the first impression and it's not good.

I have seen Dr. Urrea for my back pain and have also taken my daughter as well. Dr. Urrea was always very professional and he got rid of my back pain. I highly recommend him to any anyone who needs a back specialist, he's the best.

As a patient, your confidence & decisiveness impressed me. When my wife was diagnosed with a pinched nerve, the next step was a no brainer. Following her surgery, she is doing well. I cannot express how much it meant to both of us when you prayed with us before the surgery. I also want to commend your exceptional office staff. Christina, Jose, Jessica & Lorena are all top notch. It is a comfort it is to know that there are surgeons of your caliber, professionalism & character.

I have seen Dr Urrea and Calderon for many years. I have no complaints about the Physicians, until today. Office staff is very rude and disrespectful and stated that a pre auth for meds is to much trouble for them!! I am in disbelief and wonder if the Dr is aware of the rudeness of the staff. He's been my physician for a long time is a great Dr but the office staff? I shake my head in disbelief.
