Dr. Urish made me feel at ease about my surgeries. He explained everything so I could feel confident that I was in good hands. He would spend time talking to me and never rushed the appointments. My knee from another doctor and hospital got infected and he did a great job getting me through the spacer and revision, and everyone else involved in that was always informed of what needed done. The first hip surgery (after the knee) didn't take and he wasted no time setting up the revision, he was caring and concerned. I would highly recommend Dr. Urish.

This was my final visit after surgery. I figured I'd graduate. I saw the PA who followed up on progress following surgery. She agreed that I'd graduate, but could return if I felt I needed. She said there was 1 patient ahead of me and gave me the option to have her pass on info. to MD or wait and see myself. I thought that respectful of my time and chose to have her pass on the info.

Dr Urish and his staff provide courteous and efficient service. He is thorough, kind a very knowledgeable physician who I would recommend to anyone for treatment. His nurse, Peggy, was always available to answer my questions and concerns and always with a smile.

Dr. Urish was an absolute blessing to my health improvement and being involved in life again. Other doctors told me that my condition was only 85% chance they could help me. Dr. Urish told me with complete confidence, my operation would repair my damage completely. with his expertise and my determination, my life is finally back to normal!!

Dr. Urish is wonderful. He replaced both of my knees and I have had no problems with either. The fact that I have no pain with either knee is unbelievable and I credit that to his skills as a surgeon. I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone.
