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.

Did not like meeting with the doctor while "gowned" for xray.

August 31, 2017

Generally it was an average office visit with regards to the staff but Dr Urish seemed to have diagnosed the problem by looking at the x-rays before even discussing my symptoms.

August 31, 2017

I was admitted for almost a week and the entire 4100 floor staff was absolutely amazing to me. They went above and beyond to make sure not only I had everything I need but my mother also since we were so far from home. I will never forget this experience and their thoughtfulness and kindness.

High quality of care.

Dr. Urish was quite professional in explaining my x-rays to me saying that he saw "no red flags as far as the x-rays showed". He did not explain why I was having such pain on exerting pressure on my knee when i used my walker. I took him at his diagnosis that there was nothing to worry about.

He is excellent. He took his time to talk to me and explain the surgery; he sat and answered all my questions.

May 12, 2017

This was the third provider I saw for this problem and I am super impressed with the streamlined level of coordination of care. The entire staff seems to work together efficiently. My wait time was minimal and everyone was very attentive

Ken Urish is an outstanding Dr. and a wonderful person.

May 04, 2017

I am well satisfied with the treatment and attention given me by staff and doctor
