Dr. Urban was the best provider I have seen since moving to Texas. He is knowledgeable, respectful and kind. He acts like he is at least as concerned about my health and how to correct it as I am. I felt safe and heard with him and his fellow "Dr. E". She is awesome as well.Feb 12,2020

Wait time was long, I understand why that might be but still too longSep 11,2019
More in depth explanation of my condition than any other endocrinologist I have had. Spoke to me almost eye level in an more equal power position than other endocrinologists I have had who have seemed to need to be in a elevated position of power, knowing more about myself and condition that I do. I felt respected & gained more knowledge about bone loss than others had bothered to tell explain and what my bone scans indicate. His Fellow was also pleasant and respectful.Sep 11,2019
