"In direct patient care Dr. Urban quietly listens. My first impressions (2 visits) left me with the impression that he cares about his patients. He gave quiet definitive encouragement re: feeling better with treatment. This balm of hope is so important to the psyche and soul of everyone. It is difficult for most clinicians to dare begin looking outside the box re: symptom etiologies and treatments. So, I applaud him for taking on this task. It can take courage to admit "I don't know", and he voices this with humility. Let me also give a shout out to the team he has put together. Thus far, they seem to work in concert."

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
