Dr Urbach has been my primary care physician for years. He is outstanding and I have recommended him to all my family members. Several are now his patients. He listens well, asks the right questions and is very competent. I trust his analytical ability and I appreciate him very much. I've am very pleased with all my experiences with Legacy. The MyHealth Website is a different matter though. The concept is spot on, the site organization is good and the user interface is good. However, the response time is awful. The site renders at an unbelievably slow rate. You may need to change your hosting company or invest in greater bandwidth. As it stands now, response time make the site very frustrating to use. (I've got a 25 meg web link)

Dr. Urbach is an excellent Dr for me, the only thing I thought after I left the clinic, he did not ask me about how things were going with the two interventions we came up with on my last visit. I, of course, could have told him what I wanted him to hear. His style is to let me talk about what I am concerned about. Sometimes I need a nudge, writing this makes me aware that need to take more responsibility.

I have been going to Dan Urbach for almost 22 yrs (minus 3 yrs in the middle) and have been incredibly happy with his care. He is very personable and never hesitates to give me a referral if he thinks I need something outside his expertise. I totally trust him

I recently had an appointment I had to reschedule at the last minute (literally) because I ran into a very unusual traffic snag. I would have allotted more time for travel had I known what was happening on my route. So, this was actually really awesome because Tonya who was working on the phones that day got me rescheduled for the next available opening and I was able to still come into the office and pick up replacement appointment cards (which are really important to me because I have so many doctors in my life and I have a paper system that is nearly foolproof- but, I have to keep the appointment cards updates in two different places. Tonya got me rescheduled and had the front desk watch for me so I could get the new appointment cards when I came in because I was already on campus when my time to arrive for my appointment had expired. I totally understand this policy and I'm just glad that Tonya went way way above and beyond to make sure that I was settled and had what I wanted and needed to go ahead with rescheduling the appointment. I also asked her to personally explain to Dr. Urbach what had happened, and she did. This meant the world to me because you never want your PCP to think that their time is not as important as yours- if not more. So, even when things don't run the way they are planned, things still come out great at this clinic. I can't say that for every doctor I see, but for most, thank God, it is what happens. Sincerely,

Dr. Urbach is simply top flight across the board. He obviously cares about my health, and takes the time to thoroughly explain everything I need to know at each appointment. Further, he is very knowledgeable about the underlying medical issues that are being discussed, which honestly isn't the case with all Doctors. I am grateful to have him as my primary care physician, and would recommend him to anyone, without reservation.

doctor had MA call w results to diagnostic test. MA was unable to answer my questions. she did her best, calling me back 2 times after initial call to try and address my question, but my question was not answered and Dr. Urbachs final answer (through the MA mind you) was, " he has nothing more to say", and proceeded to refer me to a specialist who I had already communicated displeasure with to Dr. Urbach. I have ended my relationship w Dr Urbach as a PCP and will be looking for a new PCP.

When signing up with my new doctor the office forgot to sign me up for the health portal and I had to do it myself. During the check-in process for my imaging test the staff was a little brusk. Other than that great visit(s), doctor & technicians.

Dr Urbach does a great job! the past 2 times I had blood drawn there the aide seemed inexperienced and couldn't draw my blood. Both time another person had to come in to draw blood. I give blood often and is never difficult. Seems like more training needed for new people. Their inability to draw blood doesn't inspire confidence.

I always have pleasant experiences when I visit this clinic where my PCP, Dr. Daniel J Urbach, is located. The team definitely works together to provide really unusually good service. I don't see this that often in ANY kind of professional office visit I have. Whether it's doctors, CPA's or even a retail experience, this is the one place I ALWAYS get the best treatment from everyone who works there. I think that this comes from the employees liking and respecting one another. It's a very harmoneous environment. Typically doctors offices are disorganized, running behind and can have employees who are short tempered. But not at this office. I have been with Dr. Urbach for years before he ever came to be part of this office here, and his office was also run the same way as this one is. So, I know he must have a large positive influence over the office, but I think it takes effort from everyone to make the place run so smoothly. I never have to worry about having an emergency, or needing to reach my doctor right away. It's a good feeling and it's not one that many people have when they talk about their doctors offices, regardless of what kind of doctors office it is. This is a cheery, upbeat and nice feeling space where I feel I am always respected and taken very well care of. And I hope this never goes away!!!

I have always had a wonderful experience when visiting with dr. Urbach he is my husband's Dr and he is the doctor that told me that I had something wrong with my heart and because of him noticing this I was able to get other test done and [details deleted to protect privacy] so pretty much don't trust any other doctors besides dr. Jhooty & Dr. Urbach dr. Urbach has a wonderful bedside manner he cares about his patients he wants them to know that he cares he listens he takes notes so that he can find out if something is wrong with you or not so I think he's probably my favorite Dr thanks for asking thanks a lot Dr.Urbach

Folks, it's 2017 and the term, "race" really needs to be updated based on current knowledge of biology and DNA. There is no such thing as race in biology, especially in a medical practice. Asking people on your intake forms about their race is not productive, and potentially insulting. Offering them a choice between "white" and Caucasian" is comical. If you must know their "race", why not just simply ask, "What is your skin color"? While Caucasian has come to mean the same thing as "white" in common parlance, the Caucasus mountains bound the Middle East on the north, so Caucasians are, to some extent, a liminal Middle Eastern population! Also, it's probably not a great idea to rush a patient into a treatment room, and immediately take their blood pressure while sitting high up on a treatment table while slouching. At least have them sit quietly for five minutes while their feet are on the floor before you take the pressure. OK, apologies for the rant. Happy Holidays!

My doctor is excellent and provides excellent personal care. All follow up has to be done by myself (ie. scheduling blood work, additional specialists). There is no help provided other than to tell me what I need to do for my follow up.

To start, Linsey, Dr. Urbach's Medical Assistant was A+. Very competent and personable. This was my first meeting with Dr. Urbach for a routine annual exam and go over my medical records. I found him to be very kind, understanding, simple to understand, non-judgmental. I got the feeling that he truly has my "best interest" in mind. He took the time to think about my care and try to get a sense of who I was. He explained things in detail in easy to understand examples. Overall, I got the impression that Dr. Urbach is positive and conservative but honest and realistic in a kind way and it made me feel hopeful and comfortable in his care. Thank you!
