I think the office was one of the best I've ever visited. The service is excellent. (INAUIDBLE) wait was nothing and all in all I would very highly recommend Dr. Urban and his staff. I have nothing else to say. Thank you.

Yes, what I scheduled my appointment. I was supposed to get an email or a confirmation our phone call confirming it because I set it up two weeks in advance, and I went to the other location on 36th or 25th and 370. I did not know you guys change locations. So no one told me that there was no clarification. There was no nothing. So, when I was driving in my car, I set up an appointment and I never really more about two weeks after that. I figure that most offices give you a follow up call before that confirm. Thank you.
