Dr. Urman is nice and knowledgable, however, his staff is awful. I have never had such rude customer/patient services over the phone. They laugh at you when you express a concern and won't help you with insurance issues. They claim they don't have the time to call health insurance providers when they have a problem and expect you to call them, when the insurance company explicitly says they need to talk to the Dr.'s office about a claim. Meanwhile, every time I've been there, the staff just sits there and gossips. I have been to tens of doctors and specialists in my time and none of them have ever had a problem calling up an insurance company. That's why insurance companies have special provider services numbers, because they expect that a doctor's office will have to call at some point. The staff is rude and I've never dealt with anyone like this before in a doctor's office setting. I tell them my name and they would reply back to me with a lot of attitude saying, "What?!" I'm sorry my name is ethnic and isn't John or James. It unfortunate that a good doctor has awful staff. I finally decided that good medical treatment wasn't worth the awful treatment from the staff.

Very upset thinking this Dr. Urman was going to help me from my 1st visit. He prescribe a medication that cost $500 which had no effect on me when I told him Elocon has always worked for my chronic eczema and is 10x more affordable, but he insisted I take something stronger "Clobetasol Propionate" which was prescribed in an oinment. Ointments don't work for me & when I called his office for help because of the pain and discoloration it caused in my skin, he suggested for me to stay on it another week knowing that I'm pregnant ! What a waste of my time & money !
