Dr Urquia takes time with you however if you are sick and need to see her I was told I could see her in 2 weeks. I get the impression Dr Urquia does not receive messages. I called with a migraine and was told Dr Urquia would call me back or call a prescription in, neither happened. If I am sick and need help the same day I had to go to a clinic While Dr Urquia is nice and she is thorough the office staff is rude and frequently does not answer the phone. I also have trouble getting my prescriptions refilled. The pharmacy states they do not receive the request and after a few phone calls I finally get my refills called in.

Extremely poor patient service

The staff is extremely rude and unprofessional (Tracy). Many times they dont answer their phones during regular office hours and when they do they're not apologetic or helpful. God forbid you should have an emergency bc the staff will not be there for you.

Unprofessional staff

My grandmother needed a prescription refilled, a simple thing. The office staff did not answer the phone and the answering machine greeting left no option for leaving a message. Drove to the office only to find out that it was closed, though there was no notice posted on the door. The answering machine greeting had indicated that they were open. Other patients also arrived only to find the office closed. Horrible and unprofessional for a doctor to be unavailable and not let her patients know.

Wonderful Doctor

Dr. Urquia is the type of Doctor who takes time to listen to what you and your family is saying. Excellent bedside manners, her staff is courteous and professional. The office in which she practices is immaculant. Wait time is moderate but remember she is taking T-I-M-E with her patients. Diagnosis right on the money.
