Specialties

Dr. Paul L Urban has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

office staff

If you have a problem don't contact the office staff every time you tell them your issue they say they will call you back I have waited 4 days for someone to call sometimes never at all end up calling office and nobody has given Drs. The message hope you don't have a emergency you will be waiting a long time for a responds if any.Better off going to emergency room rather than call office...

Dr. Urban Saved My Heart!

In Year 2000, I had a "widow-maker" (LADCA) blockage with difficult stenting. Due to Dr. Urban's expertise, I'm still alive at 85! Initially, the doctor who referred him to me advised that in his opinion, Dr. Urban was the only local specialist who could help me...It's definitely time that I write this belated review of thanks to him and also his wonderful staff of care-givers....My annual checkups are a pleasure to keep!
