About Ivan Urits

Raised in New York and New Jersey, Dr. Urits attended Boston College before earning his medical degree at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. After returning to the Boston Area, Dr. Urits completed both his residency in anesthesia and fellowship in interventional pain medicine through Harvard Medical School at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He has clinical interests in non-surgical minimally invasive procedures which treat low back pain, neck pain, knee pain, and shoulder pain. 

His philosophy of care is to recognize the patient as a whole, rather than just one diagnosis or injury. Dr. Urits acknowledges that pain is a whole-body experience and is concerned about his patients’ ability to function as well as their quality of life. He was inspired to become a physician as it allows him to form lasting relationships with his patients and empower them by helping them manage their pain and regain their quality of life.

Dr. Urits believes Southcoast Health is special due to a multidisciplinary approach by specialists that work together to listen to, evaluate, and treat patients. In doing this, they are passionate about practicing medicine that puts the patients first while constantly learning and using cutting-edge techniques to provide the best patient care possible.

Outside of work Dr. Urits works closely with medical students, residents, and clinical fellows on written projects and publications. He finds this extremely rewarding as it allows him to form close relationships with these students, provide mentorship, and often help them achieve their own medical goals. In his down time, Dr. Urits likes to focus on living an active lifestyle. Some of his hobbies include hiking and fishing.

Dr. Urits was very helpful with my plan of action. [Name] was so kind as to schedule an MRI for me & wait patiently for someone to answer the phone when she called Shieldsu00A0MRI & she also scheduled my follow-up with Dr. Urits.

  • The entire experience at this office was a pleasure. Everyone was courteous, caring and invested. I was extremely pleased with the time that was spent with me and the manner in which I was treated.

  • answer all of my questions explain what our 1st steeps were going to be

  • I was satisfied with everything I experience today with the doctor's office and staff.

  • All the nurses and staff were great except for my appointment with the doctor. I have dealt with a lot of pain for years and didn't know there was even a specific doctor I could go to for such a thing until my neurologist referred me. I waited three months to get in and was excited to get some answers. The nurse asked me questions for the computer before the Dr came in. The Dr introduced himself. We spoke a few brief sentences. He asked where the pain was and said it sounded like a pinched nerve. Going to have a mri done and probably an epidural after. We didn't speak of any history, cause, issues, concerns etc. I went to the waiting room to set up a mri and while I was waiting my email came for my portal Dr visit. It said I had a new medication sent. We never spoke of any medicine in the visit. When he came out from another patient visit I asked him about the medication and he said oh I thought we went over that. I felt very disappointed from the impersonal 3 minute appointment. I have had Southcoast Doctors since I was a kid- alot of great people. This one not a good experience

  • Dr. Uris didn't listen to me. He asked questions that I had just explained. He provided no help to me.

  • You have done everything well no complaints

  • The visit was fine. There are a couple of errors in the "notes" that I phoned the office about, but corrections have not yet been made. In the notes Dr. Urits referred to me as "Bonnie". But more important is that in the notes he described my back pain as being on the left side. The pain is on my right side of my back. I amonly concerned about this so that getting insurance approval won't be a problem.

  • all set

  • It took seven weeks to get an appointment.

  • You always listened to what we had to say.

  • Dr. Urits is very on top of his game and knows exactly how to treat patients.

  • Dr. Uritz should learn about the role marijuana could play in pain management

  • Now I feel there is an understanding of goals and a plan on how to best achieve them in a timely fashion.

  • I'm happy with Dr. Urits every time I go, or even (INAUDIBLE) tele-health. He goes over everything with me and I'm just very pleased with this office.

  • Amazing stuff and doctor

  • I just love Dr Uritz! He helps me so much!

  • They were just great

  • My doctor was willing and able to talk with me about new medical need, I had leading up to this appointment and he helped me to work on solution to my health needs.

Wonderful Appt. Could have been better if I was not feeling so well. Great Job to the My Dr. Units and the Nurses staff.

  • The doctor look over my records and formulate, a plan that we could I could easily accept.

  • When I went to visit, he has several questions anyone, over a few different things with me about my overall care, but when I went over the after visit summary, and I read upon what he did say, he didn't go over those responses with me in the office so I'm very, I'm pleased with what he had to say in the notes so I'm not very happy with what he had to say. .

  • Everything was very professional

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
