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 minimally invasive procedures such as nerve ablation, decompression procedures, injection therapy, and implantable devices including spinal cord stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation, and intrathecal drug delivery.

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.

  • All I'm going to say is that I'm very blessed to have a fantastic doctor like Dr. Ivan Urits. He's helped me so much since the year that I've had him as my physician, and he's great and the nurses and everybody over there are wonderful. Thank you.

  • A very personable physician, understanding and supportive

  • For me everything is fine

  • Nothing could improve Dr. Urtiz is very nice and reviews everything and goes over everything and truly explains things

  • This is a new doctor and new venue for me. I was lost. [Name] very kindly guided me to your door, [Name] was very thorough in her review of my history. Kind too.Dr. Urits made a plan not only for my immediate,presenting problem,dizziness,but also brought up and addressed my ongoing problem,chronic pain.He was very reassuring that he could help me. I left the appointment with hope and optimism.There was a glitch with a disc ( cd) that I had brought from my [Name] physicians office.The two women on the radiology desk tried hard to solve it.Laurie followed up today-went out of her way to call the [Name] office and resolve the problem. Very kind. Very professionalSo far, I feel as if I have come to a competent,caring medical provider.

  • Everything was great, my pain is very much controlled now. Thanks

  • Very positive experience

  • My telehealth visit was on October 5th not the 6th, so some of my answers may seem incorrect. (I'm a stickler for details.) My in person visits are always a pleasure. Everyone in the office is courteous and respectful. They always have the answers to my questions too. I gave a 9 because of the inaccurate date of my appointment.

  • The office was experiencing major computer outages and managed to be only a few minutes late. Dr Urits goes out of his way to accommodate his patients,

  • The doctor answered all my questions and explained everything so that I could understand it.

  • Great

  • Offered several possible treatments

  • This is by far the best Pain Management department within a 100 mile radius of [Name]

  • I think Dr. Urits. Is a very efficient, nice and always polite and kind.

  • See my chart notes.

  • Took time to listen to my concerns & offered treatment options.

  • Everything was perfect. Thanks

  • I wasn't aware I was being prescribed an controlled substance until the support staff came in and had me sign a bunch of forms. I am not going to take this medication or return to this provider as it felt very much like they were more interested in getting me on an addictive medication then in looking for a longer term remedy for my complaint. I am also find that all the requirements for patients to mask undermined when the provider does not wear a mask.

  • The doctor was not personable. Didn't really speak with me about how I am. Mostly looked at the computer. He gave me a quick explanation of what he thinks the problem is pointing quickly to a spine model. The appointment felt rushed. Explanations were left for the nurse to go over w me. When I took it upon myself to begin to tell the dr what had happend to bring me to the point of seeing him. He appeared uninterested. The appointment seemed technical and impersonal.

  • I wanted advice and to discuss my pain but was told cud only discuss issues related to the referral and nothing else for insurance was booked for surgery I never asked very disappointed was made to feel like a druggy even tho I don't use any opioids and refuse to fill rx called inTerrible !!!!

  • From the receptionist to all the staff that prepared me for my checkup, everyone was kind and explained what was going to happen.

  • This was a first visit with Dr Urits. My big problem was the wait time. I waited about 45 minutes in the waiting room, and had to ask when I was going to be seen.Then when I did get in, another 15 minutes in the room. I hope this is not the way this office is going to be since it was my first visit.

  • My after visit summary was not an accurate description of my current medical situation. I will be calling the office to see if I can have this corrected, as I am in the process of applying for disability due to my chronic pain and chemotherapy side effects which have dramatically impacted my life and affected my ability to work. By reading my after visit summary it makes it sound as if I have no problems at all. And I was never asked any of these questions.

  • The Dr was so nice and explained everything to me

  • Very pleasant visit

  • Got appointment quick

  • This provider is fantastic. He always explains in detail what we should do next in my care. I find that I can trust him and the office completely.

  • My first visit to this provider. He did spend adequate time with me to learn my medical conditions and listened to my concerns.

  • The staff a doctors are always very nice and respectful when I call or have a appointmentu00A0

  • The staff is always courteous. Dr Urits takes the time listen snd really tries to come up with solutions for my pain issues. He is always so positives.

  • Everyone involved in my visit was very courteous and helpful.

  • Everything is good.

  • Dr Urits is a very caring Dr. He takes his time listening to me and helping me with my pain. He is an amazing Dr!

  • I was very pleased with the office staff as well as with Dr. Urits. He has definitely a lot of experience and expertise and he is treating me sooner with what I need rather than postponing it 4 months down the road. The only suggestion I would make is that for telehealth does make a difference whether the telehealth is a telephone call or whether it is FaceTime. So patients should be aware of whether they're going to be on a video with with the doctor or nurse practitioner or whether it is just going to be a phone call. It*

  • Answer all my questions and explain it more than once to make sure I understood what they were talking about.

  • I had no problemness at all everything went well.

  • I am very pleased with the facility, staff, and doctor.

  • It was a great first visit. Dr. Uritz was extremely informed, compassionate and helpful.

  • Was not feeling well on a scheduled app and they went out of their way to do face time telehealth app. So was happy with that

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.
