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.

  • 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

  • Let the patient know ahead of time that your office does not have your medical records and they need to be sent to your office.

  • Everything was smooth from scheduling to appointment. Couldn't be more satisfied.

  • Great experience

  • Everyone was kind, helpful, and pleasant demeanor.

  • Office staff were very friendly. The facility is beautiful Dr. Urit was friendly, explained things well, and was responsive to my needs. The office person in the radiology department was very nice in downloading my MRI disc while I waited so that I did not have to return later for it.

  • Slow down and speak in layman's terms. I am always confused after appointments.

  • Dr Urits very professional excellent bedside manner took time to listen to my problems offered me a clear path to manage my pain very efficient office.

  • 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

  • This particular provider, listen. And cares. And take the time to look at all aspects of things. He's very supportive, very caring, which you don't get from any of the others.

  • Had to wait over a month before I could be seen by Dt. Urits. I was in severe pain and went to ER 3 times. Besides that, the visit went very well. Excellent!!

  • Everyone was very courteous and helpful. I was very pleased that my Prime Dr. got an appointment for me to their office. Would recommend them to any of my friends and family.

  • Dr. Urits always asks how things are going, how things are going now, how's my pain level, how we doing on my medications. Always has recommendations for different pain ... pain in my body. Always asks me any questions in regards to my health. Very happy with him.

  • I would have to say it was, if it's not broken, don't mess with it. I felt very comfortable talking with the doctor and the staff. Great group of people. Thank you.

  • There very nice, polite. They were concerned about everything that was bothering me, and they really made me feel comfortable and it was short that they're keep helping me, and I really appreciate that... And I would recommend them to anybody that's looking for some kind of help, and I look forward to seeing them again, and I thank you very much.

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

  • My experience with my Dr. Today was very please my Dr. Talk to me about my health and what to do about it. He was very friendly as well of the staff. Never made me feel uncomfortable at all. 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

  • Went in nervous for an apt. I found out it would be a small procedure, but had gotten even more nervous. Dr was understanding and pleasant. I was less nervous before the visit was finished.

  • Everything was greatu00A0

  • Yes, he was very excellent doctor and explained every single thing to me, and checked out everything. I needed to be checked out, and stuff like that. He was wonderful.

  • I've only met him once and he was very nice the only negative thing I would say is that I was hoping to go over my MRI results because there's a lot of things on there ? He addressed Spondylosis briefly but didn't mention my bulging discs or my fractured spine? I guess it's a process? My life has been put on hold because of debilitating pain so hopefully he'll get to the bottom of it!! I think I'm in good hands!!

  • Pleased with the treatment plan

  • Listening to what I had to say and understanding the approach I wanted to take.

  • everything was explained

  • this is the first time I met this provider, he under-stood my problems

  • He was friendly informative and listen

  • I waited 2 months for this appointment. The doctor was wonderful and I will be getting the help that I NEED, but I had to wait for SO long to get this appointment, while being in extreme pain! There is obviously a need for more 'pain management doctors.

  • I like Dr. Urits very much. He has addressed my concerns and had help my quality of life improve. I could not ask for a better doctor.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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.
