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.

Provider Ratings

Why aren’t there any ratings?

We do not have a rating for this provider for one of the following reasons:

  1. Provider was newly added to our survey process and has not yet received the minimum number (30) of survey returns.  Check back soon for results!
  2. If this provider’s biography page does not specify practicing at Southcoast Physicians Group or a Southcoast hospital site (Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s or Tobey Hospital), he/she is affiliated with Southcoast Health Network but not employed by Southcoast Physicians Group.  Our affiliates are not included in our survey process.
  3. If this provider’s biography page specifies practicing at Charlton Memorial, St. Luke’s or Tobey Hospital, without reference to an outpatient practice, he/she delivers care in the inpatient hospital setting only; inpatient surveys do not include questions about individual providers.

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.
