“It’s so special to be a part of such wonderful times in my patients’ lives when I delivered their babies. I’ve been blessed to have a career where my patients and I have grown up together. I took care of so many of them as teenagers and young women, then I helped them as they had growing families. Now we share stories about their grandchildren. I always talk with them at length and listen to their health concerns and needs. It’s amazing how involved we can be in our patients’ lives and health.”

Dr. Urquhart has been married to the former Marietta Murray of Mobile since 1975. They have two daughters. He is a member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Besides spending time with his family, Dr. Urquhart enjoys golf, fishing and traveling.

    Dr. Urquhart is amazing! He is the definition of compassionate and caring. He has always been so thorough and honest with me and my three sisters, whom have all been very happy patients for over 25 years. I cannot say enough how thankful I am to have him to help with all my healthcare needs. I would highly recommend Dr. Urquhart and Bay Area Physicians for Women and their staff.”

    As a long-time patient of Dr. Urquhart, it’s nice to reflect on not only the comfort I have with him and his staff but the confidence that I have in him, his experience and his knowledge. As a wife of a physician, it’s important to me to know that he is thought of so highly by his physician peers.  Even when I receive news that is less than ideal, I know Dr. Urquhart has a plan in place and a protocol ready to begin to ensure we are doing everything possible to stabilize and strengthen my current and future health.  It’s a wonderful feeling, knowing I am in capable and competent hands.”
