Urban Allure, in downtown San Francisco, was founded by licensed physician, Joseph Franks, in 2005. He and his staff share a similar passion; give exceptional care to every client who walks through the door, calls on the phone or inquiries about services in an email. Along with specially trained Registered Nurses, Dr. Franks believes his team will undoubtedly provide each and every client with the professional and compassionate service they deserve. Although we may seem similar to other spas providing like services, you'll want to come in for yourself to see the difference in customer service, atmosphere and quality of care at Urban Allure...we're sure you'll come back again and again.
This place is amazing! Erin is the best- they are thorough, professional and they never talk you into anything you don't need. The staff has tried most of the treatments and can help guide you to treatments that are customized for your needs.
Thanks for the review and five stars and kind words!
We appreciate your business and aim to continue providing you with exceptional service!
See you soon :)

I had my laser hair removal procedure and felt Erin had the machine at the perfect setting and always checked to make sure I was comfortable. Erin was professional, courteous and friendly through my whole visit.
I always enjoy coming to their office. I'm greeted like an old friend, and they are very professional with whatever services we are doing. They offer great discounts and package deals, as well as knowledge about procedures I might like to try in the future. I have tried many dermatologists, and they are hands down, my favorite!
I have loved my visits with Erin. She's super kind, compassionate, and smart. I always look forward to my visits, which is a funny thing because laser hair removal is no joke. But when I imagine a world with no razors and ingrown hairs then I know it's totally worth it.
Erin was very knowledgable and kind. I have PCOS and had a bad experience with laser years ago and wrote it off as never a possibility again. However, after speaking with Erin I have renewed hope. She took the time to explain the science behind laser, the pros and cons for people with or without PCOS and offered to do a test spot to see how my skin would react before doing a full face treatment. The facility was clean and the people were great. Definitely will be going back.
The staff is knowledgeable, very helpful, and enjoyable to talk to. The work is done very professionally at a great location and great price. I have done both Botox and laser hair removal; I recommend both.
Personable service with many smiles. I have been having laser hair removal for years all at Urban Allure. Once I tried a competitor and had such a mediocre experience, I will never leave them now. 5 stars for sure!!!!!
I decided to switch dentists after 18 years because of a problem tooth and the attention to care I didn't feel I was getting with my previous dentist. Dr. Urick (along with a few others) was recommended to me by my endodontist's office and after doing some research online, I chose Dr. Urick. When I contacted his office to see if Dr. Urick was taking new patients and to explain my situation, I was impressed immediately with how well his office is run. My first evaluation with Dr. Urick went well--the office is immaculate, the staff friendly and efficient, and Dr. Urick is obviously very knowledgeable and professional. He referred me to an oral surgeon he works with, explained in detail what to expect, and turned me over to his office manager who reviewed with me what out of pocket costs I could expect and the timing. Dr. Urick is not an "in network" dentist with my insurance provider but it's understandable that someone with his skills and experience doesn't need an insurance company setting his billing rates. With my insurance, it will be slightly more for my out of pocket costs but I feel like the level of care is well worth it. It's also a bonus that his office is a block from where I work. So far I'm very happy with my choice.
What an amazing experience! I had a 38 year old gold crown replaced - in one visit. The entire experience was totally painless and everyone was most accomodating. I got to watch Dr. Sood design my crown on Cerec and then see the crown made, right in the office! Over the years I have had much dental work done here at CitiDent, to include an implant and a bridge. The work has been exceptional, the staff very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend CitiDent.
