Very good experience with the doctor. Listened to my concerns. Gave his opinion and why. Spoke in terms I could understand. very clear communications. He gave me confidence in his abilities and knowledge.

I have nothing but the utmost confidence in Dr. Upender. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any friends or family members.

Dr. Upender is very good.
Patient | July 20, 2018

Dr. Upender is a very thorough physician and makes sure to cover all the concerns I had. He would point me in the right direction of care for other areas that were not his specialty (e.g. contacting a dentist for a new mouthpiece for OSA). I asked about weight loss and changing some antidepressant medications around due to this side effect and he had a very good recommendation on an alternative regimen. He is also a very humble man and always asked me about making my way through pharmacy school and how I was doing. He is the main reason I still travel 4-5 hrs to go to his appointments because he is THAT GOOD at what he does!
