She was very lovely, firm but compassionate. I felt comfortable with her and her staff. I trust the treatment plan that she laid out for me. She seemed to genuinely care about my health and well-being. This was my first visitwith her, but I think I have chosen a great PCP.

My wife and I both are patients of Dr. Uppala and we could not be happier. It is easy to get an appointment, the staff is friendly, and the patient portal is great. Dr. Uppala is very patient and kind andshe is an intelligent woman. I like the fact that in her office, there are signs that make patients aware that she will not prescribe narcotics. I think that it is great that she and her office have a policy to prevent drug shoppers. I have had regular blood work and seasonal flu and strep testing as well and everything was efficient and the results came back quickly. I recommend Dr. Uppala!
