Unhappy 3/6/2015

The dr is old school and nice enough. But, god forbid you have to change your appointment. I had to change my appt twice with plenty of notice. Spoke to two different people. Both confirmed it was changed. When I arrived for the appt they had nothing in the system except the original appt. the receptionist tried to tell me she told me I couldn't change the appt in the first place. Don't treat me like an idiot because you messed up. I took off work. I am definitely not happy. more

Love him!!!! 4/13/2011

Heis awesome!! He is busy, but he always has time to answer questions. He saw us while I was still pregnant & answered so many questions. If you talk to him, he will discuss alternative treatments. Unfortunately, we had to move from New Mexico. I CANNOT find a doctor as good as him in California. I called one morning before office hours (just before) & he told me to come on in & he would let the staff know to get me in immediately. He was right, nothing at all to worry about--but he made me feel better. As an older first time mom, he put me at ease time after time. I MISS HIM!! more

Dont hate on a busy man! 10/20/2010

I was seen by Dr. Upleggar when i was young, now i take my 14 month old to him. Have since birth. He is a great doctor, hence the reason his schedule is so hectic and chaotic! I wait happily every time. My son and i wait outside, all you have to do is ask the nurse to come and call you when it is your turn. You dont HAVE to wait in the waiting room. I am completely satisfied with the care his office provides us, oh and the other "stranger" is the other Dr. in the office, who is also an amazing pediatrician. By the way CONGRATS ON GETTING MARRIED!!! Hope this is helpful to all those considering Dr. Upleggar! Thanks for reading! more

We love Dr Upplegger! 6/3/2010

I took my 3 month old baby to Dr Upplegger back in 1992. He came recommended by a close friend, and I couldn't be happier about that decision. He has been the best doctor in all that he does. He has been our family pediatrician for 3 more children and now that 3 month old baby is 18 years old! I recommend Dr Upp to everyone who asks me, and over the years, I've found that many more people I know also take their kids to him and we didn't even know! He's an excellent doctor, he knows our children well and he truly cares. It's always been easy to get an appointment, even for same day issues...The staff is always very very friendly and helpful, and I will continue to recommend him to anyone who asks. more

great doctor 1/5/2010

i have been going to dr upplegger since i was about seven. i am now 17 and i think he is a great doctor. the staff is very kind and helpful and i've never had a problem with the wait. he's quick with things and overall he's just a great doctor. more

response: not the choice for me or my child 12/2/2009

In response to above, I could not disagree more. Dr. Upplegger has been the best doctor for our newborn son. Our hospital nurse called his office for us late in the evening and the next morning he came over to look at the baby and perform his own circumcision--all before his regular office hours. The "look over" as was described above was also done which is routine. Either he or the staff pediatrician would look over the infant and then usually give the go ahead to discharge. May seem silly but is normal procedure and I would expect a charge, probably the same as when an adult goes to urgent care and the Dr listens to your lungs and says you have a cold. Then charges you for that comment. We had a follow up as well and found the staff to be kind and courteous. We too were moved to another room immediately and did not have to wait on some gross couch. The office is actually fairly nice--perhaps nineties decor but nice. It was cold but you cant please everyone. I would HIGHLY recommend the Dr as in our visit he sat with us allowing my husband and I to ask many questions about our new little guy. Unlike other Doctors, he was not rushing us but kept asking if we had any other questions or concerns and each time he had well thought answers and did not make us feel stupid for our questions. I am not sure why the above experience happened but we are sure glad our friends with 4 children and longtime patients of Dr Upplegger, recommended him to us. more

Excellent! Always available. 8/24/2009

Dr. Upplegger has taken fabulous care of our 6 year old daughter since birth. He is available, attentive, and always very professional. He is also no-nonsense in his diagnosis and will let you know in no uncertain terms which of your concerns are valid and which are just new-parent jitters. When our daughter was born, my wife and I were initially turned off by his matter of fact style of doing things, but we quickly realized that his years of experience gave him an insight and manner with kids that we could not possibly comprehend. I still remember him visiting us in the hospital, calming us down, and scooping up our daughter like a sack of potatoes to show us how to burp her. We thought he was going to break her back the way he was handling her, but darned if she did'nt burp 5 seconds later and give a huge, releived smile (we had been at it for an hour and were being far too gentle to get her to respond to our soft patting). Years later, I watched him distract my daughter and administer 6 shots before she even realized he had started. He is as old school as they come in his approach to medicine, but keeps current on all the latest research while having the bedside manner and responsiveness of a trusted old country doctor. His entire office is well run and very professional. Due to some complications at birth, we have had to make more use than the average consumer of his services, and have been impressed at every visit. He always knew when to refer our daughter on to a specialist, and when to send us home with a bottle of medicine for a quick-easy treatment. His thorough (but never excessive) approach to diagnosis will leave no stone unturned and will allow you to sleep easy regarding your childs health status. more

not the choice for me or my child 7/30/2009

when my child was born he came in to the hospital and introduced himself and just asked to look at the child, i obliged, she didn't leave the room he just gave her a once overand dint even let me know there was a charge.(which i was latter billed $140 for) Seriously why would i pay some Dr. to look at my kid when she is in a hospita??l!!! THEN when i took my THREE DAY OLD BABY to the office we were not put in a separate room (as is normal) away from the "sick" people as a newborn has ZERO immune system, but made to wait in the hot waiting, that had a couch that was disgusting, in room with people coughing all over for 45 mins. My wife was almost in tears. When i make a appt for Dr. Upplegger i expect to see him not some random person which is exactly what happened, and when i called to speak TO HIM to express my concern i got a call from staff, not him and he couldnt be reached. So other than him wanting my money he could care less and thats has been proven time and time again.COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE i changed that day. Then in a follow up to express my displeasure, i was asked if my kid was o.k. and when i said she is fine i was told that this converstion is over, and hung up on!!! DONT SEE THIS DR., NOT EVEN ONCE OR YOU WILL REGRET IT. more

Great doc but long wait 6/25/2009

Dr Upplegger is a good doctor who has always done the right thing for our kids. However we usually wait about an hour or more to see him, which is no fun when you have a sick baby or toddler. more

Would recommend Dr. Upplegger to all 6/2/2009

I have 7 children ranging in age from 26 to 6. I have seem my share of pediatricians and have to rate Dr. Upplegger as at the top of the list. I cannot say enough good things about him. I actually know young adults who now have children of their own and are taking their own chldren to Upplegger. He's one in a million!! more

Changed Docs. 10/7/2008

I had been taking my son to see Dr. Upplegger for over a year and I was extemely disappointed.I would make appts. and would have to wait 2 hours until I was seen!This wasnt too big of a deal when I wasnt working,but when I went back to work it became VERY irritating.My son had ear infections left and right and was never diagnosed properly.My son came very close to getting Pneumonia and that was the last straw for me.I now take both my son and daughter to Dr. Luis de la Torre,who is GREAT!I've never waited! more

Changing doctors now . . . 10/2/2008

I only 3 stars instead of 2 because of the wonderful office staff. After coming highly recommended, I found Dr. Upplegger to be very disappointing. I have felt dismissed & unheard at every single appointment we have had with Dr. Upplegger. My 7-month old had a 103 degree fever for 4 days & he brushed me off during all 3 of the phone calls I made to him. I finally requested my daughter see Dr. Thomas (the other doctor in this practice) & she was diagnosed w/ a double ear infection. I have found a new dr. more

Wonderful doctor and office staff 6/20/2007

Dr. Upplegger has been my son's doctor since he was a year old. The office staff is always courteous and Dr. Upplegger is very nice and understanding. The best thing about taking a child to this office is that they will see you within 24 hours if your child is sick. I have never had to take my son to the urgent care on weekdays because they always find a way to fit him in somehow. The only downside to this is that sometimes the wait can be very long, even for scheduled appointments. It's a small price to pay for not having to spend hours in an urgent care or emergency room. more

Pediatrics office 8/12/2005

Dr. Upplegger is a great physician and is in tune with the parents concerns during exams. Children feel comfortable with him and he loves kids a lot. He is the most knowledgeable doctor we have found in th Abq. area and diagnosed our son with reflux after he had been through 2.5 years of pain while other doctors had no idea what was wrong. The only downside is that he is a very popular doctor and there can be a very long wait even with well child visits which have appointments set up months in advance. more
