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.
