I trust her with all the time to take care of me all the time. She has saved my life so so many many times.love you dr. Kristen.
I couldn't have found a better general doctor in a million years. I've seen her for years and take my entire family there! She stay on top of the latest medical info too. She is best of the best.
Love her!! She's the only Doctor who properly diagnosed me after seeing many doctors who failed to!
Best patient care I have ever received from any Doctor.She makes you feel comfortable and spends the time to answer any questions you may have.
Dr. Updegraff is exactly the type of doctor that people who avoid doctors need! She makes you feel like you've known her forever. She genuinely CARES about you. She doesn't judge. She makes you feel comfortable enough to open up about issues so that she can help you. She rocks. Hands down, best PCP you can have!
When you visit Dr. Updegraff, it almost feels like you're visiting an old friend. She makes you so comfortable, she takes her time in the exam room, and she answers all my questions. I couldn't have ordered a better primary care doc!
l love my Doctor. She takes time to listen and explain all the information that you need reference your condition. Also you receive a copy of your lab results.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Updegraff. Once she is in the room you really have her attention. I have never felt rushed or that anything was being overlooked. She is so much more than a general doctor and is always super professional. I am not good with taking maintenance medications like I should and am one to question almost any rule that sounds a little silly to me, but I must tell you that I do exactly what she tells me to do and with very little debating with her about it. I trust her 100%. I trust that she knows me well enough that if she tells me to do it, I'm going to do it. There was a time when I thought I was special: as in, I was possibly one of her favorite patients. After discovering many friends that share my same doctor, I have learned that we ALL feel this way.. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US!! She is a master of her craft and I am thankful that she is mine and my husbandâs doctor.
I love Dr. Updegraff and the entire staff. All are very welcoming and helpfull. So happy I found them years ago!
I am blessed to have such a caring physician. Love everything about her and her staff was very helpful.
I don't care for very many physicians, but I LOVE Dr. Updegraff! It takes a while to get in with her, but I can sure see why. She's is very personable and knowledgeable as well. Definitely worth the wait! I do NOT give compliments lightly but she is my favorite physician ever.
This office/physician does not provide in office visit follow up that I am aware. I have received none. This is why I gave the "Follows Up After Visit" rating that I did.
Dr. Updegraff is the best. She is at tentative to health & overall we'll being.
I am 65 and have only trusted 3 physicians in my life. Dr Updegraff is top on that list. I have seen her over the past 4 years and my wife has been with her for 3 1/2 years as well. She has treated us for everything up to and including life threatening conditions. The level of care she provides is fantastic and her judgement is spot on. We have put our lives' in her hands and because of her we are still here to brag on her. If I were you I'd beat a path to her door... she is "THE BEST"
Dr. Updegraff is by FAR the most caring doctor I have ever encountered! She is genuinely concerned, NO INTERESTED in the well being of her patients. I never feel rushed! I ALWAYS know she is listening. She goes above and beyond and actually feels for her patients. I love her. I would recommend everyone I know to go to her! My daughter will go to her. I just can't say enough!
I have read the reviews and honestly don't understand some of the comments. I am in the medical profession - I understand healthcare today and I have to say Dr. Updegraff is one of the very few physicians in the Savannah area that have a great mixture of professionalism and personalization for their patients. I have been to several physicians but I choose to stay where I am now. I have never seen or heard her be rude to anyone. With healthcare today, it is important to have a baseline history along with diagnostic testing to begin a history on you as a patient; yes these may be costly in the beginning but very helpful long term. Of course, you always have the right to refuse certain tests; that is part of a patients bill of rights... your choice. I honestly must agree tho with the office staff issues. There will always be issues like that, anywhere you go. Feedback to the office manager would be appropriate. I highly recommend Dr. Updegraff to anyone.
Do not waste your time and money to see this doctor.
Doctor Updegraff is the BOMB! She IS the best Family doctor in this area. If she finds something with her patience she doesn't stop there. She finds the problem if there is any. Her presence just makes a patient feel better. Best medicine is her personality towards her patient. I refer all my friends and anybody that ask me about her and her staff. You are the "BEST!"
I was very disappointed in Dr. Updegraff and her staff. Her staff does not allow patients to speak with the doctor. They do not advocate for the patient. The office is overstaffed which you might think means better customer service, but it is just the opposite. My biggest complaints are the excessive tests that seem to be counter-intuitive to common sense, just to run the bill up. They will not treat patients unless you can afford the ridiculous tests they demand to run for common everyday problems that anyone with a lick of common sense could diagnose through Web MD.
She is very down to earth and compassionate. When I saw her for the first time, it felt like we had known each other for years. I highly recommend her - she is thorough and very involved, and listens to what you want. Individualized and personal Ralph care at it's best.
Dr, Updegraff is an outstanding physician. Her professional credentials are top-notch and her compassion and one-on-one skills are outstanding. But...and this is a big "but," much of the staff borders on incompetent--lost paperwork, misinformation, scheduling glitches. And South Coast Medical is highly restrictive--to the point of impacting care. So this is a conundrum. Dr. Updegraff is a joy and I feel very confident in her ablilities as a physician. But the other issues are significant. I wish she'd go to another practice. And I know they must do something to train their officer personnel better. I highly recommend the doctor.
Why can't all Dr's be as compassionate and genuine? Dr. Updegraft wrote the book on being both a real person and a superior doctor. Unlike most of her colleagues, who are condescending and belittling, she speaks with gentle authority while providing the ultimate in patient care. She also knows how to make one smile. And she knows her 'stuff'. To all the other 'doctors' that I've had the misfortune to run across here in Savannah, take a jog over to Dr. Updegraft. You can get some first-hand experience on what it takes to be a caregiver - not one who sees a patient as just another buck to make your boat payment with. Kudos, Dr. U!!!
Rude and judgemental....would not recommend. Save you money and time.
Exeptional bedside manner. Very friendly and personable.
Me and my Daughter go to her we just love her she easy talk to,
Since I work in a hospital, I deal with doctors everyday. Dr. Updefraff is the best out there. She is caring, understanding and most of all, she takes her time with you. She makes you feel like you are her only patient. An office visit with her is like seeing an old friend and just sitting and catching up.
