Dr. Updegraff is one of a kind! She will be a hard act to follow for any other physician.

When you meet her, it's like you have known her all your life. She is a very personable, caring physician who really listens and gives you her full attention. I hope she stays in practice for a long time, because I don't think I could find another who could give the care and treatment that she brings to me. Everyone that I speak to about her has the same opinion!
