Specialties

Dr. D S Upton has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I am an MD and Psychiatrist

I am very impressed. He is the doc for my two kids, ages three and five. He is smart and cares. He has his own kids, so that gives him even more perspective. My wife recently changed her internist and one big issue is already better. When my internist retires, I will switch too.

We met Dr.Upton almost 6 yrs ago right before our son was born. We are VERY happy with his care. He is an excellent doctor, spends time with us and gets back to us promptly when I have left messages. I recommend him all the time!
