Specialties

Dr. Surinder K Uppal has the following 2 specialties

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

  • 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.

Good thing I had an appointment for the hour and 45 minute wait to see the doctor. Tried to reschedule after an hour and a half, but it was going to be three weeks before I could get another appt.

Patient's view

My only problem with Dr. Uppal is his wait time. It's terribly long, and sometimes as long as two hours for a scheduled appointment. Everything else he does well,thoroughly, and efficiently. He is one of very few male practitioners I've seen that does not avoid rectal exams-an extremely important exam.
