Patients Say:

“Dr. Upchurch is the bomb! He is so kind, caring, understanding and patient. I wish every doctor I see was just like him. He definitely has a servant heart. I felt so confident that he knew what he was talking about. Plus he came highly recommended.”

“He is an excellent physician.”

Dr. Upchurch Says:

“The ability to form long-term relationships with thousands of interesting patients over many years is the great joy of being a physician. Not only do these relationships enrich our lives, but they simultaneously create satisfaction when we together overcome medical challenges.”
