The office is always packed. Call backs can be difficult sometimes and there doesn't seem to be a direct email or line to an assistant, but other than that, the Dr. Uppal himself is very professional, knowledgeable and relatable. We stayed with him even though he was out of network as our confidence in his abilities made us feel that it was worth it!

Dr Uppal was able to rebuild my ankle that was broken into 20 pieces. I also had two broken bones and a broken shoulder. I am now walking and moving almost normally. I am so glad he was there to put me back together!

Dr Uppal saved my ankle. I suffered a pilon fracture and need a trauma surgeon. He spent a lot of time with my husband and I and answered all of our questions. I’m walking now and headed to a healthy recovery

My arm works because of this doctor, he didn't have much time for me but thats not the point of surgery, I understand he has other obligations. He is thankfully surrounded by great PAs.

Thomas in Milwaukee, WI – Mar 01, 2017
Did not meet with this surgeon until after d/c from 11 days of inpatient stay, despite the fact that he did surgery on me. Did not speak with my husband after surgery. Only met him once since discharge and I've had 3 office appointments.
