in Auburn, MA |
Dr Upchurch is the epitome of what doctors should be. She is knowledgeable in her field of rheumatology but goes further to help her patients understand their options for making their quality of life the best it can be. She is genuine, kind, and a person I trust with my healthcare decisions. I would and have recommended her as a health care advocate to family and friends in need of a rheumatologist. I'm thankful she's there for me. I wish everyone could be that lucky.
She has changed my life!!! She is so busy but always takes time to make sure I'm doing ok and able to manage my pain!! She really cares about how I'm doing!! I'm so grateful for her and her wonderful staff at Heywood Hospital!!!
