I had my ACL and meniscus fixed by Dr. Uppal at ROC Surgery Center. Everything was first class from preop to postop. I'm 2 weeks out, off crutches and on a bike. Took only 5 pain pills first off. Dr. Uppal is my go to guy for Sports Injuries. Could not recommend more highly. 5 stars.

DR. Uppal removed bone spurs from my left elbow in 2009 and my right in 2015. He did fantastic work both times and have had no issues in either elbow since. I have complete confidence in him and his surgical expertise.

While traveling to Reno from out of town, I tore my meniscus not even know how I did it. After being referred to Dr. Uppal, from my initial visit to surgery was 24 hours. Each person we encountered was professional and expedited the process in a kind manner with a smile. Within 24 hours, I had gone from a MRI to your office visit to surgery the next day at 7 am. By 9:30 am after my surgery, I was back in my fifth wheel recuperating. I am super grateful Dr. Uppal to you and each member of yo

Quite frankly, my family has had very unsatisfactory experiences with doctors from the ROC in the past. However, Dr. Uppal has been a god-send to me. From the beginning, he has been forthright and realistic regarding my severe injury, yet he and his staff have been extremely supportive. It was no small feat making all the arrangements necessary to get me into surgery. He has listened to my concerns and gently guided my path toward recovery. He and his staff have my family's deepest gratitude.

Dr. Uppal was very professional and attentive pre and post op. And the ladies at ROC that took care of me before and after surgery where so amazing. Wish we had knowledgeable Doctors like Dr. Uppal and his team in Winnemucca. And the knee specialist, Nate, was a great help also! Thank u all very much.

My experience with Dr. Uppal and the support staff at ROC has been excellent. My surgery went exceptionally well and I expect to have full use and mobility of my shoulder in advance of the one year normally prescribed recovery period. The Doctor / Patieent relationship is by far the best I have encountered! Your questions are taken seriously and discussed with true patient concern and directives to follow that help you meet your goals to full recovery!

I had arthroscopic knee surgery done by Dr. Uppal. It involved cutting out a torn part of the meniscus and removing cysts. He and his staff were very accommodating, and I appreciated how clearly he explained everything. It surprised me after the surgery how eager he was to show me exactly what was done and his true interest in my full recovery.

Dr. Uppal is the most caring & very concerned for his patients. I had slipped & fell on ice in Jan 2017 had surgery in oct 2017 & Dr.Uppal is the surgeon that did my surgery. Had frozen shoulder, minor tear in my rotator cuff & my bicep was messed up. BIG THANKS FOR HIS CARE, CONCERN & EXPERTISE I AM ALMOST 100% BETTER. DR.UPPAL IS THE GREATEST I WOULD GO BACK TO HIM & ONLY HIM IF I EVER NEEDED TO IN THE FUTURE.

Dr. Uppal did a fantastic job with our 14 year old son. He had a very serious injury to his patella . We are very grateful for Dr. Uppals expertise and skill. It has been a long recovery for our son but we know that his surgeon has played an enormous role in the success our son has had with his healing process. We trust Dr. Uppal implicitly- as well as physical therapist Brian Fearnley at the South Roc PT. Thank youor fixing our boy!

Dr. Uppal and his team were amazing. I ruptured my quadriceps tendon and met with Dr. Uppal the next day. He clearly explained the injury, arranged for the necessary testing and scheduled the surgery. He and his team were very compassionate and answered all of my questions. The surgery went well and after 4 months, I have almost all of my flexibility back and I'm continuing to work on getting back my leg strength. I highly recommend Dr. Uppal and his team

Dr. Uppal and his staff were amazing. They understood my activity level and did their best to ensure I would be back to top performance. This was my second ACL surgery in 5 years on the same knee. (Different doctor did the first surgery). I am extremely pleased with my care and surgery outcome. I am grateful to have had Dr. Uppal do my surgery. My knee is solid!! I would highly recommend him to anyone who has a high activity level.

Dr Uppal was very thorough in explaining my treatment plan pre/post surgery. I never had to wait a long time during my visits with him. He called me the day after surgery to check on me. Dr Uppal and the rest of his team, including the physical therapists/assistants/aides are all very nice, friendly, and courteous. I would definitely recommend this entire team to my family and friends.
