Dr. Upender is the best. He is caring and attentive. His calm demeanor helps me be honest with him and talk about my health problems. He shows concern and gives me options that I can understand. He is prepared for my visits and is efficient. One of my favorite physicians at VUMC.

Dr. Upender was obviously very knowledgeable about his specialty and explained his recommendations well. However, I did not feel that he listened closely to my questions, as he would cut me off and his answers did not fully address my questions.
