Dr. Upplegger is one of the few pediatricians who still gives out his home phone number and lists it in the phone book. He also always comes to the hospital after delivery to meet his newest patient. He is enormously popular, which I think explains some of the negative reviews. He does not have sick and well waiting rooms and probably should. I do have long waits for each visit, but still would not go to any other.

when my child was born he came in to the hospital and introduced himself and just asked to look at the child, i obliged, she didn't leave the room he just gave her a once overand dint even let me know there was a charge.(which i was latter billed $140 for) Seriously why would i pay some Dr. to look at my kid when she is in a hospita??l!!! THEN when i took my THREE DAY OLD BABY to the office we were not put in a separate room (as is normal) away from the "sick" people as a newborn has ZERO immune system, but made to wait in the hot waiting, that had a couch that was disgusting, in room with people coughing all over for 45 mins. My wife was almost in tears. When i make a appt for Dr. Upplegger i expect to see him not some random person which is exactly what happened, and when i called to speak TO HIM to express my concern i got a call from staff, not him and he couldnt be reached. So other than him wanting my money he could care less and thats has been proven time and time again.COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE i changed that day.
Then in a follow up to express my displeasure, i was asked if my kid was o.k. and when i said she is fine i was told that this converstion is over, and hung up on!!!
DONT SEE THIS DR., NOT EVEN ONCE OR YOU WILL REGRET IT.

I first met Dr. Upplegger 23 years ago when he was on call for another dr. I gave birth to my first child and thank God I met Dr. Upplegger. I stayed with him and am glad I did. My second child had several special needs. I remember the compassion on his face as he told me about her. He cared for both my children until we moved away from ALB 15 years later. He save my babies lives more then once. He wasn't just our doctor but a trusted friend. Now my babies are all grown up, but I still remember the fine care given by Dr. Upplegger. Love him!!!!

We love Dr. Upplegger not only because he has so much experience and seemingly knows everything, but also because we're impressed with the fact that even after practicing for so many years he is still up to the minute on any new research that has come out on anything ranging from vitamins to the newest technologies for CHDs. We have one child who was born with a complex birth defect and Dr. U was extremely knowledgeable, but never tried to "be the expert" - he was the prefect balance of informed pediatrician and supporter of our efforts, but he always knew when to refer us to a specialist. We have called him at all times of the day and night and he always calls back within minutes. How many pediatricians put their home number on their business card?! The downside of having such a great doc is that you sometimes sit for hours waiting to get in for your scheduled appointment, which is very, very frustrating, but he is worth the wait.

My sister who is a mother of four had the worst pedatrition for her kids. After seeing the stress of a bad pedatrition I decided that I would make sure I found the best one out there for my two kids. I feel as though Dr. Upplegger is the best out there. He has always seen my daughter within 24 hours if she is sick... and as a first time mom he listened to my many concerns and disscussed them with me. Now, I have a wonderful daughter and a new little son. When my son was born Dr. Upplegger was there in a matter of an hour to check on him. He also saw him one more time before we left the hospital. He is a great doctor and his whole staff is wonderful. When ever I have a question of concern they always call me back right away. I would tell everyone out there to use Dr Upplegger!

Dr Upplegger was my pediatrition growing up! I always loved him and was never afraid to go see him. I have taken my daughter to him and he is still great. He is such a sought after doctor that his office is very busy so that is a small downside. My sisters still see him and like him too. I am so glad he is still in practice and would recommend him.

...to be charging for a visit - in my opinion. Evidentally, this pediatrician has been around for many decades - yet, his "bedside manner" is far behind his experience. Visits were less than 5 minutes.... and the wait just to see the assistant to take vitals was always an hour. Needless to say, I searched out another pediatrician.

PROS: Centrally located office
CONS: Very long wait times for appointments, in/out visits
