Dr Uppal did a great job repairing my femur and hip. Explanations were clear and concise.
Dr. Smith treated me at Scripps La Jolla in the summer of 2008. I came in from a car crash in Baja with bilateral femur fractures, compound fractures of my right tibia and fibula, a fractured left ankle, and a Lis franc fracture/dislocation of my left foot. He fixed me up and I was released from the hospital and your care a month later. I went home to LA and it took me 4 months to walk again. I’ve since had a midfoot fusion, an Achilles tendon release, and various bits of hardware removed.
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!
Thanks to Dr. Smith my life has changed. After he operated, my life has changed. I am so thankful and amazed by the job he did. Now I am able to do all normal things that I used to do. Most importantly I have my leg will be always thankful for the amazing work on my leg.
My foot was dislocated, and fractured my ankle. Dr. Smith is an amazing surgeon!! Awesome work, and treated well. Such a traumatic experience, with the best outcome. Top notch care and surgeon!
Dr. Upall was outstanding throughout this entire difficult process and I am so very appreciative for his expertise. I only wish that you guys took Blue Cross/Blue Shield as I won't be able to see him anymore, however, l leave here with the confidence that Dr. Upall's care has done the job as good as it could be done. Thanks so much!
I suffered a fall of about 80 feet down a cliff. I had many broken bones. Dr. Smith specifically helped with the fracture in my left tibia. He explained what was going, what the surgery was going to be and what the rehab would be. He was very attentive, shared much knowledge and answered all my questions completely. I trust Dr. Smith's judgment and knowledge implicitly.
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. Smith was attentive, reassuring and thorough. He and his staff could not of performed better. I would recommend him to ANYONE in a heartbeat!
I broke my leg and really thought my leg would be ruined for the rest of my life but Dr. Smith's expertise and knowledge saved me. I am so grateful for him!
