My daughter had a concussion and we saw Dr. Inderjeet Uppal. She spent about 12 min asking questions and then ‘push on my arms’ excercise to test her strength.
I’ve been through a concussion exam before with my other kid so i know how thorough they can be and how they test their motor and neurological skills Dr Uppal was not at all thorough.
She didn’t properly test her or at least go to the lengths another doctor did in the same scenario.
She said she needed to be seen by a pediatric neurologist which made me feel more at ease that she would provide a authorization for a specialist who knew what they were doing.
The specialists office contacted me promptly to tell me the next available appointment was 3.5 months out, would I like to book it? I said my daughter has a concussion and is not getting better still having the symptoms 2 weeks later so they said go to Urgent Care.
Wow! I contacted Dr Uppal’s office again and they said ‘let me look into this” called me back to say they booked a pediatric neurology appt for us in 4 days.
I thought that was great. Until the place Dr Uppal booked us for is NOT pediatric neurology- he is a regular pediatrician and we won’t see her here, Dr Uppal made a mistake in booking me somewhere that made no sense.
Doctor plus staff not doing too well in assisting us in care for my daughter- sloppy!
Gotta feel trust for your doctor and office staff and do not feel this at all
