Internist Ilanko Upendran, M.D., strives to solve problems for his patients. “I really enjoy the challenge of internal medicine: making the diagnosis and following through with that diagnosis. The best part is establishing really good relationships with my patients.”
Dr. Upendran was inspired to become a physician at an early age. “My dad was a physician. I used to see the impact he had on his patients and that he was making a positive influence on their lives.” Today, Dr. Upendran takes after his father in his personalized approach to patient care. “I treat patients like my own family. I allow them to be open with me and let them know they can trust me. I try to make a difference in their lives.”
