“I have honestly received the most fantastic treatment and the utmost care from Mr. Rajan Uppal and his personal assistant. From the moment I made the first phone call, I felt the warmth and reassurance that I needed to hear. I was impressed with the way he explained the procedure extensively and exhaustively, giving me the opportunity to ask many questions. I felt so confident he was the right choice that on my way to the car, I called my husband and told him. If I am ever in need of surgery again, I know exactly where to go. In my opinion, he is ABSOLUTELY the BEST!“
