Meet Doctor Upchurch

Dr Upchurch

Sometimes people choose careers; sometimes careers choose them! I decided on neurology following a closed head injury at age 15. I spent a few months in acute care and then rehabilitation and once I discovered I could enjoy and practice neurology, I pursued this career with a passion. I am fascinated by the workings of the human brain and am knowledgeable about the many disease processes that can affect the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. My goal is to be an advocate for my patients and strive to be sensitive to their issues as someone with personal experience with neurologic injury.


I did my medical school and residency training in Houston, Texas, and have subsequently been "all over" (Atlanta, Savannah GA, Nashville TN, St. Louis MO, Carbondale IL (Chicago), Bennington VT, Jackson MI, and now Bala Cynwyd PA) with my training and career. I look forward to caring for you as I would care for my family members!
