From the practice’s leading edge technology down to the bowls of candy placed in the patient waiting area, patients and physicians are drawn to Dr. Uppal’s undeniable radiology expertise as well as her compassionate demeanor.
“I am a scientist and a Johns-Hopkins trained physician, but what makes me different is my deep concern for the patients that I serve.

During her medical training, she was the recipient of two prestigious research awards and has authored numerous articles and presentations on advancements in radiology.

Dr. Uppal founded Charter Radiology to provide the most advanced level of radiology services in a more personal environment. Her level of attention to both the patients and the physicians she works with is unique in a healthcare environment that sometimes values quantity over quality. Charter Radiology offers the most sophisticated, state-of-the-art technology including 3 Tesla wide bore scanners, which is the gold standard in imaging equipment today. In addition to the best technology, Dr. Uppal surrounds herself with the finest radiology team to offer patients an unparalleled experience.
“Yes, I have the education and credentials, my readings are accurate, and I have the very best imaging technology, but it’s the genuine concern that I have for my patients that sets Charter apart. People want great medical care from a doctor who wouldn’t treat strangers any differently than she would treat her own family. And, that’s what we deliver at Charter Radiology.”
