Dr. Carla Upperman attended medical school at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. She completed her residency training at the Monroe Carel Jr Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tennessee. She is board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
Dr. Upperman joined MD Pediatric Associates in 2019. She sees patients in the Flower Mound office.
“My journey into medicine started with a fascination with how different parts of the body work together to keep us healthy and how modern medicine strives to heal us when they don’t. I became even more interested in medicine when studying neurobiology at Harvard and learning about how incredible the human brain is.
I chose pediatrics because I love working with children of all ages, seeing the uniqueness of each stage in life, and watching them grow from infants to young adults. It is a joy to be able to work with parents and families to help their children have the healthiest future possible, and I feel truly blessed to have such a dream job!”
Dr. Upperman and her husband recently welcomed their first child! She enjoys cooking a variety of foods, although she is partial to Italian food and baking. She enjoys travel, although she grew up in the DFW area and is happy to be practicing in her home state. Dr. Upperman also speaks Spanish and is a Qualified Bilingual Provider.
