Shivani Upadhyay, MD

Born and raised outside of Chicago (Go Bears!), Dr. Upadhyay has embraced the climate and lifestyle of Santa Barbara. She loves the outdoors for hiking, spending time with her family (including a seemingly variable number of dogs), reading and eating (no regrets!).

Shivani particularly loves the long-term relationships that her group creates with their patients.
