My name is Dr. Michael Uphues.  I want to thank all of our patients for their continued support.  Our goal at Caduceus Medical Partners is not only to treat our patient's immediate medical concerns, but to inspire them to function at their highest levels physically, mentally, emotionally, intuitively, and spiritually.  I am Board Certified in Family Medicine and have been in practice since 1995.  I am also a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Certified Personal Trainer, specialize in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, have a Masters degree in Anatomy, taught Anatomy at the University of Illinois at Urbana, teach Clinical Medicine to Medical Students, Interns, and Residents,and am completing my Fellowship in Functional and Regenerative Medicine from the American Academy of Anti-Agning Medicine.  I have also been the performing the art magic for over 35 years and have performed internationally.  The art of magic has enabled me to plumb the depths of human psychology and taught me the importance of our need to experience mystery in our lives.  To me, magic is an awe-inspiring experiential moment of astonishment from having witnessed something beyond our comprehension.  It isn't about tricking or fooling people, it's about giving people an inexplicable experience that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.  The art of medicine is not just about diagnosing and treating illness.  First and foremost, it is about empathy and making a human connection.  It is about understanding another fellow human being based upon where they are on their journey through this earthly life.  It is also about assisting another person in moving towards self-mastery far beyond just the physical realm.  It is my goal and an honor to walk with my patients on this journey and to inspire them to be the best that they can be so that they function at a level that then inspires others.  The more individuals that are on the ever-elusive path of self-mastery, the better the world we shall share.  The reason this is so is because people on this path inspire, encourage, and bring out the best in one another.  It is a noble path, a simple path, but not an easy path.  It is simple in it's precepts, difficult in it's execution.  It requires commitment, discipline, drive, and determination.  I look forward to seeing all of you in the future and am grateful for each and everyone of you.
