Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?
Are these sentences correct:
a) "You should look for a doctor who is UP-TO-DATE ON those issues."
b) "He's a very good doctor, and he's VERY UP-TO-DATE ON everything in his professional field."

You don’t need the hyphens in either of them. You can think of it like this: if you are trying to put the adjective before the noun that it describes, and the adjective is more than one word but still a single term, you use hyphens to join the words of the adjective, but if the adjective is after the noun, then you don’t use hyphens.
