Short of upgrading to 4.7 to leverage the UPDATE_CACHE_FREQUENCY feature, you can try setting the CURRENT_SCN property to Long.MAX_VALUE when you connect. Another alternative would be to set it to one more than the creation time of your tables. You can control the timestamp your tables are created at by setting the CURRENT_SCN property on the connection making the CREATE TABLE call. More on that here:

How many nodes you have in cluster? How many regions in that phoenix table? Can you do batch upserts?
If Phoenix is querying for MetaData for every upsert in a preparedStatement then it definitely sounds like a bug/performance problem.
IMO, 30 ms is not really that horrible of a performance given that you also have a secondary index. Have you tried increasing number of write clients?

I don't have option to update my CDH5.7. My upsert query is taking 30ms with one fully covered index on table.

I am using Spring JDBC template which uses prepared statement internally. 

NamedParameterJdbcTemplate jdbcTemplate = jdbcTemplateMap.get(event.getNamespaceName());
jdbcTemplate.update(upsertQuery, event.getFieldMapPair()); Do I need to use explicit prepared statement? Link to code

Are you using a prepared statement for upserts? IMO, query should be compiled only once when prepared statement is used.

Best bet is to updgrade your cloudera version to cdh5.7. It supports phoenix 4.7. See -

We need to insert to do 10K upserts per second in our phoenix table. We are using phoenix 4.5 with CDH5.4.4.  Problem is each upsert query is making rpc call to read metadata about the table. 

"o.a.phoenix.compile.FromCompiler.createTableRef 446 - Re-resolved stale table"

Phoenix have added feature to specify "UPDATE_CACHE_FREQUENCY" in 4.7 version. Any way to apply this in Phoenix 4.5 by caching metadata at client side? My table schema will change only once in 6 months. This would be really helpful for me.
