Dr. Ulm is so over the top. I love getting to talk with him because he is always honest about my health. He has changed my life and made me a new person. His staff is wonderful. Rony is always so helpful and is on top of things when I call her. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.


All the people in the office are so nice and patient and understanding. Clinic days are really busy, the waiting room is packed and people get grumpy and restless with a really long wait but the staff is patient and good at crowd control. Amy Wynn is wonderful. She is patient as well, Supplies good information, offers possible options clearly and basically has an excellent bedside manner.


Every visit here has been good. Staff is very friendly and and quality of cars is always top notch. Dr. Ulm has a great bedside manner and made sure I had all of my questions answered. Great office and staff.


We have had a good experience but I feel like it is hard to get phone calls returned. We have had more luck with better communication when we have called to ask questions about appointments.Amy has been good/great at answering questions and sharing information for us.


Amy Wynn is wonderful. I just got really bad news and she made me feel better about it while thoroughly explaining the problem, likely causes of it and outlining the steps ahead. It is especially hard to make it easier to receive bad news. I'm thankful but want to share my experience. I recommend her.


Responds very well to my needs. Very attentive and understanding of my issues. I would not like to see anyone else. Does a great job.


Erica has been amazing through the process from beginning to end of brain surgeft. She never rushes me and listens very attentively to all of my questions. She is very kind. Part of a great team. Ronnie is awesome. She is very professional and kind. She is always there for me when I need her. She is very organized. She is the best in the business. She is part of a great team. Dr ulm saved my life. He is very intelligent. He saved my life and I will be forever grateful. He has awesome bed side manners. He was very kind and informative to my family after surgery. My oldest daughter said he even drew an example of my brain. She said not only if he a fantastic brain surgeon, he is also a great artist. Dr ulm saved me so my daughters will have their mother around a long time. He has the best of the best on his team.


I give Dr ulm a 5 star. He's kind and caring


I cannot begin to tell you what a miracle these people have done for my son. I saw him go from excruciating pain and almost down completely to up and about in one week- no pain hardly at all. All I can say is these doctors are a God send for my son. Would highly recommend them to anyone. All I can say is they care and they know what they are doing. Thanks to you all and God Bless. May your business flourish.


Very personable and thorough.
