Patient Comments (3)

Receptionist was nasty and rude over the phone. No matter how good Dr. Ulis might be, I decided to cancel my appointment because I’m not giving a dime to an office that’s paying insubordinate people like this awful woman.

Avoid at all costs!!! Dr.Uliss didn't listen to my mother's repeated complaints that her sight was changing & that she was having difficulty seeing. Despite the repeated appointments she had with him & his incompetent technician he failed to listen to help her. I finally took her somewhere...more
