She knows my son has a food allergy and not getting to the root cause of chronic constipation. She is just shoving miralax down his throat to put a bandaid on the problem. When he takes it he has watery diarrhea 15 times a day and she wants me to just continuing doing that.

I saw Dr. Ulmar at GI Associates as a Pediatric patient where I underwent several procedures and she diagnosed me with Crohn's Disease. I was on 4 pills, three times a day for almost 10 years. When I got to an adult doctor I was informed there was never any sign of Crohn's disease in any of the procedures I had done. The endless amount of money and suffering I went through as a child to later learn I was misdiagnosed. I was not the only patient she misdiagnosed according to GI Associates.

Her staff is awful. Communication with the patient is spotty at best. Follow up is non existent.

Dr. Ulmer is absolutely wonderful. She is knowledgeable, professional, and has a great "bedside manner." She explains clearly what is happening and what needs to be done with humility and kindness. My child suffered with stomach problems for 17 yrs, and Dr. Ulmer has helped her when no one else could. If I could give a hundred more stars, I would! Her staff is very friendly, helpful, and courteous as well.

Extra long waits, or communication for follow ups, staff seems not to know what they are talking about. Dr doesn’t seem to truly care about helping kids.

Dr. Ulmer is EXCEPTIONAL! My children love how comfortable she made them feel from the second she walked into the room. She is a mother and her bedside manner shows she has compassion for her patients. She thoroughly evaluated my children and took measures to get answers. My 5 year old was very nervous about his procedure and she calmed his anxiety with her tender hands and soft voice. She is very knowledgeable, compassionate, and professional.

Best doctor ever! Not afraid to think outside the box for difficult to treat patients. Takes the time to really listen to your concerns and wants to help. She found the answers to my son's problems when every other doctor just brushed us off. She is a true gem and we need more caring physicians like Dr. Ulmer. She is not afraid to spend the time with her patients.
