You will not find a better surgeon. Great bed side manners and most importantly has the knowledge/experience/reputation that you want/need when having someone work with your nervous system..

I saw Dr Ulm this past year for my neck. He and his staff made me feel like family, which made all the difference in the world to me. I received the best care I could have hoped for and would recommend Dr Ulm to anyone in my family.

I can’t say enough about Dr. Ulm. I had so many questions my first visit and he sat with me and went over everyone of them. He didn’t make me feel rushed at all. His staff was also amazing and helpful. I can’t say enough about them
