Dr. Ullrich was wonderful examing my mother of 81 years of age. We were very pleased with how thorough and patient his staff was. Dr. Ullrich carefully reviewed and recapped the results with my mother and I. He took adequate time to make sure we understood the exam results and allowed time for us to ask questions. A great job was done to explain and provide examples in terms we understand. The entire staff made us feel at home. One of the staff assistants even came outside to help my mother out of the car and walk her into the office.

Dr. Ullrich performed cataract surgery on both my eyes with excellent results. It felt like a miracle to have my weak, "lazy" left eye back to 20/20. He is a strong communicator who explained my treatment options in ways I could easily understand. I would recommend him to family and friends without hesitation!

Each visit that I see Dr. Ullrich, I learn more about my eye conditions. He is very knowledgeable and thorough, yet explains medical terminology in an understandable way. I would highly recommend him!

RUDE RUDE RUDE My wife took her 90 year old father to Dr Ullrich, and once again he and his staff were RUDE, DISRESECTFUL, and ARROGANT. Her dad is worried about changing Drs and who will be able to help him with his eyes, thus he feels helpless to say anything. Of the many, many Dr visits that she has accompanied both her elderly parents on over the past 4 years, Dr Ullrich's office is the worst by far and large. It's not just us. Just look at many of the other reviews; same poor RUDE MANNERS.

We were met with a rude receptionist. Then who called us back to the room was eating and wiping his food on his shirt and called our name and walked away. By the time I was able to get my mother standing I had no idea where this gentleman had gone. Gentleman was the most pleasant employee. When the doctor came in with a scribe the doctor was pleasant and greeted my mother. However he put his chair directly in the way of my mother. The scribe made no effort to help her and was rude.
