My mother is in the nursing home in Piedmont. Dr. Russell Ulrich is the primary physician who visits residents there. My mother was having severe "episodes" that no one could explain. Dr. Ulrich never bothered to go over to see what her issues were. After receiving calls all day about here issues I tried to call his office to get some kind of information. He wouldn't talk to me on the phone and only after a nurse requested he physically go in and see her, he did so the next morning. My mother requested that he call and talk to me about her issues and what his plan was to treat her. His answer was, "I can't promise I will call." This doctor is very unprofessional and he obviously doesn't care about his patients nor their family members. I see that he has previously had issues considering there is a board action "Professional Misconduct" on file. Seems like Dr. Ulrich didn't learn his lesson!!!!
