I love having Dr Ulstad as my OB. She has been my OB since I was about 17. I have heavy periods and needed an OB just saw her because my mom had seen her, but now I have grown to love her. She did a surgery for me and I am very impressed. She is always very compassionate and sweet. She knows what she is talking about and admits when she does not know which says a lot. I trust her completely.

I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Ulstad -- she deserves 6/5 stars if I could give them to her! Not only is she experienced and knowledgeable, she is also kind, compassionate, respectful and makes you feel like her only patient, never a number. She takes her time during her appointments -- I've never felt rushed. If you don't have an OBGYN yet in Grand Rapids, I would recommend Sharla a hundred times over. She's THE BEST OF THE BEST.

She is great!!! I was scared and she talked with me first and let me know what was going on and what was next. My case was anything but normal. But I trusted her with my life. She has a way of calming you down by just talking to you. She tells you the facts and I like that.
