I was in pain daily for 5-6 years due to diverticulitus. Decided to have this addressed finally, and THANK GOD I stumbled across Dr. Wallin. He knew exactly wahat was occuring with my body. Asked me questions, walked me thru the process, and made sure I was comfortable w/ the decisions made. There was a good probability that I could've had a permanent ostomy bag attached. Upon learning this, I damn near ran out of the room. I'm 45 and couldn't imagine dealing with that the rest of my life. I'm certain that would've been the case but for Dr. Wallin! His deft hand, along w/ the professionals who work along side him, spared me that, and I am BEYOND appreciative. I am almost completely healed and living pain free! If you need someone who can put you at ease, answer any and all questions, as well as provide outstanding care....this is the Dr. for you! If it weren't for COVID, I'd probably still be hugging that man. If you have any issues, Dr. Wallin is the truth.

I came to this doctor based on a recommendation due to a severe reoccurring problem with bleeding and other concerns. I explained my issues and he did a very basic standard exam. He was dismissive and arrogant saying that not only he couldn't help me but if any other doctor said that they could they were misleading me. Due to the chronic problem I have had many of the standard exams and know what it usually costs. The billed before insurance cost of this type of initial visit and brief exam usually varies between $250 - $450. After insurance discounts before copays etc. the net cost is usually between $150 - $300. Dr. Wallin billed my insurance $788! The billing claimed a "surgical procedure" which is idiotic. I assumed that it was an error and called the billing department immediately after I received the bill. The billing department said they would suspend the billing and asked for a review by the Polyclinic in Seattle. I heard nothing for over a year and assumed that it ha

Dr Wallin was pleasant enough, but do not let this fool you. His exam was was way too rough, and this was completely un-necessary. The force he used actually created a different issue and made me worse. He was "nice" and when he smiles it makes you think this has to be endured, and it does NOT. When I complained to the PolyClinic, their "committee" sided with him because he lied and said what happened (during the exam) was MY fault. He's a jerk with a smile on his face.

Everyone at the Polyclinic were fantastic. Dr. Wallin was exceptionally nice and courteous and took the time to make sure that any questions I had were answered without being hurried. Very professional and superb bedside manner. I would not be surprised to see him listed in Seattle's Top Docs very soon. My highest possible recommendation for any health professional.

Dr. Ulrik Wallin is a wonderful surgeon. He takes the time to educate you on the situation, is sensitive to the patients needs, is respectful and very careful to explain what possible outcomes are. He helped my daughter through a very traumatic (for her) surgery and is carefully following up to make sure everything is going as planned. I cannot be more thankful for the care she received. I would highly recommend him and his expertise to anyone requiring fistula surgery.
