    • I took a fall and tore my rotator cuff. I am so happy that I was referred to Dr. Ulmer. He is amazing. He takes time to listen and really explains the processes and what to expect.

    • Dr Ulmer performed my torn rotator cuff surgery at Portland Adventist Medical Center in October of 2019. From the very first visit, Dr Ulmer addressed my every concern with kindness, patience showing incredible skill and knowledge. I had no qualms before or after the surgery due to his gentle bedside manner. My confidence in his skills was absolute. The surgical experience, although very painful, was well worth the effort. Thank you, Dr Ulmer!

    • I highly recommend Dr. Ulmer. I was in an accident and his office called me back within hours of my initial call and squeezed me in for an appointment that same day. Over the next few weeks, Dr. Ulmer was extremely responsive. He returned my calls on the same day I left him a message. He answered all of my questions in a way that helped me understand what was happening. He is kind and a truly compassionate doctor. He's one of the best doctors I've ever seen.
    • Dr. Ulmer has a great bedside manner. He listens to his patients and has excellent explaining skills. He will explore every option available before choosing surgery to cure what ails you. Great doc!
    • It has been two weeks since I had partial knee replacement surgery by Dr. Ulmer. I wasn't looking forward to a surgery, but knew I was miserable with my knee the way it was, and since surgery I am walking better than before. It's amazing and I'm so happy! I now have a new lease on life thanks to Dr. Ulmer.

    • I saw Dr. Ulmer for my right shoulder surgery-while i had seen another doctor who wanted to give me a 6" incision Dr. Ulmer made 5 or 6 small incisions to repair torn rotar as wells as tendons hanging by a thread. I also had a hole in my shoulder so it was way worse than the MRI had showed. I was back at work in a week and its now just the 3 month mark and i am amazed how quickly i have healed. I would definately recommended Dr Ulmer for surgery to anyone.

    • Dr. Ulmer provides excellent care. Long ago I severely injured my shoulder and have just been working with it as best I could, I reinjured it at work and was treated under Workers Comp. Dr. Ulmer did a first-rate job repairing the damage. His office staff are great and handled WC with no trouble. I wasn't involved at all. Though it was a WC claim, Dr. Ulmer made it clear that his first priority is to the patient. I would recommend him to anyone who wants an excellent orthopedic surgeon.
    • I would highly recommend Dr. Ulmer. He was a great surgeon and explained everything to me before hand. He told me the average recovery time and was right. It was a pleasure to have him as my doctor.
