He appears a little stiff or distant with me as a patient. The greeting was very perfunctory and he averted eye to eye contact when establishing my patient profile as he kept banging away on the keyboard. He never discussed mycondition which left me feeling rather unsatisfactory at the conclusion of the session.

Great doctor, listens to patients and is willing to look into things he's not sure about. However office space is super cramped and wait time is painfully long. If got to the point where people had to stand due to lackof seats. Really needs to hire someone that can get his office in order so the wait time isn't so awful. But right now whoever organizes this is doing a terrible job.

This last visit was with the nurse practitioner. I have been seeing psychiatrists for many years. I’ve been on many medications for my bipolar, and I’ve never had them go over my medications and how they work. She changed the timeI take it and I have never felt better. I’m thankful!!

Took over 2 1/2 hours to be seen but it was worth the wait- Dr. Ulrich was the first doctor in the valley that has been on my side and helped get me back on track with my medication. I'm soexcited to have met him and have a great and caring doctor in the area!

I explained to him my whole history, I didn't want to be treated until he knew everything about me. He read all the papers I gave him, and listened to me, and then made his decision. I am so happy Iwent to see him and ill be seeing him again.

Dr. Ulrich was very friendly. Listened to my concerns and what I had to say. I didn't feel like I was being rushed during the appointment. I'm new to the area and only had to wait 1 week before being seen(that was amazing not to be waiting forever). I'm looking forward to my next appointment. I left feeling like finally I'll get the help I need. I'd recommend him to anyone.

He was 2 hours behind. If you are not addicted to substances, don't go there. I just needed my antidepressants. It's not listed under zocdoc as Second Chance. The things I witnessed in the waiting room were awful.

There was a long wait, but I was a new patient, and there were many other new patients that day also. They had a text system, where after you sign in they can text you when you're about to be calledback, so you don't have to stay in the waiting room. A lot of the patients were very rude to the staff about the wait, which made me very uncomfortable. But all the staff that I interacted with were very nice, and helpful.

The office staff were cold almost grumpy, the reception room was full of people for an office of 2 doctors, nobody was saying anything good about the place, and overall felt uncomfortable. In fact felt so uncomfortable that I walked out.Forms filled out on Zocdoc were not accepted and had to sit and fill out everything again. I would not go back and I would not tell anyone I know to go to that office. Would think a Psychiatrist would do more to make a warm welcoming environment from the moment you walk in the door.

I like his bedside manner. The staff was a little unimpressive and the waiting room was jam packed with addicts. However, the wait was worth it and Dr Ulrich was very comfortable to talk to. He has late hours and was easy to schedule with.
