Minimum wait time of at least an hour. Staff never asks for urine sample. Last visit, after I asked to give a sample because I had blood in my urine the toilet didn’t flush and there was no soap, paper towelsor wipes. In addition, this office books appointments without your consent and sends an email telling you when THEY want you to come in for appointments and even set up your surgery date without discussing it with the patient. At my last visit I went in on a Monday due to excessive flank pain and blood in my urine over the weekend. He told me they wouldn’t have the culture back for a couple of days so he would prescribe an antibiotic Incase it was a UTI. At no time in the 3 minutes he was in the room did he examine me. The next day I was taken to South Nassau Hospital due to a kidney stone passing. Knowing I was scheduled for surgery 4 days later he assured me he would call with results of the urine sample ASAP. He never did. In fact, I called his office, was informed he wasn’t in that office on that day but they would get him the message and have him call me. Never happened.

Dr Ulmer is a good provider however, the wait time is extremely too long which, I’m sorry to say, makes him look really bad. I’ve been to him 4 times and have waited at least an hour before being called intoan exam room and another hour in the exam room with a scheduled appointment. This is outrageous. I manage a medical facility and would not tolerate this form of negligence.

Dr. Ulmer is a very nice young doctor who answered every question I had as well as imparted some medical wisdom to me. I had to wait about 15 minutes for him to see me but I won’t let that take away from my personal experience with him.
