Well before surgery – choosing a doctor:I scheduled consultations with 3 surgeons (all outside of my local market because I couldn’t find any before/after pics online from local doctors that I liked). However, after meeting with Dr. Ulm, my husband and I both felt so confident and comfortable with him, I cancelled my other appointments. He took time with us and never made me feel embarrassed or uncomfortable. He is kind, meticulous and compassionate. He listened and made recommendations while letting me explore all of the options available for my size. His credentials are 2nd to none; he’s double board certified and did his fellowship at Harvard. Dr. Ulm is the man! I am lucky to have him as my doctor.
