I loved the doctor and the RN assisting him.
Dr. Ullal is an incredible listener and approached my concerns with a curious and open mind. I felt like the time he spent with me was untrusted and focused. After my visit, I felt very relaxed and hopeful thanks to his calm, thoughtful demeanor.
The dr. Was definitely going over all my medications and my problems I was having and really trying to get to the bottom of the solution. I was pleased.
I was very pleased with my provider. The appointment was my first visit. The doctor listened to my health concerns and answered my questions. I would highly recommend him to others who are seeking an endocrinologist.

He is a lot more attentive to me than some other doctors I've been seen by in the past .
Very prompt, professional and detail oriented.
exceptionally kind and caring doctor, I was as comfortable as I could be during several thyroid biopsies
Dr. had a great manner, was very attentive, and explained next steps in my treatment. Office personnel were friendly and courteous. Surgeons office set up this visit on my behalf - and a follow-up visit with surgeon immediately following - being that Dr. had limited time - my appointment was at 12:00 pm and f/u w/surgeon was at 12:20 pm. I didn't feel rushed
Dr Ullal and assisting Fellow were positive, reassuring and compassionate. They answered all questions thoroughly and were gentle yet precise in procedure (FNA). Dr Ullal himself phoned me with results and plan of care.
Dr. Ullal welcomed me to his practice after I requested him to provide me with endocrinology care and is a very concerned, caring doctor. He is intelligent and treats me as though I am as well. I appreciate being respected for what I say because I try to contribute to my own wellness. He treats me as a complete person, not just one particular system, and considers my complaints and makes suggestions on who else may help with them.
I was impressed that the doctor took the entire time to spend with me and discus several points. He looked at the EPIC records and determined a trend that my regular PCP might have missed. I will discuss it with my PCP when I see him in 6 weeks.
Dr. Ullal was just very down to earth and wanted to find answers to the same medical issues that I did. he listened to me. I haven't had that experience with many providers lately.
before I went the first time, I was scared and alarmed with my condition( hyperthyroidism) Doctor Ullal put me at ease, gave me informational papers that I could read, and at home I was able to reference when needed. I was pleased when a nurse was able to answer my questions that I had over the phone. the whole staff is genuine . I do not know everything about where my condition will lead me, but I feel comfortable with listening to what my doctor tells me to do

This was my first visit to endocrinology and Dr Ullal. While I was not able to choose a provider in order to get the first appointment available, I was very pleased with this doctor and the visit overall.
Dr. Ullal was a great listener, and was incredibly supportive in my health and wellness goals living with Type 1 diabetes. He was very understanding of my personal frustrations with the disease, and offered very genuine, educated advice.
I was with a new doctor and he was excellent.
I have only seen this endocrinologist twice, after years with a different one. he listened to my concerns and responded immediately by performing an exam with biopsy. he called me about the results. the second visit he suggested a sleep test and issues to discuss with my pcp. he was thorough and thoughtful.
Everything went well as far as I could determine.
very good at getting back to you
this was my 1st visit with him and he was an excellent doctor to my perspective.
provider did not address all of the concerns my pcp requested him to. I was also told that my follow up care could be closer to home at the Monroeville practice. This provider doors not even work out of the Monroeville practice. the provider doesn't very little time with me and told me that I was fine, that all the symptoms im experiencing must just be from something else and that he would see me in 6 months.
I was a new patient and this was my first appointment with provider, It was a very positive experience
My experience was great, it literally ticked all the boxes.Completely satisfied, thanks.
My overall experience with Dr. Ullal was excellent. He was professional, knowledgable, & compassionate. He explained all of my test, review my medical history & took his time with this initial visit. After the visit (same day) he called me as he said he would with my test results & explained a new medication he ordered at the pharmacy. I would highly recommend this physician.
Very good, I appreciated that he took the time to listen and come up with suggestions. He explained the next steps very clearly, and I felt good leaving with a "plan of action" and I'm hopeful that things will improve.
I was very pleased with my visit! Excellent experience with Dr. Ullal, the diabetic specialist, and nursing staff. I would recommend to anyone!
Dr. Ullal was a breath of fresh air. He asked questions and spent a lot of time to understand my situation. He explained what might be happening in easy to understand terms without seeming to be annoyed by my questions. I felt like we were a team troubleshooting my health situation to come up with a solution other than a typical Dr. visit who gives me script and sends me on my way. He understood that I wanted a cure and not a treatment. For the first time in four years, I believe my health will improve.
Good at explaining and listened well
very nice and knowledgeable young man
Dr. Ullal didn't give me any new information beyond what I already knew about possible causes of my fatigue. He only ordered a thyroid test I have previously had to rule out hypothyroidism causing my fatigue, and when it was within the normal range, he offered no other suggestions. I explained that many people, myself included, have improved energy when their levels are low normal, but he did not address this.
Was my 1st visit and was satisfied with the time and thoughts into the issue. I do believe that 1 part of it was not really related to the current problem, but did appreciate the overall thought into my well being
