Dr. Ulstrup is professional, observant, and sensitive. She guides and partners with me to establish healthy life goals. Dr. Ulstrup's manner is kind and wise. She also answers any question I my have. She is a superb physician and I'm fortunate to be her patient.
Dr. Ulstrup is literally the best physician I've ever had. She's attentive, positive, and non-judgmental. She takes the time to explain things and listens to all reported symptoms without being dismissive.
Dr. Ulstrup always makes me feel as if I were only patient of the day. This was a visit to discuss test results. She carefully explained two problem areas, in once case drawing a picture to help me understand the situation. She offered options regarding treatment recommendations and we both talked about pros and cons of each. She was and always is extraordinarily collaborative, empathic and understanding. We agreed on followup tests and she explained both to me. I left feeling, as always, that I have a partner in my ongoing health. She is clear, consise, kind, and empathic.
I'm seeing Dr. Ulstrup for 9 years now and I was so relieved that I can still her with my change in insurance. I love her as my primary. She finds time to ask updates regarding my health, life and medications. Really pay attention to any questions/concerns I have. So easy to talk to and provide explanations. Very hands-on and friendly. She's the best!
Dr. Ulstrup is the epitome of what every physician should strive to be. She's caring, knowledgeable, pays attention, doesn't make me feel like a number or just "another patient." I've gone to her for years and I can't imagine seeing anyone else. I feel she has my best interests at the core of every decision.
Dr. Ulstrup showed warmth, compassion, concern and great knowledge during my visit! She helped me with my concerns regarding panic attacks, as well as my lack of concern about drinking too much to mask my problems. Her concern as well as the facts she gave me about how many drinks it took per week to cause cirrhosis of the liver really hit home and caused me to drink much, much less, and even not to like the taste. I passed this on to my boyfriend also, who was also impacted by this kind and intelligent lady's advice. I will also be reiterating this to my son who was present. She has done so, so much to help us all with this visit. I will be thankful to Dr. Ulstrup forever!
Dr. Ulstrup is the model of warmth and compassion. She takes time to ask questions of me and to answer all of my questions. She carefully went over my medications and suppliments and discussed pros and cons, side effects, etc. making sure I had a clear understanding. We talked about additional tests for me to take during the year and why. She always makes sure I have had time to cover all of my concerns and she never seems rushed. My husband and I feel incredibly blessed to have her as our primary physician!

I saw Dr. Ulstrup and she is the first doctor I've ever seen (in my whole adult life) who really listened to my thoughts and concerns. She was thoughtful and validated my concerns and made me feel extremely comfortable. she also went out of her way to spend time with me - more than any doctor I've ever seen.
Dr Ulstrup is the best GP I've ever had and I highly recommend her to family and friends. She has had a positive effect on my health since I've been in her care. In a world where most doctors and rushed and half listen, doctor Ulstrup is the rare breed of doctor who really cares and really listens.
Can't say enough about the care I receive from Dr. Ulstrup. Even though my specialists are at another hospital, I continue to see her, enough that I re-arranged my health insurance so that she stays in my network!
Dr Ulstrup is one of the most attentive doctors I have had. She listens carefully, has a relaxed attitude and calming presence, and gave assurance when necessary and expressed concern coupled with realistic suggestions when addressing my complaints. She asked appropriate follow-up questions which showed me she was listening and processing my issues.
Dr. Ulstrup is very caring, an excellent listener. I never feel rushed. She challenges me in a good way and brings up issues I might not have thought about. Sometimes I wish I weren't so healthy so I could see her more often!
Dr Ulstrup is a fantastic doctor and happy I found her. I am fairly healthy so visiting a doctor annually always seemed like a pain but she has made me very comfortable and I am able to discuss my physical well-being with her in a way that feels very productive.

I have been seeing Dr. Ulstrup for 10 years and she is always thorough and listens to me. She is very understanding and provides tough love when needed. She always spends plenty of time with me and you can tell she really cares about her patients.
Dr. Ulstrup is a fantastic physician. She was first my Dr. at N.M.H. in the early 2000's. I relocated out of state for 10 years. When I returned to IL she was taking pts. at Glenview so I restarted my care with her. I had thought about changing to a N.M. provider who was closer to my home but why ruin a great thing.
