Specialties

Dr. Scott C Ulmer has the following 4 specialties

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Caring and thorough doctor

Dr. Ulmer and my Neurosurgeon most likely saved my life. Was sent to Dr Ulmer by my Neurosurgeon to determine if Plavix,an anti-platelet, worked on me and also if Prilosec interferred with the actions of Plavix. Dr.Ulmer ran the test which showed results that Plavix most likely would was not working on me. Because there was some general controversy about the reliability of the test, Dr. Ulmer went out of his way to discuss with other doctors (I believe at Duke University) whether the test was reliable and gave me the answers in detail. Based on Dr. Ulmer's information, my cardiac surgeon and I were able to make the decision in favor of cardiac bypass surgery vs. a stent. I could have died if a stent had been used or ended up with emergency bypass surgery. All of this happened in 2009, and I am very grateful to Dr.Ulmer for the time and effort he put in to getting me accurate answers. I do not work for Dr. Ulmer as one of the people who wrote suggested and who called Dr. Ulmer evil. He is definitely not evil and is a caring knowledgeable doctor.
