Dr. Ulmer was born on March 13, 1945, in Fort Myers, Florida, and spent most of his youth in Akron and Toledo, Ohio. Before his senior year of high school, Dr. Ulmer and his family moved to California, where he attended Pasadena Polytechnic School.
Dr. Ulmer attended DePauw University in Indiana, where he was a double major in chemistry and pre-med. He graduated in 1967 and was elected to the honor society Phi Beta Kappa.

His vast knowledge, coupled with his no-nonsense approach and excellent service, has made him one of the leading dermatologists in Southern California. His philosophy is simple: Treat people with skin disease effectively and completely. Over the last three and a half decades, Dr. Ulmer has established a tradition of providing the highest standard of care.
The popularity of cosmetic and laser treatments has surged in recent years, and dermatology is constantly being modified to accommodate the newest research and technology.

He strives to add appropriate new procedures to his arsenal of treatments and therapies.
With the opening of the doctorULMER Cosmetic & Laser Surgery Center in 2005, Dr. Ulmer has been able to serve the latest demands of his field. However, even while utilizing the up-and-coming skin treatments, Dr. Ulmer still enjoys the challenge of seeing his traditional dermatology patients with their large spectrum of skin conditions.
Dr. Ulmer’s hobbies include golf, spear fishing, and boating. He resides in Long Beach with his wife, Jeanne.
