Nathan Ullrich, M.D., feels fortunate to live and practice medicine in the Gorge, where he says the medical community has priorities that are in line with his own.
“What I see in this community are a lot of providers who are really focused on providing quality care and also committed to leading a balanced life,” says Dr. Ullrich, the newest member of Gorge Urology, who moved with his family from Pullman to Hood River in 2011. He and his wife have two boys.
“I wanted to be in a place where my boys could grow up and have opportunities to do so many different types of recreation in a community that supports that,” he adds.
Dr. Ullrich completed medical school at the University of Washington in Seattle and his residency at the University of Arizona in Tucson. He practiced urology for six years in Pullman before joining Drs. Gary Gingrich and Marc McAllister, in The Gorge.
As a urologist, Dr. Ullrich is trained to diagnose and treat all types of urologic disorders in men and women, as well as disorders of the male reproductive system. He has a particular interest in helping people with urinary incontinence and other types of dysfunctional urination patterns.
“What I especially like about urology is working with men and women to improve their quality of life,” he says. “I like being able to offer both surgical solutions for people’s problems as well as non-surgical therapy.”
