The “Tummy Doctor” Dr. April Ulmer–formerly with Digestive Health Center–is set to open her new medical practice, Kids and Tummies, in Gulfport, MS.
As a board certified pediatric gastroenterologist who specializes in GI illness in children, Dr. Ulmer is the only specialist of her kind on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Her new practice is scheduled to open Sept. 18, 2017 and can be found at the following location:
Kids and Tummies

Gulfport, MS 39507
The goal of Kids and Tummies is to provide exceptional medical diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the GI tract in children. Residents of the Mississippi Gulf Coast and surrounding areas can rest easy knowing that they don’t have to leave the state for quality GI care thanks to Dr. Ulmer’s Kids and Tummies practice.
Dr. Ulmer states that what truly makes Kids and Tummies unique is that it’s a pediatric-centered practice designed and built around the needs of the children and their families. Dr. Ulmer knows that “kids are not just small adults” and that when it comes to children, all GI care is NOT created equal; so it’s important for children to have the benefit of a board certified PEDIATRIC gastroenterologist caring for them. As an experienced physician practicing the art of “clinical medicine” with a “common sense” approach at Kids and Tummies, Dr. Ulmer strives every day to treat each child and family as unique and in a way that cares for and nurtures the “whole” child.
