Your healers are used to heal ezmode Naxx and Ulduar is a bit more serious than that?
I can't really think of another valid reason, unless you're deep into Ulduar perhaps.

You should log out in your tank gear. I can't give you a detailed analysis just by asking what gear you have, sorry.

In regards to talents, you need to pick up Glyph of Blocking. It is invaluable for damage reduction.

Barring errors in your rotation or incorrect management of abilities, I can see no major issues. May just be your healers. There are certain bosses that just, plain and simply, hit hard. They're hard to heal. If your healers think all bosses are just occasional heals and top-ups, then they need to restudy the fights.

Either way, the issue isn't clear from the information you provided :(

It would, however, help A LOT if you log out in your tank gear.

Ill sign out in prot gear right now so u can see my prot gear that i use in 25man naxx and 25man ulduar.

Looking at stats, you should be fine.

Honestly I've got BiS (non hardmode) gear, and (bad) healers tell me I'm hard to heal.

The solution to this problem is to either to get better healers or reroll druid, pally, or dk and gem all stam.

With a little more gear from Ulduar, you'll be ok. I'm feeling pretty comfortable in there now with some extra stam/armour on what you have.

It's definitely tough on the healers in there, they do need to step it up a lot coming out of Tier 7. On the same note, tanks need to play much more defensively and work to minimize that damage. In Naxx I was wearing a few pieces of DPS gear ^^.

When I first started doing heroics, the guild priest constantly told me I'm hard to heal, set up a combatlog for heals only, paid attention to buffs, no pom, shield, renew wasn't frequent,...
In short, figure out if your healer is doing their job right

Your stats are fine. Ulduar just hurts, the healers need to adapt. By the sounds of it they're used to someone else tanking who is maybe another class or better geared, or they're still in the Naxx mindset where everything was easy.

all the naxx gear i have it all 25man, i have few pieces from 25man ulduar.
and the healers we have are very good healers they have healer ulduar since it came out.
