    I'm a health care worker and have intensive care and emergency room experience, but when my daughter broke her arm me and my wife was a mess. After the xray from the ER, it confirmed our suspicion. We were a wreck at this time, then Dr. Fulp walks in and explained to us the extent of the injury and the need for immediate surgery. We waited for about an hour and she was in recovery, and we went home the next day. It seemed like a nightmare but Dr Fulp was there to help us.

    Dr. Fulp was very interested in my case as an individual. He explained thoroughly the procedure and risks in a way i was able to understand. He addressed all my concerns. I was impressed by how he continues to show interest in my follow up appointments, as my bone is still healing. My husband liked that he was approachable and available and exceptionally sincere.
