Dr. Albert L. Fullerton, MD says

I appreciate those of my patients who have taken the time to fill out surveys, and when satisfied, please tell your friends and referring physician. I also appreciate communication of any dissatisfactions to me or my staff so that we can improve.  I know that my profile is skewed by the fact that I have done independent medical examinations, or impartial examinations on behalf of the Court, and unfortunately the people whose disabilities are not validated can be disappointed.  The responses from my actual patients are gratifyingly favorable.

Dr. Fullerton was abrupt in his time with me and made it seem like the questions I was asking were a waste of his time. He did not let me fully express my concerns, which are in fact serious, and brushed me off repeatedly throughout my visit with him. I would not recommend seeing this doctor.
