    in DRACUT |
    I was suffering from intense head pain and I called his office, spoke to his wonderful, sweet secretary who as luck would have it offered me a same day appointment. He spent all necessary time reading my CT scans, and all reports I brought with me. He took the time to explain the CT scan to me when giving me my diagnosis. Answered all my questions. I have seen him about 3 or 4 times now and my sypmptoms have improved significantly but not completely gone away as of yet. He is very punctual.

    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.

    Dr. Fullerton 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.
