I can’t say enough good things about Dr Fuller. Dr Fuller performed over a four hour surgery removing cancer from my chest. He was very thorough and knowledgeable. He took the time in his office to explain everything in detail before the surgery and the morning of the surgery. My post op visit again was not rushed as he sat down and talked to me about how I was doing. I highly recommend him.

I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone. Dr. Fuller did a unnessary unnessary surgery. Because I question him, in the hospital I was treated poorly. My surgery was 7 weeks ago. I haven't felt well. I call his office and get no return phone call. They violated my privacy rights. I would really get a second opinion, before using this DOCTOR 3

I had a Hiatal hernia, It got so bad I could not eat, except for tiny portions. On May 9th 2013 I had surgery to put the hiatal hernia back in the proper position. On May 12 I was able to eat soft food. I was released on May 14, saw Dr Fuller on the 16th and returned to a normal diet. All along I had no pain at all. It was amazing. Dr Fuller is very pleasant and dedicated person. I would recommend him highly. I have had no problems eating and swallowing Five stars.
