Went to the office for hand pain, numbness and tingling of fingers. Was told I had no insurance when checked in. Told secretary to call to verify that I did and was told 'we can't call for every one that walks in the door'. Paid $100 for the visit. Was told the brace that was holding thumb straight was 'useless' and all I had was tennis elbow. Move forward 2 months and I still haven't received my money back. Surgery being done in Boston next week. This place is a joke!!!!

I had a total knee replacement May 10th. I had suffered for over 30 years with knee pain and discomfort. I could not be happier with the results. Within three weeks there was minimal pain and now two months later, my knee and leg strength have almost completely recovered. I could not be more pleased with the doctor, his demeanor, his staff and most importantly the results. He was more than happy to address any questions and concerns.

My husband who is 84 years old was so very happy with Dr. Bullis. The Dr. was so caring, understanding and professional in his care. I would recommend Dr. Bullis to anyone who is in need orthopedic care.
