in New Bedford |
Had a pectoralis tear injured, after examination i was told it was a complete tear and promptly scheduled a surgery to fix the problem.I am extremely happy with the results. I would definitely recommend dr Bullis.. I had visited another doctor who recommended me to doctor Bullis as one of the few specialists in the south coast that can perform a pectoralis major tear surgery..
Fairhaven, MA |
I never go to doctors unless something is really bothering me. I Explained in detail about my pain and he completely disregarded what I had said. I informed Doctor Bullis that for the past week I had been icing elevating and taking 800 mg of ibuprofen 3 times a day, however my foot had become more swollen and the pain had increased. X rays came back negative and he said elevate ice and ibuprofen (same thing I've done for a week and it has just worsened) see me in a month no MRI Find someoneelse

Went to him from a second opinion on a hip replacement. He was rude and condescending, rolled is eyes and sighed when I spoke on how bad my pain was. I'm 50 pounds over weight, he suggested I have gastric bypass surgery before a hip replacement. When I said d rather not have the bypass I'd rather try to lose the weight before the surgery myself he asked sarcasticly "ok, so when should we schedule the surgery, 1 month?" I would not recommend this establishment to anyone

Dr Bullis performed a total hip replacement. I was walking in assisted in about 2 weeks and back to work in 5 weeks. I had no complications related to the surgery and am very pleased with the results.
in new bedford, MA |
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!!!!
in Swansea, MA |
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.
in Swansea, MA |
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.
