in Sumter, SC
Took my daughter to see him b/c she was referred for arm pain. He was rude and arrogant, yet he could not answer any of my questions. He did not have any bedside manners. Just dismissed her pain and other symptoms she was having. He stated he had nothing to offer. Highly disappointed.

Dr. Fulton was highly recommended when my daughter broke bones in her elbow. He was honest, professional and yet very down to earth. She was able to return to tumbling within 6 months after her surgery. Almost two years later and she's perfectly fine.

Dr. Fulton is the man! I went to see him after having wrist pain for a few months. He identified a wrist tumor for me and performed a surgery to remove it successfully. My life is totally different being able to use my wrist at 100% now. The recovery was quick and the scar healed up really...more
