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 nicely. I liked that he was such a down to earth guy, who is easy to talk to and didn't mind answering my many annoying questions about the whole process. Highly recommended!
