I do not recommend this psychiatrist. They do not implement appt. reminders which does not help families dealing with multiple households and imperfect communication (no matter how well intended). He does not offer suggestions more than writing scripts. When families are struggling to survive, he is available to fuel the negativity rather than support. It costs nothing to implement a reminder system. I am truly disappointed. I was actually warned about his practice, but we were desperate.

Dr Fulsom is amazing. I've been going to him for a little over 13 years. After going to 5 other therapists I finally found someone who was interested accurately diagnosing and treating my condition. He has been the reason I have been able to stay pretty well balanced and understand my condition and warning signs when they appear. He listens to my concerns and offers insights that only a seasoned psychiatrist can. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I drive from Dallas to see him.

I have Asperger's, Tourette's Syndrome, ADD, Anxiety Disorder, and Borderline Personality Disorder. He really liked to see if he could push my buttons. He would call me by the wrong name at every visit, talk down to me, changed my meds so many times that I could not even count, and would not listen to anything I said. I confronted him one evening during an apt, and tried to explain that I felt I was being mistreated. He promptly dismissed me as a patient.
Called rx in on Thurs by Tues still wasn't here. I called the office several times and only got the machine. The second message I left saying I really needed to know if it had been mailed as my child was out of medicine & had to take benchmarks without. Fulsom calls me back says it was put in the mail Thurs & child is no longer his patient because I was rude to his staff. (I hadn't even spoken to his staff).A week later rx came along letter stating canceled services. So he lied about it too!
