Dr. Fussell Says:

There are reasons why the waiting room seem always full and the wait time is sometimes long. It is called, "In Demand".  First, in contrast to many others, I still spend my mornings at the hospital seeing my patients when they  need me the most. Others will only see healthy individuals and then send them elsewhere when illness arrives.  I will be there with you and see you through...

Horrible, Horrible man. Uncaring himself and staff. My aged mother kept a urinary tract infection for over ten days because he would not return calls to us or to the home health nurses at Care South. Finally took her to ER where she was diagnosed with compression fracture from fall due to UTI. He leaves patients in the waiting room for HOURS while their sons/daughters have taken off from work to bring them in. He once let my mother go for two weeks with an impaction before she got any relief
I am familiar with this complaint. I had researched it and found the allegations to be untrue. All of the calls were returned to Home Health within 3 hours. It was a home health nurse that fabricated this story. I had also discussed this with the patients two daughters and apologized. I feel that resolved the issue.

Three hours is a common wait, when you are on time for your appointment, many in waiting room agree. He does nothing for your health but make it worse. See an Holistic MD. you would be much better sooner.

The front office receptionist that answers the phone and makes appointments is VERY rude and is too busy trying to interrupt you and get you off the phone, to actually listen to what you have to say. Every time I have been here my wait time has been 2 hours and up. Also, I scheduled an appointment once and called back the very next day to cancel because I would not have a babysitter and they were wanting to charge me a cancellation fee. They said you had to cancel within 24 hours, which I did

There are reasons why the waiting room seem always full and the wait time is sometimes long. It is called, "In Demand".  First, in contrast to many others, I still spend my mornings at the hospital seeing my patients when they  need me the most. Others will only see healthy individuals and then send them elsewhere when illness arrives.  I will be there with you and see you through those bad times as well as the healthy ones.  At times that means being up most of the night trying to help someone through the biggest crisis they have ever faced.

Another reason for delay is that I take my time and listen.  I decided a long time ago to be thorough and listen, rather than see someone with one hand on the door knob.  Your problem is more important than my time.  You will get the time and effort necessary to address your issue. Sometimes that means I am still working at 8 pm at night. That is what I signed up for.

By virtue of my sub-specialty, some things will take extra time. I see many geriatric patients who have vision, hearing, and cognitive impairments. That results in extra time spent to achieve results. Things have to be repeated, spelled out, and sometimes it takes quite a while to get your point across.

I also have been involved in leadership.  In the past, I have been the Chairman of the Department of Family Medicine or Internal Medicine at all three hospitals.  I have been Chief of Staff at Doctors Hospital in the 90's and am the Chief of Staff Elect at St. Francis.  I also am a Past President of the Muscogee County Medical Society.
