      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Fullerton says...

      Dr. Fullerton is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Geriatrics, Hospice & Palliative Medicine, and Addiction Medicine (by ABAM), as well as board certified as a Medical Review Officer (MRO by the MROCC), Forensic Physician, Medical Director for LTC and Hospice, and Home Care Physician.

      Board certification is a voluntary act and there is no mandate that doctors become board certified. However, board certification demonstrates a physician's exceptional expertise in a particular specialty and/or subspecialty of medical practice and has become the gold standard when looking for credentials of physicians.

      For the patient, board certification provides the assurance that doctors have not only been rigorously trained in their specialty, but have been tested with a national standardized examination and is actively improving his or her practice of medicine through continuing education.
