Although the doctor is not an issue those sisters in the front are extremely rude, how have they lasted so long?! Not seeing the doctor in follow visits isn't an issue, those sisters in the front are what greets you, and they always great you with a look of disappointment. Let's not even get started on their phone skills you. An literally feel their unhappiness, disappointment and utter rudeness over the phone.

I was given minimal information. An incesision that should be 1inch turns into 3-4 inches. Came to see me for 30 seconds after the surgery. Had horrible back spasms for 3 hours and no help given. I wish I had looked for another dr.

I have been in pain for 7 months and deteriorating physically due to an auto accident. Dr. Fulp was able to diagnosed the problem on our first visit, then prepare the medical intervention. I had my spinal injection this week, and for the first time since my auto accident have been able to sleep (pain and discomfort kept me up) and the pain discomfort and significantly reduced. Thank you, Dr. Fulp for helping me.

MY son fractures his ankle in 2 places. DR FULP did surgery on him he healed nicely and recovered quickly. NO complications whatsoever it has been 5 years and he is doing great. I also like to add that my brother had 2 surgeries by DR FULP. One was shoulder. A year later was hand both tendons and ligament. My brother works in construction and never had any problems. Both my brother and my son were very satisfied with DR FULP. I recommend him highly. He is a great surgeon and has a kind heart.

my father in law had pins inserted in his hand . He was seen by Dr Fulp at the office . he followed up with him 4 weeks later and scheduled a removal of the pins. My father in law requested to see dr fulp and was made possible to see him in between his schedule. anyone who wants to see him just needs to ask . my father in law was never told Dr fulp would not see him.

excellent orthopedic surgeon
I did not see my wife before the operation and did not fix her knee .

I'm a health care worker and have intensive care and emergency room experience, but when my daughter broke her arm me and my wife was a mess. After the xray from the ER, it confirmed our suspicion. We were a wreck at this time, then Dr. Fulp walks in and explained to us the extent of the injury and the need for immediate surgery. We waited for about an hour and she was in recovery, and we went home the next day. It seemed like a nightmare but Dr Fulp was there to help us.
in Mission, TX |
Dr. Fulp was very interested in my case as an individual. He explained thoroughly the procedure and risks in a way i was able to understand. He addressed all my concerns. I was impressed by how he continues to show interest in my follow up appointments, as my bone is still healing. My husband liked that he was approachable and available and exceptionally sincere.

True professional. Not charming bedside manner but factual , straightforward , competent.
Saw him only twice. Once before and one after surgery. Was informed he only did surgery and i would not see him again. Is this third world medical care or what!!!
