Last 3 appointments, the wait time in reception area was about an hour. Once is unacceptable; 3 times in a row means you're incompetent and don't have any respect for your patients' time. Disregards insurance-- don't be surprised to get something from your insurance company that your simple claim was denied, followed by a bill from his office for hundreds of $ for waiting an hour, then seeing someone you've never seen before for 15 minutes. You can do a lot better. Look elsewhere.

I had two spinal injections. The injection procedures went ok. They were ineffective, but as far as I know they were performed correctly. Who am I to tell? In contrast to the procedures Dr. Bulger's office staff was hard to work with. Very poor communication. Had to contact them multiple times to get answers. He ordered a procedure for me (MRI). My insurance needed more clarification on the reason. After almost 3 weeks of nothing being done I went to another physician and had my MRI the next day

Good luck getting ahold of anyone in his office. I had major back surgery & after had nerve problems in my feet & chins. My surgeon referred me to Dr Bulger. I had one injection & Dr Bulger was nice & told me we won't leave you in pain & wrote me a prescription. I had to have another injection & Dr Bulger didn't even come & see me before releasing me with no prescription for pain. I have been thrown back & forth & can hardly get Angela in his office to call. Horrible experience. Not recommended.

Dr. Bulger was referred to me by Dr. Greg Pearl. He has been nothing but great. He is the only doctor I would trust to give me the stellate ganglion block. Office staff is somewhat hard to get to know, but that doesn't reflect his skill and ability. Don't let that get in the way of his skill and care.
