Prescribed a prescription that required discontinuation of another drug I was taking. That was not communicated to me. He even discussed with his colleagues and they all concurred it would not present a problem. I ended up with radomailses that put me in the hospital for 5 days and in rehab for 9 days (was suppose to be 3 weeks but!!!) My kidney health was in serious danger; I lost all muscle use of my legs. He says he did nothing wrong. He did say he took full responsibility, but!!!!!!!

I met with Dr. Sam Fulp, before my colonoscopy/endoscopy in June '16. I immediately liked him! I was impressed with his knowledge and bedside manner. It was a pleasure to see him on procedure day and he assured me that he would take good care of me. When I received my biopsy report post procedure, I have never had such a detailed report that I COULD ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND. I would highly recommend him! P.S. I especially liked the music during my procedure!
