He is simply a gifted physician. Not only does he have noteworthy medical expertise, he is also a lovely, caring person who has been responsive every time I have had a gastrointestinal concern. I had an upper endoscopy and felt safe during this pandemic because of the care taken by Dr. Fulp and the practice.

Dr Fulp is an excellent Dr, person and human being and these characteristics are not often to see in many doctors. His dedication, his medical knowledge, his patience to explain in details every symptom, disease, disorder, treatment make him to be one of the best Doctor I have met as a patient and as a MD (because I am a doctor too). Please who needs a good doctor who treats his patients with high quality of care.. do not hesitate to meet with Dr Fulp. The waiting time to see him is worth it.

Diagnosed me with Crohn's disease 25 years ago and has been my gastro specialist ever since. I suffered at first but I would go in remission and then have flare ups and he would get them under control in no time. I have now been in remission for over 10 years. He really cares about his patients. My current medication has worked wonders for me. He is never in a hurry during an office visit. I trust him with my life.

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!
