What People Say About Dr. Sam Fulp, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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!
