Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

Dr. Fullerton was helpful in providing medical information concerning my condition. Exercise and weight loss will not cure, but make my quantity of life better. I was able to explain my life style and the suggestions were helpful. This will be a long process, needing support and suggestions to maintain my health.

Dr. Fullerton introduced herself upon entering the room, listened attentively to me, had obviously read the notes on my issue prior to my appointment. She conducted a thorough exam then explained what the likely cause is. She showed me the x-ray that had been taken previously and clearly discussed what she saw. She asked about my preference for treatment after giving me some options. I appreciate her attention and professionalism.
