Dr. Fullerton answered many questions I had initially about my condition and organized all my test and appointments. Then her and her staff stayed on top of all my appointments keeping in touch with me to make sure I didn't miss any. For three days she guided me from my first visit with her to the last with my orthopedic surgeon. all in 3 days. Phenomenal!
