Didn't seem too interested or readily give information for my knee condition. If I didn't ask questions or know what to ask, then she wasn't volunteering to talk about it and that was it. Felt flat, with the wrong person, and why did I bother to be there. Gave me a shot in the knee... ??

I consistently get excellent care whenever I visit Dr Fullerton & staff. I appreciate the professionalism, competence, patience that an experienced physician and her staff can bring. I am a 68 yr-old with an overwhelming problem list that has been building over the last decade. Ten years ago I had a little stroke plus Hepatitis C and both affected my cognitive ability and executive functions. Though I've improved some, I've just had to adapt to and learn to live with my deficits. it is still frustrating when I can't organize or articulate well. Dr. Fullerton, has patience to listen to what I am trying to say versus just trying to move me along as some do. I think she is wise and gifted and I so appreciate her taking the time to listen and to explain/clarify complexities about my condition, treatments and expectations.

Dr. Fullerton fully explained my options for non-surgical management of my arthritic knees. Since cortisone and rooster cone injections had been basically ineffective, and I am a faithful exerciser to strengthen my quads and my core, I thought I had exhausted all my options. Instead, she had suggestions for a special brace and for referral to a pain management physician for nerve block injections - all doable to maintain my active lifestyle. I am so glad I saw her!
