24/08/11 2 2 3 3 Dr. Fullarton was a hero for 2 yrs because he was only one that was able to diagnose a rare medical condition I had. However, on my last visit I reached out to him and it felt like a slap in the face. I left his office and cryed for hrs. My hero has fallen in my eyes and I am angry and intend on reporting him the medical board. He needs to get WAY more educated on Dysautomnomia and the range of things it can effect..and(it effect my bowels) he tried to tell me laxitive abuse long term was not dangerous! The nerve! MANY professionals have told me it can kill.He basically said thats not true. Its true and there are many documented cases of people damaging there internal organs doing this! I reached out for help..I hope the next specialist has a lot more common sence, because I? getting blood clots and tissue come out of me and it feels like someone is trying to rip my stomach out at least 50% of the time when I eat. At least he gave me over to someone else..at least I can say that.  Respond

18/08/10 4 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Fullerton annually for the past 9 years. He is a very "down to earth man" who does his work with great skill and a touch of humour. I have had 9 colonoscopies (higher risk)and not once have I had any troublesome side effects. We need more doctors like him!  Respond

23/08/09 1 5 5 5 Dr. Fullerton is one of my favorite Doctors, with a great sense of humor. He is great at what he does, but needs to speak to his very, very RUDE Secretary about her attitude towards people. She is one of the 'rudest' people I've ever encountered, and do not wish to deal with her ever again. Keep up the good work, Dr. Fullerton.  Respond

23/05/07 5 5 5 I was referred by a London physician in 2004 to Dr. Fullerton for a colonoscopy. Dr. Fullerton and the nurses that assisted him were very professional and did a tremendous job of putting me at ease. He took the time to discuss my procedure and possible causes of my problem with both myself and my wife. A truly first class doctor who I strongly encourage people requiring this test to see.  Respond

10/05/07 2 3 3 Dr. Fullerton is a really nice man. Quite efficient. His receptionist on the other hand needs to realize she is not the doctor and needs to stop thinking she is... Maybe answering the phone instead of picking up and hitting a button so we get busy signals would help improve her reputation.  Respond

03/04/07 4 5 5 Dr Fullerton is the best doctor I have ever seen. He was my fathers doctor as well and you could not ask for anyone better!! He knows his stuff and helps to get you the meds you need (to get special funding or giving you samples. His receptionist is quite helpful and people need to understand that she is very busy and does not have time for chit chat but is friendly and quite humorous.  Respond
