Ratings for Dr. Gary Fullerton
I just saw Dr, Fullerton for a procedure. I had him for same thing several years ago and so did my son. I L O V E Dr. Fullerton! He has been nothing but professional, interested in my symptoms and offered to follow me. I do agree that his receptionist is unreachable when you call in, however she has anther woman answering the phone who is very polite and screens her calls. But she will return my calls.
This man has taken care of me for atleast 20 years. He is caring, kind, and very knowledgable. He always listens to me with respect and interest. I take his medical advice and don't try to diagnose myself or think that I have more experience or knowledge than my doctor.
I can not recommend him after he misdiagnosed my mother's medical condition after she was rushed to the Woodstock hospital for her breathing difficulty. Both he and Dr Aggarwal started treating her for bacterial pneumonia instead of pulmonary edema as per her medical history. On day two my mother had developed fluid retention resulting in swollen hands and feet. Again we urged to reconsider their diagnosis and request for immediate cardiologist 2nd opinion. but we were rebuffed with derision, contempt and hostility for questioning their diagnosis and treatment. By day 4 I requested they consider a mechanical extraction of fluids but they again ignored us. By Day 7 I faxed a letter to the hospital administration documenting this situation and finally she was transferred to St Mary's cardiac care center. My mother was immediately treated with the mechanical extraction of fluids and within 10 days she recovered. Any reader must understand that pulmonary edema is mostly always misdiagnosed as bacterial pneumonia and anyone you know has a weak heart condition, then be aware of the consequences of a misdiagnosis by these Doctors. Hopefully they have learned from their mistakes.
The receptionist is horrible at her job..very rude to patients wrong professional specifically when dealing with patients. .I went in for couldn't get through on the phone to make a appointment. ......her reply was "I don't have time for this" seriously !!!
Dr Fullerton is a great doctor when you eventually get in to see him, wait times are a bit high. I believe this is only because he does spend time with each patient as needed and does not follow a 5 min strict schedule. However his receptionist is horrible at her job, not only does she complain about other patients when she thinks you can't hear and the office is empty, she lacks heavily on scheduling for referrals to other specialists and MRI's and CT scans. Maybe it's because she's been with Gary for years and she thinks she's queen bee, but it would be in his best interest to let her have an early retirement as she acts like everything she does is an inconvenience. Flat out - she's a nasty person.
Dr Gary Fullerton is one of the worst doctors I have ever had. I am a Type 1 Diabetic Insulin Dependent and he acts as though I am no concern of his. It takes MONTHS to get into his office to see him, even if I state that I am having issues with my levels. When I finally do get in to see him, he doesn't go over any of my glucose readings and doesn't take anything I say into consideration. As well, I have been calling him for 3 weeks to fax my prescription to my pharmacy with no avail. Diabetic supplies without a prescription are ridiculously expensive and I'm being made to purchase them as he isn't doing his due diligence as a doctor and taking care of his patients. I wouldn't even care that I have to wait 2 hours in his waiting room past my appointment time if he at least cared! Absolutely disgusting.
Dr Fullerton has taken good care of me and always has time to listen to your concerns and provide helpful information. He seems to have great knowledge of the drugs he prescribes and can explain their use and purpose. Also referred me for tests and to London specialist at the necessary time. Very happy with his services and care.
After a lifetime of going to Reddick I was afraid of talking to the secretary just to find out she was a ray of sunshine and I don't want to see that B at Reddicks again.Dr. Fullerton is a great doctor and wonderful person.He saved my life at the hospital where I was on the edge of expiring.He's super smart and visits are never an ordeal with long waits in crowded waiting rooms...Keep up the good work guys!
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.
