Went back because my hearing (ringing) got worse after surgery( $25,00 billed to my insurance company for ear tubes, yes $25,000) and the doctor covering for Fuller said he was too busy to see me and then proceeded to ask rudely " Why did DR. FULLER PROMISE YOU YOUR HEARING WOULD GET BETTER????? I could not believe ( my ears lol) that he asked that, BUT HE DID! And I responded that dr Fuller did in fact say that my hearing would improve( it's worse, a lot worse) and when I told this to him he responded with " well I don't promise my patients( customers) anything! As he left the room aNd never returned to even look at my ears and I never heard back from Dr. Fuller. My bill showed 3 surgeries I have only 2 ears, and when I asked about that little discrepancy they refused to send me an explanation of the bill as they are required to by law. I am currently looking for another ENT that doesn't belong to that medical group.THANKS
Dr. Fuller was recommended to by my GP, so I had high hopes of getting the wax impaction in my right ear removed. However, the experience was bad from start to finish, and 2 visits made no progress clearing my ear. While it was the treatment that most concerned me, you should know that protocol at this office is to collect upfront whatever they think they might be charging you for that day--regardless of whether you have insurance, regardless of what's needed, and regardless what they actually do. Their rationale is "go ahead and pay" and if the Dr. doesn't do everything we've charged you for, we'll refund the balance. So even though I have insurance, I paid for the exam and hearing test before the Dr. saw me--and they requested an additional $18 as I was leaving, but were unable to explain what the "upcharge" was for. I was surprised that although Dr. Fuller was unable to remove the impaction, the audiologist (nice guy) was enthusiastic about fitting me with double hearing aids that same day--alerting me not to go to Costco because "ours are so much better." (If my right ear is impacted, is this really the day for me to buy my first set of hearing aids?) My concerns were reinforced on my follow-up visit when the receptionist requested up-front payment for another full exam and another hearing test--in spite of this being a "follow-up" visit in which I spent less than 5 minutes with the Dr., in spite of the impaction still intact, and in spite of them already having done a hearing test. When I resisted, they sent me to Dr. Fuller who disavowed any knowledge of what "they" charge and actually SAID it's the insurance companies driving them broke, that they'd lost money in 3rd & 4th quarters, and with one more losing quarter they'd be out of business. (Is this my concern?) Please don't think my dissatisfaction is purely financial. I wouldâve paid ANY amount if I felt confident in the treatment I was getting. However, on BOTH visits Dr. Fuller walked into the exam room with no notes, chart, or knowledge of who I was or why I was in the exam chair. One the first visit he carried a computer and spent 10 minutes reading someone else's chart, asking me irrelevant questions. On my follow-up visit he had no chart at all and didn't know my name, let alone why I was back again. I feel bad for Dr. Fuller and for me having had this experience and having to write this negative review. Sorry it's so long, but I wanted to be clear. I will never go to this group again and don't recommend it to anyone else.
he is dedicated to doing as many procedures as possible on medicare patients with no regard as to weather they require it or not[procedures generate income]. his ct scans are useless and done on antiquated equipment. I would advise strongly that people avoid this doctor.he does not follow the dictum "do no harm"
This doctor barely looked on my son's ears and said "he needs to have his adenoids removed" he also said "there might be a lot of blood" I was shocked that he would say that in front of a child...He didnt explain anything else...THIS IS A DOCTOR FOR ADULTS, PLS FIND AN EAR NOSE DOCTOR WHO ALSO KNOWS PEDIATRICS.. I took my baby for a second opinion and he does NOT need ANY surgery. Thanks God...do ur homework
Made an appt for a friend. Got in same day. Diagnosed my friend correctly and followed up appropriately. They don't make doctors like this anymore. He's a great otolaryngolist and a great person.
