Avoid this doctor

Took our daughter to him when he had a clinic in Balch Springs in 2007. He said our daughter was just wanting attention and was pretending she was sicker than she was. After this she had 2 months in icu in children's hospital and 1 make a wish trip (yes she almost died twice). So this quack almost caused my daughter's death. Found out he now works at care now on 30/beltline. Would recommend not using him.

Horrible Doctor

I'm suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome due to four robberies happening at my job all of them at gunpoint all of them where I was the one being total to gather the money with the gun to my face. Dr. Fulton came in and looked at the date the last incident happened and the date that I visited him which was 3 months apart and said in my opinion you've been off work too long to which I replied what are you basing that on you haven't asked me anything about my condition you haven't even asked me what happened and I asked him if he had even read the note and he told me no he was just looking at how long I had been off work. So I told him I do want to return to work I just want to return to work in a safe environment I don't want to have a gun stuck in my face when I'm trying to do customer service and he said well you can go to your car now and have a gun pulled on you it can happen to me here at this doctor's office to which I replied why would you tell someone suffering from PTSD something like that, that makes me uncomfortable coming into your doctor's office if you guys really have to deal with robbery the way that I have to with working at a loan Processing Company and he told me no they don't he was just making a point, which makes no sense to compare the probability of a CareNow facility getting robbed versus a check cashing store or loan company and all he did was terrify me even more not to mention I had to bring my son to the doctor's appointment with me so hes looking at me frightened too because the doctors point and I think about the fact that someone could be in my car with a gun when I get in all the time now because of these incidents and for a doctor to tell me that just made that scenario even more realistic and terrifying. Avoid this Doctor at all cost if you want to get well.
