followup appt cancelled 4 times by Fullick

My husband saw Dr. Fullick for his shoulder which he said get an mri and then just gave him a steroid shot. I agree that did help his pain but Fullick did not appear to try and help him. My husband has not been able to get a follow up appointment and it has been 6 months! He has been cancelled on 4 times for the followup. This guy is in it for the money and could care less about patient care. Do NOT go see him!

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Would highly recommend Dr. Fullick

I would highly recommend Dr. Fullick. I had seen another orthopedic surgeon twice over 6 months for rotator cuff pain until the pain got so bad that I requested an MRI. This other doctor was arrogant and never acted that interested in my problem. He said he’d do surgery without needing to read the MRI report. So as a new patient, I took the MRI report to Dr. Fullick. Dr. Fullick spent time and explained everything about the surgery drawing a diagram of my shoulder, the tendons and what would happen in surgery. He was patient and answered every question I had. I had so much confidence in Dr. Fullick that I scheduled surgery then and there. On the day of the surgery, he went over again, drawing a diagram on the hospital bed pillow (!) what he would be doing. He performed arthroscopic surgery, making 5 portal incisions. He repaired a tendon which had a full thickness tear, another which had a high grade tear, and severe tendinopathy in another. He also scrapped my hooked (type 3) acromion bone (bone that forms the roof of the shoulder). In subsequent office visits, he answered any questions I had and always gave me confidence that I had chosen the right doctor! I’ve been in physical therapy for my shoulder for several months (it’s a slow process). In my books, he’s a great doctor!

Very impressed

I was referred to Dr Fullick by Walter Lowe who scoped my right shoulder many years ago. After an initial visit with a followup after my MRI, it was determined I had a tear on my labrum and possible tear on my rotator cuff, both from years of lifting. I will be scheduling arthroscopic surgery in August. I have total confidence in Dr Fullicks ability to get me right again. Being a fellow aggie, I know he's the right choice. Will give a followup after my surgery and recovery.
