"As a Hospice nurse, I am always happy to hear when one of Dr. Fullerton's patients are coming on service. As you can imagine, it is always an emotional time and sometimes involves very complicated care. Every week I witness the attention and incredible medical services provided by Dr. Fullerton's staff to his patients and when they are admitted to hospice, it becomes a collaboration between his amazing staff and our team. This collaboration provides a network of care that is such a benefit to the patient and his/her entire family. Thank you for all that you do and the amazing care that you provide for your patients."
