Excellent experience! Courteous staff & Dr. was great!
Dr. Fuller was professional & helpful explaining the details of a surgical procedure - I have since scheduled the procedure.
Totally love Dr. Fuller. Have seen him previous for myself. He also provided emergency surgery for my son a few years back. Would recommend him to anyone. Love Cooper doctors! Have been a Cooper baby all my life. Born there in 1975. My grand mom was a Cooper nurse in the 40-50's/student of Helena F.
When I first met Dr. Fuller, I could tell he was a very intelligent man, which makes my visits to his office enjoyable because I know he knows what he is doing and cares about me as a patient.
Dr. Fuller is a good listener.
Dr. Fuller excellent on giving shots in the hand. I hardly felt anything.
