    How was your appointment with Dr. Fuller?

    Dec 19, 2022
    I saw Dr. Fuller for a second opinion for De Quervain's tenosynovitis. Less than 2 weeks later, he performed a De Quervain's release surgery. I've since had the same surgery on the other side. Going to him was the best decision I've ever made! Dr. Fuller is definitely a doctor that listens to his patients.
