Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "A friend of mine told me about Dr. Fuller's great work with allergies. I have been suffering with allergies from the time I was 10 years old. I went through a series of shots, which unfortunately was not helpful. I continued with these problems until recently. I began care with Dr. Fuller, and I can say now that I am 35 years old, I can breathe through my nose not affected by the seasonal changes as I once was. I am in the best health of my life. Thank you Dr. Fuller."
    - L.D.
  • "After having tried numerous medications for my migraine headaches, a friend of mine told me to go see Dr. Fuller. Dr. Fuller was able to isolate the cause of my migraines and then provide treatment that corrected the problem. I no longer have any migraine headaches. My overall health is much better. I enjoy the fact that I am able to exercise without pain or fear of inducing a headache. I strongly recommend Dr. Fuller not only for migraine headaches but neck pain or back pain as I have seen the benefit of other patients since coming to his office."
    -J. W.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
