We love Fullerton Ortho. Our entire family has received care & attention from past and present staff.

I was booked an appointment approx within the hour of calling and asking to be seen by a doctor or PA. I do not receive that attention through St Jude Heritage Family Practice, therefore I'm considering leaving them and looking for a general practitioner provider within this group. I'm impressed.
