I think my Appt went ok. I hope Dr. Bullock really listened and is focused on helping me become healthy. Hopefully the treatment plan he has me on works and hopefully the test he done gives a result rather than a vacancy.

Dr. Bullock was very nice and listened to my issue. Problem was I was in severe stomach pain and Dr. Bullock refused to give me any pain medication. He did give me something to coat my stomach, but it did nothelp the pain. Even when we called and told him the medicine was not working for pain he still refused to give me anything for pain and I had to go to the ER to get pain treatment. Can not recommend him because of this issue.
