Meet the Doctor
I found myself at a point in my life where I no longer found it helpful to mask my symptoms of illness with medication. I wanted to find the ultimate cause of my high cholesterol and triglycerides and tackle the problem head-on, but I did not know how. From Dr. Fasullo I learned about proper diet in a way I never, ever learned from my medical doctor. The only thing my MD was interested in was treating me with prescription pills such as Lipitor and Crestor. I had very bad reactions to both and my MD actually seemed to get mad at me for being unwilling to take them regardless of how horrible they made me feel. Her way of healing was superficial because it did not address the actual cause. To me, this was like covering a hole in the wall with a picture. You couldn’t see the hole, but it was still there none-the-less. I am not exaggerating when I say that every time I left my MD’s office, I felt depressed, unheard, and a bit hopeless. It was these feelings that put me in search of a Dr. Fasullo.
Through Dr. Fasullo I learned about inflammation of the body and that it could be caused by some of the foods I was eating. Through a food intolerance test I learned what those foods were. I am now so much more educated about how important eating healthy is.
It is amazing, now in hindsight, what foods I used to consider healthy! Over time I have eliminated one bad food after another from my diet and as a result my cholesterol and triglycerides have gone down – all without prescription pills! Dr. Fasullo is very patient and takes time to inform, teach and answer my questions about diet and the lifestyle changes I need to make. His demeanor is so refreshing and exactly what I need to feel better, not only physically, but emotionally. He never, ever pressured me or made me feel inferior. He is a patient doctor who truly, truly cares about health and healing. In the end he has given me the tools I need to take charge of my own health! I will be forever thankful.
I have had a chronic illness for 24 years and during this time I’ve seen many doctors, including those for my children. Over the years I’ve developed a distaste and distrust for physicians. Not personally, but in how they’ve been taught to treat symptoms and never search for the underlying cause of the illness.
Earlier this year one of my daughters suggested that I see Dr. Fasullo. I agreed though I thought it was going to just be another doctor visit to endure. I was pleasantly surprised not only by his thoroughness but that he truly listens and desires to find the root cause of the problem. He is not content to treat the symptoms alone and is very knowledgeable with natural cures.
All that is good and very important but one of his most refreshing qualities is his compassion and true concern. I cannot tell you how many times he has called me to check on me over the past months. He even came to visit me in the hospital when I had emergency surgery. He did this, unasked, after his work day and even brought me some tinctures to help me upon my release. I have never had a doctor show so much concern and for these reasons (and more) I can highly recommend him.
Because I have been on so many meds and still have pain, I tried naturopathic healing. It made a difference in how I feel. I tried acupuncture treatments for specific pain related to previous brain surgery and this has resulted in less pain as well. It is nice to know there are other options besides taking more drugs.
My wife has suffered from numerous ailments over the past 6 years. Several are so painful the only answer medical doctors had was to give more pills for pain, some very addictive. Since going to Dr. Fasullo she has had less pain with no addictive drugs. She has not had enough energy to do the daily work required on our farm and now with his help she is able to do the daily chores that had been non-existent for the last six years.
I had high cholesterol and high triglycerides for most of my life, despite being mindful of my diet. Dr. Fasullo was the first doctor to take the time to get to know my eating and activity habits first before running any tests. After a thorough interview and physical examination, he recommended a customized dietary plan with the support of herbal supplements. For the first time in my life, my blood levels are normal and I lost a bit of weight too!
From the moment we walked in the door, it felt like coming home in the best possible way. Dr. Craig is so friendly and easy going, my daughters feel completely at ease with him in a way that they have never been with previous doctors. The level of care and attentiveness we have received has far exceeded my expectations, and the wholehearted devotion of their practice towards healing has been evident in our every encounter. Having seen many physicians of many types, I can’t say enough how remarkable Dr. Fasullo is, and how grateful we are for his services.
I found Dr. Fasullo after a long and painful saga in the conventional medical system that resulted in an unnecessary invasive treatment. My first appointment with Dr. Fasullo lasted over two hours, during which we worked together to understand my problem in the context of my entire body, my lifestyle, and my emotional wellbeing. In consultation with my conventional doctor, we chose a course of treatment that combined conventional and alternative therapies, with wonderful results. My problem has disappeared, and I have been empowered to become an active participant in my own healing. Dr. Fasullo is a true gem.
