He is professional, thorough, patient, pleasant and always there when you need him
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
As your physician I bring a vital combination to this relationship – caring, dedication and cutting-edge medical knowledge. By creating and maintaining an ongoing long-term relationship with each one of my patients, my objective is to forge a bond that allows us to work together toward these goals: improving and maintaining your health and helping you achieve the best possible quality of life for as long as you live. I am also using telemedicine visits to stay connected with my patients when they are unable to see me in the office. It is easy to do, and we have maintained our momentum with preventive health goals and chronic care during difficult times.
I am gratified and humbled by the support of my current patients, and I look forward to continuing to serve you. To my future patients, I’m eager to meet with you, in person or virtually, to learn about your healthcare needs and how we can work together to meet them.
I have an interest in many areas of internal medicine including hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, managing stress, depression and anxiety. I also enjoy working with patients to guide them in healthy aging, helping to ensure their fitness and productivity throughout all the phases of their lives.

We have been patients of Dr. Bullock for a long time - probably more than 30 years. Throughout that time Dr. Bullock has treated us with the highest degree of professionalism, understanding, thoroughness and empathy. We look forward to many more years under his thoughtful guidance and care.

Our respect and appreciation of Dr. Bullock is an ongoing story. He LISTENS. He looks at you and not at his computer when you are with him. He thinks about your issue and frequently calls after you have been there to let you know about a new thought he has had concerning your concern. The particular personal story is relative to the fact that he is always there for you even one or both of you… See more
