About Dr. Fullington
Dr. Douglas Fullington has practiced internal medicine for more than a decade and has a passion for teaching his patients how to maximize their health by optimizing their lifestyle. He believes it is far more effective to prevent disease than to treat it.

He moved to Texas in 2009 to practice as a hospitalist before returning to primary care in 2013, when he joined Village Health Partners.
Dr. Fullington reminds his patients that the fundamentals for good health are healthy nutrition, exercise and adequate sleep. He believes that everything in life gets better when you feel vibrant and healthy, and that an investment in your health pays big dividends in every aspect of your life.
