wish he would have given other options that could have been done instead going straight to most extreme. Did not tell me that this procedure only works about 25% of the time. If I had known this I most likely would have explored other options

His intelligence was obvious, he made you feel he had no other appointments, and he communicated clearly. i liked him instantly, especially since he agreed to see me with one days notice - I live in Florida and had a limited window for the appointment.

Dr. Fox is very caring and professional. I was somewhat apprehensive about consulting a surgeon regarding my back pain and wanted to review the actual images of a recent MRI for a more detailed assessment than the brief written report provided by the diagnostic physician. He pulled up my images on his laptop and walked through several cross sections to point out those items that were referenced in the written report. He went further and assessed many other items of interest and took a good amount of time to discuss my concerns and gave his opinions. He was very candid and suggested that, based on his readings, surgery was not necessary and recommended physical therapy. I was relieved and very appreciative of his support in providing a focused therapy plan based on the MRI results.

Dr. Fox listens & hears what you are saying. He devotes all the time you need to explain what tests results mean and what options are available. He is considerate and he has a very calm demeanor. I have great respect and faith in Dr. Fox. I have returned to him and trust his diagnosis. I would recommend him!

Dr. Fox is one of the best Dr.'s I have dealt with. He tells you what is going to happen during surgery keeping you informed through the entire process and does it in such a way you feel like he is a friend talking to you, not a Dr. talking down to you.

Visit date had to be changed because of the doctor's surgery schedule. It was a short appointment but my concern was answered fully and I believe correctly. If I have any more difficulty with my back I will certainly return to see Dr. Fox. Hard to answer a survey when it was one appointment, fairly short but on target.
