This was just a follow up from a hospital visit. I was told I needed to follow up with a neurologist, so of course I was concerned. When Dr Fox told me it was minor and nothing to worry about my mind was at ease. He didn't give me the run around and didn't waste my time.. Just to the point, and I was in and out quickly. Thank you
