Patient reviews for Dr. David Fox
This was my first meeting with Dr. Fox. I found him to be friendly and thorough. He explained my tests results in a way I can understand and spoke of some possible treatments without rushing away.
Terrible operation. They rescheduled me to another date the first time around as the technician wasn't there to see me. Then waited 2.5 hours to have a PA look at me. Had to have a technician see me next in 40 mins after that but I had to leave because it looked like it was going to take another 3 hours for someone to see me. I mean if you are backed up at least let the patient know instead of making them wait forever.
I read in other reviews about the length of the wait to see the doctor. This was partially my case, but I don't think it can be used against this practice. The specialty they treat (veins) requires extensive testing, such as ultrasound. That on its own takes a long time. To gather your clinical history also takes a long time, and the PA did a great job. The ultrasound technician was fantastic. I found the service provided today to be top notch. Everyone in the office, from the receptionist to the PA, from the ultrasound technician to Dr. Fox himself to be very professional and highly recommended. Dr. Fox explained very clearly what was going on with my leg, and offered options. Overall I felt very well taken care. Thank you.
Took over 45 minutes to see the doctor, even with very early morning appointment. Had to fill out a lot of repetitive paperwork and answer numerous questions in paper work, only to re-answer some of the same questions to a PA, then finally saw the doctor for a few minutes. While personable, and no doubt repetitive for him, it felt like he was going through a script during his “exam”.
All of the staff were friendly and personable. It was a great experience.
Staff was friendly. Only time I waited longest was for ultrasound. dr fox was very pleasant and knowledgeable in explaining diagnosis
I can understand being a little behind schedule but the fact I sat over an hour in the waiting room and then an additional 25 mins in the examination room before I had even seen a nurse. I would have appreciated a little communication by the receptionist team versus being aggressive/dismissive when I challenge the fact I wasted an entire morning just WAITING! Their response was "we inform patients to be prepared to be here for an hour"-that fine if I was in and out within and hour-I waited for an hour and a half before I saw a nurse-the whole ordeal took over 3 hours for a routine diagnosis.
Excellent vein Doctor. Diagnosed my problem and sent me to the proper doctors to deal with my issues. I highly recommend Dr. Fox. The staff treated me very nice and made me fee comfortable. A good experience
Dr. Fox was good as was his staff. No reason for the 45 minute wait though.
The whole staff are very professional and they treat like family
Dr. Fox is excellent and I love all the office staff - they go above and beyond to make you comfortable. I have had painful veins that Dr. Fox got rid of in two separate surgeries. My husband and I were truly impressed with the results! My left leg is about 80% improved and my right one about 90%. This is the first summer since I had kids that I am happy to wear shorts! Phenomenal results. I hope that it lasts - it is never guaranteed, since the body makes new veins over time, but I will always consult Dr. Fox with confidence. The office is state of the art and the anesthesiologists were great too. No complications for me, only fantastic results.
Really great staff all very welcoming and accommodating. Was nervous about going in for appointment but the doctor & staff explained everything thoroughly and made me feel at ease for procedure I will need on varicose veins (was told the dr does about 15 of these procedures a week!). Easy to book appointment and was seen quickly.
very thorough, great staff, attentive and responsive
He is excellent!
Dr Fox is very good in what he does, I do recommend his services to anyone like me with hereditary vein problems.
