Dr John Fox was extremely knowledgeable. He was able to diagnose me immediately, knowing multiple different remedies to treat me. He was extremely personable, provided free samples of the recommended treatment, a coupon to get free co-payat the pharmacy, and was quick to treat me. Honestly one of the best doctors appointments i've been to. The office is clean, staff friendly, and waiting time minimal. I waited for like 5 minutes before getting seen, and once in the office, was helped by the staff and seen by the doctor immediately. Very happy. Highly recommend him.

Dr. Fox was not only super informative, he was very kind. When you're going in to have your skin treated, there is a lot of insecurity that comes along with that. Dr. Fox made me feel comfortable and understood, answering anyand all questions that I had. I will definitely be back to his visit for a follow-up appointment!

Dr. Fox had excellent bedside manner and immediately put me at ease. He was thorough and efficient with me exam. I also appreciate that he didn’t try to hawk any “dermatologist-recommended” products. My only complaint was with all of the suppprtstaff (receptionist & intake assistant). These employees had zero personality and were not very welcoming. Not a huge deal, just a little bizarre for a doctor’s office.

Dr. Fox was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional! I felt much more relaxed and hopeful about my skin after my appointment with him and can’t wait to revisit the office for my 10-week check up. I recently moved to the city, soI was a bit overwhelmed about finding a new doctor, but was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to come across Dr. Fox and his practice. Heard nothing but great things! He genuinely cares about his patients and does what he can to offer the most affordable options!

Dr. Fox was so nice and personable. I had never been to a dermatologist before this, but he made me feel very heard and comfortable. He goes into detail about what the concerns with your skin are and step by stephow to treat the skin. After the consultation, he prescribed some treatments and even helped me out with where I could get it the cheapest since I don't have insurance!

Parking was a cinch. I was immediately greeted upon entering. The office was clean and modern. I sat in the waiting room for less than 5 minutes. Theresa assisted in getting my medical history etc. She was pretty thorough. Dr. Foxwas energetic and enthusiastic. He was very personable. He spared no time getting to the issue. He took time to go through all of my questions and was very detailed in his explanations and how he was going to approach treatment. He gave me multiple options. He also gave me printed information on my skin condition. He made me feel at ease about the situation and free to contact the office if I had follow up questions. He called in two prescriptions and recommended going through Carepoint (a mail order pharmacy) because it's often cheaper. He was right, both of my scripts were free with my insurance!! He also made recommendations that were affordable products easily found at Walgreen's and CVS. Theresa hooked me up with a bunch of samples and coupons and I was on my way. I'm looking forward to my follow up appointment in a couple months. I'd highly recommend this office. It was easy to get an appointment and everything was great!

Dr. Fox has been amazing for the two appointments I've had with him! He was able to address my concerns quickly and find effective solutions for them. The office seems to have done their research as to which pharmacies offer themost accessible/affordable prescription options - I really appreciate this, as it's difficult for the patient to do this research in advance! Having been my first time seeing a dermatologist, I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

The office is also absolutely gorgeous!! State of the art and verymodern. Shilonda the assistant was awesome also, very understanding and intelligent. My only hope is that the front desk receptionist be a little nicer next time. Being the face of the practice, she could have seemed a little happier. First impressions are everything.

Professional, compassionate, understanding, and precise. I came in with a severe sunburn on my face. He wasted no time and got right to the point. I immediately had faith that he knew what he was doing. Despite how nervous I wasbecause of the look of my face(thanks to forgotten baby oil on a sunny day), he assured me he had seen this many times before and that it was extremely common. He knew exactly how to help speed along the healing process and ease the pain in the meantime.
