I have suffered from eczema for more than 8 years -- through key and crucial aspects of development, too. Dr. Fox was the only dermatologist I have ever had across multiple major US cities who took a genuine interest in myproblems, arranged sensible and effective regiments and solutions, and gave everything to me honest and straight. He is quick and sharp as a tack; his extensive training really shows.

Office staff is super friendly and prompt, the interior design is a nice break from the usual cold medical offices. Dr. Fox has an instantaneous friendly attitude and is great at exampling skin conditions and care. I went in for anannual screening but I also asked about my acne (since I was there). He took the time to sit down (actually sit down!) and talk to me about my concerns and a treatment plan in a super helpful way. I’ve never had such a great experience at a dermatologist and had a doctor that truly listened and wanted to help my condition.

I live in Tinley Park and gladly come out to the North side to visit Dr. Fox! He moved his practice North this year. He is such a great guy who really conveys a sense of genuine care about his people.My older father had a skin issue and I told my 83 year old dad he would really like Dr.Fox. My dad spoke very highly of him so I know he is great with older people as well. Probably one of the kindest, smartest people I have ever had to deal with in the medical field. He is definitely worth a try!
