I very rarely see a doctor multiple times because I always seem to have a personality conflict (usually my fault), however Dr Fox is fantastic! His office staff is very friendly and accommodating; Dr Fox comes into the room in amatter of minutes and is always personable. He has helped my condition greatly and always asks and listens to my feedback before concluding or prescribing anything. Have been back a few times and he is now my permanent dermatologist.

I felt as though I was rushed through my appointment. He barely looked at the issues I pointed out to him but quickly prescribed medication. I asked if there was anything that could be done about my scarring and he gaveme a snide chuckle before saying there is nothing that can be done about that. I will not be returning; I thought I would give this Dr. a try because he is closer to where I reside now, but I would much rather take the hour trip to a dermatologist I had been visiting previously.

Pleasant visit. Dr Fox has a calm demeanor and appeared to be concerned about my health. I'm not much for small talk so I appreciate that he gets right down to business. Had me out of there fast and with abetter understanding of what was going on. I would happily return to Dr Fox if the need arises.

Yes, I would see this doctor again. He seemed fair, and not looking to over-complicate anything, more than it needs to be. He patiently listened to the background of my issue and had a very nice cordial demeanor. His staff membersup front were very nice, and efficient in their service.

My initial visit was very satisfactory. Dr. Fox answered my questions satisfactorily. Unfortunately the follow up to my visit was totally unsatisfactory. I was assured that I would receive a call within 3 days regarding the results of a biopsy.I did not receive a call as promised. I called several times and never was able to speak with Dr. Fox. I finally got a call from his receptionist several days later and she gave me my biopsy results. I will not return to this office.

Dr Fox was very nice and professional. He was recommended to me by my primary doctor. When my son's acme got out of control, he was the first choice for me.

It's been a while since my appointment but finally wanted to leave feedback and say... Absolutely terrible experience that left me physically scarred from biopsies I did not need. Very delayed treatment for a very simple problem. Actually,I diagnosed myself at the first visit. However he said I was incorrect. He led me to believe I had some form of autoimmune disease, possibly lupus which was also an unpleasant process to go through. When the diagnosis was finally made many weeks later, I couldn't even get the doctor to give me the prescription in what I would consider a timely manner for the medication to treat the problem which had obviously spread because it was not initially treated properly. I would NEVER recommend this doctor to anyone!

The staff was very professional. Dr. Fox was professional and courteous. The only suggestion I have is that when the office calls to confirm the appointment, they share the forms of payment they accept. Or list it on the website. Idon't recall seeing it there. Otherwise overall great experience.

The office staff was very nice. I only had to wait a few minutes to be seen. While the doctor's professional bedside manner was fine, he seemed kind of cold, and unfriendly. If you like a doctor who seems to havean interest in you as a person, this is not the doc for you. On the other hand, if you just want to be treated, and be on your way he may be perfect. This is not a comment on his abilities, just a heads about his manner.
