What People Say About Dr. April Fox, MD

I was recommended to see April Fox for a skin tag. She said she was going to take a LOOL and that is all that she said to me. She took a look and said I was perfectly fine, but I could get it removed. I did not. I checked w/ my insurance and they confirmed the visit would be covered. April did not once explain she was doing an "anoscopy" on me. VERY MISLEADING and it resulted in a $400 charge. Someone as young as I am does not need this done on them. Very disappointed. I went for a skin tag!!

Dr. Fox is amazing. My 30 y o son has colorectal cancer and she is the surgeon. Dr. Fox is competent: she has his chart memorized and is able to discuss what is going on with us in detail. I feel my son is in such good hands. Her bedside manner and her concern are excellent. She said she chose this area of medicine b/c she can use robotics and save lives. That she has done for us. I am eternally grateful to her for her skills and compassion.

April Fox took over my medical care from top colon surgeon in Australia. She is excellent - friendly, fast, thorough, and professional. She was super careful. The colonoscopies I had done with her were very easy, and her anesthetist is VERY good. I would not hesitate to recommend her. She's everything you want an expert to be.

I was referred to Dr. April Fox by my sister, and indeed, she was wonderful. Thorough, informative, respectful. My baseline colonoscopy was far more comfortable than I anticipated. I will happily refer my friends to Dr. Fox.
