April Fox was thorough and professional. The colonoscopy I had was low stress, the staff was great and the anesthesiologist was excellent. I liked her a lot. She answered all my questions, didn't seem to be in a hurry and the procedure went exactly as she said it would. I have to go back every three years so we will be seeing one another regularly.

Dr Fox is an excellent surgeon and physician. She accepted my wife in transfer from another hospital and immediately took over her care. She attempted to treat her conservatively but after everything failed took to her to surgery. Her postop care has been outstanding. She is a caring highly skilled physician, has kept us informed every step of the way and I highly recommend her. As a physician and a husband I’m glad she is taking care of my wife.

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.
