I have had several foot injuries over the years and Dr. Fox has helped me through them. I keep going back to him because he's kind, caring & knowledgeable. His assistant Sandra is the same way. As long as I have feet, and they have issues, I'll be going back to Dr. Fox.

Patricia Strickler – Apr 30, 2021
I am being billed by Southwest Regional PCR, LLC for specimens sent by Dr. Fox Podiatry office on two different occasions. I am being billed because the Southwest Regional PCR lab is out-network with my insurance. My insurance company informed that if Dr. Fox Podiatry office sent the specimen to an in-network lab, I wouldn’t have any out of pocket expense. Do not visit Dr. Fox Podiatry unless you don’t mind receiving an outrageous out of pocket expense since Dr. Fox Podiatry.

I can not express how much I love this office. First and foremost I was frantic when I called them due to pain in my toe. Sandra the head front staff calmed me by informing me of their office hours completely trying to work around my schedule which I loved. When I arrived I was greeted so warmly by Vanessa and even got to meet Sandra lovely self in person. But Dr Fox is truly the creme of the crop!! He was genuinely a warm hearted doctor and kept me abreast of what was happening

Dr Fox is one of the kindest individuals you will ever meet and an amazing doctor! From the moment you enter his practice you are greeted by his wonder desk/tech named Sandra who is always cheerful and can't do enough to help you. I've never waited more then five minutes for my scheduled appointment which is always a plus and I was so impressed with Dr Fox's treatment of my neuroma's without talking injections/surgery. He utilize a laser and almost two years later I'm still pain free. Thank U

New to the area so we aren’t familiar with doctors here. However, I met Dr. Fox in store and was very impressed. I was able to schedule an appointment for my son online the same day. Very fast response time. Staff are excellent and go the extra mile to help all patients. Great communication and good with children.

Excellent customer service and as a physician I can say that Dr. Fox is extremely professional and experienced. I've been to many physicians for my ankle pain from local clinics to even large institutions like Hopkins and no one could diagnose my problem. Dr Fox diagnosed me at hello

I came to Dr. Fox with significant pain in my left heel and calf. This was my first visit to Dr. Fox's office and I was immediately impressed by the warm greeting I received from Sandra and Vanessa upon my arrival, They guided me through the paperwork and what my visit would entail. I was actually seen at the time of my scheduled appointment! Dr. Fox took time with me to review my x-rays and possible courses of treatment, I would highly recommend Dr. Fox and in fact already have!

This is my first visit with Dr. Bruce Fox for my swelling/infected feet. So happy to find him thru Google on line search for a good podiatrist. He has great reviews (almost 5 stars) and I was not disappointed at all. He's THE BEST! I highly recommend him! As soon as you walked into his office, Sandra, the office manager, and Vanessa, Dr. Fox's assistant, will greet you and attend to you so kindly with great smiles. They explain fully what you need to know about your visit.

From my reception into the office with Sandra, to my ingrown toenail diagnosis and procedure time, my visit to the podiatrist was quick, easy, and informative. I felt like I was their only patients, receiving the utmost care, even when there were several others patients in the office. I wouldn't recommend any other office except for Dr. Fox Podiatry!

I've been having bad ankle pain and horrible shin splints at just the slightest movement. I tried the night splint that Dr. Fox gave me and i was able to easily use it and after just a month I can happily get to an 8 on the treadmill without a single bit of pain! The receptionist (and pardon me because i forgot her name) is the sweetest woman on the planet too! So happy i came here!!

Dr. Fox and the whole staff/operation is very professional, clean, and friendly. He listens to all of the concerns and makes sure you feel as comfortable as possible. I have often called and gotten an appointment scheduled for that day, for a non-emergency, which makes treatment that much faster and the ease of seeing a doctor that much more enjoyable

Great office with wonderful staff! Dr. Fox and his staff are very personable. My diagnosis required several visits and the staff and Dr. Fox treated me with the same care each visit. The staff was friendly. Dr. Fox was clear and thorough in his explanation and treatment. I always knew my progress and outlook when leaving the office. From first visit to last a great experience.
