Dr. Fox is dishonest and manipulative. I was recommended to him through my general physician who I had great experiences with, making me MUCH too quick to trust their recommendation without further research. I was told going into my procedure that I would need to pay $500 dollars and that would cover it. Upon arrival to my procedure and clarifying that I had already paid what I needed to. Dr. Fox took it upon himself to run many more wildly expensive tests and leave me without a diagnosis. I had bills from other hospitals tracing back to that visit claiming that he sent test over. I went from thinking I was paying $500 dollars to paying THOUSANDS of dollars. I rarely write negative reviews but would really love to do my part in making sure this does not happen to anyone else. He appears kind but do not be deceived. After this happened to me I researched and found that he has done this too many others as well.

Dr. Fox listened carefully to my issues and concerns. He provided me with his recommendation and his reasons for it. Dr. Fox was most concerned about my well being, and he did advise me that health decisions were, in fact, mine to make. I truly appreciated his candor.

Dr. Fox is one of the best doctors that my husband and I have ever seen. He makes us feel comfortable from the moment he enters the room, and he takes time to listen to us. When we are in need of a recommendation for a doctor in any other specialty, we ask Dr. Fox for his suggestion. We really trust him.

Having been plagued with 'a bad stomach' since childhood, I had 50 years of gastroenterology behind me when I found Dr. Fox. He was the first doctor to really listen when I told him my symptoms and to consider alternate explanations for everything I was experiencing. If you're looking for a doctor who is kind, compassionate, and endlessly patient with mystery symptoms - Dr. Fox is your answer.

Dr. Fox made me feel comfortable with an unfamiliar situation in my health. I am usually 100%, but I found myself weakened recently and he made the issue sound like small things to a giant. The procedure was quick and painless. His confidence is greatly-appreciated. I am glad that he was recommended to me and I plan on putting his name in the mix whenever I get a chance. I will also return if I ever need to.

Dr. Fox is my favorite doctor. He is always so friendly, he ask about my daughter every time he sees me and if I have any issues he makes sure that he tries to find a solution. I feel like he actually listens to me and is not just going through the motions. He is a great doctor and an even better person.

DR. Fox and his entire staff are extraordinarily professional, caring, knowledgeable, and responsive, and they took excellent care of me before, during, and after an upper endoscopy and colonoscopy. I was well-prepared before the procedures, and Dr. Fox was readily available to answer questions after the procedure. Dr. Fox was very timely and professional in providing test results. He was incredibly considerate of me as I traveled far from another state. He and his entire team are oustanding!

Dr. Fox is an amazing physician. I did not have to wait long to be called back and he was very thorough. This is the 3rd time I have been to this office, but my first time seeing him and I definitely will have him continue my care. Super friendly and took time to figure out my history of my present situation.

I have been a patient of Dr. Fox for many years and I grade him to be the most patient, and educated at what he does. Dr. Fox is very concerned about his patients. He was the only doctor that took a chance and recommended further testing on me when others wouldn't and found evidence that something was wrong. Thank you Dr. Fox for being a great asset to our community.
