Dr. Fox does surgery only after all non-surgical methods have been used and exhausted. He performed a total knee replacement in February 2017 & at 5 months after I am pleased I had the surgery performed. Dr. Fox is straightforward and explains all procedures thoroughly. He is compassionate and only wants the best result for his patients.

This Dr is by far the biggest egotistical and unfriendly physician I've ever come across...I will never feel comfortable going under his knife. He treats his staff like lower class citizens and only cares about the "Bottom Dollar" No Thank You!! I'll find a different doctor.

Dr Fox has done a total knee replacement and a total hip replacement on me within the last twelve months. I trust Dr Fox and his staff with my life. They are spectacular in EVERY way.
in San Antonio, Tx |
I took my Mother to talk about hip replacement. They required that she have more X-rays even though she had X-rays in hand from 2 weeks prior. He was pretty aggressive, in-your-face, my way or the hwy type. I didn't get talk or ask questions. I'm sure he's a good surgeon, but I just need better rapport.

He is very straight forward. The problem I had was with my MRI in hand and an xray done in his office (both with showed my knee basically bone on bone and floating cartilage from prev damage and torn meniscus. I rec. 8 weeks of viscosupplementation They did not work for me. I also have kidney problems. He told me on my last visit that he could not help me but if I needed help call him. I have sense found out that surg with kidney fail is done all the time (pain for addit. year). Got new dr

He is not interested in my thoughts. Told me to stop talking because he felt i was a talker. His perception of my thoughts/me was incorrect. I did not get to ask what concerned me. I would ask or start to ask a question and would be shut down.

Dr. Fox and his entire team operate as a well oiled machine. I was in the hospital, had my surgery, and was out of the hospital within 48 hours. I had an epidural and surgery was virtually pain free. I am six weeks out of surgery and still doing pt 3 times a week. I will see Dr. Fox this Friday and I am hopeful he will grant me a full pardon. That is not to say that I am fully recovered. At age 70, But I know every day moving forward will find me stronger and stronger!

I called on Tuesday (3/15/16) to make an ASAP appointment, and I was scheduled on Thursday (3/17/16). The clinic was super busy; however, the staff provided a wheel chair to my husband in order to get me from the car to the clinic, I had x-rays, I was seen by Dr. Fox, then I visited by Melba to explain medications, getting fitted for a brace and crutches, and I got fitted all in approximately 40 minutes. Dr. Fox and staff are fantastic!
