What People Say About Dr. Ira Fox, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
After 1 visit he was accusing me of taking other drugs, which he actually writes the prescription for. He also accused me of drinking. Neither my wife or I drink. I do not drink. Then he accused me of selling my prescriptions. He did all this in front of a group of students from Nova Southeastern. I used to work for a SC PD as a narcotics agent. I still keep a TS security clearance from working in the intelligence community. I have talked to an attorney about suing him for slander.

Dr. Fox is amazing! When I first came to see him I could barely move. After getting the recommended treatment, I have never felt better.
