What People Say About Dr. James Fox, MD

Dr. Fox has been a great advocate for me over the years! I have consulted him for knee, foot & shoulder injuries - many times he has advocated rehab vs. surgery. He has done 3 operations on my knees & each had very positive outcomes. He's my go-to guy for this should-just-retire athlete! Thanks, Doc! :)

Dr. Fox and the staff at IBJ were great - Professional and courteous at every step of the way for me and my broken ankle. This entailed about 5 office visits covering two locations. I recommend him highly.

His nurse Annette feels free to dispense medical advice and limit access to the doctor. She did this to me after neglecting to give me the doctor's after-visit written summary until 6 months after the initial visit. Because of her professional incompetence which compromises his care, I cannot recommend Dr Fox
