For a year my primary care doctor kept telling me I only had bursitis in left shoulder and prescribed steroid injections. I finally went to Dr Fox on my own after extensive research into his medical background and all the great reviews of former patients. After an MRI I had surgery last Friday to reattach my bicep tendon and remove 2 bone spurs. Dr Fox was amazing throughout the entire process; he clearly explained what he would do in the OR, then after the surgery explained to my husband what was actually done, then came and answered all my post-op questions while I was in recovery. His office staff is very efficient - from his PA-C John, Kristen who does scheduling and the rest of the staff. I will need a knee replacement next year and won't consider going anywhere else.

Dr. Fox is number 1 in my book. My right shoulder was a disaster and I was unable to do much with it. Dr Fox ordered X-Rays and an MRI and informed me that I would need a total replacement of the shoulder. He had to do a reverse replacement (changing positions of the cup and the ball). The operation was a total success and in less than two months I have full mobility of the shouder and no pain.

I required total left knee joint replacement a few months ago. Dr. Fox was just outstanding to work with. He and his team were so helpful to me, providing education and much needed support during my surgery and recovery. I am happy to say my knee and I are doing very well. I have to have my right knee done in future as well and know that with Dr. Fox we will be in good hands. I cannot thank him and his staff enough! If anyone is needing orthopedic work, highly recommend Dr. Fox.

I had a total left knee replacement done by Doctor Fox November of 2017 and shortly after surgery it started popping grinding and was unstable and to this day it still does that. and when I asked him about it at several visits he told me that was the best it was going to get and I would have to live with it. I cannot go up and down stairs or walk very well and uneven pavement cuz my knee buckles out from under me and I cannot totally straighten it out which makes it very difficult to walk.

Their caring and specialized work is so VERY much appreciated! From billing to MA's to Front Desk & management, to Jason & Dr. Fox (and the entire staff), other Doctors, etc.), THANK YOU for representing the best that is available! Note that when we recently found mid-day on a Friday that my wife had a broken tibia causing her severe pain, they pulled together quickly to read the MRI (after hours!), acquire a much-needed brace with consultant for proper usage, and set-up for the weekend before

The office manage is the most rude person on the planet, I called to request a refund as I saw a PA for 4 mins and learned nothing new and was told he would talk to the Dr for me. Upon receiving the call from the office manager she talked for the length of the call and any time I'd open my mouth, I was being "rude" and "slanderous" she then stated that i would've meet the Dr for free had i not been rude, another thing her perfect staff failed to mention. I would see anyone, anywhere else.

I can't say enough about Dr Fox! Totally professional, skilled. My results (2 total hip replacements within 4 month) and I'm walking better than I have in 5 years. Two weeks after the 2nd surgery, I am walking totally unaided, and I require nothing more than Aleve for any discomfort from overdoing it. HE'S THE BEST
