With a wealth of knowledge spanning 4 decades, There’s literally nothing he hasn’t seen on skin before. A multi system approach, so that the individual is treated, not just the condition. An inherent ability to connect your skin to your whole person without separating it as a foreign entity and understanding the intricacies of your health and how it plays out on your skin, enables Dr. Fox to get to the root of the problem, instead of just treating the surface. If you are part of the auto immune population and need the right dermatologist he will find the best approach for your condition as well as the right diagnosis!

The worst Dr. experience ever. I arrived on time as I always do for any Doctor appointment. Waited hrs in waiting room. Finally was brought into an exam room where another hour went by. Asked to use restroom when someone was in hall. En-route to restroom saw Dr. Fox and a few other Docs in the practice sitting around shooting the breeze in an office while throwing a ball around. Some had feet up on desk. No concern for patients waiting. Arrogant, immature and totally unprofessional. The Dr who finally came in to see me wasn’t even Dr. Fox. Never went back and would advise others to steer clear.

Dr. Fox is the type of doctor I wish all my doctors were like! His genuine caring nature and obvious desire to help made me feel at ease while having my procedure done! After treatment, my scar which I was extremely self conscious had vanished completely. My friends and family were in awe of the "new" me!

My teenage daughter felt uncomfortable with him! He didn’t really say anything useful we told him my daughter didn’t do well with benzoyl peroxide and he went ahead and prescribed it! Didn’t tell us anything about the meds he prescribed either!

Dr. Fox has been our family Dermatologist for a few years now, My son and I decided to remove some moles in our face and in other areas of our body. I always thought that it was a procedure only done by Plastic Surgeons and therefore it would be very expensive so we put it off for many years. Dr. Fox removed three moles I had in my face and he is also removing my sons. I am happy to say that it was a very simple, fast, painless and inexpensive procedure. Thank you Dr. Fox.

This was my first visit to Dr Fox whereas my husband has been a regular patient. He has always raved about the doctor, and I must say his positive compliments were certainly well warranted.

I had a confirmed appointment with Dr. Fox and was requested to come in earlier in order to fill out the new patient paperwork. later I received an automotated call to remind me of my appointment. On the day of my appointment I arrived a 1/2 hour earlier as requested and was infomed that the Doctor was running behind. He had 8 scheduled patients ahead of me. I refused to wait to see him. He has no respect or consideration for his patients and must have forgotton the Hippocratic Oath

Dr. Fox is the best dermatologist in New York. Period. I have been a patient since 1997 and have had many procedures done by this extremely skilled physician. My mother and my sister have also been patients. The results of the procedures performed by Dr. Fox have always exceeded our expectations. We have recommended Dr. Fox to many friends, who have been very pleased with his outstanding work. We are so grateful to have found this incredibly talented doctor. What a gift to New York!
