Dr. Fox is a kind and caring doctor, who loves his medical field, especially the surgical removal of cataracts. He did laser cataract removal and lens implants in both of my eyes over a two week period. Dr Fox made me feel so comfortable while he performed this procedure while by telling me about each step taken . I don't hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing this surgery.

Dr Fox is a highly skilled, professional, and caring doctor who has cared for my eyes for 30+ years. I have complete confidence in him and his staff in all aspects of the care I have received over the years, which included various surgical procedures in addition to the periodic testing and monitoring of my eye health.

Have been patient for over 15 years. Had Dr. Fox for my recent surgery. Wouldn't have anyone else. He also treated my mother. Would recommend him him highly.
in Beacon, NY |
Dr. Fox did my cataract surgery. It was painless and quick. The staff was very friendly and did a great job of alleviating my anxiety before the surgery. All questions were quickly answered and it ended up being a very good experience overall. Dr. Fox was easy to talk to and was very nice, too.

I am completely satisfied with Dr Fox..He is a very caring and compassionate doctor to speak with and be treated by. I have already recommended him to two others with the problem I had.
in Stuart, FL |
He was very unpleasant and short with my elderly aunt who is wheelchair bound. I was shocked at how disinterested and short-tempered he was. Will never go back
in Hartman, AR |
Dr. Fox was most attentive to all of my concerns. He is clearly an expert in his field. He patiently addressed each of my questions and left me confident to leave my eyes in his skilled hands. As a one-time teacher for visually impaired students I came to my surgeries with my own anxieties. However, Dr. Fox's compassion for his work, & his explanations of what I was to experience put me at ease. An exceptional man! A gifted surgeon! One should seek out his work. I am thankful for his care!
