in Vilas, NC |
Very personable yet professional. He is experienced and knowledgeable of cardiac diagnoses and explains complex matters in an easy understandable manner. Highly recommended. Staff very supportive.
in Newton, NC |
I was in the Frye Regional Medical Center with heart failure. Dr Fox was going to discharge me, I still feeling all that great so I asked for a second opinion. I was transferred to Duke University Hospital, when I arrived at Duke University my blood results showed that I had a heart attack upon arriving from Frye Regional Medical Center. Dr Fox stating in his discharged reports that nothing was wrong with me before I was transferred to Duke University Hospital. I don't think that I got the care.
