Dr. Fox made this old gal feel comfortable with her caring & attentive ways. So much so I had my procedure. She is professional but easy to talk to, listens and answers questions. And Jenny in the front office is always helpful and very friendly. The hospital staff also was on point during this time of Covid 19. Big thanks to all!

On 7/24/2020, I was admitted to the hospital with acute appendicitis. I was told my surgeon would be Dr. Lindsay Fox, who I did not know; as such, I started asking questions. Everyone I spoke with had positive things to say about Dr. Fox and it was abundantly clear she was respected and well liked by hospital staff. Upon meeting Dr. Fox I understood why she was held in such high regard. Dr. Fox was pleasant, relatable, and she had an easy confidence about her that was reassuring. She had a quick smile and a good sense of humor too. She explained things clearly and in understandable terms and she answered all of my questions. I felt heard, understood, and valued. My appendectomy went well and my recovery has gone smoothly. I attribute my positive outcome to Dr. Fox's experience and skill as a surgeon. I've had many surgeries and interacted with a lot surgeons in my life and Dr. Fox is right up there with the best. She has earned my respect.
