Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Sorry to lose doctor Fox as my skin care doctor of the last 25 yrs, but he’s put his time in and I hope he enjoys life in retirement.

Dr Robert Fox is absolutely the BEST. His wise and compassionate, skillfull navigation of my skin condition has brought me back from the Abyss. With his imminent retirement on the horizon I will probably have to go into psychotherapy to deal with the terrible fact that Dr Fox will not be there to treat me any longer. That is how great a healer he is. Irreplaceable. There aren't enough gold stars to put above his name.

Dr. John Fox is a willing listener and a clear explainer. These qualities are important to me because I need to understand what’s going on. Dr. Fox has a kind, reassuring, and gentlemanly demeanor. He addresses every issue and solves it. I cannot imagine ever finding a better doctor, even though I have known several fine ones over the years. Wish I could give more than five stars.

I’ve gone to Dr. Fox since the ‘80’s. I’ve always been pleased & confident in his ability to spot any problems, treat as necessary & most importantly to listen to what I have concerns about. I have recommend Dr. Fox to friends & those that saw him felt the same as I do.
