Dr. Fox is a genius!! He is beyond a doubt the best Physician that I have ever had........and the most knowledgeable and most thorough!! I wish we could clone him. We have moved 6 hours away fro LaJolla, but, he does telephone consults when I can’t get there.

Dr. Fox saved my life and my daughter’s life . As an RN for 34 years, Dr. Fox is by far the best diagnostician I have ever encountered. He is kind , caring , brilliant and will diagnose your medical illness when others cannot . I am grateful for everything he has done to help us. I highly recommend Dr. Fox to anyone in need of expert medical care. Anne V., RN

Dr. Fox has been my doctor for over 30 years. I love him. Hes very thorough, answers all my questions, takes time to answer questions even by text. When I moved to Iowa, he took care of me through my familu physician. I was there for 8 years and he never failed me. I live back in Ca now so I see him every 6 months. He's a very special guy, and wonderful doctor!

He has kept my wife and me alive for many years beyond expectations given by other doctors. Patients like us travel from all over the U.S. and other countries to seek his help.
