On August 5, 2019 Dr. Fox replaced my left hip. He replaced the right hip Nov. 6, 2019. Dr. Fox is a miracle worker. He explains everything. He's next to God. All was done at St. Mary's. Excellent.

Dr. Fox is an amazing orthopedic and would highly recommend him. He rebuilt my ankle after a car accident and 20 years later it still is going strong. Several months ago he did a hip replacement and again top care both in surgery and post surgery. He is professional and answers all questions. He keeps small talk at a minimum which is great.

Painful knee, saw Dr. FOX to see if he could help. PREVIOUS Ortho had'nt alleviated my pain and said the only soultion was a total knee repacement. Dr. Fox's care included his direct involvement in the X-ray room, diagnosis, and then giving me a cortisone injection. He positioned my knee and location of injection diffently than my previous Dr. Like a miracle, next am pain was 100% gone.4 weeks later still no pain after lots of walking and stair climbing. Also dignosed NO Total only PARTIAL!

Dr. Fox has performed hip and knee replacement surgery for me and my results have been excellent. I was always able to get a timely appointment when I needed a cortisone shot in the years leading up to my knee surgery. He listened and provided solutions to my specific concerns which instilled a sense of confidence and trust. I had a problem with pain medications and Dr. Fox was able address pain without the medications that made me feel terrible. I had good results because I had a good surgeon

Dr. Fox replaced both of my hips this year. My results were excellent. A few weeks past the 2nd surgery, I walk without a cane. He respected my wishes regarding certain aspects of the surgery, length of hospital stay and timing of the 2nd surgery. He was available and answered all of my questions patiently and completely. When I asked around, everyone knew him and was pleased with their results. I deeply appreciate his expertise, skill, kindness and respect.

I recently had a knee replacement by Dr. Fox. I recovered very quickly from my surgery. Doctor Fox came each day to hospital to check on me, which is very nice vs a hospital doctor. My pain was minimal and managed very well. If I called office with question nurse Pat called back within 10 minutes and was very helpful.

Very professional and capable. Not much for small talk which is good. But takes time to answer questions and responds fully. I highly recommend Dr. Fox. He diagnosed my tendinitis and gave me a shot of cortisone. Pain is almost gone.

I think Dr. Fox is a wonderful orthopedic surgeon. I have been a patient of his since Oct, 2011. He has done knee replacement for me and the outcome has been wonderful I highly recommend him to anyone who is having knee, hip or shoulder pain. He has given me cortisone shots and the pain relief I have received has been incredible. I can't believe how skilled he is at administering injections.
