Absecon, NJ |
I was disappointed in his overall demeanor and sense of urgency (upon his entering the room) to get on with his next appointment. Dr. Fox cut me off, mid sentence, as I began telling him what my daughter's situation was (and I am NOT an extensive talker by any means). After rudely interrupting me and informing me of exactly what he wanted to hear/know, I informed him that that information was exactly what I was about to share with him had he not interrupted me.

He was so wonderful. My appointment was scheduled for 8:30 and by 8:30 I was already in the back, xrays taken. the office staff was so friendly and caring. The doctor was very informative about my issues and he was quick to come up with the fix. He knew what he was talking about and was able to give me tips as well. After the appointment, unlike most doctors, he told me I don't have to come back to tell him I am doing well. Only come back if I was still having an issue! I highly recommend him!
