Dr. Fox is a great doctors.I followed Dr Fox from his old practice. I drive from Chicago just so I could stay with Dr Fox. Dr has always professional and polite. I've always felt comfortable being able to talk to him even if it was a sensitive subject. It seems as if nothing fazes him Which makes me feel comfortable and able to talk to him about anything concerning my health.
