Patient Testimonials

Dr. Patricia Fox is a genuinely caring and thorough doctor. She asks a lot of questions and listens to your answers to get a good profile of her patients and what their needs are. I was impressed that she remembered so much of my file without looking at it plus our conversations from last visits. I was also able to ask her about another injury I have and she quickly examined me, shared what she felt the source of pain is plus gave me a referral immediately to a Doctor in the clinic who specializes in this area. I love her personable care, her attention to the details of what I share with her and the very thorough exam and her explanation of my X-rays or tests.
