Takes time to explain everything in both medical and general terms. Even draws a diagram if he senses a lack of understanding. Feel he is very honest because he tells the good and the bad. Everything is followed up - and quickly - which is very reassuring.
Dr Fox has an excellent reputation which inspired my confidence in his ability to carry out the procedure. At all times he had a professional approach and emphasized with me. Dr Fox answered any questions I had clearly and was reassuring.I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
Dr Fox fully explained the procedure and risks involved prior to the ablation. During the procedure Dr Fox ensured that I was as comfortable as possible under the circumstances and together with the theatre staff ensured that I felt no discomfort. Once in recovery, I was having discomfort in my chest area, the nursing staff mentioned this to Dr Fox who came to see me and assured me that the discomfort would subside in around an hours time. He was right, but also it was the first time that any one has actually come to see me after a procedure. This shows what a caring, thoughtful person he is. Dr Fox is a straight talking person, he will listen to your questions and advise you on any queries or worries you have. I would not hesitate in recommending Dr Fox to anyone who had been referred to him for treatment.
Dr. Fox makes you feel completely at ease during your consultation and also makes sure you have understood every aspect of your treatment. He has a great personality and I would recommend him unreservedly.
