I had both hips replaced by Dr. Fox. The first one was successful. The other hip still gives me lots of pain in the hip area but especially in my femur (thigh bone). The doctor said I would be 100%. I'm not even close to that. He has the worst bedside manner and is always in a bad mood. I would not go back to him.
Dr. Fox was the third doctor I had been referred to regarding my knee. Because I had been passed around, I was a bit nervous about my prognosis. During the consult, Dr. Fox was clear and concise in his explanation, and answered my questions in an honest and adult-to-adult manner. This was reassuring and made me feel confident I will have a good outcome if I do my part on rehab.
