Specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Doctor Foox showed me that he is completely unconcerned with his patients and their care! He is also a complete jerk!

Will not be going back

I've never written a bad review about a Dr. before. Though I'm sure he is a nice fellow, Dr. Foox did not perform a simple Urinalysis per my request. My urine was cloudy and smelly but I had no pain. I gave urine but the nurse told me :"The doctor said there is nothing wrong with your urine. Please increase your water". Well, I dont drink sodas and only drink water. This made no sense to me. I went back again after this disatisfying appointment and insisted again for a culture. I was sent infor my email ( portal) but could not log in. I called the office to get my results after seeing, that morning , that my urine was the color of cocacola! I was feeling week and tired and the color left my face. Still no kidney pain. The RUDE front desk associate (defensive and told me that was not her department but the labs) told me I had sulfate in my urine. I actually had E- COLI in my urine. How do I know? I had to go to another doctor who told me immediately I had nitrate in my urine ( the cause of my color change) that was due to e- coli. now, this was 3 weeks later.....and now have kidney problems I need to take care of. I'm a woman in my 50's, this isn't my first rodeo...but treated me as if I didn't know what I was talking about. I believe he need to retire. I actually checked my portal after the first appointment and it said "NO LAB TESTING DONE". Thanks for nothing.
