Dr. Karen R Fox has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

I think this doctor is VERY over worked. There were problems.

I think she is a good doctor that is over worked. She misread information in my file during my visit, but was unwilling to listen when I told her it was incorrect. Communication was difficult with her, and I have been on the same meds successfully for 30 yrs. My psychiatrist RETIRED. I needed medication maintenance, it should have been easy. My 1st appt was to be 1/17/17, her office canceled & rescheduled for 4/10/17, her office canceled & rescheduled for 6/22/17. I recommend thinking long & hard before going here.

Very nice, intelligent doctor. I've had shrinks who took long, drawn out phone calls while I was there, or had trouble remembering my case. Dr. Fox pretty well stays on top of things, but it is important as with any doctor for you to keep up with your prescriptions, important dates, etc.At any rate, she's the best of about a half dozen professionals I've visited.
