Specialties

Dr. Kevin R Fox has the following 2 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Appreciation to Dr. Fox

My wife was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, ER+,PR+ and HER2+ at one spot and ER+,PR+ and HER- at another spot on the same breast. This was confirmed after surgery and we went to see Dr. Kevin Fox at the University of Pennsylvania for her post surgery therapy. Based on this diagnosis the treatment option includes six cycles of chemotherapy followed by six months of Hercptin. Dr Fox questioned the diagnosis and decided to re-test the tumor. Since the surgery was done at a different hospital and lab, sample was transferred to Penn to re-test. The result was HER2- on both spots which changed the treatment protocol to a total of four cycles of chemotherapy that was completed in three months. Dr. Fox is very skilled, knowledgeable and caring individual who saved my wife from going thu' unnecessary treatment for the entire year. Thank you Dr. Fox. I believe all breast cancer patients deserve a doctor like Dr. Kevin R Fox.

The best doctor ever!!!

Love Dr. Fox. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 34 years old and was completely terrified of the diagnosis, treatment options, and chances for recurrence.Dr. Fox had the ultimate best bedside manner, explained all of my options, and put my fears at ease.He is, without a doubt, the most compassionate and brilliant physician I've ever known.
