He'll sell you on a false diagnosis

I can't speak to repro, but if you're going to him for gyn, run, don't walk, for a second opinion to another doctor - ESPECIALLY if he diagnoses inguinal hernias. I found out afterwards that he's known by his peers for overdiagnosing those and consequently doing mesh surgery with a general surgeon unnecessarily.

Too many patients

He clearly has too many patients. All of my appointments were either rescheduled, he would show up late or not at all. Whenever I had to have a procedure done at his office, the nurses always made me feel like it was an inconvenience to schedule me. Be prepared to be pushed around by his nurses and be told to quit eating sugar. I just never felt like he cared about my infertility.

Consent not neccessay to Dr. Fox

I would strongly recommend not seeing this doctor. I went there for memory issues since my insurance had him listed as a psychiatrist in their database of doctors. After waiting an hour or so for him, I was beginning to get the idea he might specialize in drugs. When I met with him, I let him know what I was looking for but instead had his own agenda. I told him I have one glass of wine per week on Friday evening after he asked me my alcohol history. There is not one person who ever thought I have a drinking issue in my life. No sane person could make that conclusion. I was given a cup for pee at the end of the appointment. I assumed this is for a standard Urine Analysis. It turns out it wasn't for a Urine Analysis as it was for a drug test. I know I haven't taken drugs and should have been told what it was. Apparently he runs his practice with no trust for his patients. Maybe for drug treatment programs that is necessary, but not for general practice. I called his office for the Urine Analysis results a few days later and was told that wasn't the test I was getting. I was getting a drug test. I was livid. I called the doctor about this unethical behavior and he believes that he is not under any obligation to inform patients and get their consent for tests. On the call he was definitely less of a gentleman than I would expect from a medical professional. He prescribed medications that are the best medications for a drug addict and not necessarily the best medications for my situation. After talking to a different doctor, I learned that. Maybe he is a good drug rehab doctor, but he is definitely not good for anyone that is not a drug addict in my opinion.
