Specialties

Dr. Michael E Fox has the following 3 specialties

  • Critical Care Medicine

    Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
    Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • 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.

Phone System

You have a terrible phone system. No one has extensions, you have to wait to leave a message for anyone and your instructions for contacting someone is not appropriate for your office. I have shared my concerns with the office staff and the doctor and I have been told the same thing now for 3 years, we are getting a new system. Still waiting. Unplug or discontinue the service and have the phone answered by a human being.

Great Help!

Dr. Fox has been great for my health care he has helped me reduce my medications from 6 to 1 in approximately 2 years. He is the first doctor to correctly diagnosis my condition and treat it appropriately. Even when he is talking fast he will stop to listen to your questions and is extremely helpful with his explanations. I will continue to see him as long as possible...

Happy with this doc!

I am very happy with my association with Dr. Fox. He is friendly, intelligent and well-educated. He encourages me to do better without berating me or putting me down or talking down to me. He listens carefully and answers my questions respectfully and relevantly. He doesn't rush me through, either. I have been looking for a doctor like this for a long time. Thank you, Dr. Fox!

Keep on top of his staff!

His staff is horrible about keeping track of charts/records. You are not just dealing with patients who might have broken a finger nail! These are patients who have serious problems. As I also work in the medical field, I know the importance of keeping track of records/charts. Get with it people! You could have possibly saved a life, instead of losing one, THANKS!!
