Wonderful Doctor

Dr. Richard Fox did a surgery that the University of Colorado Hospital would not do. Now my fatigue is gone. Dr Fox is so nice . I highly recommend Dr. Fox for any surgery you might need.

Dr. Fox is A+!

I don’t normally go out of my way to write a review, but I feel fortunate that my PCP recommended Dr. Fox to me. I saw him for varicose veins & every step along the way was very easy. Dr. Fox took the time to explain everything at the consultation and the procedure itself was quick. The office staff took care of insurance pre-authorizations beforehand and called me to confirm as much, which I appreciated. Dr. Fox is warm, funny & kind, not to mention that he’s an excellent surgeon. Very thankful to the entire staff of Alpine!

Excellent Surgeon

Last Friday night I was admitted to the hospital for emergency surgery. After a multitude of tests I was introduced to Dr. Richard J Fox, my surgeon. Dr. Fox’s caring manner, his sense of humor, and his detailed explanation of the upcoming procedure allayed any fear or apprehensions I had. He is an excellent surgeon....definitely 5 star.

Excellent Experience

Dr Fox put me at ease immediately during the consultation with his kindness and sense of humor. He had already reviewed my various medical test results and history prior to walking in the room, then did his own ultrasound during this consultation. He explained all of the test results and what they meant and then explained why parathyroid surgery was necessary. He explained the surgery procedure and then answered my list of questions concerning the diagnosis, surgery and recovery. His office staff was so helpful with the price breakdown, getting the pre-authorizations and the needed orders for blood work and RX. His surgery team all talked to me and spoke highly of Dr. Fox. The atmosphere was so positive which really put me at ease. The follow-up blood work and appointment confirmed that the surgery was a success! I feel that my surgery was successful because of Dr. Fox and his skills/knowledge. I was totally pleased with the entire process from consultation, surgery and follow-up.
