Doctor seemed to Be in a rush. I feel I got no answers. And during explaination of my problem his cellphone rang and no excuse me just answered it and left the room.

He is just not very friendly - it's was my initial contact with him. Took him a while to warm up - he just came in room - said hello- washed his hands and sat down at the computer - opened it up - no eye contact - took me a while to warm up to him but was very sick so in a sense mayb it was me . Just didn't make me feel warm - different personalities u know

Dr. Fox was very professional and an excellent communicator.

Our visits with Dr. Fox are always exceptional. He is a very caring physician and always explains things to us in layman's terms. We are truly fortunate to have him as our provider.

I've been seeing Dr. Fox for a long time. Since he moved to Geisinger Wyoming Valley I now have to drive almost an hour to get there. Considering the fact that I'm still going rather than changing doctors to stay in Scranton I think speaks for itself.

When I have chronic pain and my PCP does not want to presecribe meds that would help me going through this constsant pain.... he is not showing concern of try to help at all. I'd say he is not a doctor.
Aug 17, 2015
I would highly recommend Dr. Fox to others. He asked lots of questions and took his time with me. He was very thorough in his exam.

Have been seeing *Dr Fox over 20 years. When he transferred to Wilkes-Barre from Mt pleasant, so did we.
Jul 10, 2015
This was my initial visit with Dr. Fox, whom I was meeting for the first time. I have not yet had the opportunity to build up a level of trust, as this was a routine follow-up appointment that was originally scheduled with my previous physician. I am hoping that I will eventually develop a level of confidence in his skills equal to that which I shared with Dr. Smita Nikam.

A+ I am a long time patient of *DR. FOX. The trip to Wilkes-Barre is no problem to see such a professional as *Michael Fox.

Dr. Fox was excellent. This was my first visit and I will continue using Dr. Fox as my PCP.
Apr 30, 2015
I would gladly accept Dr. Fox or my primary care physician. He is a very compassionate provider. I was also grateful to promptly receive reports of my tests & labs on the same day of service.

Due to my situation, two of my older children also were allowed to hear/see the doctor with me. The medical staff seemed ok with this.
March 31, 2015
I liked Dr. Fox. He took his time to explain things & let me tell him things.
March 25, 2015
Dr. Fox has been my care provider for almost 2 decades. We have an excellent dr. patient relationship. He is very thorough and diligent. That's why I followed him to W. Bame.

Dr. Michael Fox - very caring.
March 16, 2015
Care giver was interested in my concerns, provided me with a plan to address my concerns.
March 9, 2015
Dr. Fox was an outstanding care provider he spent quality getting to know my medical history as a new patient and took the time to address all issues and concerns I had.
Feb 24, 2015
Dr. Fox makes me laugh, and that's "free" medicine! Don't always agree with him, but at least we both respect each others views and that's refreshing. I have a complicated medication situation, and Dr. Fox took me as a patient in 2006, when I lived in Scranton.
Feb 23, 2015
Dr. Fox is not my primary physician. He agreed to see me because my PP was too busy. I assumed that he learned of my problem from the info. I gave the nurse so when he actually saw me it was a brief encounter I suppose he thought he did his best; but I would have liked more discussion. He was eager to get to the pharmacy which was about to close in 15 min. to order meds. He seemed polite enough but the visit seemed to be rushed.
