There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

Dr Fox A+

Dr. Fox is by far the best doctor I've ever seen. He was very helpful with changing my medications to better suit my needs, and seemed genuinely concerned with helping me become a healthier me.

This was the second time I saw Dr. Michael J. Fox. He is my php now. I think he will be good to work with. He has a good sense of humor, even when I asked him about "Back To The Future". But seriously he is going to be my focal point of trying to manage my diabetes.

I have had kidney stones for 8 months and still have not received any solution to getting rid of them. They make my back hurt and he wants me to go to physical therapy for kidney stones!!

Recommended at shot for rotator cuff pain and provided therapy instructions rather than sent me off to an orthopedic surgeon. Appreciate that.
Dec 28, 2015
I always recommend Dr. Fox to anyone who mentions that they need a good doctor...he's the best!

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.

Dr. Fox is extremely client friendly, great bedside manners and very competent. Bothe myself and my wife came to the clinic together and left completely satisfied.
Dec 10, 2015
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.
Sep 9, 2015
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.
Jul 27, 2015
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.
June 25, 2015
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.
June 23, 2015
#2. Once I got to finally speak to *Dr. Fox.
May 29, 2015
That's why I continue to see Dr. Fox.
