Ratings for Dr. Macy L. Fox
Worst doctor I have ever seen. I was in labor and she didn't do anythng to help my pain management and refused to admit me. I ended up being 6cm dilated and within 10 minutes I went to 9.5cm. I was in agony and got sent home from the hospital with a "thats where we are at right now" and a shrug. She has no bedside manner; there was no empathy. She ruined the experience of my first child coming in to this world and she refused to admit me, I was not able to use the facilities of the room during my labor that I was paying for. Im still angry about it. awful awful awful!
My husband, son, and I all LOVE Dr. Fox. She is so sweet and welcoming whenever my son and husband come with me for an appointment, and tells me what will be going on at the next appointment if it's more than just measuring and listening to baby so I know I may not want to bring my son. She answers all my questions, and never makes me feel silly or stupid for asking a question. She was fantastic for my dirt pregnancy and delivery, and has been great with this one. If I had a friend look for an OBGYN, I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
She was very degrading to me, always made me feel like I was just so stupid and ignorant when I asked any questions. Her front desk and nursing staff were amazing, and when it came to delivering my baby, I didn't tear at all....probably because my daughter was crowning for 30 minutes before she actually showed up to deliver her. RIDICULOUS. Needless to say, I picked a different doctor for my second child. Also, my mother-in-law used to see her and she diagnosed the wrong prescriptions for what she needed and caused her to get SICKER! I would NOT recommend Dr. Fox. The only reason she doesn't get one star is because the rest of her staff was amazing.
I felt like Dr. Fox wasn't that concerned with my emotional state. She diagnosed me with PCOS, which was disappointing for me, but she just shrugged and told me it's very common. I felt like she was basially telling my to stop whinning. She was very blunt and brisk, which is hard when you're working with her to try to conceive for a eight months. I felt she was fairly knowledgeable, but was quick to shoot down alternatives I had researched. I was happy to move on to another MD who had great bedside manner - something Dr Fox majorly lacks. Her nurse is great, though.
She didn't seem to even have emotion. I came to her with severe pain from endometriosis. After she went over a list of the things I had tried before, and my allergies, she prescribed me an asprin-based NSAID, right after I told her I had an asprin allergy. I nearly died. When I came back to her, expecting that it was a good faith mistake, she told me I was faking for pain pills!!
I felt that Dr. Fox was very uncompassionate and did not listen to me or show concern with the problems I have been having. I told her I was in extreme pain that had been building over a period of months. I had a bunch of other sypmtoms that were quite concerning and she just shrugged. When I told her my fears she just said 'well, that's where your at right now" I feel that she did not care at all about my concerns and just brushed them off. After seeing her I ended up in th ER a few days later where they found a 4 inch cyst on my ovary that was twisting which was causing my terrible pain. With my symptoms she should have had me undergo a pelvic ultrasound immediately. When she was examining me she even said that it felt strange but that my prior CT scan said it was unremarkable and she shrugged, yet CT scans do not always show cysts. Unbelievable. If you are looking for a compassionate doctor that takes a proactive approach with her patients do not go to see her.
