Dr. Derrick A. Fox is enthusiastic in his passion for people, medicine and teaching. This has helped him to focus on good communication with patients.

“An appointment with me should be very informative. I encourage questions so that patient develops true insights into their condition and how to treat or control it,” he said.

Dr. Fox knew from a young age he wanted to be a physician. He discovered his love of treating neuromuscular disease later on.

“When I was in medical school, I rotated on neurology and found myself fascinated by the central nervous system. The brain controls the entire body, and when it is negatively impacted, some of the most basic functions that we take for granted can be compromised,” he said.
