Kind and clear in communicating.
I didn’t feel rushed. Dr
Fox has done background research and remembered me
from several years ago.
I would like to thank you for all that you did in relation to my ablation. I would also like to thank and express my gratitude to the catheter lab team who assisted me, they were efficient, kind and caring. Your thoughtfulness and kindness was really appreciated!
Dr Fox was always understanding and attentive and we would recommend him to anybody without reservation. A very nice and understanding gentleman.
Dr Fox is superb. He is thorough in his diagnosis and he explains all aspects of both the condition and his proposed treatment plan. His support team, especially Clare are extremely helpful responding sensitively and speedily to requests for information at what can be a very stressful time. Dr Fox is a first class specialist and I would highly recommend him to others.
From the first moment I met Dr Fox, I was impressed not only by his evident knowledge, skill and experience (which is considerable) but also by his warm, approachable manner. He put me at ease straight away and from the beginning to the end of my treatment/procedure kept me well informed, explained clearly what would happen, was honest about potential problems but always made me feel relaxed and confident about the outcome. I have finally completed my treatment, which was by his admission complicated, have had my heart rhythm restored and my ECG is normal (something it hasn't been for some time). I came to Dr Fox on the recommendation of a former patient and am so pleased and fortunate that I did. I would add my own personal endorsement of his brilliant work without reservation. Thank you so much.
Very informative and pragmatic. Seen to very quickly, with an opportunity to ask all required questions without feeling rushed. Left feeling confident about personal options presented.
I have attended Dr Fox,s clinic for some time and have always found him to be very professional, with a good manner and willing to take the time to explain the reason for the treatment recommended. Under his care my health and my life have improved beyond measure and I am most grateful to him and the staff at his clinic.
Excellent communication and patient consideration. Dr Fox's consultation before hospital visit fully explained the procedure it's success rate and risks. At the hospital Dr Fox sought me out and spoke to me about the procedure He mentioned 2 possible side effects which were normal and nothing to worry about. In the lab he again asked if I had any questions. Following the operation he kept me in overnight which as a safety precaution was worthwhile. I was particularly impressed by the fact Dr Fox sought me out on another ward in the morning to check everything was ok and explain what he had found. Overall excellent
I saw Dr Fox at Wythenshawe Hospital in May 2016 having been referred from The Royal Bolton Hospital after the diagnosis of atrial fibrillation. At my appointment I saw Dr Fox, whom thoroughly went through my medical records in relation to my atrial fibrillation with me. All aspects of my problems were discussed and the procedure to hopefully correct or lessen my problems by having an ablation. Dr Fox informed myself of the different types of ablations, he explained the risks, the anticipated results in relation to these procedures and the success rates of having an ablation. Everything was discussed in detail and I was offered an ablation procedure. Having listened to Dr Fox and heard the pros and cons, I accepted to go ahead with the procedure.
In January 2017, I attended Wythenshawe Hospital for a cryoablation procedure, where again the procedure was reiterated to myself by members of staff and Dr Fox. I was awake during the procedure (although sedated and not feeling anything,) and Dr Fox explained what he was doing as he progressed and completed the procedure.
Since the procedure I have not had a recurrence of the atrial fibrillation. I saw Dr Fox again at clinic several months later and latterly in late October 2017. We discussed the results and any on going problems.
I found Dr Fox to be the perfect consultant, very professional, polite, easy to converse with, he explained everything about my problem, the procedures, the risks, outcomes etc.
(His theatre staff and clinic staff were also very professional, efficient and polite, as were the ward staff hospital ward on the day ward at Wythenshawe Hospital.)
Excellent service all round both with Dr Fox and the cardioology staff. I can't think of any aspects of my treatment or reviews/ consultations that could have been omproved.
Dr David Fox is a very personable sort of bloke, he says things as they are and explains things in ley man terms so that you fully understand what is going to be happening during your treatment. He is also is a very good listener and is able to inject some humour into the conversation when appropriate. He obviously takes a great pride in his work and comes across as a caring sort of person and communicates effectively with you at a pace and pitch you feel comfortable with, which for some people in his type of role is a rare commodity these days. He does need to drink more tea though!
my experience with Dr David Fox has been fantastic, most professional and I feel he is really taking care of me and has my best interests at heart. I have been very impressed with the whole cardiac team at Wythenshawe Hospital.
I was consistently kept updated and in the know with everything regarding my condition and I was made to feel at ease before and during the operation
I am happy to provide a review for Dr David Fox. David saved my life about 5 years ago when I had an ablation so I hold him in a very high regard indeed. He also saved the life of my then MD who I referred to him. David's "bedside manner " is superb. He is a straight talker, does not beat about the bush and is very concise and clear when explaining diagnosis and procedures. I highly recommend David Fox
Dr David Fox was excellent. He diagnosed my condition and dealt with the problem as quickly as he was able to. He explained everything clearly so that my wife and I could understand, and we both felt that we were in very good hands. Thankfully now everything is under control. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Fox to any of my friends and family.
Very professional and personable. On a simple and understandable way provided me with all the information and gave options for my treatment allowing me to take my own decision. He performed a successful intervention and was attentive to the evolution of my recovery. I would recommend Dr. Fox.
Dr Fox has a good approachable manner , happy to answer questions, and appointments are always on time.
Dr Fox is thoughtful,kind and thorough. He listened carefully to my problems, explained the investigations he recommended and discussed the results in detail.
No problems what so ever. Dr. Fox listens carefully and gives great detail in his answers.
I had my cardiac ablation several months ago and the whole process from nurses, doctors and all staff was very professional.
BTW: My ablation seems to have fixed my atrial fibrillation.
Dr Fox has an open and approachable manner which helps reduce the stress levels during the consultation and treatment. He takes care that the procedure is clearly explained and understood including the options, expected outcome and potential issues associated with the treatment, all without bombarding you with medical jargon.
Before I had my ablation I was breathless on walking short distances, my ankles and feet were odematus and I had no energy. I found Dr. Fox very approachable and easy to talk to. In surgery I felt so safe and well cared for. My every need was attended to and I even chatted to Dr Fox at one point and I felt so reassured. I now feel like a new person. I can walk without becoming breathless. No odema. No AF. I've lost 1st 4lbs since the procedure. I feel great. Thank you so much Dr. Fox and your team for giving me a new lease on life.

It was worth the wait to see Dr Fox. I felt in safe hands from day 1. Everything was explained clearly and Dr Fox and his team at Wythenshawe were very professional, friendly and reassuring. A successful and life-changing procedure.. thank you!
I have nothing but praise for the care that I received under Dr Fox. I attended his clinic for help with ongoing Atrial Fibrillation. At my initial consultation with Dr Fox he made me feel completely at ease explaining my condition and options in a clear, calm and kind way. He displayed a very reassuring professionalism throughout my surgery and recovery in hospital. I am so delighted and thankful that my heart is now back in normal sinus rhythm and I able to enjoy life to the full, on and off the golf course!
Overall impression of the waiting time, treatment and bed side manner by staff and Dr Davd Fox was excellent
My overall experience with Dr. Fox was excellent, he explain things pointing out the positive and the negatives in an easy to understand way that put my mind at ease. I had an operation which has so far been successful, I've also had the follow up appointment. All the appointments and the operation were done through the NHS and were met within the time scale I was advised when booking.
Dr Fox was fabulous!
He really put me at ease on our first meeting, which, for a 30 year old who had just found out she had a heart condition, was terrifying.
There was a 5 month wait from consultation to surgery but this could have been up to 10 months so I personally was happy with the wait.
On the day of surgery, I was apprehensive especially knowing I would be awake during the procedure, but had the utmost confidence in Dr Fox and his team who all really put me at ease.
I'd recommend Dr Fox in a heartbeat (no pun intended). Thank you!
I found Dr Fox informative, providing clear and logical explanations of the different treatment options available, so that my choices were straightforward. He was reassuring during the procedure with good bedside manner. Overall, everything I could have wished for.
I have recently been under the care of Dr David Fox and his team for a cardiac ablation in December 2017. Dr Fox and his team have been wonderful in every way. Dr Fox it is an excellent well mannered professional, I highly recommend anyone. Thank you
Thank you very much, At my appointment last Monday I find everything has indeed gone very well and the pacemaker is working fine. I am so please to have been your patient.
Dr David Fox has been my cardiac electrophysiology consultant for several years. He works in the North West Heart Centre, University Hospital of South Manchester in Wythenshawe, Manchester. Dr Fox has invariably been kind and patient despite his heavy work load and always took the time to explain my condition and the risks and benefits of treatment. From my observations, he seemed to care personally about each individual patient. Six months ago he undertook a cryoballoon ablation for my paroxysmal atrial fibrillation which had been present and treated with medication for 16 years. Although a little concerned about the procedure which is not without risk, I felt safe in Dr Fox's hands. The procedure was without event and I felt relaxed all the time. I now am free from the AF for which I am pleased and very grateful!
I can vouch for Dr Fox's skill, compassion and professionalism.
Dear Dr Fox, In this small note I would like to thank you for all the heartfelt care I received from you and your team. You and your team demonstrated kindness and professionalism. Thank you for the 'First Class' treatment I received by making me feel relaxed and well looked after.
Dear Dr Fox, I'd like to say thank you very much for your time and effort. I was greatly impressed by the expertise of yourself and all your staff.
Thank you so much for taking care of me.
