NJ Top Doctor- Daniel E. Fox, M.D., F.A.C.S. – The Center for Orthopedic Care & Sports Medicine
Scotch Plains – April 2013
“My philosophy towards treating patients is to always try to get them back to the state they were before their injury or ailment.This is exemplified with treating athletes.I never want to tell my patient that there is nothing I can do for them and that they have to live in their compromised condition.I have focused much of my effort and expertise utilizing new cutting edge techniques to treat conditions in which previously there were less effective solutions available.”
