Explanation

I have been a patient of Dr Foxton’s since 2019. He carried out a colonoscopy and in 2020 saw him again for some checks and he was the first person to identify my autoimmune condition as well as my polyp in my gall bladder. He takes his job seriously, listens well, takes his notes and makes sure everything is checked thoroughly! I was referred to another gastroenterologist recently by my Haematologist but as Dr Foxton set the bar high I decided I couldn’t go through with that referral after the first consultation and called my insurance to see if I could go back to Dr Foxton, it was not a problem at all as he was one of the highly rated Drs and they know his work due to patient feedback. Everything was arranged straight away and organised by his team for my tests and I know I’m in safe hands. I’m due another colonoscopy and endoscopy. I would highly recommend anyone who is in search out there for a hepatologist and gastroenterologist.

Dr. Foxton took time to explain my condition and offered her medical view across the different conditions I have. He made every effort to translate lab results so that I understand and was examined me very thoroughly. I highly recommend him and will stick with him in the long run as well. Once more, thank you.

The service that I received from Dr. Foxton and his entire team have been beyond amazing. From the first appointment and all throughout my treatment, Dr. Foxton was helpful, kind and very attentive. He ensured that I am properly informed about my health and care and always asked if I had any questions or concerns. He put my mind ease and gave me the confidence that I needed. I have never come across a doctor that combines such personal touches and care for a patient as a person with outstanding quality of medical care. I am very grateful for him.
