Tim Fox, PT, DPT, GCS I Founder and CEO I NJ LIC# 40QA00702100
Dr. Tim Fox is a practicing physical therapist and the Founder and CEO of Fox Rehabilitation™. Dr. Fox graduated from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA in 1995 with a Master of Science in Physical Therapy. He received his Board Certification as a Geriatric Clinical Specialist (GCS) in 2008 from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties and went on to complete his Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree (DPT) in 2009 from Thomas Jefferson University. He is also an APTA Credentialed Clinical Instructor (CCI).
Dr. Fox's interest in the unique needs of the elderly allowed him to identify a gap and significant limitation in how the elderly access and receive necessary physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. After delving into the law, he realized he could provide house calls under Medicare Part B. This model would allow each patient to receive the correct frequency and duration of care as indicated by need. Dr. Fox vowed to provide accessible, evidence-based therapy interventions that are highly effective in improving levels of function, safety, quality of life, and well-being. With that philosophy and strategy, he founded Fox Rehabilitation in 1998.
Fox was built on the novel foundation of Geriatric House Calls™, and throughout its growth, the practice has stayed true to its mission of rehabilitating lives by believing in the strength of people. Diversification has included outpatient clinics, skilled nursing rehabilitation, and pediatric centers with house call visits.
Dr. Fox believes that by using best practice guidelines and the latest evidence, and by insisting on high clinical and interpersonal standards from himself and his colleagues, Fox Rehabilitation patients should perform at their most optimal functional level, regardless of past and current medical conditions.
In addition to his dedication to Fox Rehabilitation, Dr. Fox is dedicated to the education of the next generation of therapists. He holds a seat on the Thomas Jefferson University Board of Trustees and on the Scientific and Academic Affairs Committee. Fox has also established two endowed scholarships with TJU. The first is The Fox Rehabilitation Scholarship for the Advancement of Occupational Therapy, in memory of Margaret Sood. The second is The Fox Rehabilitation Scholarship for the Advancement of Physical Therapy.
