Dr. Cox is one of the best doctors I've encountered! Great sense of humor really goes a long way yet professional in his delivery. I leave there with the feeling all doctors should learn from him in his interaction with others. Way to go!

I traveled from Massachusetts in order to have Dr. Cox perform rotator cuff surgery. He had performed the same procedure on my brother and also did my brother-in-law's knee replacement surgery. He is absolutely the BEST and I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to benefit from his expertise (and unbelievably wonderful bedside manner!). This was my second post-op appointment and was so helpful. My recovery is proceeding quite well.

The provider we have Dr. Cox is a great doctor. He is our family orthopedic. My husband sees my son sees him and I see him.
