I am very satisfied with my care from Dr. Charles Cox and would, and have prior to my visit with him due to positive responses from other patients, recommend him to others.

Dr. Cox was very adamant about seeing me for the injury to the knee I had surgery on last year. He was very thorough in his exam to make sure there were no immediate indications of injury more than the initial impact and he took the time to explain each option I had available as well as the medication he would be giving me.
