I have complete confidence in Dr. Cox and appreciate his attention to detail. He is always current on my health history and gives a thorough explanation of any problems as they arise.

appointment was just too short and rushed to have concerns adequately answered. I am myself myself a highly qualified physician so I can scarcely imagine how rushed these apts must feel for the layperson!

Patient | November 18, 2016

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.
