    I traveled from South Fl to see Dr Cox as he was highly recommended. I knew after our lengthy consultation, despite the inconvenience of being away from home for the double mastectomy that was necessary he would be my Doctor. He managed through his very clear and informative explanation to put me at ease by patiently answering my many questions. His kindness and consideration before and after surgery match his great skills. Both qualities that define a very special doctor.

    Dr. Cox is a very smart man and a very experienced Doctor, but his office wait times have to be the absolute WORST. I've come in early for various appointments and each time I have had to wait at least 45 mins to OVER 80 minutes just to see the man, WITH AN APPOINTMENT. I do not see how this is acceptable. I understand that he is very busy but his office staff should be more mindful of how long a consultation is and schedule appointments accordingly. Never have I dread sitting in an office more.

    Dr. Cox is one of the most amazing doctors I have ever had. His bedside manner and knowledge and skill are the best you will ever experience. I went into my appointment very nervous but by the time I left I felt at peace. He was so thorough with his information and listened to what I had to say. I didn't feel rushed at all. I highly recommend Dr. Cox you will not be disappointed.
