San Francisco, CA |
Dr. Cox is great. Explained the surgery fully, was open to questions, and follows up on me in the hospital.
in san francisco, ca |
Dr Cox is an excellent physician. He took time to explain to me and my husband the procedure and post procedure. I am completely confident I chose the right physician for me. Dr Cox is friendly, patient and responsive. Also his PA Kim and MA Gilma are also competent an responsive. Dr Cox uses Health Loops which is an excellent on-line communication tool pre and post surgery. I highly recommend Dr Cox and his staff.
in Alameda, CA |
I like Dr. Cox so much I switched insurance companies just so I could get him in network. His knowledge, experience, and skill are second to none. Highly recommended.
in San Francisco CA |
He is excellent. I am so glad he performed the procedure.
in San Francisco, CA |
Dr. Cox is clear in his explanations and patient with questions. I never felt rushed in his office during visits. I never had a problem leaving messages and getting answers to question. His office has a daily pre- and post-operation communication system that is wonderful.
in Oakland, CA |
Dr. Cox is a great doctor because he LISTENS to the concerns of his patients. He is a very thorough smart and compassionate doctor. He performed my other knee replacement. I'd definitely recommend him.
San Francisco, CA |
Dr. Cox is a superb surgeon as well as a caring and kind person. He has been my surgeon through five joint replacements and I have nothing but praise for him.
in Foresthill, CA |
highly recommended by other physicians. makes things easy to understand.
in Tiburon |
Dr Cox is engaged and caring. My experience was great with him and his entire team. My confidence increased when one of the nurses leaked that he is the "go to guy" amongt the medical community.
San Rafael, CA |
Dr. Cox has a great, relaxing bedside manner, knows his craft extremely well, is understanding and willing to take the time to answer all of you questions. Even though the recovery time is quick, hip replacement is a big deal to some people and Dr. Cox was very patient with all of my questions and even took the time to call me to answer more questions I had after I met with him. I was referred to Dr. Cox by several friends and I would definitely refer my friends to him as well. Two thumbs up!
in Petaluma, CA |
My experience from start to finish was excellent. From my diagnosis, to the surgery date, and to the recovery phase, Dr. Cox and his team, and the hospital staff were professional and caring. The communication is constant and the information shared with the patient is clear. I participated in the pre-op seminar and I use the Health Loop app daily to communicate with Dr. Cox and his team.
in San Francisco, CA |
I've been seeing Dr. Cox for annual review of my right hip replacement for over 15 years. As both my right and left hips were deformed due to a congenital disease, the left hip also had to be monitored as the cartiledge had degenerated. In March of this year, Dr. Cox replaced my left hip and in August performed a revision to replace the 17-year-old plastic lining in my right hip. Both operations were very successful -recovery has been complete and excellent.
in Antioch, CA |
Dr. Cox did a total knee replacement, followed more recently by a total hip replacement. He is an outstanding surgeon, and I feel so lucky to have found him.
