The man’s skills as a surgeon probably saved my life. Can’t say enough about the entire staff including Gina and Leah of whom I dealt with the most. Dr Cox is the best and the only colorectal surgeon for me.

Dr. Cox’s office staff was very accommodating and efficient with scheduling and communication. My experience at the surgery facility was excellent! I didn’t have a long wait, and the nurses were so friendly and competent. Dr. Cox came by before the procedure to answer any questions I might have, and then, after the procedure, he talked with me about the results. He is very personable and an expert in his field! I will definitely select him again when it is time for another procedure!
