Dr. Cox II's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cox II "Dr. Cox is a board certified Colon & Rectal Surgeon with over 25 years of experience. The COPE Center combines the efforts of one of the region's leading colorectal specialist, Dr. Cox, with specialized pelvic floor physical therapists all in one facility to offer compassionate, comprehensive and high quality care. There are very few practices in the nation who combine these specialties all under one roof, which enables them to work as a team to determine which combination of approaches is best for each individual patient. The team discusses the patient's progress and updates treatment plans as needed. The staff at COPE realizes that a patient's treatment plan is like a puzzle - with therapy, medical, surgical and office-based pieces interlocking to form a coherent picture of patient care. Dr. Cox and his staff are committed to solving that puzzle for every patient. You can count on the COPE Center to educate you on the many options available and help you reduce the pain you're experiencing or help you regain your confidence so that you may have the freedom ad the quality of life you desire. From Dr. Cox: " I think the biggest mistake people with colon and rectal or pelvic problems make is either self-diagnosing or not seeking treatment due to embarrassment or fear. My advice is to seek out a physician who is specialized in this field to assist you in finding and then fixing the problem. The treatments are generally much easier and effective than anticipated and it allows me to hear what I most like to hear from patient - I don't need you anymore, I'm fixed!""

Patient Comments (9)
Southlake, TX |
Very poor treatment by staff. Dr. Cox was great however tried to schedule surgery after first visit and called FIVE times over three weeks with NO reply. They warned me that repeatedly calling would delay a response. I was in pain and bleeding. They could have just told me they were busy and I should go elsewhere instead they just kept promising a return call that never happened. Totally unprofessional. Scheduled surgery with another surgeon the same week!

i highly recommend Dr Cox. He has performed all five of my colonoscopies throughout the years. His bedside manner is very pleasant and he cheerfully answers any questions to put your mind at ease. His office staff is thorough and organized.

I had been miss diagnosed by two physicians. The third physician said you need to see a surgeon, I said when, he answered today. He got me in to see Dr Cox that afternoon. The next morning I was in surgery. To say that Dr Cox saved my life is possibly not an overstatement. Since then I?ve had a subsequent surgery for additional reconstruction. I trust this man implicitly. He treats me with kindness and respect. His explanations of what has to be done are thorough, complete and at an appropriate.
