Dr. Cox is one of the kindest doctors ever. He never uses his computer when he's talking to you and he just listens and gives his helpful feedback with common sense advice. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a caring, compassionate doctor. He would rate 10 stars if possible. Also, his physical therapy staff is one of the best pelvic pain clinics that I've experienced.

I have been going to Dr Cox for over 18 years. Colon cancer runs in my family and Dr Cox is known to be the most knowledgeable and outstanding doctor in his field. He always answers any questions I may have, listens to my concerns, and performs colonoscopies when I need them. He has also performed a hemorrhoidectomy on me. This last visit was for an abscess that was extremely painful. They worked me into their busy schedule and gave me the care I needed. I would travel any distance to see him.

Dr. Cox is very good at what he does. He’s very skilled, detailed and thorough as well as very patient and compassionate with his patients. I had a total colon removal jpouch 2 part surgery and He always takes his time to answer all my questions to help me feel at ease with what is happening and what to expect. And stays engaged with following up on my recovery progress. Him and Dr Gena have made this process much smoother and achievable. Thank you

Dr. Cox is excellent. I had an emergent situation and was provided care by Dr. Cox promptly and professionally. I trust him implicitly. He listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. The office itself is very nice, minimal wait time, and the staff was very nice.

I suffered from fissures and hemorrhoids for 2 years before visiting Dr. Cox. My primary doctor could not treat me or refer me - it was hell sitting in bathroom. I am so glad I found this facility. Dr. Cox and Gina first treated my hemorrhoids with utmost care. I got better but when the symptoms reoccurred I took PT from Carmen and within few sessions she retrained my bowel. I am symptom free for 11 months and am very thankful to everyone in this facility on this thanksgiving day.

Dr. Cox performed a colonoscopy on me on Wed, November 14, 2018, at Lone Star Endoscopy Center in Southlake, TX. I have been a patient of his for several years, and this is my second such procedure with him. I have nothing but praise for him as usual, but because this was my first experience at this facility, I want to focus my comments on it. Everyone at this facility was totally professional. Thanks to Marti, Marlet, Maybelle, Tina, Anna, Kimmie. All were wonderful. Thank you so much.

My experience with Dr Cox before surgery and after surgery gave me complete confidence in the quality of his care. I am doing very well as of today, 4 weeks after colon surgery

He Severed my urater during what should have been a routine surgery for him. He didn't give me adequate pain medication for the pain I was in, told me I probably only had a low grade infection which he would not provide antibiotics for and he told me not to go to the ER. I waited until I thought I was going to die and by that point an ambulance needed to be called. He then went behind my back texting and contacting my other doctors without my permission. All of these facts are proven.

IF your looking to have a procedure performed by this guy, please get a second opinion, with your actual test results as he will and HAS performed surgery that was not needed based on disregarding findings of said tests. We have been to a multitude of specialists since this "needed" surgery to try and have things corrected and they have all looked at the tests surgery was based on and said that there was nothing found, why was this performed? Little man syndrome or incompetence.

Knowledgeable, great “bedside manners”, handles sensitive subject matters with empathy and caring attitude. All the staff is AWESOME! One of the few places you would find a pelvic physical therapist. Highly sought after professional. Sometimes non urgent matters have to be scheduled out a few weeks.
