      Dr Cox was highly recommended to me. I am very glad I chose him as my surgeon. He was very easy to talk to and he explained in detail all phases of the procedure. The cancer was in a difficult area and lasted approximately 4 hrs. I don’t think I could have gotten better results. Surgery performed on a Monday morning I was on my way home Wednesday morning. I feel great a little sore at the incision spots as the surgery was done robotically. Considering a four hour procedure it could not have ended better. Dr Cox and his entire staff are the best!!!!!!

      I had a semi-emergency. When I called, the staff worked me into the schedule for the next day. I was taken back on time and saw Dr. Cox shortly after. He explained everything in terms I could understand and answered all of my questions. Everyone at COPE was professional, helpful and kind.

      Needless to say when I was told on December 2019 that I had a life threatening situation , I was very afraid. I was recommended to see Dr. Cox. After speaking with him, I was confident that I had the right doctor. I had his full attention, listened to every question and made sure I understood his answers. He did the operation and when the biopsy came back, he called me immediately after speaking with the pathologist to give me the results. It was on a Friday and he said he did not want me to go through the weekend worrying about it. Dr. Cox, Gina and staff are a blessing.

      I had my procedures done by Ms. Gene and Dr. Cox. They both were really professional and made you feel really comfortable. They both explained to me in very details of what they were going to do and what I would expect after the procedure. Today was my last one and it went very smoothly. Thank you

      I found Dr Cox extremely professional and kind. He put me at ease by explaining my situation in very simple language. Also, as he performed an examination on me he explained what he was going to do step by step before he did it. I will definitely refer other people to him.

      Dr Cox was straight forward about my husbands condition while at the same time being compassionate. He didn’t try to force an immediate decision after he thoroughly explained the situation but let us be in control of the decision.

      Dr Cox is an exceptional doctor who supported me through total colectomy and jpouch surgeries. I felt secure, going into a life altering situation, knowing he was in charge. Gina and his staff were also there to answer questions and provide emotional support throughout this difficult time. I highly recommend Dr Clifton Cox and his staff. Karen
