Excellent staff. Dr. Cox was able to pinpoint the problem and recommend the right medication. The convenience of his office in Sylacauga is an added benefit.

My experience with Dr. Cox both in the hospital and in his clinic has been excellent. I feel extremely confident being under his care. He listens both to the concern regarding my heart but also picks up on some of the other issues I am dealing with. During my last visit he noted that my left ankle is swollen due to surgery but being extra cautious he had ultrasound done on my leg which verified that there was no circulatory problem

Outstanding Cardiologist. Very Smart, really nice person to deal with. Kept me and my wife informed. Was cautious on not doing unnecessary procedures until my symptoms reached the point of needing procedure (heart cath). Procedure went well and thankfully no blockages. Explained to me and my wife in detail what was going to do, then what he did and what he found and explained my existing life long heart issue to me in detail as well. Seemed genuinely interested in me and my health. Great Dr.

I was very lucky to have Dr. Cox Zs my cardiologist. I came to the ER in full arrest. Dr. Cox took great care of me. He is evidenced based and understands the data. His bedside manner is only second to his technical skills. I'm very happy my energetic situation was in the hands of Dr. Cox.

Very comfortable with Dr Cox - he explains things in a way that is easy to understand. He put a heart stint in me 3 years ago. Dr Cox is very encouraging, personable and pleasant during my follow up visits. Highly recommend Dr Cox.
