Dr Cox always took time to discuss what was going on and answer any questions we had. Treated my dad as if he were a member of his family and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Although I hope to never have the need to see him again, he would without a doubt be the only person I'd consider seeking if needed and would definitely recommend same for family and anyone else.
Very happy, professional workplace and office was great!!!

During my initial consultation, he was professional, friendly, informative and was responsive to questions and clarifications sought by me as a patient. He was specific on surgical procedures and treatment; plus, he identified other specialists who would be working with him as a team. This allowed me to meet with these physicians in advance of my surgery and gain their roles and opinions. My wife and I left our consultation with Dr. Cox feeling that we were getting a competent, caring surgeon
