Patient Comments (13)

Dr. Cox was rude, dismissive, and condescending. His hand had a tremor, making the procedure terrifying. This senile man should not be allowed to make healthcare decisions for anyone.

I've seen Dr. Cox for over a span of twenty years and he is always the first person I think of when oral surgery is of consideration. Dr. Cox has great chair side manner and pleasant disposition that puts me at ease. And, my procedures have been successful and pain free.

Dr. Cox has served my family for the past five years. I have trusted him with all three of my children. He and his staff are professional and do a great job. They walked us through every procedure and have the process as smooth as possible. I recommend Dr. Cox without reservation.
