    in Little Falls, NJ |
    Dr. Cox has to be the most respectable, tell it like it is, honest doctor ever. I saw Dr. Cox for a shoulder problem. Within 2 weeks, I had surgery and my shoulder issue of 20 years is absolutely gone.Everything went exactly as he said it would- procedure, recovery, and billing. I can't say enough about this doctor. I have never come across such honesty and character in the medical field. I highly encourage anyone seeking a 1st or 2nd opinion on orthopedic matters to seek out Dr. Cox.
