Everything went as described by the assistant when I made the appointment. This was my first experience with this type of treatment, so I was very nervous. The assistant explained every step of the process including the discomfort level. So I was well prepared for what was going to happen. She was correct on all levels. I'm in my third day of recovery and all is well and going as planed. Thank you a Happy Client :) Joan Mathis

Dr. Cox has been my dermatologist since the early 1990s. I have had a lot of sun damage from too much fun in the sun during my younger years and have had one malignant mole removed. I trust Dr. Cox to find suspicious spots and remove them before further problems occur. He is caring and takes his time with patients.

I've been extremely satisfied with Dr. Cox after leaving another doctor about 5 years ago. He's bright, confident, friendly and communicates clearly.
in Alpharetta |
Dr. Cox has been our family's Dermatologist to go. I have referred many of my friends and acquaintances to Dr. Cox, and my brother Ranjan, who referred me to Dr. Cox in the first place told me that if I did not go to Dr. Cox for my Dermatology needs, then I should go to no other doctor. His total faith in Dr. Cox's treatment was enough for me to start my treatment for Vitiligo. It has been over 7 years that I am going to visit him and I am amazed at his professionalism and human being!
in Atlanta, GA |
My husband and I have been his patient s for years He is very thorough in his examination and tak es time to answer our questions He is a kind person. A few weeks ago one of our neighbores broke out in an awful rash.. She didn't hava dermatologist but called him for help. He worked her in the next morning.

Dr. Cox is such a wonderful doctor! He gives a lot of time listening to patients concerns and explaining answers. Dr. Cox made sure to be available to us when our daughter was in a crisis. I cannot say enough what a fine physician and kind person he is. Very highly recommend!

Dr. Cox is an outstanding physician. He listens carefully, examines with a learned eye, and communicates in a thoughtful and very effective manner. I have found the Perimeter Dermatology team to be technically advanced, detail oriented, and highly patient centered.
Atlanta, GA |
Dr Cox is very patient and thorough. I appreciate the time he spends to be sure that everything is taken care of - long wait times but this is worth it, in my opinion, for the level of care received.
in Sarasota, FL |
No matter what time of day one schedules an appointment, Gregory Cox is chronically for appointments...no explanations, no apologies. Before changing doctors, I scheduled his first appointment of the day hoping to minimize the time I was pulled away from work. He was 2 hours late.
in Atlanta, GA |
Long wait times, curt front desk and billing, very expensive. ASK FOR PRICES OF TREATMENTS in the event your insurance does not provide coverage.
He was thorough, caring and considerate.
in Atlanta GA |
He is very professional but kind and considerate. He doesn't rush. He clarifies diagnoses and plan of care. He seems genuinely interested in patient concerns. I trust him.
I was referred by Dr. Caputo for one of my children, who is 6 years old. We waited an hour and a half to be seen. Many people in the waiting room where also frustrated and commenting that this is not the first time this has happened. When folks went to speak to the staff, they were all told speak with the doctor. When I brought it up to Dr. Cox he was extremely defensive (instead of apologizing for long wait) and rude. I will not be going back again and I would not suggest bringing children.
