Dr. Heidi Cox, MD
I've been a practicing pediatric surgeon for almost 15 years, and I still get joy every single day from what I do. Cardon Children's Hospital has grown into a fantastic place for sick children, and I take pride in being here. We have an amazing group of pediatric surgeons, and I honestly feel that children get the absolute best surgical care from all of us.

Dr. Cox spoke to us like a friend, she is informative, responsive to questions, takes her time. She is calm, compassionate, empathetic and provides great support. I'm very grateful she was the surgeon we chose for our two children's four surgeries. She made tough situations much easier. The front office people are always so patient and nice. The nurses and PAs are gentle and kind and great listeners.

Excellent surgeon! Was willing to help my daughter when all GI, gynecologists, pain specialists, etc could not find anything. She did a laparoscopy on my daughter finding adhesions that had twisted her gall bladder and bowels, along with acute apendicitis. Thanks to her I have my daughter back- a smiling playful little girl instead of a life in pain! Cannot thank her enough!
My pleasure - thanks for the review and I'm so glad she is so much better!
