Patient Comments (2)

I like Dr. Cox. The pros are that's he's kind and patient and listened to and addressed all of my pre-surgery concerns.. He performed my surgery which went very well. He came highly recommended and is an excellent surgeon. Cons - his staff doesn't relay important messages to him in a timely manner....more
