Dr. Cox was very kind and very professional. He listened and answered all the questions I had. After surgery he explained very thoroughly to my husband what he did. I have and still would highly recommend him as a surgeon.

He was very awkward with me and didn't even shake my hand. Upon our third visit he became argumentative with me over my inability to change my own dressings. It felt like I was being reprimanded for something that I've always made perfectly clear that I can't do. He's very rough with his tools and seems to lack even the slightest empathy when inflicting pain during wound debridement.
