Memphis, TN |
Dr. Cox is wonderful. He saved my life when I had a ruptured ectopic pregancy and helped me through the physical AND the emotional healing of that. He has since delivered three babies and brought my last baby safely to term when I had some major issues come up in the pregnancy. He is so special to me and my family. He is patient, kind, and very knowledgeable.

I wish I had more stars to check for Dr. Cox. I have been seeing Dr. Cox since 1980. He has always been patient, kind, understanding and through. He delivered both of my children and also delivered my oldest grandchild. He is a one of a kind doctor. I can't imagine having any other OB/GYN.
