I saw Dr. Cox for severe pain in my big toe. He took an X-ray and told me my pain was caused by hyperflexibility in my joints. My pain persisted despite his recommendations, so I got a second opinion. The second doctor identified a fracture in my big toe right away. I went back to Dr. Cox's office and looked at his X-ray in person. The fracture was easy to see in the X-ray, but Dr. Cox didn't take the time to do a thorough exam and diagnose me correctly. The doctor I saw for the second opinion was very thorough and had me wishing I had gone to him in the first place. I was billed a small amount beyond insurance by Dr. Cox, and called him and explained that I had been misdiagnosed by him and that I had to get a second opinion in order to be diagnosed correctly. I asked him if he would be willing to give a discount on the amount I owed. Dr Cox denied that he provided less than optimal care, and insisted that I pay the full amount owed. Learn from my mistake and seek a more thorough Dr.

Didn't help much, still have pain in my ankle. I was told to bring in my MRI disk so he could look at it. Never got the disk back, the front office wasn't sure what happened to it. And I never heard back from him. He just wanted me to spend hundreds of dollars for custom insoles. The MRI Dr. told me I had a torn ligament, But Dr. Cox said it was like "tennis elbow", off the x-ray he did.

Unfortunately, I agree with the 1 Star ratings posts. I too walked out. The office was just filthy with discarded wound wrappings in the trash can. I could not stay in the room any longer and breath the toxic environment. This should have been in a Bio Hazard disposal container. Heaven help any homeless person who picks through the dumpster at night! Not sure what medical board would have to say? My insurance better not be billed! I agree, I felt it was all about the $$$.

Stay clear of this very unprofessional practice! They have caused me yet another year of pain and my ankle that I have to deal with because of their scheduling and insurance verification. Their website says they take my insurance BCBS they told me when I made the appointment, but yet again for the second year in a row they call me the same day of my appointment this time telling me they don't take my insurance and I would have to be self pay!

Not good. Everything seemed to revolve around MONEY. Too many discrepancies with regards to deductibles, insurance and co-pays. They wanted to take a ridiculous amount of money up front without actually calling insurance. In addition, was threatened by front office (while at the office) that if I decided to go home instead if staying for appt that I would still be billed for an office visit. It's sad when staff experience affects review b/c the Dr. was kind but will never return or recommend.

This was my first visit. He did a thorough examination of my feet and noted every little detail. This was a good start. However, prior to departing, he attempted to sell me numerous foot products in which you can buy like products OTC. He also wanted to schedule me to be cast for orthotics in his office vs, going through my Ins carrier which would have cost me mega bucks and made mega bucks for himself instead. Impression: bottom line; money over patient care.........

I would not use this doctor. I attempted to do a first visit with him and ended up walking out of the office after sitting in the waiting room/examination room for over an hour! The ladies at the front desk were very nice, but the practice obviously has issues with scheduling and patient management. There are enough other options in the area that this guy is not worth waiting on.
