Staff very good. Dr. Cox in office and in surgery very good. Now I can see a lot better. Thanks!

Dr. Cox performed eyelid surgery on one eye. He did a fantastic job and it looks amazing. I wanted to get both eyes done but he was honest with me and said that my right eye really didn't need the surgery. I would recommend Dr. Cox.

Being a retired Critical Care RN, I only go to an MD with whom I have worked or one who is recommended by a fellow medical person. My routine Dr. was not available. Dr. Cox's office staff put me in as an add on as it was urgent. I found Dr. Cox to be knowledgeable, informative, takes care of his own patients (even week-ends) and even called me at home to find out how I was. Dr. Cox's dedication and compassion are impressive. Definitely staying with Dr. Cox. Highly recommended!

Dr. Cox was very personable and professional at the same time. His whole interest is what is best for the patient. I would recommend him to anyone as being outstanding in his field.
