Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I came to see Dr. Cox after an unpleasant experience with another DC psychiatrist. I couldn't be happier that I made the decision to leave my previous mental health provider. Dr. Cox is so easy to speak with. I really enjoyed my time with him. I felt he listened to me completely, and actually cared about what I had to say. Fantastic doctor!

Dr. Cox is an outstanding psychiatrist. He is very knowledgeable in his field which is no surprise considering -- in addition to his private practice -- he teaches at Georgetown & Johns Hopkins. He is an excellent clinician, very easy to talk to, a good listener, explains things very well, and is just an all around nice guy. I would absolutely recommend him to family or friends without hesitation.
