in Silver Spring, MD |
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.
Washington, DC |
I was referred to Dr. Cox by a friend and my internist. They both had wonderful things to say about him, and they were exactly correct. He is a fantastic psychiatrist and a super doctor. His office manager is terrific as well. I happily give his name to family and friends in need.
