Dr. Cox will look at you like he’s listening but in reality he’s off in LaLa Land and has no idea of anything you just said?? When he tries to sums up what you just confided in him it’s like he was having heard a totally different conversation with another person? This happened each time I saw...more

I have only good things to say about Dr. Cox. He is thoughtful and compassionate, timely, really great with refilling meds, returns calls promptly. Pinnacle is a busy office, but I have never felt overlooked or uncomfortable.

I suspect that some of the other negative reviews here are from similar parties.
