Dr. Cox

"Dr. Cox is the worst Mental Health professional I have ever seen. Despite his low grades I had to start seeing him because I could not find a anyone else taking new patients. Dr. Cox is a crook. One day I stayed an extra 15 minutes and he charged me an extra $100 and labeled it "psychotherapy" after the $86 I already paid upon arrival. this man is a crook and should have his license revoked. I have filed complaints and have asked around to other psychs about him and he's known for this. AVOID"

"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 him? If you are considering setting up an appt with this guy I’d say DON’T!"

Didn't really ask appropriate questions. Everything he said was very confusing; I felt like I was being manipulated. We never focused on my anxiety, which I didn't notice until after I left. Altogether, it was uncomfortable. Also, the office was running one of those aromatherapy diffusers which made it hard to breath, sort of surprising for a health center.

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.

Known for his eloquent writing and IME work, this doctor can brilliantly, manipulatively & gracefully turn you into an entirely different person than you are in reality after speaking to you once. His report broke my heart & my faith in those who take an oath to do their jobs honestly, with good intention and integrity. Highly knowledgeable and experienced, he has used his genius along with his credentials to make an honest, deeply hurting person look like a manipulative, lying user. Devastated.

Dr. Cox repeats the same questions at least twice. He does not dispense drugs for fairly new patients and instead tries to set up more therapy sessions. He does not follow through with what he says. I would never recommend him as a good therapist/psychiatrist.

He makes snap diagnosis without the benefit of full medical records , annoying and unprofessional.

How was your experience with Dr. Cox?

About Me

Dr. Cox prioritizes balanced treatment, integrating both psychotherapy (face-to-face therapy) and medication management into daily practice.  Patients are routinely given a full hour for an intake, and at least half an hour for follow-up visits (only if stable and mainly medication-focused).
