Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Cox performed my bunion surgery & I have no more pain. He always takes time to answer all my questions & concerns during my visits.
Buckeye, AZ |
Not good. Everything seemed to revolve around MONEY. Too many discrepancies with regards to deductibles, insurance and co-pays. They wanted to take a ridiculous amount of money up front without actually calling insurance. In addition, was threatened by front office (while at the office) that if I decided to go home instead if staying for appt that I would still be billed for an office visit. It's sad when staff experience affects review b/c the Dr. was kind but will never return or recommend.
We are sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience with our office. We strive to provide patients with the highest quality of care, to get them back to doing whatever they want to do without pain. We do verify all patient's insurance prior to their visit, as a service, whenever possible, so that patients are aware of any deductibles or co-pays for which they are responsible. This allows them to make an informed decision as to what works best for them and their individual circumstance.

This was my first visit. He did a thorough examination of my feet and noted every little detail. This was a good start. However, prior to departing, he attempted to sell me numerous foot products in which you can buy like products OTC. He also wanted to schedule me to be cast for orthotics in his office vs, going through my Ins carrier which would have cost me mega bucks and made mega bucks for himself instead. Impression: bottom line; money over patient care.........
Our goal is to provide treatments that are evidence-based when applicable, to get our patients back to their normal lifestyle as quickly as possible. We provide many different services and products, all of which have been researched, tested, and are of high quality and often provide superior results. We regularly go out to pharmacies, big box stores/Walmart, and shoe stores to help find solutions that are cost effective for our patients and when applicable refer our patients to those sources.

I would not use this doctor. I attempted to do a first visit with him and ended up walking out of the office after sitting in the waiting room/examination room for over an hour! The ladies at the front desk were very nice, but the practice obviously has issues with scheduling and patient management. There are enough other options in the area that this guy is not worth waiting on.
We are very sorry for your inconvenience and wait at our office. We strive to see our patients on time. We try and do all the insurance verifications and authorizations prior to patients visits, but there are times when that is not possible. We ask our patients either fill out the new patient paperwork, before their appointment or arrive early to do so. We strive to do our best and always provide the highest medical care possible for all our patients. We also do treat emergent issues.
