Dr. Cox is phenomenal! He is always engaging, professional, and thorough in his dispensing of information. Additionally, he always takes the time to ensure that I am understanding of my current situation along with the expectations for my ongoing service. Lastly, it is my personal belief that Dr. Cox is the gold standard of physicians and surgeons and should be held as a model for how patient-doctor relationships should be began, nurtured, and maintained.
