To whom it may concern , Just want to thank everyone working with Dr. Cox because it all works and each and everyone of them took the time to treat me not only medically but as a person like I said you don't run across that very often and that's why I had even stopped seeing doctors for years I pretty much gave up on it but they have touched my heart I have nothing but good things to say and it has definitely gone a long way because people are asking me like I said for his number at his office and I am just so thrilled to tell them of my experience and give them office number thrills me to death I am so so happy with the care that Dr Cox has given me it's a new life !!TYBH
