Dr. Cox is fantastic. Very friendly, personable, knowledgeable. Explains things well and also presents options and allowed me to take part in choosing how to proceed, as far as doing an MRI, physical therapy, meds, a joint injection. Would definitely return for any continued issues with my shoulder or anything else in the future.

Dr Cox is not only an exceptional clinician, but a great person to interact with. Friendly, honest, efficient with a great sense of humor. He also worked me in on a short notice to help before a last minute trip I had.
