Good Experience, very honest and up front about my condition.




Dr Cox has performed two surgeries on me. I put my life in his hands and he takes good care of me.


Doctor gave a detailed demonstration of changing the wound dressing at home and the reasons why its important to follow each step.


The people at this facility are so sweet,caring friendly and take excellent care of me.


All were good.


I told Dr.Cox that I was putting my life in his & god's hands if I was not comfuble then I wouldn't be doing what I was doing.


All good.


*Dr. Cox - very gentle & listened to me - answered my questions - did not rush me through my visit. Very happy with my first visit with *Dr. Cox.


Dr Cox was very professional and answered all my questions.


The Dr. Never came to speak with me prior to my surgery. He also failed to speak to my husband or any other of my family members after the surgery. Absolutely no bed side manner. All the other physicians came to speak to patients and their families, however he did not. This is my third surgery and he was the only one to have had this practice. Very unprofessional.


good experience
