Good.

Dr. Cox greeted me promptly when entered the exam room and handed me a brochure to look over regarding removal of my gallbladder. Although, he answered my questions, I felt he was in a hurry or was ready to move on. He keep running his hand through his hair and bouncing his knee as he sat like he was irritated or preoccupied. Perhaps, this is his norm so my apologies if it is, but it made me a little uncomfortable like my questions were getting on his nerves. I went ahead and scheduled my surgery with him due to the fact, as a surgeon, he has an excellent reputation in this area.
