Dr Cox was very professional and answered all my questions.

11/29/2016

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.
