dr Cox went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable in an emergency surgery situation. follow up care was top notch as well.


There should be more doctors like Dr. Cox. He clearly loves what he does and cares for his patients. He happened to be on call the day I went into the ER with a blocked colon and I am so thankful for the care I received from him.


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.
