I trust Dr. Cox. She's very good at explaining any issues and medical concerns that I have. I'm not good at expressing myself. Dr. Cox puts me at ease and she's very understanding. I feel she has me figured out before my appointment. She is very professional. Because of her, I have seen only the best specialists when surgery is needed. Thank God for this wonderful Dr.

While Dr. Cox is very personable and has a good bedside manner, it feels like my some of my concerns are dismissed and that some parts of my exams are rushed through.

I never ever have received a call on my blood work. The last blood work I got shows cholesterol over 300 and still no call. So I'm walking around with cholesterol over 300 and there seems to be no concern. Makes me nervous about how overall how my health is really being looked at.

Thank you for your excellent customer orientated service from all staff members including in person and telephone contacts!

prescription renewals have continued to be a problem. I constantly have to have pharmacy call the office. The office is told to give 90 day supplies and often I go to pharmacy and the office has not contacted them. Very annoying.
100

04/17/2017
[...] I got in to Dr Cox in a very timely manner in a matter of some importance to me.
100

04/15/2017
I am only concerned about the mychart system, because it usually takes longer than two days and often a second message or phone call to get a response. This is true of all providers here, not only this one. The phone system is designed to frustrate and encourage use of mychart due to long waiting times. I appreciate getting test results quickly but sometimes wonder if the provider looked at them or if I am to assume all is well. I rate my provider and the other staff very highly but in pushing us to electronic communication you have made me very frustrated at times.

This experience was somewhat of a nightmare. I injured my back and my primary care doctor recommended x-rays and the x-rays recommended an MRI plus detailed significant issues. Somehow between my primary care doctor, insurance and Inland Imaging things totally unraveled. The communication fell apart. I am finally scheduled for an MRI next week. It's been very frustrating and I am in a lot of pain.

Dr Cox is a very good doctor and listens well to my questions and health concerns. She knows me well and the status of my health. Dr Cox recognized that my heart needed a serious look and sent me to the ER directly from her office. I ended up having a triple by-pass and the aorta valve replaced. I was feeling well at the time except for what I thought was acid re-flux. I also told her I was having knee problems and she had me walk in the exam room and said it was a hip problem and referred me to an orthopedic doc who confirmed her diagnosis and I had a total hip replacement. Dr Cox in my opinion is an excellent physician and listens well to to me as a patient is very good at knowing what is wrong with my health.
