Katie P. – Jun 10, 2020

Patient

Dr. Cox completed a septoplasty and turbinoplasty procedure on my nose in December and this was my 3 month follow up appointment (but actually 6 months because of COVID19). He answered any questions I had in regards to regaining complete feeling back, he is very attentive when listening, and very respective of your time and appointment. I have always enjoyed my appointments with Dr. Cox and his assistant, Claire, because they are always so nice and actually there for the patient’s needs. I have already referred some friends and family to him, if they choose to correct a deviate septum.

Dr.Cox is a wonderful doctor with impeccable skill AND integrity! I will always be thankful for his care and that of his staff. I love my fixed nose!

Cami – Jul 07, 2019

Patient

Dr Cox was really great. I went to see him about keloids I got in my ear from ear piercings. I had visited another plastic surgeon about this before who just didn't do anything about it, just wasted my time and money. From the moment I started talking to Dr Cox, I could tell he had experience with keloids. He was very clear about my options and about how he would proceed in my case. Keloids are tricky in that they can easily come back after removal, just because of the nature of keloids. We followed Dr Cox's plan to treat them, and then remove them. It has been a year since then, and the keloids have not come back! I couldn't be happier. Dr Cox was great. He was super responsive to emails, flexible to schedule appointments, and was so accommodating and understanding when it came to the actual surgery (facilities, and cost since I had to pay out of pocket). I am truly grateful, and I honestly recommend him.

J. J. – Jul 05, 2019

I had a wonderful experience throughout my treatment, surgery and post-op appointments. Dr. Cox and his staff were very friendly, listened to my concerns, and exceeded my expectations.

Rafael G. – Jun 28, 2019

Patient

Dr. Cox is a phenomenal surgeon. His diagnosis was carefully done and clearly explained. The surgery was also clearly explained, which avoided any unexpected surprises. He was very considered of my worries about my expected post-op compromised breathing abilities. We ended up using trumpets inside my nose, which gave me great confidence in pursuing the surgery. The nose surgery wet without complication and the post-op healing is better than expected. I never felt any significant pain and can breath so much better now. It was the absolute right decision to get the surgery done. I am very thankful for Dr. Cox's kind and professional service.

Erin C. – Jun 28, 2019

Spent a great amount of time with me and answered all my questions. Everything went very well and he pays attention to detail. He is friendly and caring to his patients. I would encourage anyone who needs surgery to see him.

Anya M. – May 17, 2019

Patient

This was my second surgery performed by Dr. Cox, and once again he has accomplished the seemingly impossible considering the structure and repeated failings of my nose. He's people skills are impeccable, and his work is of course flawless. I find myself recommending all my friends to him when I hear of their deviated septums. My family has counted on him for three nose surgeries now and would gladly do it again.

It was simple enough, I explained my issues with Dr. Cox. He discussed a few options with me and after a few preliminary over-the-counter options, we decided on the best way to help my situation. Thanks to Dr. Cox I can breath much better and as a bonus, my nose looks better than it ever has.

I came to Dr. Cox a few months ago when I was displeased with the hump I had on my nose. At the consultation, he explained exactly what he could do to correct the hump, gave me all of the information I needed and answered all of my questions in every detail. Two months later after surgery and my nose looks better than I ever thought it could. I am more than satisfied with my results and I could not have asked for a better Surgeon to do the job!

Nancy B. – Nov 10, 2018

Patient

I had been to 30 something doctors in a year and a half, with no for sure care plan for this ulcer in my nose. Dr. Cox, went the extra mile to try and find out what was wrong and then to go ahead and take away the bad tissue and do a skin graft. During that year and a half my pain level had been at a 8 and 9 and 10. My pain level is now at a 0, my nose is a little different, but who cares, I am without pain and can resume my life, a busy life!!!! Thanks for helping me get back to living life

Dr. Cox completely rebuilt the entire top half of my ear. He did an amazing job. My ear looks better than I could have possibly imagined. Not only is he an amazing plastic surgeon, but he has the best bedside manners of any doctor Ive ever met. He takes time to explain everything in great detail, and listens to all my concerns. I have never met a doctor that showed such concern, and that I could get in touch with at any given time. He always responds back within a day!! Thank you Dr. Cox!

Angela M. – Oct 26, 2018

I never thought breathing through my nose would be possible again. Then I was referred to Dr. Cox & what a life changing experience this has been. I can breath through my nose (with my mouth closed) for the first time in my life & my nose looks the way it did before I broke it. The results are amazing... better than i could have ever imagined. I am so glad i decided to have surgery I only wish I had done it sooner.

Paige R. – Oct 19, 2018

Every visit and interaction with Dr. Cox was positive and informative. Some doctors are very skilled, some have an excellent bedside manner.... Dr. Cox has it all.

The results of my surgery are better than I even expected! I am so very pleased, and I would highly recommend Dr. Cox to any prospective patient.

I cannot speak enough to how incredible a doctor Dr. Cox has been. He exudes top-notch professionalism and knowledge of his field. But above all, from the instant I first met him, I knew he truly cared for me. I have had doctors who seemed disinterested in my care, but Dr. Cox was always so positive with me and genuinely cared for me as a person rather than just a patient. I would recommend anyone with ENT problems to go to Dr. Cox.

Patient

I had broken my nose two years prior to my surgery. I would have had the surgery much soon if it was not for insurance reasons and being referred to three different doctors before Dr. C. He told me my septum was 98% deviated. I could not breath on the right side at all and my left side collapsed trying to make up for the other. Looking at my nose there was a slight C shape to it. After my surgery my nose was completely straight. All of the nurses and staff were incredibly kind including Dr Cox.

Dr. Cox and his staff were very courteous and professional. I had numerous issues with my nose that required specialized skills as I had a hole in my septum. Dr. Cox was recommended by my ENT in Mobile, Al. He was able to repair my hole and later did surgery to correct a deviated septum. After these two surgeries, I can now breath much easier and I get a greater quality of sleep at night. My nose also looks much better cosmetically than prior.

I would highly recommend Dr. Cox as a surgeon. I had a septorhinoplasty, and within one week I looked great and felt great. I did not realize how bad my breathing was until after the surgery, when I could breathe better, even when the splints were still in my nose. Dr. Cox is professional and spends as much time with you as is needed to fully answer all of your questions. And if anyone is nervous about getting splints removed (as I was), it is not painful at all!!
