Dr. Cox is the most compassionate, knowledgeable yet down to earth physician you will ever meet. He is so kind. My son suffered from extreme anxiety disorder and paranoid schizoaffective disorder. He would not leave his home. At times, he was afraid to be in his home by himself. He could not go to the grocery store. He would experience panic attacks on a regular basis. He did not wish to be around even most immediate family members. He was a very ill individual. His symptoms were not treated correctly until we were able to speak with this physician. Now, he is on the road to the recovery due to accurate treatment. Dr. Cox is an invaluable resource for our community! We absolutely love, appreciate and respect him. His diagnoses and treatments are spot on. If you’re struggling with how to cope with anxiety, fear or panic, please seek assistance. Appropriate treatment will improve your life. Don’t give up! There is support, encouragement and assistance to be found. The medical community should be mentored by this physician.
I Sincerely appreciate Dr. Cox as a person and a Dr. I was having severe panic attacks that seem to come out of no where and for no specific reason. I was able to talk to Dr. Cox and identify potential causes and triggers. Through a combination of deep discussions and some medication I am feeling much much better. My panic attacks included shaking, sweating, coughing, and vomiting. I was also not able to eat and had irrational thoughts. It's a terrible thing. Because of this I lost motivation, including the smallest things such as visiting family and friends. I am happy to say my journey is not over but I am in a much better place. I would encourage anyone having these issues to reach out to a professional and Dr. Cox was a perfect fit for me. His staff is also incredibly friendly and helpful!
I suffer from anxiety, panic disorder and depression. I’ve been a patient of Dr. cox for over 15 years. Whenever I have the slightest set back, I call him, my regiment is tweaked and I’m better. I worked my way off disability SS. Please don’t suffer! Get help! Live your best life!
