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.
