Dr. Cox has a great way of communicating w/ my daughter. He always shares a lot of valuable information.


He is the best. He is very friendly and very patient with my kid. We always feel so much relieved after we meet him anytime my kid gets sick.


We had to see Dr. Cox because my sons regular pediatrician was not there for a sick visit. We liked him a lot. He had a connection with the kids and had a really good bedside manner. He seem to be knowledgeable about us coming in for a strep infection twice in two weeks. The biggest thing is that my son was receptive to him in his manner.


Dr. Cox is great! He handles our baby with care and is very good at a explaining great detail to any questions we have.


Great knowledgeable Doctor. My normally shy kid has easy time talking to him. I always feel good about taking my kid to his practice.

Dr. Cox has been my children's pediatrician for over 18 years. He has always been a caring and trustworthy doctor. We all love him. I would recommend him to all of my own dearest friends to care for children from newborns to teens. He has been a fantastic provider.


We've been seeing Dr. James Cox for the past 15 years. He is an excellent doctor and has the best bedside manners. He's personable, but competent and a doctor you trust to look out for the best in your child's health.


(Dr. Cox) We have been at this practice for more than 20 years. Would never go anywhere else.


Love love love Dr. Cox and the entire staff at Children's Medical Group. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly and I've never felt rushed yet somehow we never have to wait for long either. The doctors and nurses really take the time to listen to your concerns and value you as the expert in your child's care. When my daughter had an asthmatic episode they responded quickly and with such great care and concern. We will continue to refer all of our friends and family!


Best pediatric group in town! Dr. Cox has been my son's doctor for over 11 years and he sees my daughter sometimes too. Very caring staff and thankful for Doctors who know my kids. I highly recommend this pediatric group.
