It was good. She was knowledgeable and very proffessional but it was her last day so was a little confused why she was seeing new patients. I was given the option of coming back on a different day to see someone that will be there in the future.

With an appointment, I have never had to wait for Dr. Cox. It absolutely blows me away every time. If I'm a walk-in, I've never had to wait very long even though I'm prepared to. Her line of questions to helpdiagnose you are so thorough and she listens until you're finished talking. A lot of doctors don't do that. I really appreciate her. (Her entire team is amazing, right down to the front desk staff.)

Dr. Cox is very thorough and knowledgeable. She looks you in the eye as she speaks and it's easy to see that she really cares about your health. The only downside is the long wait - this has always been anissue. But given Dr. Cox will spend as much time with you as you need, it's understandable that it happens.

I recently had a Sunday appointment with Dr. Cox. She is my primary doctor. She is always detail oriented and takes the time to read the record of her patients before walking into the exam room. I feel fortunate to have found this doctor. I would never give her up.

She is listed under nutritionist but she is only a primary care doctor. I didn't learn this until I arrived at the appointment. At the time of the visit, her staff told me that she should still be able to helpme with weight loss consultation but immediately once she entered the room she said she was unqualified to assist and that there is nothing she can do. I walked out of there with nothing even though I paid for the visit. Her manners were horrible and the experience was awful. I would never see her again.

She seemed uninterested, and hurried, at first. She asked why I was there and when I began to explain my problem, she interrupted me by saying "It has been a long day, just give me two [symptoms]. Whichever is important toyou". I was stunned and felt like walking out, but I was feeling really bad physically. My visit did end on a good and friendly note with her.

Dr Cox is very thorough and always helps to organize my complaints so that I feel heard and my issues are addressed. She practices evidence based medicine, and is open to questions I have based on my own research. She seemsto be a more introverted person with not a naturally warm, inviting demeanor; but it is clear that she has worked on her communication skills and is a good listener. I like this because I tend to be all over the place, and her calm, analytical approach is a good balance for me.

Dr. Cox is a wonderful doctor — very knowledgable, will answer questions and has great bedside manner. But the medical center she works for tends to overbook appointments, which causes a delay.

I was in DC for a business trip and needed to see the doctor - not only was the clinic on Sunday, but they saw me right away when I arrived for my appointment. Everyone was friendly and helpful, and theclinic was very clean. Best "urgent care center" I've ever been in.

Dr. Cox is the rare blend of expertise, professionalism, and amiability. From the get-go it was clear that she cared about her patients and their health. At my first appointment, she provided two prescriptions that really helped with my minorskin irritations - things that my previous physicians either hadn't noticed or cared to address. She is thorough in her questions and responses, and she never makes me feel stupid. In fact, her matter-of-fact and attentive manner makes me feel more comfortable to ask about procedures or even why certain things are done the way they are. This reassures me that she knows what she's doing and that I am being taken care of.

I was very pleased with my visit with Dr. Cox, I was a little late because of trying to get a parking place, however, the front desk receptionist was outstanding. Dr. Cox and the nurse made my appointment very relaxing andmade recommendations for me to consider. She toke the time to listen to me and this was truly a very good experience. I will recommend her to anyone. EXCELLENT APPOINTMENT.

I booked my physical with Dr. Cox based on other Zoc Doc reviews, and they did not lead me astray! This was the most thorough, non rushed appointment I've had. She calmly asked questions to learn my medical history and answeredall of my questions, with great information and suggestions. It was honestly the most pleasant appointment I've had and for once I feel like I may finally have found a PCP who I will feel comfortable with and who pays attention to me, and not just words on a chart. Thank you Zoc Doc community!

I got there a little late due to the crazy morning rush-hour traffic, but Dr. Cox was able to see me anyways, and she was so helpful! I just moved to DC from a completely different area, one that was incrediblyunderserved from a medical perspective, and one in which doctors often didn't have the time to listen to any issues I had that were not immediately pressing. In Dr. Cox's case, however, this is so far from the truth! She listened and took the time to address issues that have been brewing but that I haven't been able to bring up with any doctor in years. I feel like she really cares, and like she really wants what's best for me, and that makes such a huge difference.

Dr. Cox was kind and professional - just what I was looking for - not an "alarmist" but, rather, practical and conservative in her approach. The staff was also very nice, but the wait time was ridiculous. After being put inthe room, I waited for more than forty minutes. My appointment was for 3:45 and I did not see the doctor until 4:45. That's a problem. Also, I was informed that the office would be moving in January - a minor inconvenience (it will be easily metro accessible) as part of the reason I went to this place was that it was so close to home and work.
