Verified Patient Reviews
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 to you". 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 seems to 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.
She was thorough and asked good questions in trying to problem-solve the issues that I was dealing with.
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 the clinic was very clean. Best "urgent care center" I've ever been in.
This doctor is very good. She spends a good amount of time with her patients and answers questions well. Wait time was very minimal. Highly recommend!
Dr. Cox is very professional with an excellent bedside manner. She takes the time to update herself on her patients before she enters the exam room. She listens and answers all questions without any signs of irritation that the questions were asked.
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 minor skin 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 and made 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.
Dr. Cox is extremely knowledgeable and answered all my questions thoroughly and accurately. She was very patient with me during the entire appointment and I never felt rushed at all. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a primary care physician!
Dr. Cox was incredibly attentive and gave me a since of security by giving the impression that she will do everything in her power to give me the best care and treatment possible and available.
I thought she was very thorough and took the time to really listen to me, and talked to me like I am an intelligent person capable of making informed decisions about my health :)
It was a good visit, she seems really nice and asked smart and thoughtful questions
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 answered all 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 think she was great!!
Although the wait was slightly long, I definitely recommend Dr. Cox. I chose her because of the other comments and reviews on ZocDoc and she did not disappoint! She was very nice, caring, and definitely went out of her way to listen to and address all of my concerns.
Dr. Cox truly cares about her patients. She is thorough, caring, and has a great bedside manner.
Dr. Cox was prompt, professional and very kind. She recommended alternative tests for what I was asking, which made more sense from a medical perspective - this is what we want from our doctors! Fast and easy results. Highly reommend
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 incredibly underserved 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.
She is thorough and conservative, but in a good way. Cares about the well-being if her patients and spent longer than average time with me p.
Dr. Cox is very attentive and helpful. She listened to me well and made me comfortable. I highly recommend her.
Doctor Cox provided excellent service. She was patience in answering all of my questions and she left me feeling informed. I would recommend her and I will see her again.
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 in the 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.
She actually LISTENS to your concerns and then will make an assessment
Dr Cox was great. She took a lot of time to ask me about my medical history and to answer my questions. She walked me the steps of my procedure and asked several times if I was doing ok.
Dr. Cox is professional, engaging and thorough. She always starts out by reviewing what happened during the last visit and takes time with each question or concern--fully addressing and giving options.
Dr. Cox is very professional and kind. I have been seeing her for over a year a primary care doctor and will keep going to her because I know I am in good hands
Professionalism, very please.
Dr. Cox is an excellent doctor. She's detailed oriented & very organized. She was informative & really explained things to me during my appointment. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing doctor!
Dr. Cox was so great and helpful at my appointment. I had a lot of questions and she was calm and patient while explaining and answering all of them. She was great, as was everyone else who helped me in the office. I had an afternoon appointment and I was worried I would be waiting for hours in the office but I was seen promptly. I would definitely go back.
She was very helpful & kind.
Good appointment but waited an hour between the time I arrived and when I saw the doctor. Had a 12pm appointment and didn't see doctor until ~12:55.
Appointment went. I was pleased that Dr Cox remembered my from my previous appointment. I followed the Dr's advice and the results were successful removal of ear wax and return of my hearing.
Dr Cox was very professional and thorough in her examination of me.
Very thorough, great bedside manners, very helpful.
Love her she's one of the best, I talk to her about anything she so sweet and caring.
Dr. Cox was great and addressed all my concerns in a kind way. However, the wait time was a little long and the nurse (white with a European accent) who escorted me to the room was extremely rude and tried to tell me I couldn't have one of my concerns addressed in this visit and tried to convince me not to say anything. She was very oft putting but luckily the Dr. made up for it.
Overall good first visit! The office staff were nice. Dr. Cox spent plenty of time with me, was very nice, fully addressed my issues and answered my questions. I did have to wait for about 45 minutes to see her, but they have good WiFi and I was able to work during that time (and Dr. Cox apologized for the wait).
i wasn't impressed with the level of customer service... it left much to be desired... i probably will not return to this location unless i'm in dire need... the doc wasn't too bad... i'd recommend her...
I think that she was very informative and attentive to my needs and questions.
The only down-side is that I waited over an hour (with an appointment). Otherwise, the doctor was professional and friendly, the office was clean and organized, and everything went well.
She was very helpful and compassionate and the nurse who saw me beforehand was exceptional also. Great job, thank you!
I liked Dr Cox and really respected her process and opinions. She was very thorough, demonstrated a very deep well of experience and knowledge, and worked with me to come up with a long term plan. I didn't mind the long wait. Location is very convenient to metro. Desk staff was very efficient.
She accepted me as a new patient right away :) Very nice, straight forward, and involved.
Really attentive and detailed doctor. She carefully investigated current medical issues and very happy to have her as a GP.
I was called back right away (didn't even finish filling out the preliminary paperwork before they called my name). After initial triage I waited about 10 minutes for Dr. Cox. She was friendly and welcoming. My appointment was at 1:30 and I was out of there by 2:00, which I appreciated.
I would go back!
Dr Cox gives the patient the time they deserve!!!
Dr Cox was very cordial, throrough and professional.
I really appreciated the care and attention I received from Dr. Cox and the staff, including the phlebotomist and Physician's Assistant. Everyone was very friendly, too!
Dr Cox was very calming, and clearly very informed. I very much appreciated her insights.
She is awesome
Provider is great, but wait once in exam room was long
Dr. Cox is very attentive and knowledgable. I felt like she spent a lot of time with me and really listened to my concerns. I've already recommended her to friends. Plus, the office is just a short distance from the metro, which makes it very convenient!
She was great - very helpful and attentive
Dr. Cox was caring and thorough. She provided excellent care.
I really enjoy her she was fast friendly and answe all question
Very welcoming, calm, asked great questions and took notes on my answers on paper (not while staring at a computer screen).
Very empathetic, professional, and helpful.
Very nice, and very informative
I first went for a physical and she is now my primary doctor. Dr. Cox really takes her time, she asks questions and listens attentively and I appreciate that. Friendly, courteous, and professional. I'd definitely recommend.
Although the wait time between being seen by the nurse and being seen by Dr. Cox was a bit excessive, she was very nice and asked me lots of questions. She didn't rush me out and answered all my questions. Would recommend! Glad I went to her.
Dr. Cox is a skilled, compassionate professional - I couldn't speak more highly of her. Definitely recommend!! :)
Great doctor. takes time to listen to questions and provides insightful answers. did not feel rushed and addressed my questions.
One of the best physicians I've seen. Had my first visit and am so happy with the whole experience. Highly recommend Dr. Cox.
Dr. Cox was very friendly, asked questions and answered all of my questions. She was helpful in providing me with a referral for another speciality and made the experience overall comfortable.
Dr. Cox was very attentive, not rushed, pointed questions, follow up questions for clarification and most importantly she did a synopsis of what was discussed, what she was going to provide, any work she was going to preform, the purpose of these things, and what I can expect going forward. Clean/Modern office space, other staff members were professional, courteous, and respectful.
Very caring and concern doctor, make sure patient get what is needed.
She was very thorough and caring. I felt very comfortable and could tell she was listening and evaluating. Best doctor I have been to in DC!
Always very friendly, personable, and professional. The wait times can be pretty long but everyone in the office is fantastic. I will be so sad to move away from this awesome facility.
I am pleased with the way Dr. Cox informed me and gave me tips on who to handle my condition.
Dr. Cox is very professional and takes care of all my health care needs. She reminds me when blood work is due and other test related to my health.
She was very kind and understanding. Very attentive and helpful as well!
Dr. Cox was excellent - she really took the time to listen to my concerns and did not rush through our appointment in any way.
Great doctor! very professional and patient. She responded to all our questions and took her time. She my mom doctor but I will be switching to her as well.
It was successful and informative.
Dr. Cox is very thorough in her examination of your 'personal' care. She takes time to explain the lab results and will prescribe medication for your issues and monitors for any changes. Although she is a stellar professional, it is coupled with warm compassion. She is a five star doctor.
I am very comfortable with Dr. Cox
She was clear, direct, and curious. She explained what she was doing clearly. The nursing staff and assistants were also goodnatured and competent, and the front desk staff was friendly. My only complaint: a pretty long wait.
The facilities are clean, modern design. The doctor's assistants or nurses were very nice to me. Dr. Cox was friendly and informative. I gave her honest answers and she gave me straightforward feedback. The paperwork was also pretty easy. Only a few sheets and two of them were basically signature pages. This was my first time there, so the quicker I can get through that paperwork, the better.
Doctor Cox was excellent. She saw me right away and answered every question I had with patience. I left the office feeling informed and I highly recommend her. I look forward to scheduling appointments with her in the future.
It was amazing!
She always show caring and compassion.
Very nice and thorough!
I thought Dr. Cox was great. She was very professional, thorough, a good listener, and cognizant of my time (I came in before work, so had a little bit of time crunch). The last time that I went to Metro, with an appointment, I waited for 1 1/2 hours, so this was a significant improvement on my last visit.
She was very helpful and knowledgeable on the issue. I felt very comfortable speaking to her
Very personable approach, thank you!
Dr. Cox was great!
Great Doctor I use dr. Cox as a walk-in patient and from that point I just knew I had to have her as my primary primary doctor so I made sure when I set the appointment that I set with her even though the appointment I made had to be set 2 months in advance.
I use to go to Unity clinic before seeing Dr. Cox, she sees me for medical reasons but always check in on my mental health which makes me feel very safe to confine in her if ever I was to feel not safe or a danger to my self or others that's how important she is to me.
Good bedside manner and very thorough in her exam.
Dr. Cox and the staff were very pleasant. They did not make me feel rushed nor did they make me feel like I was wasting their time. Dr. Cox talked to me about my concerns and asked a lot of follow up questions in order to determine appropriate tests to perform for a diagnosis. I highly recommend Dr. Cox!
I was disappointed that I wasn't seen until 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. Also, I could hear the MA and the physician talking about me through the door- it made me feel disrespected to hear them talking about me when I could have given my own history to the doc more efficiently and less judgmentally
she listens to you makes you feel welcomed not like oh im a dr u dont know anything love the visit
Doctor was great but other office staff were absolutely terrible. I repeatedly asked how much the services would cost and the answer I received was, "I'm not sure, you'll get a bill in the mail." For someone paying out of pocket, this type of response was scary and unfair. I was told to come back the next day to finish my visit (needed an X-ray) and I was promised the technician would be available. When I got there the next morning, I was told the technician wouldn't be in all day. Dr. Cox was lovely but I would NEVER make another appointment at this facility.
Wonderful and patient. Got seen right away and answered all my questions.
Very thorough. Listened carefully. Smart.
Dr. Cox was kind, helpful and caring. She was very thorough and I will definitely return!
Office personnel a little abrupt, but Dr. Cox is caring, attentive, and practical. Phlebotomist was wonderful!
Easy to set up appointment. Recommended.
