Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure.

Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

Dr. Cox was amazing! I'm new to Texas and was skeptical about seeing a doctor that didn't really know me. Dr. Cox listened, assessed, and collaborated with me to place my health at the forefront. I was shocked by his kindness because it wasn't what I expected. I wish every doctor approached their patients like Dr. Cox.

Dr Cox is the best doctor I've seen in my 69 years. He really listens to me. I've had a medical issue for about 5 years. Other doctors just give me new pills to take which have a new set of side effects. It's probably a side effect from one of my meds that's causing the problem in the first place! Dr Cox listened to me and understood that this issue was causing physical and psychological problems for me. I asked him to actually do tests to try to figure out what's causing the problem. He's running several tests and I feel confident that he will find the source of the problem. I have a great deal of respect for Dr Cox and I recommend him to everyone.
