Dr. Hecox & his staff are the friendliest most professional medical office that I have ever been around. After leaving Dr. Hecox\'s office I\'m always lifted up higher than when I arrived. Medically speaking Dr. Hecox & his staff are very knowledgeable but down to earth. Every procedure is done professionally and explained in laymen\'s terms without looking down on me. I recommend Dr. Hecox & his staff to anyone who needs a hand doctor.

I had been struggling with tennis elbow for 5 months. they took x rays and offered a steroid shot. I have heard how much they hurt and dreaded it, however in the way that Dr Hecox administered it, hardly felt it and amazingly enough, the pain and discomfort from the injury was gone within 2 days.

Dr. Hecox arrived very shortly after I was placed in the exam room. Crayd had already been done and he had viewed them prior to seeing me. Listened to the description of my symptoms and provided ready explanations and treatment options. Treatment was done in office and notified to call immediately if any complications or pain did not resolve.
