Very pleased with the entire process
“I am a 29 year old with three children. One c-section in 2012 and 2 VBACS in 2013 and 2016. I was new to the Baton Rouge area and saw Dr. Gary Cox by recommendation of a family friend. I was able to see Dr. Cox within a few days of scheduling my initial consultation. I did not wait long in the waiting room nor did I have to wait long for Dr. Cox to come into the room to begin the appointment. My husband and 2.5 year old daughter attended the appointment with me. Sometimes I feel it’s not appropriate to bring children to appointments, but in this situation, I needed my husband to watch our daughter as well as be at the appointment with me. Dr. Cox and his nurse, Christi, were very welcoming and he was pleased to see my daughter. I was in the market to get a tummy tuck and possibly a breast augmentation. One of the best qualities about Dr. Cox is that he is realistic and he is honest. He doesn’t give false hope and he doesn’t promise something he knows is not attainable. We made small talk in between him examining me and even in my most vulnerable state of mind, I was so incredibly comfortable with Dr. Cox. You can tell that he is very passionate about his job and he is exceptionally compassionate for his patients and their families. I knew that Dr. Cox was an experienced board certified plastic surgeon and I had just assumed that experience came with a hefty price tag. I had called around to a few different plastic surgeon’s just to get a baseline price for an abdominoplasty and the prices quoted were unrealistic. Dr. Cox is able to operate at his office-based surgery center that is focused on providing patients with the highest quality care, privacy, convenience and cost savings in a safe outpatient environment. I felt the price was reasonable and much more affordable considering the years of experience Dr. Cox has. He also offers a discount for paying cash versus paying with credit.
The day of my surgery I was very nervous and Dr. Cox could tell. Dr. Cox was always empathetic of my feelings and had no problem listening to my fears. He reassured me he would take good care of me and that I was in good hands. The entire staff was very welcoming and nice.
I ended up having a tummy tuck, muscle repair and liposuction. I am now 29 days post operation and I could not be happier. I know there is still some swelling, but I know it will go down over time. I am very pleased with the entire process. If i could give Dr. Cox 10/5 stars I would!”
