As a family physician I am blessed to have the opportunity to build long term relationships with patients and their families. These relationships allow me to see the big picture. This better aids in setting healthful goals for patients, so as to improve their lives.
As a physician I strive for open communication with my patients built on honesty, compassion, and trust. I hope to relieve pain and suffering, whenever possible. And, if it is God’s will, to heal patients and cure disease. Ultimately, by doing this I am providing quality care, improving health, and bringing joy to my patients’ lives.
I thoroughly enjoy caring for all ages. From a baby with a simple cold to the elderly, who often have long lists of challenging medical problems, I love interacting with each individual. Being a doctor allows me to help people in many unique ways. Patients can become overwhelmed, when receiving information from various sources including their multiple specialists. I enjoy and am here to help patients to interpret and combine this information into something understandable and useful. Improving communication, understanding, and education is a role I take very seriously.
Prevention is also vitally important if we are to live longer and, more importantly, healthier lives. Cancer screening, immunizations, diabetes and cholesterol screening are routinely performed at Cox Family Practice.
I graduated from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology in 1995 and received my Medical Degree from Wright State University School of Medicine in 1999, also in Dayton, Ohio. I completed my family practice residency in Akron, Ohio at Akron City Hospital Summa Health Systems in 2002. I have been very pleased with my choice to live in North Carolina. I have worked in Asheboro, NC since 2002 and I am very happy to call the Triad my home.
I relocated to this wonderful state from the bitter cold of Ohio and thoroughly enjoy the beautiful North Carolina weather and country. I love the mountains and the ocean and am able to easily get to both. I have been blessed to fall deeply in love and marry a perfect southern gentleman, William Damon Cox, of Randleman, NC. I have two wonderful children. Nicolas Austin is 10 years old and Sydney Danielle is 8 years old. I could not be happier with or prouder of my family and my new home state.
I enjoy being a physician and I love helping patients to be healthier by listening to their needs and by working to combine my knowledge of medicine with their knowledge of their bodies and minds. I find most people are shocked by how approachable I am and open I am to listening to them. I hope that you find this, as well, if you choose to make Cox Family Practice your medical provider.
