Voice of the patient
"One thing I have to report about Cox South is the red carpet treatment I received - oh my goodness! Every single person I encountered was truly a wonderful caregiver, super friendly and super nice. What a great experience. I've had lots of different surgeries at Cox and everybody has always been super nice, but this time I was treated like royalty."
