About Alinda R. Cox, MD

  • Dr. Cox’s passion is to go on medical mission trips. She has been to Ghana, India, the Dominican Republic, Peru, and Haiti, providing medical care to those underdeveloped countries, and believes that those who have privilege should help those who are underprivileged. Dr. Cox enjoys staying physically fit, and says “my sport is basketball!”

I chose medicine and particularly OB/Gyn because I enjoy interacting with people and their families. I love the science of diagnosing a problem and ultimately helping cure a disease. In no other specialty are two lives being taken care of at one time. I thoroughly enjoy this challenge.

    While there are many options for my health care, I appreciate Dr. Cox and her consistency in providing a safe, well informed visit. She shows she cares and is patient. The nurse and office staff are friendly and attentive. Keep up the excellent service. I do tell others about you all. Thank you.

    Dr Cox very warm & professional, made me feel comfortable. Was a quick & preferred longer visit but it was towards the end of the day. Felt lucky to snag this visit with her when I did.

    I don’t like the new or old rule regarding a pop esmere or papa Nicolau test is no longer the insurance will pay for the test, for a 65 to 70 or older person, only if you have female medical issues
