Congratulations Dr. Cox! By Emilio Justo on August 07, 2015



Dr. Misty Cox!

A year ago this August, we welcomed a new optometrist,

Dr. Misty Cox, to our practice.

We love all of the positive feedback we receive daily about our talented doctor with the Southern accent, sweet demeanor and deep desire to educate and advocate for every patient.

In the year she has been with us, Dr. Cox has begun presenting for Sun Health a free public education program called The Aging Eye. During a one hour presentation, she provides detailed education as to how to best care for our eyes as we age.

And recently, we are excited to congratulate Dr. Cox on some very exciting news...................her engagement to the man of her dreams! On behalf of our entire team, we wish to congratulate Dr. Cox and her fiancee on their engagement, and wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.

I invite you to take a moment the next time you see Dr. Cox and congratulate her as well, both on her one year anniversary with our Practice as well as her exciting new future with her fiancee.

We truly appreciate you, Dr. Cox!

- Emilio M. Justo, M.D., Medical Director


To celebrate, I want to share some highlights among the reviews from those who have had the opportunity to come see our talented optometrist:

"My dad is 98 and needed to see a Doctor immediately. Dr. Cox not only fit him in, but gave him the attention he needed. Dr. Cox has the bedside manner I wish all Doctors had. My father was taken care of at an amazing facility."

"My cataract surgery was a complete success and I felt no pain during the procedure. I am so satisfied with Dr. Justo and Dr. Misty Cox, I am proceeding with eyelid surgery in a month. Overall confidence!"

"I was very impressed with the professionalism and courtesies shown to me by the staff. I thought Dr. Cox was very personable, professional, and explained all of the procedures during my eye examination."

"Great atmosphere and my visits are very enjoyable. I just would like to know where Dr. Cox gets all of her energy with her great personality!! My appointment yesterday was at 3:30 and I met with her approximately 4:00 and she was so upbeat, like it was the beginning of the day!!! She really exhibits that she truly enjoys her job!!"
