Lincoln Health System is pleased to announce William R. Cox, M.D. FACC has joined Lincoln Medical Group Specialty Associates, a Fayetteville based multi-specialty practice, and expand cardiology coverage for Lincoln Health System.
“The addition of Dr. Cox and his cardiology expertise to our specialty clinic will allow Lincoln County residents the ability to receive specialty care, like cardiology, without the need to travel,” said Lincoln Health System Director of Nursing, Carrie Rogers. “When care is convenient for patients, they are more likely to visit their providers and stay on top of important health issues. The expansion of specialty care services in our community will improve the health of our county.”
Dr. Cox completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Georgia and attended medical school at the Medical College of Georgia. His residency was completed at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio.
After his residency, Dr. Cox joined the US Army Medical Corps where he completed a Cardiology Fellowship at Brook Army Medical Center. He later completed a research fellowship in Interventional Cardiology at Emory University.

Dr. Cox is board certified in general and interventional cardiology and is certified by the Heart Rhythm Society as a cardiac device specialist.
With more than 30 years of experience, Dr. Cox will offer a wide variety of cardiology services in Lincoln County.
