Doctor Percival "Perry" Cox is a doctor at Sacred Heart in Scrubs played by John C. McGinley. Dr. Cox keeps a rough exterior and is very sarcastic even though he's always making his decisions to best help patients.
J.D. always looks up to Cox as a mentor but he preetends to hate J.D., even though he deep down things he's a good doctor. He is an avid sports nut and frequently is seen wearing a Detroit Red Wings jersey.
He was the interim Chief of Medicine after Dr. Kelso retired and before Dr. Maddox took over. He is expected to take back over this season.
Dr. Cox: Oh gosh, I guess, I became a doctor because ever since I was a little boy I just wanted to help people. I don't tell this story very often but I remember when I was seven-years old I one time I found a bird that had fallen out of its nest so I picked him up and brought him home and made him a house out of an empty shoebox and hahaha oh my God... Oh... I became a doctor for the same four reasons everybody does: chicks, money power and chicks. But since HMOs have made it virtually impossible to make any real money which directly affects the number of chicks who come sniffin' around and don't ask me what tree they're barkin' up because they're sure as hell not pissin' on mine and as far as power goes, well here I am during my free time letting some thirteen-year old psychology fellow who couldn't cut it in real medicine ask me question about my personal life. So here's the inside scoop there pumpkin, why don't you go head and tell me all about power
