Dr. Cozart has a special interest in non-surgical management of hemorrhoids. Infrared Coagulation (IRC) of hemorrhoids is a non-surgical approach to hemorrhoids that alleviates hemorrhoidal bleeding without the need for surgery.

Dr. Cozart introduced Infrared Coagulation (IRC) of hemorrhoids to Texarkana in 2009 and has since performed over 400 procedures. He and his partners are the only physicians in Texarkana to offer IRC.

Dr. Cozart has numerous publications in peer-reviewed medical journals, including an essay that explores the physician’s response to a patient’s death. This piece was published in The Journal of the American Medical Association and was later featured in the book, A Piece of My Mind, which contains a collection of these essays.

Dr. Cozart strives to provide the best possible care for his patients. He believes that all patients deserve to be treated with love and compassion and that it is always possible to find ways to improve the quality of life. Dr. Cozart is accepting new patients.
