    When I first met Dr. Cohen it was on referral from Providence Emergency Medicine in Anchorage. I was in poor shape. My arms and legs were weak to the point of being mostly unusable. The ER diagnosed me as having 4 cervical disks pressing on my spinal cord. Dr Cohen scheduled me for surgery with little wait. I was able to walk out of the hospital less than a week later. 4 level ACDF fixed me up pretty well. Thank You Dr Cohen it was a most wonderful Christmas gift
