I've found this doctor lazy and inefficient, trying to look good, but avoiding doing the care called for as recommended by other doctors, opinionated and apparently purposely unhelpful. Had to go to a new doctor, who did proper testing right away.
I've been a patient of Dr Perlstein's for over 17 years. He is a wonderful man, an outstanding doctor, and I have complete confidence in him.
Does not follow through with patient health, no follow up. Does not respond to Insurance peer to peer review. Unresponsive.
He seemed attentive when you were not feeling good. Made sure to increase my dosage of medicine. However the concern should have been why is this patient feeling so badly, and keeps coming back! Doctor looked at my heart valve and decided that I was okay. Ended up with the valve quitting on me 6 months after my last visit with this doctor. An emergency visit to the ER, open heart surgery. Forty-five days in the hospital. Why did this doctor not know that I had Afib?
Dr. Perlite in is the best physician & man, after Jesus! I speak highly of this Godly man because his expertise, love, concern & COMPASSION towards me was far beyond any Dr I have ever known. For someone as young as me in the midst of all his wonderful elderly patients I was very afraid of the outcome of my tests & any procedures & he comforted me from the 1st day we met, I feel like over the years he is not just treating patients he is building relationships & nothing takes him by surprise. ?
I was referred by my GP since I was occasionally experiencing chest pressure, sometimes radiating to the backs of both arms. Dr. Cohen didn't ask even one follow-up question, such as when it was happening how often, etc. Instead within a very few minutes he ordered a battery of tests including a PET scan. When his office was trying to schedule it at their cardiology center, I was informed the co-pay including injections would be over $1,000. No more symptoms after stopping medication.
I am a new patient of Dr Cohen since November 2015. 5 out of 5 appts and reschedules I was asked to wait well over an hour beyond my appt time. This is disrespectful and inconsiderate. He also didn't appear to be familiar with my history and appears to have misread possibly the urgency of some results of tests. I don't feel one bit of comfort in continuing to see this doctor and I Will Not Be!
My husband had an appointment and waited an hour and 45 minutes to be seen! This is inexcusable as far as I'm concerned. Dr. Cohen himself is a wonderful cardiologist but I won't be coming there and my husband is seriously considering another doctor.
The office staff should CALL patients and let them know the doctor is running that far behind. To make people wait that long shows a real lack of consideration for patients.
Great Doctor, enjoy his attitude and cares about the person
Always takes extra time to make sure all my questions are answered! Amazing, amazing doctor. The only doctor I will travel to AZ (second home) to see, he is THAT good. Very caring, thorough explanations, made me feel confident and safe during my recent procedure- also, the staff at the hospital says he is the best cardiologist there (and they work with dozens of cardiologists from multiple practices- this is very reassuring to me).
I have been a patient of Dr. Cohen's for many years. Speaking as a fellow medical professional, I trust his expertise and opinions. I have and will continue to refer patients to his practice.
