Dr. Cohen was wonderful! He explained my son's surgery and made sure we we're comfortable with what was going to be done. Then post OP, he (and his team) made sure to check on my son and give us updates on how his recovery would look like.

Wonderful doctor who is compassionate and extremely knowledgeable!! We couldn’t have asked for a better doctor to care for our son! He went above and beyond to make sure we understood what was going and called afterwards to follow up and check on our son! We were blessed to have him!

He’s the best doctor I’ve ever had. He remembers his patients and that’s something you find rare in a big hospital. He’s very kind genuine human being. He makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. He always makes sure that you are okay. Every visit he’s always told me that I could call him if anything else. I’m glad to have had him as my surgeon for my brain surgery. He did beyond an amazing job and had me smiling before surgery. He’s amazing!

Dr. Cohen is an incredible surgeon. He performed cranial surgery on our 3 month old son and the results are incredible. Dr. Cohen explained all our options to us in great detail and made sure we were on the same page with him when making decisions. The team at Hopkins was great from start to finish. We requested surgery to be scheduled incredibly quick and everything went flawlessly. We are extremely grateful for the talents of Dr. Cohen and his team. Thank you for all you did for our family

This man saved our son’s life! Dr. Cohen is amazing with our son, he really knows how to talk to children. He was honest, up front, and compassionate. To top it off he has a wicked Elvis Presley collection.

Our lives changed for the better because of Dr. Cohen, there is not enough words to thank him. He and his team are truly excellent.

Is it possible to leave six stars? Or seven? Dr. Cohen ranks off the charts. He is an incredible compassionate and skilled surgeon, and comforted and reassured our family throughout the entire surgical process, as well as before and after. He and his wife and the entire pediatric neurosurgical team are incredible. He answered all of our questions in a calm manner and his demeanor gave my son strength to recover well. We simply love Dr. Cohen and cannot recommend him highly enough.
