Dr Cohen is the best ENT in LA hands down! There are very few, if any ENT doctors out there with his level of specialized knowledge and experience in the county period but to have such expertise and maintain such a warm, humble demeanor with his patients (excellent bedside manner) teamed with a dedication to truly getting to the core of the issues at hand, is a blessing to any patient suffering for years without hope for reprieve. Dr Cohen has literally helped improve the quality of my life by a

I am so impressed with Dr. Cohen. He is a paragon of everything a doctor should be: caring, kind, knowledgeable, attentive, patient, and happy to educate. He is easily one of the best three doctors I have ever seen. His staff is also really warm and professional. Clearly, Dr. Cohen is someone who wants to deliver only the very best of care to his patients.

Doctor Cohen is an excellent physician. He thoroughly explains each procedure. You can ask him any question and will answer you without making you feel like you shouldn't ask. He has great bedside manner. He not only helped my wife and I with our breathing issues in our noses but also did surgery on my wife's thyroid. He's a really good guy.

Dr. Cohen has my absolute recommendation and highest thanks. I immediately noticed his impeccability during our consultation, where he quickly and confidently pinpointed my exact issues and how to fix them. I wish Dr. Cohen could be my life-long doctor for anything and everything! On top of all of this, the cost was surprisingly affordable for myself, having no insurance. Dr. Cohen is clearly a great man, with a passion for his job and a true calling to help people. Thank you Dr. Cohen!

Dr. Cohen is a knowledgeable, professional, and effective doctor. He practices the upmost quality of care and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a specialist in his field. Upon my first visit to his office where I was attended by an equally competent and caring staff, he diagnosed, explained and planned the treatment for sinus issues I'd been experiencing for over a year and went misdiagnosed by other doctors. He performed a successful procedure and restored my health and quality of life.

I would most definitely recommend Dr Cohen to my friends and family. I had a terrible sinus infection that was debilitating. I scheduled an appointment for a consultation after being on antibiotics for a week. He was so helpful, telling me exactly where the infection was coming from and the cause. Unfortunately I have sinus disease and will be having surgery but I know Dr Cohen is the best at what he does, and I look forward to getting back to normal and rid of the infections once and for all.
