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.
in Canyon Country, CA |
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.
