Skilled, smart.... and worked with my weird schedule! Had my meniscus surgery Monday morning at 8:00 a.m. and am completely healed in less than a week! Great team too. Great to work with someone who LOVES what they do!

LOVE this Doctor! He has replaced both my knees and he is warm, caring and I recovered in no time with no complications... BEST ever!!!!! I would recommend him to anyone considering ortho surgery and yes I would trust him with my precious family and friends!
in Carlsbad, CA |
Dr. Cohen has a wealth of knowledge and practice in orthopedic surgery, which he pairs with a warm & welcoming personality that makes you feel cared for the moment you walk into his office. He promptly identified the scope of my patellar tendon rupture and he clearly explained both the repair and the road to recovery. His passion for his work was clear from day 1, and he places the needs of his patients first. I saw him on a Monday and he repaired my knee 2 days later, never skipping a beat.
