Great Doc!

I got severe pancreatitis which ended being necrotic pancreatitis. Dr. Cohen saw me right away when i was in ICU. Was very caring and professional as were all the doctor's in his group. He explained all the possibilities in my prognosis. Was very thorough. Followed me all the through a 4 month process of healing and returning to hospital 3 times for flair-ups. The third being when my JP drain fell out. Surgery removing gallbladder and cleaning up necrotic pancrease. He is the best you can get.

Had bariatric surgery, lost excess weight, blood sugar dropped from sky high to normal. He knows what he's doing. I believe his survival rate is much higher than the norm . I am now healthy, look and feel good. I have recommended him to my daughter. Changed my life.

Horrible!!!!! Gave me an antibiotic he knew I was allergic to. Told him and the hospital that I was allergic to it. Still I got it The allergic reaction caused damage to my right lung. Still can't breath the way I did prior to surgery. Have nurses, Drs. and therapists coming to my home... A short stay in hospital turned into 9 day stay. Went in for hernia operation. Still have the pain and now I can't breath. How would you rate him. Would not recommend him. Don't let him touch you. Beware
The doctor is very knowledgable, professional, take time and care about his patients, very humble. He is passionate about what he's doing and fulfils the true meaning of a doctor.
