Dr. Cohen's Care Philosophy

As a urologist specializing in reconstruction and complex bladder issues, I enjoy listening to my patients, discovering their needs, and tailoring treatment options to best serve each individual. Very often, patients with bladder symptoms are unable to enjoy things which others may take for granted, and this impacts their quality of life. My job is to work with each person to discover what their needs are, and to offer treatments to improve their quality of life.

    I fly all the way from Alaska to have my Urology work done here. Dr. Cohen is excellent. He is up on the latest techniques, efficient and effective with his interventions. I trust him completely. I recommend him with great confidence.
    in Bristol, VA |
    Dr. Cohen and his staff are outstanding. The office staff is friendly, helpful and very accommodating. Usually I have waited less than 10 minutes and one time was called 5 minutes before my scheduled time! I chose Dr. Cohn because of his reputation after researching the internet for a urologist who does a new procedure called a Urolift. He was the closest doctor within 125 miles of where I live that does this procedure. OUTSTANDING PHYSICIAN!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM!!!

    Dr. Cohen seems to genuinely care about his patients in a world where most medical professionals try to rush you out. I have been through several urologists throughout the years and I found him to be the best overall.
    Waynesville, NC |
    Dr. Cohen offered several possible interventions and helped me select the most appropriate. He has seen me for an office visit as often as I have needed without ever questioning my request for an office visit. I have trust in his surgical abilities as well as his in-depth knowledge of urological issues.

    Took the time to listen, really listen to what I and my wife's questions were. Explanations were through, given in a language we could understand. Was up to date with recent development of my condition. Careful consideration was given for my other medical conditions (MS)
    in Brevard, NC |
    Dr.Brian Cohen has a most impressive CV. He and his entire staff are extremely pleasant and will attempt to move up your scheduled appointment should a cancellation occur. His nurse Beth is a personable and caring heath care professional as is Dr. BRIAN COHEN .His front end staff are very compasionate and make a stressful situation much easier on the patient and family members.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRACTICE and THIS DOCTOR!
    Fairview, NC |
    He really listened to what I told him. I was skeptical because of another Dr. diagnosis several years ago for kidney stones and he understood. Very friendly.
    in Asheville, NC |
    He did not seem too interested in hearing my comments. He seemed to have his mind made up regarding my status by report faxed to his office by my Internist's information. I had a UTI, but Dr. Cohen did not catch it nor did he give me the results from the urine sample taken at their office. I receive confirmation of the UTI from my internist. I felt rushed.

    Dr. Cohen says...

    I undertook an extra year of training called a fellowship year. During this year I gained additional training and expertise in caring for patients with complex bladder problems, prolapse, incontinence, and patients with neurologic issues that affect their bladder function. I am happy to share my expertise and to offer people in Western NC new treatments for their urologic problems that were recently unavilable.
