Doctor Cohen is a brilliant physician. This man saved my wife's life. He is thoughtful and caring and responsive to his patients. I highly recommend him.

He should be in a research lab not in front of patients. Lousy bedside manner.

I'm surprised about the other review and his conservative treatment. Yes, he is conservative, but that is because the medications for MS can be risky in and of themselves and it's important to see what works for individual patients before rushing into medications that may not be necessary. He's the best world-renowned neuro in the country. He will tell you the truth, when we tend to do our own diagnoses. I saw him for 16 years before I recently moved -- and cried when I knew I wouldn't have him.

He is notorious for not treating his patients. I have run into 14 ex patients of his, so far, that had the same miserable experience. His watch it, wait and see conservative approach causes irreversible disability. He enjoys scare tactics to try and keep patients and I hope you heed this warning to get away from him as quickly as possible. Find a neurologist you can have a real connection with. Love and best wishes to you all ?
