Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Cohen did my cataract surgery (both eyes) in April of this year. Went fine and I was very pleased. I especially like the Patient Portal where I can view all my medical records, exam results, etc.

Very intelligent, thorough, precise, and confident. Office staff members are lovely. I saw him on an emergency basis and he didn't hesitate to fit me in.
