      My L5 had a birth defect and was useless at age 47 - Cohen operated 8-2015. L3 & L4 were both fractured due to the defect at L5. Some doctors wanted to do less invasive laser surgery but cohen said if I did that I would have to have another surgery in a few years, so I allowed him to cut me and do a more invasive surgery. Before my surgery I could not even stand up straight. Im happy w/ my results & Cohen -but my five-day stay at the hospital was disappointing. No room left to tell entire exp

      I have severe spine problems and getting worse since 2008. Pain very bad, quality life not good any more. I am sad and I cried a little. I said to him "please can you help me" He said to me without any eye contact! "I DIDN"T DO THIS TO YOU!" I said to him "I didn't say you did" I didn't know where to turn, go. I left the room to compose myself. Could not stop crying. Went to bathroom so I could compose myself. Back to room he did NOT give me any eye contact only to husband. He was so mean.

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
