Dr Cohen was very reassuring and explained what I can expect with my frozen shoulder issue. He also gave me exercises to help and will be monitoring my progress. Dr Cohen's knowledge about my issue and his manner of making me feel better about the long healing process ahead was what I appreciated most. He made me feel like I would have an expert to turn to with any questions along the way.

Highly recommend... After having rotator cuff surgery I was only in pain for one day…I attest this to Dr Cohen’s ability to perform the procedure and his experience... Many people in physical therapy with the same procedure I had were in pain for weeks… My cuff was 100% torn plus I had 2 bone spurs and a bicep tear, so this was not a routine procedure in anyway...thank you Dr. Cohen!

I have used Dr. Cohen for two serious rotator cuff surgeries and one knee replacement. He has always been an excellent surgeon, caring provider who listens and responds to my concerns. I don't trust many doctors. I do trust him.

My first visit. He left me with a good impression. If I follow his advice to the letter, I'm certain my bursa strain will heal 100%. That is the key to success.

Dr. Cohen listened carefully to my concerns. He had given me a few options on what I could do to try and alleviate some of my pain. He also told me the kind of surgery he felt would be best for me if I so chose to opt for it. He was through in explaining where my pain was coming and why I was having it. He told me what I should not be doing in order to avoid making it worse. He gave me more than ample time to ask questions and for him to answer them with answers that I could understand.
