in Orange, CT |
Dr Cohen was excellent every step of the way. He was very clear in what to expect post surgery and about what restrictions I would have. I appreciated that I never felt like he was pushing a surgical interventi. He worked with me and my lifestyle. I couldn't say more about him. In the end surgery was the best choice and I'm glad I did it.

Dr. Cohen preformed distal clavicle resection on both of my shoulders 5 years ago. He fixed me! I now have great range of motion and am pain free. Great bedside manor too.
in Hamden, CT |
I had injured my knee at work and suffered a partially torn meniscus. Dr. Cohen immediately diagnosed my pain correctly and thoroughly explained my injury. He later performed a partial meniscectomy and I was back to work two months later after a great deal of hard work. It's been 6 months since the surgery and my knee is still getting stronger every day. I'm able to do all the things I became accustomed to before the injury and maintain a very active lifestyle and profession. Thanks Doc

Successful surgery for a torn rotator cuff. Dr Cohen is very easy to talk with, addressing all my concerns. I never felt rushed. He explained the surgery, what to expect and the recovery time. I felt I made an informed decision. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

Dr. Cohen repaired my shoulder (AC separation) after attempts at PT were unsuccessful. I have no complaints. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.
in Bethany, CT |
I have a very physical job and was referred to Dr Cohen by Dr Ferrucci in the same group when it was determined that I needed to have shoulder surgery for a torn rotator cuff. My experience with Dr Cohen was excellent- he was progressive yet conservative, thorough, professional and personal. I did choose to use Amity PT for PT (convenient, past exp) but my experience with the whole office was great. His asst. Regina was excellent, responsive and timely in getting paperwork done as needed.
in Guilford, CT |
Dr. Cohen was recommended to me by someone who knew his background experience. I had a total shoulder replacement by DR. Cohen this past October. The surgery was successful and three months later my range of motion is terrific. My experience went smoothly and I am completely pain free. Dr. Cohen was attentive, informative, pleasant and accommodating. I felt he genuinely cared about me. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic surgery. STAR therapy for P.T. was excellent.
