Dr. Cohen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cohen "Devora Cohen, M.D.’s medical training began when she was 10, the year her father started medical school. He brought her to classes with him, taught her how to suture and dissect, and became his study partner, using flash cards to help him prepare for exams. Today, she has over 20 years of family medicine experience and continues to have a deep love for practicing medicine. Listening to her patients tell their personal story, helping them solve their problems and improve their health and well-being is what drives her. Dr. Cohen prides herself on being empathic, enthusiastic and practical. Her philosophy is that medical care should be compassionate, evidence-based, comprehensive and collaborative, with the medical team and patients working together to create a “Medical Home.” In her spare time, Dr. Cohen enjoys being active with her husband and two children. She relishes being outside and likes to hike in the Santa Monica Mountains with friends. Her hobbies include cooking, knitting and visiting art museums. With cousins and friends located all over the world, she enjoys the opportunity to travel internationally. Dr. Cohen attended University of California San Diego School of Medicine and did her Internship at University of California Irvine Medical Center. She was former Assistant Clinical Professor at UCLA and has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Dr. Cohen has special interest in dermatology and gynecology. Dr. Cohen realizes through the experience of her patients, friends and family members how important it is to have an advocate in the health care system. She would like to explore ways to improve the health care system so that it can become more patient-centered, and is excited that Providence Saint John’s Santa Monica wants to be a partner in that goal.
