Would recommend highly. He sees my mother and I feel that he really listens to her. We are really happy with her progress thanks to Dr Cohen and his staff. Nicole is amazing! -Sharon L.

He was very concerned with the symptoms and also put myself and my wife at ease with his demeanor. He said something didn’t add up and asked questions the er didn’t. Apparently one of my neck vessels had torn… nuts right. The care he offered and the correct diagnosis he made in light of the er missing it, my wife and I can honestly say he saved my life. I cant imagine a more thorough doctor that also explained everything to me step by step with a long term plan.
I was in so much pain, my head hurt so bad he's like well it's just a migraine but you know what if you're worried you can go to the hospital and get all the test done which I was happy about. But when I was there I was still crying because nothing seems be working, hecame to see me and said why are you crying i said because I'm still in pain, he said well you're find n there's nothing else ,there was still one more test to be done, he did not care, God sees everything Worse doctor seriously.

Very bad experience with Dr. Cohen. He was very impatient, did not want to give me any medical advice, and basically could not wait to kick me out of the office. I was extremely disappointed.

Very personable and caring - excellent bedside manner. Listens and speaks very straightforward. I felt very comfortable with him and trusted his diagnosis. He pushed to get me through to get scanned and I'm glad he did as something important was found.

At my first meeting he walked into the room, listened to me said I had neuropathy and said 'sugar'. I was confused by this since he didn't take the time to hear what I was saying and hadn't performed any tests. After I requested, he performed some tests to rule out MS and check the severity of my neuropathy. It was acute. After I got the results from my tests it was over. He never tested for diabetes or any other causes of my severe neuropathy causing me to see care elsewhere.
