I did not find him to be a good diagnostician (I had multiple tests and brought the reports and disks with me) and his physical exam was not related to what I was there for. Even while he was performing this exam he didn't watch me (raise arms, touch nose; he walked away before I did them). He examined my eyes through my glasses. I'm not sure he was truly interested in my presenting symptoms.

I came on here to write a review on my experience meeting Dr Cohen and saw the 1-star review at the top of the stack of 5-star reviews. I have to say, this person must be a little off. I came in to see him having not been satisfied with other opinions. He sat and really listened to me. I felt important and heard. He took the time to assess me and we discussed possible courses of action. It was the most in-depth, effective, and pleasant appointment.

Never again. Didn't care, couldn't wait to leave the room. Very bad bedside manner. I don't know where all of these great reviews are coming from. I have told everyone including my own primary physician who is also part of Summit Medical Group about him. Was annoyed, didn't want to give a second opinion. Had no care about me. I was in and out in 10 minutes. Didn't have any thought on my condition. Just a terrible experience. What a waste of time .

As a young female with multiple chronic illnesses, I am very used to being overlooked and passed over by doctors as I "look fine." Dr. Cohen was instantly compassionate and thoroughly invested in helping me not only with my chronic migraines, but with my complex illness. I would highly recommend Dr. Cohen to anyone, he is one of the best doctors I have encountered in any field!

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.
