What People Say About Dr. Howard Cohen, MD

For complex pain management, Dr. Howard Cohen is remarkable. He has impeccable education credentials and training. I have been with him a year and have experienced the most medically advanced care I have ever received. He is knowledgeable and thorough and that takes time. I understand schedules and the frustration of waiting; and for me, a wait of a couple of hours is worth the attention and understanding he gives each patient. I appreciate the drug screening tests he requires because I know that makes me and all his patients safer at the end of the day. I highly recommend him and his staff.

Dr. Cohen is one of the best physicians I've been treated by, in the last 10 years, and there have been many. He puts his patients at ease and is easy talk with. He listens to his patients and always tries to find the cause of the patient's illness. He does not just treat symptoms, and he doesn't treat you by throwing drugs at you. He is definitely very motivated to get his patients as well as possible. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen. He's not only a good doctor, but most of all he is a good man. ADDENDUM Despite the current climate regarding pain management in our country, and the severe restrictions the DEA has placed on all pain management doctors nationally; Dr. Cohen is still diligently working to find a solution(s) for my and my fellow sufferers pain needs. You couldn't ask for a more dedicated physician than that. This man is a true and solid healer.

Dr. Cohen is amazing. He has helped me so much. His caring and compassionate nature has gotten him in trouble with the DEA. This is OUTRAGEOUS. SHAME ON YOU DEA. It is a long wait sometimes but he’s an amazing doctor who takes time to really listen. He’s well worth the wait.

Howard Cohen helped to give me my my life back 15 years ago after my first PM doc retired. He's always offered many other treatment options in addition to medication. What is happening now is not his doing, it's the current government's administrative policies. He cares deeply about his patients.

Wonderful - second to none! I've been under his care for five years. He is top notch and stays current with new treatment options for pain. He doesn't just herd you through his office. Rather, he sits down with you and thoroughly discusses all your issues, provides excellent counseling along with an individualized up-to-date treatment plan. He goes way beyond the time he spends with you compared to other physicians. He is extremely compassionate and personable. He surrounds himself with a knowledgable and caring staff. He goes the extra mile dealing with insurance companies.

Dr. Cohen has been a wonderful physician and I was on the verge of a real recovery inside and out until recently. It has taken over 3 weeks of persistent attempts to get his office to send over the paperwork for my short term disability. I am on the verge of loosing my job and I have already missed a whole month of pay. This stress has worsen my state of being and has reversed the progress I was making. My depression has increased which is causing my pain to increase. Frequency of suicidal thoughts and feelings of hopelessness is having an immense impact on my quality of life. I can't afford to loose my job but I am not fit to go back to work so where do I go from here. It's the little things in life that can make or break a person and because of the added stress I feel like I am in pieces again. I don't understand why it is so hard to fax over a couple of pages of my clinical notes so that I can continue with my medical care and get back to a good quality of life.

My care and attention was consistently conscientious and professional from front office to physician. His assessment of my situation was thorough and he discussed my options clearly then we weighed the benefits and created a plan. His knowledge of the drug side-effects, benefits and interactions was thorough and wisely applied. His knowledge of basic genetic factors underlying my situation was very valuable. I see myself being able to function normally again.

Stay away from this doctor. Sees you maybe once a year and the rest of the time you see a nurse practitioner. They load you up with pills for a while, getting you hooked then cut back when they are investigated. He also dropped all his Medicare patients June 2018 w/o any prior notice. This was for both straight Medicare and ones with Medicare Supplement Plans with big insurers (Humana, AARP, BSW Health Plan, Aetna, BCBS, etc)

I have called three times in a week to get an appointment, desperately needed, and I cannot even get a human. Just an impersonal answering machine, and no one calls me back. Unethical to your continuing patients.

After seeing him for months, I cancelled my appts because his staff would not listen nor believe that I had a herniated disc. Left in agony for months, I had no choice but to confirm my own diagnosis with those that would actually care for me.

I don't believe Howard  has a functioning understanding of the new guidelines set forth by the CDC ( which have admitted to a 200% data error..) he would rather hurt me than correct his mistake. I've been seeing him about 5 years on my last office visit he appeared to not recognize me. I have great concerns and I'm looking for another doctor...I feel like Dr Cohen is shaking my hand while choking my neck. To me someone who would hurt a person who is endured pain for 65 years is a Despicable Act

Dr. Cohen is a genius. Bedridden @ 18 & 9mths of suffering, specialists & tests. Was it in my head? I saw Dr. Cohen- diagnosed me in 30min. He evolves w/ medicine to relieve those pained. He never settles- studies new research to unearth new diseases, treatments & medicines. A ‘95 trip to Europe he learned of a newly discovered disease & best treatment. He returned able to diagnose cause of my Mom’s pain & treat her. All the doctors had no answers, Dr. Cohen found them. He fights for patients.

Thankfully, I have been under the care of Dr. Howard Cohen for four years. He and his staff have been incredible in helping me with pain management, depression, and dibilitating Post-Acute Benzodiazepine Withdrawal. Dr. Cohen is board certified in numerous areas of Pain and Psychiatry, which make him uniquely qualified to help in any of his areas of specialty. Dr. Cohen is brilliant at looking at each health issue that arises with care, commitment, and compassion that seldom exists today. A+++

Dr. Cohen, Dawn and Debbie are wonderful. The office staff can be rude and grumpy. The worst part is the wait time is almost always ridiculous! Most times over 2 hours. They are overbooked all the time. So infuriating when you're in pain to begin with.

Dr. Cohen is a brilliant physician. He provides you the care you need when he sees you. He may run late but that is because he provides the highest quality care available. Don't let the wait detour you from seeing him. He saved my life. I have been seeing him for many years. I was out of work and now work a 50 + hour a week job and have my life back. I recommend him without reservation.
