I went to Dr. Cohen because my hair was thinning and I spent years agonizing about it. A friend sent me to Dr. Cohen, and he had me try Rogaine and then Nutrafol. He prefered to see whether we could get results with them. I admired that he waited two years and I had to bring up the subject of surgery. I screwed up my courage, and had the surgery a month ago. He is a masterful surgeon, and his staff is first-class. They are empathic and well-versed in what they do. It didn't hurt at all, except hours later it felt as if someone was pulling my hair a bit (not bad). My eyes looked bruised from the swelling, but ten days later I looked fine (I hear not all people even get the black-and-blue around the eys. It was so easy that I wish I had done it sooner. I am so happy I had Dr. Cohen as my doctor. I just wish I had done it sooner!

I first met Dr. Ivan in March of 2017. His staff received me in a timely manner, and was extremely kind and considerate. Dr. Cohen was personable, professional, and considerate. He and his staff were thorough and took an interest in my occupation, to make sure the hair transplant surgery best fit my schedule and needs. I returned for surgery in November 2017, and spent most of the day in their care. They were excellent in every way. The entire process was discreet and professional.

Dr Cohn and his experienced long term staff are great! I? had a hair transplant six months ago and the result is more than I? expected. You can’t see the donor scar even if you look for it. The new growth is slow and natural. Wow! Why did I? wait so long. Dr Cohn please don’t retire! Doubt it cause I? asked him and he replied...why would I? , I? love what I? do. Well it shows and THANK YOU!

If you're thinking about a hair transplant & searching for the right Dr. to do it STOP, you've found him! I've had a handful procedures over the years, all done by Dr. Cohen. He and his staff are the BEST! Attention to detail, ease of communication, comfort level, friendly professional staff, all top notch. Members of the staff have been with him many, many years. Why is that important? They work great as a team. And it tells me he treats his crew as well as he treats his patients. The Best!

I had a hair transplant procedure with Dr. Cohen in October. The results were terrific and very natural looking. His staff was very knowledgeable and Dr. Cohen made sure everything was satisfactory, including follow up visits. I would highly recommend Dr. Cohen to anyone.

I've had 3 hair transplants with different surgeons in the past 10 years and although the results were ok, the experiences were horrible. I came to Dr. Cohen, as I am familiar and trust the Fairfield Dermotology practice, and had the 4th. From the start of the procedure, Dr. Cohen and his staff were, by far, the most professional and caring that I have experienced. The team, knowing my trepidation, looked after my every concern. I only regret not coming to Dr. Cohen 10 years ago.

Today I had my second hair replacement surgery by Dr. Cohen. I could not be happier with the entire experience. Dr. Cohen spent a lot of time with me explain the process, again, and he was very supportive. Dr, Cohen and his staff continually checked on my comfort level throughout the procedure. His nurses are extreemley efficient and caring. If I need to have surgery again, I will go back to Dr, Cohen.
