Have endometriosis? RUN AS FAST AS U CAN!!! Now going for my third surgery in 16 months due to his incompetence. First surgery with him he left a remnant of of my ovary. That has now attached to my bowels Second surgery with skilled physician Who couldn't remove it completely due to possible rupturing of bowels and sepsis. Now having to go for a third surgery to see how to relieve my constant pain. Used him for 19 years. Ask myself why.

Dr. Cohen is an awesome, Dr. Cohen took care of both of my pregnancies and i'm planning to go back to him for my 3rd pregnancy. he makes you feel like your at home, he's caring, funny and one of the best...

DR.COHEN IS AWESOME. He is very caring, gentle and understanding. My entire pregnancy was a breeze thanks to him and his wonderful staff. My delivery day he was with me every step of the way, even though he wasn't present during labor he was just 1 phone call away when I needed to speak with him. After delivery he came in to check on my family and I to see how we were doing and to encourage us since we were new parents at the time. He also did a great job on my son's circumcision. THANK YOU DOC!

The Best!!! Highly recommend to all woman. He is caring, efficient and knowledgeable.

Dr. Cohen came highly recommended, but did not match my personality. During the first appointment, he was high energy and positive, but very rushed. He had a "speech" prepared that very quickly ran through every possible question a pregnant woman could ask, then handed me a packet. It's also impossible to get through on the phone. They take a 2 hour lunch break and sometimes don't turn off the answering machine in the morning. He also schedules unnecessary tests without discussing it first.

Dr. Cohen was so busy and moved so fast that I couldn't remember if I even got a breast exam during my last appointment. I was disappointed.

One of the few doctors left that calls his patients personally to give them test results no matter if they are Positive or negative. Very quick, efficient and caring

Could not be happier with this Dr. He is such a sweet caring person. He makes you feel special, He makes you feel important and listens to you. I had such a great experience with him. Trusted him with everything.

Dr Cohen delivered my third daughter, back in2002. He is utterly professional, easy to talk to and very knowledgeable on all women's issues. I hope he will start to accept Molina Heath insurance so I can return as a patient. ??

Due to Dr. Cohen's incompetence I will have to undergo another surgery. Supposedly he removed my left ovary and fallopian tube, however I have recent ultrasound results that he did not. During my follow up visit from my original surgery, I complained about pain near my hip and my upper leg, he quickly brushed me off stating unrelated, however, I have learned that the pain is from endometriosis that he DID NOT remove. Also, to get an appt with him your expected to waited MONTHS. Not worth it!

An exceptional person with a great attitude. He made me feel extremely comfortable. Unfortunately I had a very bad experience with a doctor in my previous pregnancy and he reassured me that he would do everything in his power to make sure I had a great one this go around. I highly recommend him to any and everyone which is probably why I can't get an appt to save my life now lol.

THE BEST!! My 1st pregnancy was a medical nightmare, but Dr. Cohen held my hand through it all with genuine compassion, appropriate guidance, medical professionalism & superior bedside manner. He returned calls in an abnormally expeditious time, had an informative explanation for every question I had, gave me (beyond) the time, patience, and sensitivity I required during a pregnancy that went from normal, to scary, ultimately to necessary termination. Still follows up, checks in. HIGHLY REC!!

Doctor Cohen is the absolute best. He delivered all 3 of my kids and I've been going to him for 20 years. He is kind, caring, just all around the best doctor ever!

Dr. Cohen, Stephanie and his staff are incredible! First,Dr. Cohen has a wonderful and professional bedside manner. He answers all of our questions and puts any fears at ease. His knowledge and experience surpass all. In the event of complications he is re assuring and explains each step. I can't say enough wonderful things. My labor and delivery was such a special experience and I am forever grateful to Dr. Cohen and his staff for safe delivery and for our baby boy.
