Dr Cohen did my illeostamy reversal. It went great. Dr Cohen has great follow up skills. He listens and has great bedside manners. Very skilled surgeon and will tell you straight up what the problem is. He will call you on his personal cell phone and you can call him as well.

Dr. Cohen is THE BEST!!! He truly cares about his patients, and the staff at Northside Cherokee deeply respects him. He does all that he can to ensure the very best experience & outcome for every patient and every caregiver. Dr. Cohen is honest & candid, and he thoughtfully guides his patients through every detail of their health concern. I am most grateful for his patience and professionalism in dealing with my other physicians. I heartily recommend Dr. Cohen and his wonderful office staff!

I was extremely impressed with my care from Dr. Cohen. He made me feel at ease and was very easy to talk with. He gave me his cell # to call him if I need to ask questions or just talk about my procedure. Awesome bed side support!
Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Cohen was very friendly in my appointment with him, and he arrived to my room on time, without me having to wait long like usually happens with other doctors. He and his staff were very considerate during the appointment, and afterward when explaining to me that I needed surgery, he took the time to explain the overall situation with diagrams and writing out the exact procedures so I could look up. Surgery has yielded no complications, little pain, and I am recovering quickly.

Excellence in a surgeon is probably most often considered in terms of skilled performance in the operating theatre. While Dr. Cohen is no exception in this regard, his interpersonal skills set him apart from normal expectations. From the start, he put me at ease, warmly shaking hands, listening to my questions and answering them fully. From his surgical skills to his personal demeanor, Dr. Cohen is, in my opinion, the epitome of excellence. I am very comfortable entrusting my care to him.

woodstock, GA |
Dr. Cohen and his staff are exceptionally competent, compassionate and great at what they do. I had to have a colon resection and the care that I received from start to finish was impressive. As a nurse, I am well aware of patient care standards and they exceeded my expectations. My healing was bolstered by the fact that I had an experienced, skilled surgeon. This is what he does, day after day and it makes a difference. I had very little discomfort, a quick healing and a great experience.

Dr Cohen has been my surgeon since 1999 and he is the kindest physician. His bedside manner is excellent and he leaves no stones unturned. I trust him 100%! He has always treated me and my family as part of own since the first time we met in an emergency situation. I highly recommend him.
in Kennesaw, GA |
Dr. Cohen has performed a couple of surgeries on me. He has always been very attentive to my needs, listens to my concerns and explains conditions/procedures thoroughly. He is very caring and he is very thorough. He keeps his word, which is a rarity these days. His office staff is excellent, very helpful and friendly. They also are very dependable and will return phone calls, another rarity these days. Wonderful experiences with that practice.

I have had the misfortune of using the healthcare system more than my fair share for several years. I have learned that if there is ANY doctor in this world you may want on your healthcare team? Is Dr. Jeffrey Cohen at Atlanta Colon & Rectal Surgery in Marietta GA! He is the most caring, compassionate and charismatic human ever to grace the medical profession. He has dedicated his life to making the life of his patients better. Dr. Cohen is an angel in a lab coat.
in Canton, GA |
Dr. Cohen has done several procedures on me and what I like about him is his confidence in what he does. I have a somewhat unusual case where he has had to adjust to the conditions. In addition, I went septic do to infections and he was with me every step of the way. I look for the day we don't have to meet like this:-) Great Job!
in Kennesaw, GA |
Dr. Cohen was always available and so easy to talk to! He answered all questions in a direct manner and set forth a plan of treatment.
in Canton, GA |
To my way of thinking, Dr. Cohen is a perfect example of what a caring, sensitive doctor should be. He is a real treasure in his field. He is so caring and concerned and shows it in his mannerisms.

Love love love Dr. Cohen. He is straight forward and kind.
in Ellijay, GA |
I'm a 50 yr old female, diagnosed in April with colon cancer (no symptoms). I chose Dr. Cohen based on the fact he specializes in colon resection surgery (particularly the davinci robotic procedure). Thank goodness I went to Dr. Cohen. I found him to be comforting, confident, and even humorous. He explained my case in terms that I could understand, including drawing a picture. He was confident without being arrogant. His humor made a stressful situation more pleasant. 2 wks out, doin well
in Woodstock, GA |
Dr. Cohen operated on my for colon cancer. He started using the da Vinci robot, but had to revert to old-fashioned split-em-up-the-middle because of where my tumor was located. Prior to surgery in the pre-consultation visit, Dr. Cohen spent as much time with us as my wife and I needed to answer all our questions and address our concerns, never once looking at his watch. Highly recommend!
