After a history of recurring diverticulitis and recently finding a perforation, Dr. Cohen recommended a resection of my sigmoid colon. I had a very good first impression of Dr. Cohen, and I had no trouble agreeing with his recommendation. The surgery went well a few months ago, and I just had my last checkup with him this morning. There are still a few aches that will subside over the next month or so, but I am very happy with the results of my surgery. Dr. Cohen is friendly, knowledgeable, and caring. He also has a sense of humor, which is comforting for anybody who's had this type of condition.

From the time I was diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer that had spread to my liver Dr. Cohen has been phenomenal. Every time I've left his office I've had a good understanding of procedures and a smile on my face. Dr. Cohen is always accessible. A phone call away to any question. I am now looking at remission and he has played a big part in that. thank you Dr. Cohen.

After being referred to Dr. Cohen, I was scheduled for a colon resection on due to reoccurring diverticulitis. Once my surgery began, he identified that a pervious mesh surgery had intertwined with my small intestines. He then had 2 areas of my colon to resection. Dr. Cohen stated to me, that he liked a challenge! He always had time to answer my questions, was down to earth, and made my wife and I comfortable to be around. Thanks again!

If we're honest, no one really wants to go to a "butt" doctor. If you have to go, you can do no better than Dr. Cohen. Yes, he is very busy. Yes, you may have to wait for a little while. However, when it's your turn, he spends with you all the time you need, answering questions and helping you feel comfortable with whatever you need, what's next, etc. I appreciate that Dr. Cohen does not treat his patients like a number. He is always pleasant and cordial, professional and kind. I had stage 3 rectal cancer and Dr. Cohen found it, referred me to a fabulous oncologist, and did my surgery. He pretty much saved my life. Dr. Cohen demonstrates genuine care and concerns for his patients. On a side note: If you're 50 or have any symptoms of something wrong in your "plumbing," go get a colonoscopy to make sure it's not cancer. The life you save may be your own!

My experience with Dr. Cohen was nothing but positive. He made himself directly available to me to answer any questions before and after surgery procedure. …….This is quite rare!!!!!

I had a colonoscopy about 2 weeks ago. When Dr. Cohen came to tell me all was OK, I had a question. The question was concerning the reason I had been seeing him for about 3 years. He told me to make an appointment. I arrived at the appointment on time. After 30 minutes wait, I told the receptionist that I was leaving. The receptionist said that I was next and it would only be 10-20 minutes more. I drove 30 minutes to get to and from the appointment and waited 30minutes. I think that my time is valuable, not to mention my gas. I had a long wait the last time I went to his office. They need help.
