Dr. Cohen is good at what he does. He can be kind of short when he is very busy, however he does generally explain everything thoroughly. I found it best to write down my questions and hand them to him. He answered each one every time. Dr. Cohen was very open and supportive to family involvement, even during COVID times. He worked with me through every step from consultation to radiation and chemo, the surgery and my hospital stay, back to more chemo. He is an excellent doctor and a good person.

He is truly a man that I would not wish my worst enemy upon he has given my mother a death sentence from his sloppiness and arrogance my best advice run as fast as you can if you are recommended to him. He is truly an amazing example of textbook sociopathy and I hope that he gets what he deserves in life.

Dr. Cohen is an excellent doctor who is very thorough and professional. Upon learning that I had colorectal cancer he knew actually which treatment was the best option for my diagnosis. If anyone in my family was in the same predicament as I, I would insist that they seek treatment from Dr. Cohen and staff. Dr. Cohen's staff is courteous, professional and very attentive. Whenever I visit their office I always feel that I am in competent hands.

Dr. Cohen is not only a very skilled surgeon but he also has a wonderful and compassionate personality. He offers his patients a straight forward diagnosis of their condition but once the information is delivered, he offers a friendly and comforting approach. He is available at all times to ask any questions. He offers his patients his personal cell phone and will text with you at anytime. I think as someone that went through a first time cancer scare, it really helped with my mental approach to keep a positive frame of mind. He is someone you want to take care of you and he makes anyone that is getting their first colonoscopy performed feel more at ease. I can't think of a better doctor in his field and I highly recommend him to other men of my age that are going through their "50" first visits.

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!

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.

Dr. Cohen is amazing! He performed my surgery removing a cancerous tumor of 12 CM’s as well as did my port. He’s honest, keeps it real & is genuine. I’m high anxiety as it is and getting a diagnosis of cancer, well high anxiety to say the least. Dr. Cohen was able to remove all the cancer leaving me cancer free. Chemo for 6 months but cancer free I’ll take. Dr. Cohen is so personable and makes you feel so good about everything. Refreshing I’d recommend this awesome doc & surgeon any day. He makes me giggle too, which is a plus

Dr. Cohen is amazing and rare among other doctors. He performed a laparoscopic colectomy due to my diverticulitis condition. Throughout the process, he was understanding, extremely knowledgeable and has a very welcoming and sincere demeanor that gave me calm and reassurance. And, he and his staff are immediately reachable to address any questions or concerns, which further put me at ease. I highly recommend him to anyone with colorectal issues.
