In March 2017 I needed a total colectomy due to UC, I met him the day before my surgery (after never meeting him before) and all of my fears went away. I had a temporary ileostomy for a few months and in August I had my take down & my jpouch was complete. This man saved my life and gave me a better quality of life for me since I'm only 25. I owe this man so much. He is amazing and the sweetest & smartest person. Thank you Dr. Cohen!
