Dr Cohen was arrogant, rude, and completely lacking in compassion. He spoke not one word to me while painfully cutting a chunk out of my face. I was treated like a piece of meat. In conversation, he lacked all empathy and was condescending.
in Arvada, CO |
Great bedside manner. Very engaging. Thorough, shows a sense of urgency. Empathetic. Impressed with his work and the results. I had melanoma removed from my face. I was seen quickly, the cancer removed a short time later and the wound was repaired the day the results of the lab test were returned. Couldn't ask for better treatment than I received. Thanks Dr. Cohen!
