What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Cohen, MD
Reply
this doctor was horrible I went to him for an independent medical exam I was asked to fill out an entry form on how I was feeling that particular day and since my car accident did not even take a minute to look at that states that I have nothing wrong with my back but when I asked him if he was willing to help me he says absolutely I have to run a bunch more tests so I can find out what it is but I can definitely help. why the offer to help if nothing is wrong???
