    I had a TIA/ministroke diagnosed by Dr. Cohen, who ordered a test for a Patent Foramen Ovale (hole in the heart). The test came back positive, but to my surprise, he refused to support insurance coverage for a repair! It seemed to me he was writing me off due to age (64 and in excellent health). He then actually said that he would only support it if I has a second stroke!! Fortunately, Blue Cross agreed to cover it without his help. Pretty ironic. If your over 60, go elsewhere.

    An appointment was scheduled, but no one was thete. Wonder what the doctor would do if his prescription ran out but he could not get another one because the office was locked up tight during posted office hours. And this wasn't the first tome.
