      BEWARE! Saw him after a concussion. He offered me zero treatment. Declined to investigate vascular irregularities in my brain MRI. Scared me by telling me since I had four concussions, I was at risk for CTE, the horrifying disease that football players get (spoiler alert: other neurologists have said this is untrue). Told me “there was nothing wrong with me” but also that “concussions were cumulative” and I wouldn’t get better. Signed off on me to go back to work after three months with no restrictions when I couldn’t function. I’m now getting ready to return to work, after over a year of rehabilitation. Turned out, the concussion messed up my vision, which in turn scrambled all of my other senses. So there was something wrong with me, there was a treatment for it, this doctor just didn’t offer it to me. As a result I could’ve been stuck with zero quality of life. Luckily I was too stubborn to accept that!

      DR had the nerve to say “I have other patients!” After checking a phone call on his cellphone. I literally cried! He says “why I make a lady cry” ummm let’s see you just got done telling me I suffered a traumatic brain injury and I can’t be on my phone, computer or watch TV and then told me church and bible study was too stimulating for my brain and when I ask you ?s your answers are dismissive! THEN! My workman’s comp case manager has left serval vm’s over the past 2 weeks and no return call!

      There is a serious lack of care and concern for patients from this doctor and his staff. Vital prior authorizations are not filed timely or properly, no return response for multiple messages left, Doctor point blank said he lacks the staff to properly file papers for insurance approval leaving me without medication he prescribed. More concerned with filing billing than with patient care. If you're in pain don't see him he's no help, cares very little about you as a patient.

      Very rushed and impatient. Appeared to be in a hurry for next appointment. As it turned out, his rushed diagnosis was incorrect as proven by two other follow up Physicians.

      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.
