What People Say About Dr. Leon Cohen, MD

So I saw dr. Leon Cohen yesterday took about two and a half hours of waiting. I don't know why I did not get a referral. Furthermore a prescription was prescribed for an anti-inflammatory which was never sent to my Pharmacy. A CT scan was ordered that was never sent to Viera Diagnostics. So I called today to ask them about this and I am done with the most disrespect that I have ever heard. They told me I was handed the prescription when I told them I was right there when the doctor handed it to the person who ended me the appointment card they started to argue. I treated them with respect and kept my composure I just can't see how it is so difficult to receive care.

Waited four hours with a broken humorous bone! Never saw the Dr. Did eventually see a PA. Said patient would be referred to an Orthopedic Surgeon as he needed surgery for an "acute" injury. Called office several times/days for referral. Office said PA never passed referral to "schedulers ". Finally, went back to CCH Emergency for the second time. NEVER heard from this office! The most incompetent office I have ever encountered. Inexcusable to leave a patient with a broken bone with no help!SHAME

The worst. Went twice. Both times waited 3-4 hours. No apologies. Front desk bad attitudes. They hate you if you ask them a question, about anything. Dr tried to talk me into taking all kinds of tests obviously not needed.

My first visit I was there for 4 hours and the second time my apt was at 3, and there were still people waiting for their 11am apts by 5. I ended up leaving after 4 hours. I just couldnt keep waiting that long every time. It’s ridiculous how many people they pack in there. It’s all about the money to them. The receptionist Wanda was incredibly rude to me. They refused to do a preauth and made me pay cash. They lied, lost paperwork, messed up my meds. Don’t waste your time here

Pitiful, always 3 + hours wait time. Someone should look into scheduling and give more accurate time. 1 hour wait is substantial and acceptable. Wouldn't have patients upset and fighting. Sad situation that patent's aren't respected.

I had an appt. at 11am got called back at about 2pm, had my blood drawn, then saw Dr Cohen at 430pm. I went in to get a referral to an allergy doctor and an oral surgeon for TMJ. The doctor told me he couldn't write any referrals without proof but he didn't even bother to see if it was treatable or if he could do anything for me. I was told to come back in after lab results to see him so he can verify if my condition exists. Yet, that is what I'd be going to the specialist for?!

He runs a busy office but that is b/c he doesn't believe in turning anyone away. He is an amazing man who does remarkable work in a challenging setting. Yes, the wait can be long, but I have waited longer in other offices, so bring a book. I think the care I have received has been great.

Incompetent, uncaring, and disrespectful-these are my top 3 among SO many other reasons not to ever go to this office! Be prepared to wait no shorter an amount of time than 3-4 hours. Without exaggeration.

I have no idea how they are still practicing. Waiting 4 hours is just wrong. Telling you don't owe anything for 20 visits and then getting a bill for $500.00 is wrong. The front office elderly woman at the front desk playing or doing something on her phone and not even acknowledging you for 10 minutes while you are standing there is wrong. I basically could not find one positive thing to say about his practice or his staff.

If you are seeking a doctor willing to go above and beyond to do what is best for his patients, Dr. Cohen is NOT the doctor you are looking for. Apparently, the quality of the care he offers is so poor that approximately 75% of his patients must apply for disability, and yet he is totally unwilling to do anything to help them with that process beyond blackmailing them for $200 to fill out a short medical source questionnaire. Dr. Cohen apparently prefers to see his patients suffer.
