He never got up from his chair to do any neurological checks. I saw other MD’s checking other patients eyes-vision, hearing, walking or at least checking the patients. I. received no such care. He did nothing but advised me to be greatfull and stop complaining about my condition, nothing can be done. In other words, he did want to hear about my symptoms or why I was there. Also, he is unable or willing to help. He wanted to repeat expense tests and order other expensive tests without an evaluation. I walked out of the office feeling nothing was done, more questions, no answers; and wasted $300 in these Covid times. Do not waste your time or money. He is not there to help. Look for someone else. I feel he was there to be paid not to help.. sad.

Staff was incompetent and rude, did not know office procedures, kept yelling over me on phone and refusing to provide basic information. Wasn't able to make appointment. Doctor seriously needs to consider firing entire staff.

If you need Dr Cohen to back you up on a medical claim. He will tell you what you want to hear before he drops you as a patient. Gives you Pain Management Medication and claims you've been cured. Joe Kocher
