Dr. Cohen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cohen "Dr. Cohen is an accomplished plastic surgeon who focuses her skills, care, and attention on helping patients realize their true potential. She understands that there is more to plastic surgery than physical enhancements, so she provides comprehensive, compassionate care to everyone who comes into the clinic. With training in both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures, Dr. Cohen is able to provide patients with personalized plans suited to their goals. Dr. Cohen received her medical degree from the University of Virginia and went on to do extensive post-graduate work at the University of Michigan and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas. She completed her residency and fellowships in research, general surgery, plastic surgery, and microvascular and reconstructive surgery. She is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and dedicates time to speaking engagements aimed at educating groups about breast and skin cancer. Before opening her current practice, Dr. Cohen spent 10 years as the Associate Director of the Wound Healing Center and Institute for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Retreat Doctors' Hospital. Her attention to patient care also earned her an award for Best Bedside Manner from Our Health Richmond in 2013, 2014 and again in 2015."

Dr. Leslie Cohen is an incredible surgeon who is compassionate, kind, and artfully skilled in her profession. Until my surgery with Dr. Cohen, I had never had any surgery and was slightly nervous about going under general anesthesia. Dr. Cohen and her wonderful staff put me at ease and made me feel comfortable, well informed, and confident in my surgical decision. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen to anyone considering plastic or reconstructive surgery.

I'm so thankful for Dr. Cohen and her staff. The care they provided over the last year was top-notch. I had many questions about the breast reconstruction process and Dr. Cohen always took time to ensure all my questions were thoroughly answered during each step of the process. Dr. Cohen has an amazing bedside manner, she is always kind, caring, and friendly. She is an amazing plastic surgeon and I am thrilled with the results! Thanks to Dr. Cohen, I now feel whole again and I look great!
