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!
