Dr. Cohen is the best hands down (haha). He explained everything so I could understand it and is Aces in my book. Seems like the Best really are there at MW Orthopedics. Doctors are the surgeon's and know what they're doing. Indiana only gives a License to practice medicine, Dr. Cohen fixes you. There is a reason why they're the Best!

Dr Cohen is a very professional, very knowlegeable, excellent doctor. After I broke my wrist in two places in 8 pieces, I underwent two surgeries. My recovery time was very short, and I never experienced any pain after surgery. My recovery is 100%, my arm is as good as it was prior to the break. I highly recommend him. Thanks so much to Dr Cohen.

Dr. Cohen is knowledgeable, kind, efficient. His entire staff was compassionate, professional, and provided excellent care. As an RN, I can spot incompetence. This entire staff was excellent. I would give Dr. Cohen the highest recommendation. I broke my radius 3 days before Thanksgiving and I was able to get an appointment the day before Thanksgiving and surgery the Monday after. The appointment schedule was busy, but they got me in.

Dr. Cohen performed surgery on my right little finger to repair a torn tendon. He communicated everything about the surgery, recovery, and rehab thoroughly and I could not be happier with him and his staff! They are all brilliant in their respective fields, friendly and down to earth. I would recommend them HIGHLY!

Great care here. Very busy. If you need more Dr time it may not be for you. If you want the best care it is for you. Have your questions ready.

Dr. Cohen is fantastic! I came him in bad shape with both wrists shattered and both radial and ulnar bones fractured in both arms. He described it as one of the worst he had seen in his 25 years. He and his team worked a miracle and put me back together again with amazing results. It is now three months later and I have back almost full flexibility. I have no pain whatsoever. My initial Xrays looked like an explosion. They were professional and care throughout the process.

Where do I start? My experience with Dr. Cohen and his team was exemplary! I fractured my wrist. Unfortunately my care was delayed due to a family emergency. As a result, my wrist healed improperly requiring a more extensive surgical intervention. Dr. Cohen and his entire team answered all my questions/concerns promptly and kept me actively involved in my care. Dr. Cohen spent extra time in surgery with me so that I would have a great result. I am grateful to Dr. Cohen and his team!

I have seen Dr. Cohen for twenty years . I have recommended him to two friends who are also pleased with his medical expertise. Excellent professional physician. I was very late for my appointment because of transportation issues and the staff worked me in.

This was the worst medical experience Ive ever had. Do not waste your time seeing dr. Mark Cohen. He does not respect his patients or their time and pain. He does not let people speak and if you don't answer a question fast enough he takes it that your answer is no that you're not in pain where he's touching. It was the biggest waste of my time and I left there feeling like I was on trial for something and a prisoner instead of a patient who got hurt at work. Needs training in compassion

Well, for the whole 5 minutes I met with him the only interaction with him directly with me instead of to his medical student and PA was to push my hand away when I would go to show him where it hurts and that I would not like the shot.

About Me

Care Philosophy

I see patients with problems of their hands and arms. So they see me because something doesn't work. Something doesn't bend. Something hurts when they use it. Something doesn't feel right. They've lost feeling or sensation, or they've had an injury. ...
