Dr. Cogen is absolutely amazing. The second he steps into the room, you can see the love, patience, and care he has for each child. He performed eye muscle surgery on my child and was absolutely amazing. We didn’t feel rushed, he was there every step of the way to ensure all questions were answered. He even called on the weekend just to see how well my child was recovering. If you are searching for an eye doctor to care for your child, choose Dr. Martin Cogen.

My son (who has special needs including Autism) was dismissed from his care because he felt my 9 yr old was too big and moved too much. I had put my son into his wheelchair to aid with keeping him still but he refused to even try. He then stated I was being argumentative because I asked him if he would try and dismissed us from his care. We have never been treated this way and I am hurt for my child.
