He did major low back surgery on me in 2007-he was very nice, caring and a very cool man. My low back got real bad in Nov. 2012,had MRI and the Radiologist had a print out about it and he said their where 3 places that needed surgery. I went to him in 2013 and PA said spine injection, went back the next year walking with cane and PA said spine injection which are a huge money maker and does not fix anything that needs surgery. He fixed my neck Aug. 26th. Will not go back to him anymore.

I was given Dr. Cohen's name by a friend.. On my visit,t , I saw a PA who was very cold and uncaring. She did not take very much time with me and put me through excruciating test that caused me intense pain. She showed no remorse that she was putting me through torture. I reported her actions to management. She was suppose to talk to Dr. Cohen and return my call. It has been two weeks since I was there, and I have not heard from her yet. This has left me in a state of hopeless and severe pain.

I spent maybe 20 to 25 minutes in his office with him reviewing my MRI and taking X-Rays. He never discussed the type of surgery I needed just when & where it would take place. He ordered me a back brace which I had to go by his office to pick up & take to the hospital with me. I was in so much pain I could not even ask questions & I made the mistake of not taking someone with me. He ask if I smoked & I answered. I was charged $15.00 for some kind of smoking class or just being asked if I smoke.
