I have been a patient of Dr Cohan for 24+ years. Each and every time I have been treated with the utmost respect by a "CARING" Dr. Cohan. His early diagnosis of my Diabetes has enabled me to live an active, healthy life, for which I am extremely grateful. I have unfortunately just moved away and his shoes will be very hard to fill, but I know that if I were in need he would be there for me.

Whenever I see Dr. Cohan, he is warm, patient and understanding. Dr. Cohan reminds me of Doctors from years ago, who saw the humanity in each person he saw. There are not that many Doctors these days to compare to him. After 13 different operations (all for different problems) I guess you could say I know from experience how rare Dr. Cohan is, both as a Doctor AND as a human being. I remember the night he stopped in my hospital room. It was past 8:30pm, he’d been working nearly 12 hours and was practically asleep on his feet. He could easily have skipped seeing me, I wouldn’t have known, but he took the time to stop and see me. Besides being an EXCELLENT Doctor, he is a caring one. I feel so lucky to be his patient.

Dr. Michael L. Cohan is the best doctor I ever seen. He will surprise you with his professionalism. He is a true expert as a nephrologist in CKD and very knowledge in many other fields of medicine. Dr. Cohan is answering to all your questions in order that you understand the roots causing your disease and explains the ways to treat the symptoms, and all the necessary tests needed. Michael is a very popular doctor. He his very friendly with you. When you are in his office you will fill as you talking to a member of your family. He will spent at least one hour with you. I highly will recommend Dr. Cohan to everybody. You will be surprised after seeing him. Sotiraq Qano

Dr. Cohan is the most attentive and knowledgeable doctor I have had the pleasure to receive care from. Many doctors are wonderful professionals but few display the level of Dr. Cohan's empathy & genuine desire to care for you as an individual with needs vs. another patient. If you are looking for a nephrologist or internal medicine physician look no further. He is the BEST!

I have had the privilege of having Dr. Michael Cohan as my primary care physician for many, many years. To say I trust him with my life is not an overstatement! Dr. Cohan is thorough, caring, compassionate, and always takes the time to address any of my concerns. Moreover, Dr. Cohan brings a genuineness and humanity in his relationship with me. I cannot adequately express the degree of admiration and respect that I hold for Dr. Cohan both as a physician and as a man.

For over 25 years, "Dr. Mike" Cohan has been my personal doctor. I would find it hard to go elsewhere. With a kidney issue, it just works well. He and his nursing staff continue to ask, test, treat and change as I just hit the age of 60. I trust his opinion. He tells you what you need to hear. Not what you necessarily want to hear. I got on a exercise kick after a friend of mine passed per Dr. Cohan's recommendation. Amazing results. We confer on a medical and personal basis. I highly recommend!

Dr. Cohan has been extremely helpful in my health improvement from total renal failure. I had this failure in May 2017 which is when I started to work with Dr. Cohan and since then my condition has greatly improved especially after his suggestion to get a second opinion from a urologist which that doctor was able to get my urinary track to function properly again. Dr. Cohan has been great at evaluating my condition throughout the 1 1/2 that we have been working together.

Dr. Cohan's knowledge of medicine goes well beyond kidneys. He looks at the patient's big picture needs, is patient, and shows great empathy. I've had follow-up calls from Dr. Cohan on weekends or evenings - even to check in on my mother and her illness or my cardiac care appointments - always offering his care and guidance even when I was seeing other specialists. This is truly unique in today's medical practice world.

Dr Cohan has been my doctor for 24 years and I would recommend him to all my family and friends. Many are currently his patients. He is always kind and understanding and takes his time with me. He listens and asks questions about my health. He takes his time with patients and provides the information that is asked for in a timely manner. I feel extremely well cared for and know that he provides me the best care and advice. He is a wonderful doctor and a great person.

I have been a patient of Dr Cohan for 20 years. Not only does he treat me with respect and patience, but he also provides excellent medical care. I truly appreciate that he checks his facts thoroughly and isn't afraid to bring a specialist in when necessary. I'm probably one of his more challenging patients, as I tend to question everything. He appreciates that I want to be involved in my care and works with me to prescribe tests and/or medications that I am comfortable with. A++ He's the best.

He never rushes you in and out of the office. He takes time to understand your situation. He explains medical conditions to you in a way that is understandable.

I have been a patient of Dr. Cohan for over 25 years. My wife and I moved 40 miles from Elmhurst 15 years ago and we both quickly agreed that it was worth the one hour drive to stay with Dr. Cohan in Elmhurst. In my entire life I have never had more trust and confidence in anyone except maybe my parents. He treats you like family. He always seems to ask the right questions and his responses are complete and easy to understand . He is a very special man who is in the correct profession.

Dr Cohan is always ready to listen and not make you feel rushed. I am very confident in whatever he recommends that it is the right thing. He will explain what he is prescribing to be sure I understand. His memory is amazing. He will remember a problem that we discussed months ago and ask how I am doing with it. Very caring. I have been a long time patient and will not see any other primary doctor. His bedside manner should be "cloned" for other doctors to follow.

My family has been going to Dr Cohan for probably 20 years. I trust his advice and he is the first person we turn to with any medical issue. He knows my family and takes an interest in all of us. I truly feel cared about and cared for by this doctor. He is very thorough and makes sure he has answered every question or concern I have. I would not go anywhere else.
