Performed unnecessary operation on my foot because he thought it would fix my problem. It did not.

There is no one I would recommend or trust more than Dr. Cohen. For over 20 years he is the only one I would turn to for the diagnoses and treatment for my injuries due to being a completive runner and triathlete. 100% return to performance every time.

I am an active 71 year old male who had been suffering with a retrocalcaneal heel spur for many years. After getting to the point of being in constant pain while walking, I visited Dr. Cohen, who is well known in my local athletic community. Surgery was performed the last week in July and I was back running much quicker than anticipated thanks to Dr. Cohen. During all my visits I never felt rushed and always had all my questions and concerns addressed. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen.

I can not say enough exceptional DR Cohen is. 3 1/2 yrs ago my entire lower leg & ankle was shattered. I came to Fl 2 yrs ago to find a Dr. That could help me walk again. Dr Cohen looked at all my xray & CT Scans. Told me I'm not going to like what needs to be done but, I'll walk and have no pain. A year later 2 more surgery 1 to remove some parts & 1 to install a halo for 4 mths. I can walk with a walking boot now.. soon no boot no knee Walker or crutches. Dr. Cohen is the best in his fiel

Dr. Cohen is one of the most caring and dedicated physicians I know. His knowledge and experience in treating complicated conditions of the foot and ankle is unsurpassed. If you are looking for a 2nd opinion or are contemplating surgery of the foot or ankle of any kind, he is the physician to see. I have known Dr. Cohen for over 25 years, both professionally (I am a retired podiatrist) and personally and recommend him highly.

I was referred to Dr Cohen after seeing 3 other specialists. He was and is the most qualified and nicest of all! His expertise was unsurpassed by all. He is a kind gentleman who is sincerely committed to his patient's well being. He tried several conservative treatments prior to last resort of surgery. I had an ankle injury with a rare fracture which needed an unusual surgery. None of the other Drs were proficient in this surgery. So glad I waited to find Dr Cohen. He is the best!

Everyone at The Foot, Ankle & Leg Specialists of So. Fl., especially my surgeon, Dr. Michael Cohen, have been great. Dr. C has transformed my life by performing a total ankle replacement. I was injured in an industrial accident over 40 yrs. ago. In recent yrs arthritis set in and I was reduced to wearing a cam boot and using a cane and suffering from pain during the slightest of movement. Dr. C eased my mind before the surgery and now, 6 mo.'s later I'm "dancing" out of the office. Thanks Dr. C.
