Dr. Cohen is an excellent foot and ankle surgeon. I am a retired Podiatrist and have been seeing Dr. Cohen over the years for a few different foot and ankle problems. His vast experience and superior clinical acumen has resulted in spot on diagnoses. He repaired my complete achilles tendon rupture 4 months ago using a minimally invasive procedure and I am progressing very well. His demeanor is always calm and reassuring and I deeply appreciate all he has done for me.

I researched multiple options and after seeing a top orthopedic surgeon at a leading hospital, and then Dr. Cohen, his expertise in podiatric surgery clearly set him apart (his bio within the practice he is part of was also impressive). His proposed solutions to my foot issues (4) were more comprehensive than the the first surgeon I saw (who suggested the option of amputating my 5th toe vs. the more complex procedure opted for with Dr. Cohen). I could try to explain the details, but suffice it to say that after questioning Dr. Cohen on all aspects of the surgery, I placed my full faith in him, and the outcome was exceptional. Apart from his professional qualifications, Dr. Cohen is a very warm and personable individual who put me at ease; he showed a genuine interest in my well-being and easily engaged in light conversation after covering the essentials. His insurance/surgery scheduler was also so nice and thorough. Conclusion: five stars for Dr. Cohen (and his staff) on all accounts!

After searching for a dr to fix my vertical talus for months with no results I decided to look for a doctor outside of Orlando. Dr Cohen is very attentive, patient and understanding. He takes the time to explain in a way that you will understand. After my surgery he personally called me to make sure I was ok and my pain was being managed. Dr Cohen is a god sent and I am very happy.

Dr. Cohen performed an amazing job with my comminuted malleolus fracture along with other damage between the tibia and fibula. The surgery went fantastic and 11 months later he removed all the hardware from the ankle. I have felt no joint pain whatsoever when engaging in impact sports. My experience with him was not only great, but he is very professional as well.

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

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.

I had to have a toe amputated, and Dr. Cohen was not only professional and clear over the weeks leading up to surgery, but also emotionally supportive and with a sense of humor. On surgery day, his clarity and support also comforted to my wife. He did a great job, and I can walk again without pain. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen.
