Puyallup, WA |
Dr Cohen saw me post operatively for a concern regarding my breast expanders, as Dr Wilcox was not in clinic that day. Dr Cohen was unbelievably condescending and I left his office frustrated and with no answers to my questions. Every time I would ask Dr Cohen a question, he would cut me off mid sentence with "that's normal". He never even listened to what my concerns were. I would never refer anyone to that condescending, pompous jerk.

I can't say one bad thing about Dr. Cohen or his office everyone is so kind! I'm a very shy person and was so nervous Dr. Cohen was so professional he made me very comfortable. I was so happy with everything I referred two family members to him. Highly recommended him!
in Spanaway, WA |
Cohen inexplicably stopped part-way through my reconstruction surgery, and behaved like an offended child when I dared to question him as to why. I had one nipple removed with my double-mastectomy, so a nipple lift on the remaining one was always a vital part of my surgery plan. The marks were drawn and all seemed in order. The implants he chose were far too large, and resulted in a bad physical, and visual, result. My breasts have zero symmetry, one far below the other. Arrogant jerk.

Dr. Cohen is an excellent surgeon. He is 100% focused on your concerns and discussing the procedure in detail in advance of your surgery.
