Dr. Cohen was respectful, open-minded, grounded in the way he interacted with my healthcare story. Engaging with him about my health felt like a dialogue - each of us helping the other understand He seemed to genuinely care about my well-being, and was self-aware of how his specific role as a neuro-ophthalmologist could contribute to that. He wrote his office note in such a way as to be as useful as possible for future practitioners in an on-going diagnosis, w/o over/understepping his scope.
