Dr. Cohen has done carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands. I have also seen him for cortisone shots over the years for trigger finger on 3 fingers. Hi listens to your problem and then discusses your options. He is an excellent hand doctor.

Very friendly. Listens, explains everything in detail, and gets to the point. Conservative approach to treatment. Always looked forward to visits. No long wait time in lobby or individual waiting room. Total time spent for each visit was approximately 15-20 min's.

Dr Cohen is professional, he surgically repaired my carpal tunnel issues with great success. Each appointment is on time and his staff is friendly and efficient. He uses Amsurg Surgery Center and it matches his style of professional care.
