      I started seeing Dr. Cohen about 21 or 22 years ago. He treated me for pain in my knee. I had partial knee replacement surgery on my left knee in 2002. Arthritis started in my right knee and I needed surgery again. This time I had a total knee replacement in 2007. I had no trouble recovering from either of the replacements, very little rehab needed. August 2017 I had total hip replacement on right hip, very short rehab again. Dr. Cohen is a very dedicated physician, very friendly and caring.

      Very Friendly, Very Professional, Very knowledgeable, EXPERT TOP OF THE LINE. I cannot speak for everyone, but my post surgical experience was pain free. I would recommend if anyone needs a knee replaced, Dr. Cohen is the epitome of professionals. I am very happy, very satisfied, and grateful for my new knee. entering my second year. Follow His instructions to the Tee, and you can get the same results.
