I am so glad I chose Dr. Cohen as my primary physician many years ago! He has always been available in times of need. And, as his practice grew there was always a great staff there ready to make sure I got the attention I needed. Dr. Cohen is friendly and always willing to spend time with you and answer questions. He has actually made personal calls to check up on progress and to make sure I was okay. There's no other MD like Dr. Cohen. He's a rare gift to our community!

Office hours are inconvient 830AM to 430PM, with an hour break for lunch. Hard for people who work to make an appointment. In addition, there is sometimes a long wait to check out. Lastly, they do not validate in the parking garage.

Curt, Distant , Offensive And Unprofessional! First Meeting With This Recommended Internist ; Weird ! Immediately , Greeted With A Cold " I Just Don't Understand Why You Are You Here?" Who , Was It a That. Sent You Here?" Then After A Brief Review Of My Chart; He Shakes His Head , NO, "Good Luck;" And And Then Directs Points Me To The Exist Sign! It Would Appear That P Cohen , MD Prefer's Patient's With His Same Faith Or Background. Most Unimpressed In Every Respect!

I could not think of a better doctor to trust for health advice than Paul Cohen. I have been a patient for years. In 2008 I had a life threatening event stemming from an emergency room misdiagnose. During my hospital stay he kept in contact and made sure I was well informed and guided us through some critical decisions. I would highly recommend Dr Cohen and his team.

There is no better physician in the Syracuse area than Paul Cohen. His staff is excellent. You can't go wrong with any of the providers. When I moved here 25 years ago, the company physician recommended Dr. Cohen to me. I've since found other physicians that see Dr. Cohen. He is thorough and knowledgeable. I have seen him successfully diagnose several difficult cases, keeping me and my family members out of the hospital. I trust his judgment, and if there's trouble I want him on my team.

Dr. Cohen made me feel like I was wasting his time and my time for making an appointment. He told me he could have handled my case over the phone. I am a very healthy individual who was suffering from vertigo. All he did was give me a prescription for motion sickness and told me I had to let it run its course. A friend who is a physical therapist suggested I try the Epley maneuver which I found on youtube and tried after suffering for six days. Has Dr. Cohen never heard of this procedure?
