My family and I have been seeing Dr Cohen for years. I usually do not stay with a doctor if I don't care for the staff. Dr Cohen is that good, so I made exceptions. If I am to rate only Dr Cohen she gets 5 stars in diagnostics. Her staff, might get a 3 or 2, because I never found the receptionist to be warm and understanding to others. But with that said, the receptionist is gone, so the staff gets a 3 or 4.

Office staff is very rude and unprofessional. Calling that office is like calling someone you've been in a fight with. Very nasty and rude. How can that be your point of contact? It's a shame. I'm sure Dr. Cohen is aware of her staff's behavior. People are calling because they need help and need to be treated not yelled at and abused.

Very impersonal, no bedside manner at all. Abrupt, cold and and made me feel like I was bothering her.
