Dr Cohen took expert care of my skin problems finding 3 cancers which were removed over the course of my seeing him for 3 years. He took his time and was very thorough. He was the best dermatologist I had and I am 93 years old , a retired doctor. I miss his care.

He is very careful in his examinations and takes great care to make sure that I understand his recommendations, spending as much time as is needed. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen to anyone who is looking for a top notch dermatologist.
