What People Say About Dr. Richard Cohn, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Nice personality, BUT... dangerous. He ignored significant warning signs that I presented with in an emergency appointment made due to me feeling so poorly... my BP was 80/60, but Dr. Cohn didn't even listen to my heart or check me out in any way... even though I had had a history of cardio-myopathy HIGH BP and AFIB...all he did was to reduce dosage on one of my meds. Two days later I was in the hospital with life-threatening AFIB and other major issues. Was critical and almost died.

I have been a patient of Dr Cohn since the late 90's! I normally do not write reviews, but lately really appreciate them myself when looking up doctors, so thought I would rate mine to help others. Dr Cohn is very patient, really listens to any concerns and takes his time going over all results and compares to past tests. His staff is just amazing and make everything run smoothly! They follow up with you after any tests to give results much faster than any other office I deal with! great guy!!

This office is out of date with procedures and knowledge of treatments. They refused to send records to UofA TAVR clinic and, contrary to regulations, Dr Cohn still handwrites his patient notes. He withheld information on current procedures to correct a failing aortic valve. Dr Cohn was asked on several visits if there was an option other than open heart surgery to fix the valve he said no we just have to support the symptoms. The UofA TAVR clinic has been open since 2011, -1% risk ,valve rep
