Dr. Cohen was my doctor for 5 years before moving to the other coast. She is very knowledgeable, patient, and professional. My first visit with her was very clinical and direct; but, she warms up to you each visit and you can trust her decision making. Visits never feel rushed and she will ask you questions that you may not be readily thinking about. Her current practice in Silver Spring also holds a lab where you can conveniently leave blood work.

Was not able to schedule an appointment until September! It's May and I'm sick today. May not be alive by September. But oh well...am not a big fan of practitioners anyway Might just have to go to the E.R. Don't see the point of having a PCP if they are not available when you need them.
