Very impatient he does not care for the needs of the patient or communicate with them the appointments don’t last for over ten minutes and he does not answer any questions for the needs of the patient. A friend of mine had a surgery done by him but instead of getting better her vision actually got worse. He dismisses any concerns and does not provide solutions for it. I don’t recommend this doctor.

Dr. Cohlmia performed surgery on my eyes. The entire procedure and experience were great, and I felt at ease throughout the process. He gave me very good vision after my cataract surgeries. He is an excellent and caring doctor.

The office staff was very kind. I had a long wait time, but the office has a pleasant atmosphere so I didn't mind. However, when Dr. Cohlmia came to do my assessment he took very little time to check my eyes and stopped midway through. My appointment lasted about 7 minutes. I don't know if it was a bad day, but I was very disappointed with the level of care he offered.

This was my first eye exam in years (decades actually). Dr. Cohlmia's admin staff got me into an exam room right at my appointment time (when does that ever happen?!) and Dr. Cohlmia was there within a minute. He was friendly and the exam was quick. Overall a great experience for a medical appointment. I definitely recommend him.
