What People Say About Dr. Sheldon Cohn, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I have already warned my family and friends about Dr. Cohn. I spend more time waiting to see him, then being evaluated by him. Rarely does he do a physical exam on me and my appointments average less than 5-10 minutes. I am desperately trying to find a new physician willing to treat and help improve my quality of life. Dr. Cohn has offered no hope & has gone so far as to prevent/refuse to allow me from seeing a colleague for further eval. He is more concerned about $$$ earned than "do no harm."

Dr. Cohn truly cares about his patients! He went above and beyond in my care! I was able to get an appointment quickly, surgery was scheduled without delay, and my postop visit was great! He took his time explaining things to me. His nurse, Nikki, was very kind and had a great rapport with the patients! Dr. Cohn is extremely knowledgable! I can't say enough good things about him!

I am about 2 weeks post surgery on both of my knees. For the first time in years I have relief from burning, aching and slipping knees. Dr. Cohn was the first doctor to give me options to relieve the pain. He did a great job and even with two knees just operated on, I was able to walk up the stairs as soon as I got home. He is the best surgeon I have ever had. I am so grateful for being his patient.

I went to Dr. Cohen and he ordered an MRI that indicated my ACL was gone. When I came out of surgery my leg felt better than it had in years. I thought I had sciatica in that leg for about 10 years the pain was so crippling it felt like a screwdriver was being shoved in my heel and by side hurt so much I just could not sleep. I never told but this surgery changed my life. I have had no pain in that leg in 5 years!! He is a tremendous surgeon and I could not be happier with my outcome! Brooks

Dr. Cohn is an excellent doctor. He has with him an excellent staff, especially Lisa ... Dr. Cohn's secretary. She helps with paperwork your insurance company needs, along with added advice. She's a 5?, too. Just overall a great surgeon, a great assistant, and a great Secretary.

Dr. Cohn always fits you in the schedule and comes in the room prepared with results and doesn't have to run back and forth to retrieve the results from the x-rays, or items you have been a patient for over 15 years.

Dr. Cohn is a great doctor. He is very concerned about your well being and is very interested on what you think about your medical treatment. He wanted your input. I had arthroscopic surgery on a Monday and was back to work the next Wednesday. That should tell you how great of a doctor he is. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is planning to have surgery on your knees. He will spend as much time with you until you are comfortable with his treatment.
