I’ve been with Dr Cohen for many years for a very rare autoimmune illness. He is very knowledgeable and caring as well as patient. Gets very high scores from me. Between he and my Great God I’m alive.

I've been with him for more than a decade and probably wouldn't be walking without him. He listens to you and explains things clearly. Yes, you have to work with him and follow his recommendations but that's the only way to deal with RA. Yes, I've recommended him and his staff. Why wouldn't I?

Seems to know a lot about RA but is also a bit on auto pilot. Provides hand outs regarding conditions and meds, but it is difficult to get any answers at all to questions in between visits. Did not recommend folic acid with methotrexate.
