Dr Cohen is an excellent doctor. I came out of my first surgery able to lift my hand right, right out of recovery which was impossible before.. I'm preparing for another surgery with Dr. Cohen and I feel very confident in his abilities. I would not have any surgery on my spine by anyone else. Dr. Cohen's PA-C Jennifer is an excellent addition to his staff. I feel very confident when talking to her..

Dr Cohen is a skilled surgeon and a kind person. His nurses and staff are also exceptional people who care deeply for their patients. My experience was 100% effective and I am completely recovered with problems resolved. I can't say enough how great these people are.

I have had two back surgeries performed by Dr Cohen. He is a gifted neurosurgeon and I am deeply grateful to him! I highly recommend him to anyone needing back surgery.

When I first met Dr. Cohen it was on referral from Providence Emergency Medicine in Anchorage. I was in poor shape. My arms and legs were weak to the point of being mostly unusable. The ER diagnosed me as having 4 cervical disks pressing on my spinal cord. Dr Cohen scheduled me for surgery with little wait. I was able to walk out of the hospital less than a week later. 4 level ACDF fixed me up pretty well. Thank You Dr Cohen it was a most wonderful Christmas gift
