I have had two spinal surgeries by Dr. Cohen. He is a gifted surgeon. I could barely walk or function before lower back surgery. My neck pain required two plates. The only pain I suffered after surgery was a sore throat. I continue to see him as my primary back doc.

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....Read More

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.
