Dr. Cohen was awesome! His whole staff was very caring and helpful. They could tell I was a little nervous with having my wisdom teeth removed, and they put my mind at ease. Dr. Cohen was very transparent with the pricing,and worked with me to find the best way for me maximize my insurance benefits, and minimize my out of pocket. The procedure went very well, and I was left with very little pain to recover from. Dr. Cohen even called me that night to make sure I was all good! I'd highly recommend Dr. Cohen to anyone!

Was told by a very rude receptionist that I had been texted a whole entire hour before my 9 AM appointment that the doctor would not be in the office. Unprofessional staff!

Great experience. This was my first time getting a tooth pulled. I was very nervous, but Dr. Cohen and his staff were very understanding. The actual tooth pulling did not hurt as much as the needle to num the area. Hisoffice is absolutely beautiful. I will most definitely continue to see him for all of my oral surgery needs.

Dr. Cohen is terrific. I saw him a few years ago to pull out my wisdom teeth. He was incredibly kind and helpful. I still remember -- he called me a few hours after my procedure to see how I wasfeeling. I had never had a doctor call me to follow-up before, and I thought that was truly wonderful. I recommend him to anyone who needs an oral surgeon.

I thought the office was nice. The prices were outrageous. Had my procedure done for less than half of what he quoted me. He also claimed to take my insurance (zocdoc site listed him as participating). I found out he didn't take it once I got there. Disappointing.

Dr. Cohen is extremely professional, honest and caring doctor. He took his time to explain the whole situation to me, recommended treatment plan and talked me through all steps involved. Despite having to deal with bad news he made me feelvery comfortable. He already performed the surgery and I am feeling great. They took great care of me during prep for the surgery and also called to check up on afterwards. His team, Renata and Rachel, are equally great to deal with. The office is extremely well equipped and spotless! I would highly recommend dr. Cohen and his team to anyone.

I had my wisdom teeth removed here, and it was a quick and painless procedure. I also had a speedy recovery and no pain!

He is probably an excellent oral surgeon (as he has lots of credentials) but he is not a general dentist. He saw me for less than a total of 3 or 4 minutes and said I was fine from what hecould tell (after some probing) except I needed a cleaning. I asked if he would make some slight modifications of a mouth guard that was bothering me (from another dentist in another state) and he told me he would not do it because he said he might break it and then he'd be responsible for making another one. He referred me to another dentist but not before charging me a "small" fortune. His office staff is personable and friendly.

I took my mother for an emergency visit she had severe tooth pain . He has no patience with elderly and is not what I would consider an emergency dentist he is an oral surgeon. If you are younger and needan oral surgeon he may be able to help you

Dr. Cohen is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and patient. I went to see him to have my wisdom teeth (impacted) remove. He took a detailed scanned, and explained to me potential issues. I was hesitant to have all four of my teethtaken out at once, but the procedure turned out painless and the recovery was speedy. Dr. Cohen patiently answered all my questions throughout the process and even called the afternoon of the procedure to check to see how I was doing. All of his staff are also very friendly and helpful; Rinata and Rachel both went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. Not to mention, the office is absolutely beautiful. Overall, I could not have imagined my wisdom teeth removal to have gone better than it did at Dr. Cohen's. The only tip I would give is to call the office to make an appointment instead of using ZocDoc. Because ZocDoc appointments yield a high percentage of no-shows, Dr. Cohen will only see ZocDoc patients between his regular patients, leading to a potential long wait for the first appointment (the wait for me was 45 min). This can be avoided by calling for an appointment; I had no problems with my follow-ups and was seen right away.

Dr. Ruben was absolutely fantastic. I needed to see a dentist, but he was able to look at my teeth and take an x-ray even though he is an oral surgeon. After that, he immediately got me an appointment with adentist down the street, and even stopped by personally to see how I was doing. Although I cannot speak to his skills as an oral surgeon, his care for his patients is evident.

The staff was very nice and helpful. This place is outstanding? The receiptionist went beyond her role and called the referral dentist herself and made the appointment for me.

Prompt, professional. Very nice office and nice equipment. While doctors just take X-Rays, Dr. Cohen took a 3D scan of my mouth. Also called later in the evening after the surgery to make sure everything was fine.
