My first visit with an injury, the doctor seemed to be a “no-excuses” personality doctor, which I thought could be a good thing. He didn’t seem to be compassionate or take my injury as seriously as it felt for me. However,I have learned today that he doesn’t seem to truly care about his patients. This doctor seems to be knowledgeable, but it is not worth dealing with his cold bedside manner. He literally screamed at me for being 12 min late after secretaries promised me that it was not a big deal at all through both a call and an email. I didn’t know it meant I’d lose my appointment time, but I guess I got pushed back by a person as a result, which would have been understandable if it were properly communicated to me when I called. Only go to this doctor if you have thick skin.

I have been a patient of Dr. Cohen for many years and he had always been a sweetheart and helpful with all the aches and pains I have in my knees and shoulder. He is the best and listens to thepatient taking his time to find out the issue at hand. There aren’t too many of his kind left in the doctor world.

Dr. Cohen is one of the best surgeons I've worked with. He is kind, funny, helps to make me feel at ease and does not push surgery. I have known Dr. Cohen for 6+ years. He's done two menisci repairs andwill do my knee replacements as soon as I'm ready. Love him & his staff.

Dr. Cohen is an awesome Orthopedist. Knows his stuff and cares about his patients. I wasn't sure if I needed an MRI and it felt like overkill, but he was right to do it. It uncovered a break that wasn't detectablewith an x-ray and ruled out ligament/meniscus damage. So grateful to be under his care.

He was very friendly and explained all the possible outcomes of what my pain could be from, very clearly. He also gave me an exam first to make sure he was recommending the right course of treatment. You'd be surprised, butother doctors I have seen in NYC have not been so great. Plus the office was very nice and clean! I would definitely go here again if I needed to see an Ortho.

There was a discrepancy for the time. I had made it through 12:15 PM through the zocdoc website. I believe the doctor's office asked to make it earlier at 11:45 AM but I kept getting reminders (emails & texts) still confirming the time as 12:15 PM.

Dr, Cohen is excellent. I went to see him for a shoulder injury and he knew what the issue was right away. He was very knowledgeable and took me through everything I needed to know as well as what all myoptions were. I felt relieved after speaking with him and will definitely visit him again should the need arise.

I have been living in NYC for the last 8 years and have disliked nearly every medical professional I've seen. The last doctor I saw before Dr. Cohen was great, but their office stopped taking my insurance. My wife recommended Dr.Cohen and was so pleasantly surprised by his bedside manner, his care for his patients, and the way he explains everything in plain English without making you feel dumb. I have every confidence that he will be able to help me with my knee issues.

Dr. Cohen seemed very straightforward and upbeat. He was unable to read my x-ray which is troubling but hopefully will do so later and get back to me with any issues. He treated my knee and I will monitor to seehow long the shot lasts and if other issues develop.

Dr. Cohen was just so nice and patient. I had seen another Dr in the Columbus Circle area twice before for a recurring knee issue and was just always left feeling badly, like I was wasting this guy's time. I wentto Dr. Cohen as a second opinion and wish I had gone to him from the beginning. He was so patient and attentive. He asked what was wrong and listening while I spoke, waited for me to finish, and then was just so nice about my options. He went over my MRI and told me things that were on it that the first doctor never even mentioned. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen and although I want my issue to be resolved, I kinda hope I get to go back to him again!

Listened while I was explaining my symptoms. Took time to explain why having an MRI on my foot was the best way forward (I had already had an x-ray previously). Also took time to cover the options of what the outcomecould be but tried to assure me that whatever the outcome he would put a treatment plan in place.

Dr. Cohen was very professional and listened to my history and concerns before immediately giving a diagnosis. He sent me to get x-rays and was able to do a follow up on the same day as my first appointment. I wasreally afraid that it was going to be a long, drawn out process. I ended up having a cortisone shot in my shoulder and then going for therapy. At first it was quite painful and I was really afraid that the shot was maybe a mistake. But now my shoulder feels much better and my range of movement is much improved. It's only been a couple of weeks since my initial appointment, but I feel like I am definitely on the mend.
