He's a nice guy, but every appointment just feels like he cannot wait to get you out the door as soonas possible. He's a little blase about concerns you might have. He's probably a good doctor, but I wish he would slow down a bit and act a bit more interested in what you're saying to him, without thinking of his conveyor belt of patients that he needs to get through.

The wait was not bad. The doctor brushed off a lot of my concerns. Still, I got the service I went for. The nurse assistant was nice.

Recommend 100% - VERY pleased with my first visit to Dr Cohen’s office, staff was great, space was clean and atmospheric, Dr Cohen was easy to talk to and suggested a natural approach to treating my anxiety by prescribing an organicCBD oil instead of giving me Valium. I’ve never been more at ease during a doctor visit and will definitely be planning all future appointments with Dr Cohen. Thank you Dr Cohen!

This doctor doesn’t really care. He did one test for a gastro issue, no bloodwork, and then told me to take Nexium. During the visit i tried to ask several questions, and he dismissed most of them, tried to tell meI should do 1 test at a time, each on a different visit, even though he admitted he wasn’t sure what the illness was. Clearly just looking for quick $$$. When I tried to call him back and leave messages after the issue persisted and worsened, complete silence. I had to find another Doctor. That said, his staff is wonderful - very kind, timely, and welcoming.

Always happy with Dr. Cohen and his staff. I only wish that when I made the appointment online for my annual physical there was a disclaimer that those now only occur between 10a-1p. My original appointment was scheduled for 2:30p andaccepted as such weeks in advance. Only found out the day before that this would not be allowed and had to completely upend my schedule to accommodate this new policy.

I haven’t been to a doctor in years—partially because I’ve always hated going to the doctor, and then simply because I’m always so busy. Walking into Dr. Cohen’s office relieved all of my worries! The waiting area was comfortable and welcomingwith a relaxed feel. Dr. Cohen was incredibly friendly and erasedall of my doctor concerns. So happy I’ve now found my go-to doctor!

Barry Cohen is a good Doctor, but the woman at the front desk is very rude and unprofessional. She is very disorganized - had my insurance information wrong, my insurance said they never had a claim from that office, anyways a disaster.

Spectacularly unprofessional office. I’ve waited two months to get results that were supposed to take two days. I’ve called weekly and am always told I’ll receive a call back that very afternoon. I’m also always told, “this is my first dayworking here”. Eight weeks later I’m still trying to get my results… If you don’t need anything beyond one visit, he’s an average doctor to see in a pinch. But the high turnover at the office, the unprofessional behavior of the staff, coupled with the lack of follow through gives me pause.

I did not have a good experience with Dr. Cohen. My exam was rushed and I didn't feel listened too. I complained of a hand ingury and he blew it off due to typing or spending time on my phone. Itactually tured out to be that I have arthritus and need treatment. Little to say I will not be coming back.

Doctor portion was fine, but the receptionist hung up immediately after relaying the message that my lab results were normal. I could not get a word in edgewise after. The minimal aesthetics and the above-and-beyond customer service isn'tsomething that I personally need as long as the diagnosis and testing is accurate (which it was), but I'd appreciate my questions to be heard and to maybe have next steps (as my symptoms weren't clarified at all). I'll be going to another doctor moving forward to have my symptoms addressed.

Dr. Cohen is wonderful, I always feel like he really listens and if he doesn’t have the answer he’ll refer me to someone else who is equally competent who does. He takes the time to explain his diagnosis and never keeps me waiting. Awesome doctor!

Although I've seen him for many years, I often feel rushed thru my visit. I recently went thru full blown bronchitis that last over three weeks into another infection, went back to him, said it "worries him", it certainly did ME!!He sent me for an x-ray and hasn't returned a phone call or email in three days. Very disappointing. Very unprofessional regardless of results.
