Verified Patient Reviews
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't something 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.
Everything went smoothly, quickly and left happy! Filling out the new patient information didn't take long and was easy to follow. Minor difficulty finding the room.
Barry was abrupt, didn’t listen thoroughly to the patients concern, skipped over requested tests, simple diagnosis and recommendation was to meditate more.
Dr. Cohen was very knowledgeable and helpful! Would recommend and will be back.
I have been a patient of Dr. Cohen's for the past 6 years and have no complaints! He answers all your questions thoroughly and also - mindful of your time out of the office!
Very nice man, makes you feel comfortable and takes the time to listen. Genuinely cares about your wellbeing. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a primary care doctor.
Thumbs up all around! No poor marks.
Dr. Cohen is efficient yet thorough with great bedside manner. You're in and out in no time at all. I would highly recommend Dr. Cohen if you are looking for a GP in the area.
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!
Great doctor. Very observant, professional, and cool.
Dr. Cohen was great! Professional, prompt and compassionate. Answered all of my questions, and gave me some great advice.
Quick and friendly Doctor visit.
The front desk staff was very nice and Dr. Cohen was super helpful and answered all my questions. Will definitely be back.
Great experience, really appreciated Dr. Cohen’s advice and honesty. Happy with my decision to choose Dr. Cohen as my primary physician and have already recommended him to friends.
Great! Recommended to a friend and will definitely be going back :)
Another great visit to Barry Cohen's practice.
Barry was superb! His friendly & approachable bedside manner put me right at ease, the office was cozy & a convenient location and I got in right on time! 5-star experience all around!
knowledgeable physician who seems to take a pragmatic approach to medicine.
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.
Dr. Cohen is very sweet, honest and friendly. He is thorough and goes out of his way to make his patients feel comfortable.
Fast and efficient
Both the nurse and Dr. Barry were very friendly! I felt very comfortable throughout the entire visit and I am actually looking forward to my physical next year.
I went for my annual physical but ZocDoc does not clearly notify you that you need to fast before this appointment. The office has tried to put a disclaimer when you make an appointment but despite their best efforts you cannot see this explicitly if you are booking the appointment on your phone. I also think this is the first time I've actually seen Dr. Cohen, I usually get an NP. He wasn't my favorite, maybe it was the misunderstanding about the fasting thing but he just seems like a bit of a know it all who talks over his patients. But, I was pretty annoyed about the fasting thing so take my review with a grain of salt. Nurses/Assistants/Front desk people are all great and very nice!
Great experience! highly recommend
Amazing as usual with Dr. Cohen and his staff. Incredibly quick check-in and I was even seen 5 mins before my appointment time. Front desk staff, medical assistant, and Dr. Cohen were all super pleasant (as always). I've been going to him for years!
Helpful staff and nice facility. Doctor was good but was my first visit so early to opine. Visit was shorter than expected though
Dr. Cohen answered all my questions and takes a very pragmatic approach to medicine that seems to be lacking elsewhere. Definitely recommend.
Per usual, very informative, very efficient, very professional and much appreciated!
Quick & painless. Dr. Cohen is always prompt, friendly and willing to listen and work with his patients.
Great dr and very personal.
He is friendly, personable, knowledgeable, and seemed to geniunely care. Was fast and thorough.
The entire staff here are welcoming, personable, and very efficient!
Dr. Barry Cohen was very professional and knowledgeable. The staff at the office excellent and really care about their patients. Overall great experience considering I don't like going to doctor's appointments, would definitely recommend!
Dr. Cohen was great, super friendly, and very knowledgeable. At several times during the appt. he stopped and asked if I understood what he was saying or needed addtional explanation. My only complaint is the check in process uses a very outdated electronic device to input your history. It took a while to use because the touch screen was lousy, and while I'm sure it saves his staff time not having to deal with paper forms, it was much more frustrating to use than a pen and paper from the patient's perspective.
Dr Cohen and his team display a healthy combination of professionalism and friendliness. The office was clean, spacious, minimalistic and cozy. The registration process was easy with the use of a digital device. I had a very good experience.
He's a really nice and personable guy. And very understanding. His staff is excellent as well. Highly recommended.
Excellent as usual!
Best in town.
Dr. Cohen has such a nice, easy manner - very straightforward, no jargon or weirdness.
Been going to Dr. Cohen for a few years now. He's no non sense, gives it to you straight, friendly guy.
I love everyone here. I've been a patient for about 6 years.
Great place, great doctor, have been going there for years
He's been my PP for the last several years. Cool Soho location and office. Easy going but well attened bedside manner. Great NP's if Dr. Cohen himself is not available.
The staff make you feel rushed through your appointment and tend to have long wait times in the waiting room despite booking an appointment ahead of time.
I was originally very happy with Dr. Cohen when I first started seeing him. I even recommended him to others who started seeing him. Unfortunately, the quality of my visits have gone down. He is always very rushed and barely spends more than 3 minutes with me. I have since found a new primary care physician as a result.
I have been going to him for years, he's great, gets to the point, and is very informative.
Very quick visit yet very thorough. He listened to what my needs were and provided me with many options to remedy my situation. He also provided coupons for prescriptions that were available at the time.
As always, Dr. Cohen was quick, direct, and professional.
As a new patient I had arrived early to complete all necessary paperwork. Check in process was smooth. I was the first patient in the afternoon and was seen 40 minutes later than scheduled.
He was efficient and attentive. We got a quick test taken care of and scheduled a follow up.
Dr. Cohen was great! Attentive and helpful!
I've seen a lot of doctors on ZocDoc over the years, and Dr. Cohen is definitely one of the best. He's a tech-forward doctor, which makes the entire appointment/sign in/follow up process a breeze. He's really friendly, down-to-earth, and smart. He's definitely my go-to general practitioner.
Barry was great. He made me feel totally comfortable and was personable while keeping it professional. My experience was great.
I've seen Dr Cohen 5-6 times now and each time has been helpful.
Been a patient of Dr. Cohen for about 15 years. For small things (allergies, colds, flu) other reviews are accurate he's pretty fast, efficient and to the point. The few times that I have had more serious illnesses concerns or scares, he's always taken the time to talk to me thoroughly, give me options, or request more tests. He has even called to check up on me on weekends. I think some of these reviews are misleading with his bedside manner. You have an allergy, he'll prescribe you allergy pills, shake your hand and send you on your way. But if there is anything to be concerned about he has always been nothing but thorough. Not that this matters when choosing a dr, but he's also just a really cool guy and has a great down to earth demeanor. Makes him easy to talk to.
Easy location, nice small personal space, wait time was ok, but still nearly 30 minutes. My appointment felt rushed, felt like I saw him for 45 seconds, maybe I'm asking too much but I expect to try form some kind of relationship with my general doctor.
Love everyone in this office!
Whilst I have only had a couple of appointments, I have found Dr Cohen to be an efficient and congenial doctor.
Dr. Cohen is the BEST!! So glad he is my PCP ??
I'd strongly urge anyone with an urgent matter to avoid Dr. Cohen's office. He sent me to a specialist with the warning that a huge health concern was looming ("Always be near a hospital," he said), only to get the results back and ignore my calls for three days — either by having a receptionist tell me he'd call only to have him not call, or by not answering the phone at all throughout the entire day. I had to call somewhere around ten times in one day to get a hold of a receptionist. Of course, when we finally spoke, he didn't have much to say at all beyond that the tests didn't show any issues — even though the symptoms are still entirely present. In short, he was only willing to test one hypothesis and then drag the results out for days. Avoid.
This doctor was excellent and listened to everything that I had to say. He's very accommodating and knowledgable
Wonderful Doctor!!!! I am so happy to have found him!!!!*****
Dr. Barry Cohen is a top notch professional. Would recommend to anybody.
Best doctor visit I have ever had!
He's a good guy. Very professional bedside manner, and answered all of my questions thoroughly.
Dr. Cohen is great and the office staff is very friendly. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a primary care doctor.
Great first visit. Looking forward to having Dr. Cohen as my primary care physician.
Good dr. And experience. I didn't feel rushed. He took the time to listen to my concerns and make a diagnosis. Performed the tests needed in office.
Friendly, efficient and convenient.
Dr. Cohen is amazing!!! So glad he is my PCP*****
Good dude. Straight shooter. Admitted to not knowing the answer to a side medical question which was admirable.
Wonderful doctor, great guy, awesome practice.
Really excellent - the wait time is almost negligible and Dr. Cohen was extremely receptive to what I had to say before giving a diagnosis. I like him!
Excellent visit with Dr. Cohen. He was patient, thorough, and listened to my concerns. Highly recommend!
As a patient of Dr. Cohen and his team for a few years now, I can honestly say it's the most positive, consistent experience I've had, compared to other doctors I'd seen prior. Highly recommended.
Very professional and kind staff, had testing results back to me exactly when they said they would.
Dr. Cohen is the man! Always a pleasure.
Dr Cohen was in too much of a rush - I felt like he barely thought about my symptoms before deciding what it was.
Best doctor ever. Seriously.
Seamless process. Was seen by the nurse - she was great!
Dr. Cohen has been my PCP for years and I cannot say enough positive things about his practice. His entire team is friendly, professional, and attentive. I highly recommend Dr.Cohen for any/all medical needs.
Love the office space and Susannah is amazing.
I've been with Dr. Cohen for years now, but his lack of bedside manner have me thinking about switching to someone else. At times he can seem to have little patience for you talking about how you're feeling and often has a condescending attitude when you try to explain your symptoms. I understand that in this Internet culture, he must get tired of people WebMD'ing themselves before they get to his doctor's office. But I've realized, visit after visit, he doesn't seem to put much value in empathy or giving you any peace of mind. Rather he seems to just want you in and out as fast as possible.
Visit was great, doc was great. Only thing I'm upset about was the prescriptions he prescribed me. My insurance wouldn't even cover one and the other needed a doctor authorization. I told him that would probably happen and he assured me, no, since it's generic it won't. Well it did and now I'm without my medication for the entire weekend.... Awesome.
I was seen right away and the doctor was great! He asked questions but also got straight to the point.
I came in for several issues, one of which required an xray. No tests, no recommendations or prognoses. I called several times, and never got a response - not even about the results of my xray. I have to go to another doctor for the same exact reasons. Thanks a lot. Terrible.
Great Doctor.If you are looking for a person who cares and its straight forward,He is your guy.
Quick and to the point!
The single best experience I've ever had at a doctor's office. Dr. Cohen was extraordinarily knowledgable and friendly.
Great experience. It was my first time seeing Dr. Cohen and everything went fine. Nice guy, got right down to business, answered all my questions and got me the vaccinations I need for my upcoming trip. His staff was great too, I would book another appointment with the office.
Dr. Cohen is great! Lovely bedside manner and thorough treatment.
Dr. Cohen, and all the staff, is fantastic. Highly recommended to everyone.
Great Doctor, 2nd time back
Marissa the nurse practitioner was lovely! She was very thorough and really spent time with me. I would definitely go back again.
Great appointment as usual!
Great, as always!
Excellent on all fronts. Highly recommended.
This was my first visit to a Doctor in years. Dr. Cohen was prompt, very clear and efficient. The Nurse was also very knowledgeable and took care of everything in a very professional manner.
Quick, painless, very informative and helpful.
Friendly doctor. Nice office. Seen 10-15 minutes after scheduled time.
Dr Cohen is a truly wonderful doc. He is attentive and professional but also makes you feel relaxed and well cared for.
Office was very friendly and helpful. This was my first time here and I would definitely go back. Dr. Cohen was straight to the point, the visit did not take very long at all, but it was a genuine and caring interaction so it didn't seem rushed. Overall professional and comfortable experience.
Dr. Cohen is extremely intelligent and shows confidence when speaking with you. He listened to everything I had to say (I had a long list of questions), answers everything and even double checks to make sure everything was addressed.
Great - no fuss, he cares - great!
Kind, personable, friendly, and approachable. Dr. Cohen was amazing and I'm very happy he's my primary physician.
Staff was very friendly and helpful! Dr. Cohen was nice and attentive!
The doctor is very rushed, does not make the patient comfortable to ask any questions, and when asked, makes you feel uncomfortable for asking, and seems to be in a hurry to rush you out. Funny, as I came significantly earlier than my appontment time, so it's not like I was the last patient. Would never go again, as this is not a doctor that cares about his patients, and would not recommend to anyone. I have been searching for a good physician after moving to the area, but this is not it. The office itself is in a nice location and is nicely decorated, but that is the one upside about the visit.
Dr. Cohen was quick and to the point yet thorough. I didn't like that a med student 'took the reigns' at the beginning of the appt without warning and I had to repeat things but beyond that everything was great.
I visited Dr. Cohen for an injury when I wasn't able to get in to see my regular primary care physician. He was so warm and welcoming, walking through what he thought was going on while also providing concrete ideas for treatment. Even though I was just in for a quick appointment, he took the time to get to know me, asking me about my history and general life. I left the office feeling like I had a resolution. I will absolutely be back to see Dr. Cohen for my PCP visits!
Dr. Cohen and his staff are great. Very friendly, attentive, and efficient.
Excellent Service! Dr. Cohen gave me a flu shot and I honestly felt nothing. It was so quick. This guy has skills.
I'm a very nervous patient and Dr Cohen made me feel very much at ease. I love how modern the office is in terms of technology. Short wait and great doctor!
Really smart, right to the point great Doc.
Great doctor and staff. Gave me plenty of time to ask questions and discuss all my issues.
He didn't believe anything I said about my dizziness
lovely staff, great nurse practitioners and Dr. Cohen was attentive to concerns and questions.
In my visits to Dr. Cohen's office over the past two years, I've found Dr. Cohen himself to be friendly, capable and professional, although not a great match for me personally as a primary care physician. I'm interested in medicine and tend to ask questions about health, treatments and fitness even when everything's okay, and Dr. Cohen was less responsive to my curiosity than my physician in my last city. He practiced a totally calm, cool style that I'm sure many patients find comforting--just not quite right for me. The overall negative feedback here is for the office he runs. Each of my visits to Dr. Cohen's practice left me with months of increasingly threatening invoices from medical testing facilities, in one case for a routine lipid panel (should be fully covered by my insurance) and once for a routine STI screening (again, should be fully covered). In the first case, calls resulted twice in additional partial coverage, and ended with me paying the small final uncovered amount out of pocket in frustration. In the second case, again after multiple rounds of phone calls to my insurance and the billing laboratory, it was confirmed that the claim had been rejected because the office coded me for "weather exposure" rather than the proper preventative screening. I continued to receive bills even after the mistake had been discovered, and another round of phone calls revealed the lab never received the promised updated diagnosis codes from Dr. Cohen's office. I can jump through hoops to get the office's mistakes corrected now, but I don't trust Dr. Cohen's practice to take care of me if I'm not so healthy or patient in the future.
Friendly, patient, and efficient. Thanks!
really nice and friendly guy, seems to take the most practical course of treatment.
I had a good experience during my first trip to Barry Cohen's office today. The office was nice, clean, and some tasteful tunes on while I was waiting and filling out some forms. I was seen pretty much immediately after I handed the receptionist my completed forms. The nurse and doctor Barry made me feel comfortable about my concerns, and were helpful with prescriptions, and advice. They also took the time to answer my questions before seeing me off. I'd happily go back here.
He seemed a bit indifferent and rushed during my exam.
I had gotten the date of my appointment wrong but the receptionist was able to get me in to see the doc to save me a trip from coming back the next day. I only had a short wait and Dr. Cohen was great!
I have been to Barry Cohen's office numerous times and I have always been treated very well. The staff is professional and everyone there is informative, helpful and kind. I can make appointments a couple days before and I get into the office within thirty minutes or less.
My initial visit with Dr. Cohen was pretty good. He seemed attentive and listened. However, after getting blood work done and coming back 4 or 5 days later, he completely forgot about me. His opinions about my symptoms completely changed and he ended up with what seemed to be a specific diagnosis at first, which turned out to be a generic one. I would not recommend this doctor based upon rushed feeling I got (especially follow up visit) and inconsistency. Getting in and out is GREAT but I'd rather wait and get great care.
I met with his np. Susannah who was wonderful!
Dr. Cohen's office has a very warm, but professional vibe. The doctor and his staff ask a lot of questions and I felt comfortable doing the same. Great experience overall.
Great GP. Highly evidence based and a nice guy.
Dr. Cohen is awesome!
I've finally found a primary care doctor that I like, and feel comfortable with. I highly recommend him, and his staff. Excellent care.
Great doctor. Very friendly and made me feel comfortable.
The office feels healthy and Dr. Cohen & his staff exude courtesy and professionalism. Electronic records is great too!
Dr. Cohen was great. His med student was a little spacey which is annoying when it concerns your health but the manner in which he corrected and held the student to being accurate and honest was reassuring.
he was very friendly, and sincere. i went in for a routine check up and mention how i've been feeling... he quickly caught up to my symptoms and sent me off to do a further check up... i'm glad i went to see him!!
I like their electronic check-in tool -- only wish it had a back button. I wanted to correct one of my answers, but wasn't able to.
Office is super high tech and Dr. Cohen is incredibly friendly and patient when it comes to answering all my questions. I needed a new GP and am happy to have found one here!
Had a great experience. Dr. Cohen will be my new PCP.
Very smart, trustworthy man. Runs a tight ship.
Dr Cohen is great. Very professional, but friendly. He and his staff run a modern and efficient practice.
He was awesome. Quick, friendly, comprehensive
Always spectacular! My favorite doctor of all time. Perfect bedside manner, and an all around pleasure to visit every single time.
accurate, to the point, straight-forward, objective.
He has the best bedside manner and was very thorough. I also like that he does spring right for the prescription booklet, and gives more holistic suggestions and solutions first.
Dr. Cohen and Susannah Kerwin the NP are awesome!
Super short weight time. Got in & out but without being rushed. Really good experience.
Super informative, the staff and doctor himself are so kind with great bedside manner. So happy to have found a great doctor that I will continue to go back to.
Barry has been my doctor for a long time. He's awesome.
Great doc, I've been going to him for the past 13 years and there's a reason why I've kept with him all this time.
Dr. Cohen was excellent. There was no wait time. The office was very clean, sleek and tech savvy. I was in an out in less than 25 minutes - and this was my first appointment with this office! Dr. Cohen and his staff were very nice, casual and calm. I was very happy and will return to Dr. Cohen's office as needed.
Dr. Cohen is great - he's super personable. His staff is just as nice as he is. It's great to see a practice in NYC that gives such a great experience to patients. Will definitely be returning to Dr. Cohen for my healthcare needs in the future.
Seemed very to the point and professional.
Nice, relatable guy. Made me feel as if I was having an informed conversation.
I made an appointment with Dr. Cohen to fulfill requirements for official paperwork, but I didn't initially understand the full extent of the testing. I could not do the tests required on the day of my first appointment, so Dr. Cohen went out of his way to fit me in as soon as possible. His staff was both pleasant and professional. I would absolutely go back to Dr. Cohen.
I just found my new doctor.
He was very professional and my visit was short and sweet. He was also very cooperative and understanding when I got queasy during my stitches removal. I will definitely go back!
Meh. Just gave me a basic script and told me to wait out my stomach bug.
Dr. Cohen and his staff were very professional. Answered all of my questions and offered some great advice.
very friendly and helpful!:)
Love Dr. Cohen and his staff. He was very attentive to my concerns and ran all the tests necessary and then some to make sure everything was ok. I'll be back!
I met with Suzannah, the Nurse Practitioner and she was fantastic! Didn't catch the name of the receptionist, but she was also very nice and helpful. Their system for paperwork is digital and super cool/easy. I'm so happy I found this office!
SO efficient - really really liked him. and will make him my primary doc!
I was referred by a friend.. Great doctor! Very thorough! highly recommended
Always fast, efficient, and answers all my questions
Very knowledgeable - super easy
Dr. Cohen is my primary care physician 4 lyfe.
Very pleasant, quick, helpful
Overall a nice guy - very friendly, saw me tight away and answered most of my questions. He did not ask too many questions himself, or showed much interest on my situation. I talked about a chronic back pain and poorly-healing broken foot, and he just wrote me prescriptions without even looking at my foot.
dr cohen seemed very confident and knowledgeable which immediately put me at ease. he's polite and generous with information. i immediately found it easy to trust him, which is a big plus.
Barry is awesome.
Stylish, conveniently located office, friendly staff, and Dr. Cohen was thoughtful and efficient. Only objection: I filled out medical history form on a tablet with a stylus before the appointment (frustrating to type on that thing) - but then the information I provided didn't seem to be available during the appointment, since Dr. Cohen asked for the same information again. He mentioned that they were having some IT problems, though, so maybe that was why.
What a great guy! Very knowledgeable and caring - everything you want from a Doctor.
Dr. Cohen is professional and knowledgeable. He listened to me. Of course, he's a doctor, so he's busy, but I felt like we had a good chat. Recommended.
I will go to dr.cohen for EVERYTHING. He does not mess around and helps you get right to the point. Great bedside manner and very caring. Highly recomended.
the office is really nice and pretty. the nurses/assistants were all very nice as was Dr. Cohen. it was a little awkward to have the nurses walk through my "room" to get to the doctor's office, but otherwise it was a good experience. i did feel a tiny bit rushed by the doctor, but he def listened to my problems and helped set up a plan.
Sincere, empathic, curious, and soon to be fully digital. A forward thinking HCP with a great staff. I consider myself fortunate. —George Boutilier, New York City
Really appreciated the technology this office uses for checking in, much better than filling out forms!!! I went in for an annual physical, and although I felt a tiny bit rushed Dr. Cohen answered all of my questions and gave the most seamless physical I've ever experienced. He's definitely my new PCP.
Very nice people and office.
He didnt seem very concerned about my issues. He seemed like the type of doctor who just writes prescriptions.
Even if I do someday escape this god-forsaken city, I will still make a yearly commute back to NYC for my annual physical with Dr. Cohen. He's that good.
I've been in the market for a new PCP for a while, and I just found him. Dr. Cohen was thoughtful, patient, open-minded (when talking about subjects that would've made other docs uncomfortable), and an all-around great dude. He wasn't satisfied sending me away with a scrip; he wanted to help me find and treat the underlying issues. I'll be going back.
Very nice and informative physician, I will use him again for any primary care needs.
I am extremely nervous in doctor's offices. Dr Cohen made me feel completely comfortable on my first visit and I believe I have finally found a permanent doctor in NYC! I also loved the new technology he uses to check in patients. Made the process more enjoyable and comfortable for me.
Great doc. Very straight forward and friendly.
He was quick, professional and charming. His technique in drawing blood was the most painless I've ever experienced.
The doctor was excellent and explained very well. I waited 40 minutes though before I finally saw him but the staff was pleasant and apologised about the wait
Think I've found my new GP with Dr Cohen.
Friendly, honest, straighforward -- all good.
Very nice guy
Very nice and compassionate dr.
Dr. Cohen is a rare find - great person and doctor!
I've finally managed to find a GP in NYC I like. He's competent, polite, to the point (in a good way) but also takes the time to show concern for his patients. Great!
Very professional and down to earth.Great man to talk to and very genuine.
It was great. Dr. Cohen's diagnoses was spot on.
Dr. Cohen was extremely pleasant, professional and efficient. I needed a pre-surgery physical and selected him based on office location, but after meeting him, I think he'll become my new PCP — I felt very comfortable immediately. Another excellent find via ZocDoc!
Likable and professional. Dr Cohen is efficient, courteous, communicates clearly and makes a point of ensuring that patients have all the information they need.
Super nice guy. Prompt and respectful. I received an injury while biking, and he was able to diagnose with nothing more than a brief physical inspection. Would see again.
Dr. Cohen was courteous, to the point and very professional as always. Always happy to answer questions, no matter how trivial they may be.
He was quick but was clearly paying full attention and didn't miss any details. Great first visit, I'll be back.
Dr. Cohen is a good listener and asked the right questions. More importantly, the consultation was not rushed
I liked my first visit. Dr Cohen was very accessable in the office. In fact a prior customer walked in and the doctor recognized him and fit him in before my appointment. Dr Cohen and his office has more of a boutique feel than your average healthcare provider.
Dr. Cohen is the man, end of story.
Was very nice and helpful!
He knows what he's doing, he's incredibly efficient (as is his staff), and I've never sat in the waiting room for more than 10 minutes. Great guy. I wish all doctors were like this.
Excellent. Dr Cohen is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient, and his explanations were clear and informative.
My visit, by a large margin, was the best I've ever had. He's succinct, accurate, compassionate, and personable. Honestly, I could go on forever, so I'll just say this: if you have psych issues, go see Dr. Cohen.
Dr. Cohen was easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable asking questions. I felt that I was given his full attention during the appointment and I would definitely recommend him to friends.
Good manner, professional, thorough. Would recommend this doc.
He was great
I accidentally scheduled my appointment a week later than I thought. Despite this, Dr. Cohen and his staff were more than willing to see me at my incorrect time. He was extremely thorough in his diagnosis and I certainly appreciated his patience and professionalism.
Really friendly, informative, looking forward to my next visit.
Always feel very comfortable with my appointments. I have never had any major illnesses, but he is always very thorough and is very descriptive and clear with all the information he provides.
First visit to doctor - very friendly and seemed to truly care about finding an answer to the issue.
Awesome Doctor! Recommended him to many colleagues.
Quick, friendly . I would recommend to my friends.
My visit with Dr. Cohen was great; he was very helpful, kind, and expressed genuine concern with my health. Great guy.
Dr. Cohen was thorough and efficient. I came for what I thought was an early onset of the flu but he took the time to get the details of my family history and expressed genuine concern in my long term wellness. Stand up guy.
Dr Cohen was extremely helpful and patient. He carefully listened to all of my symptoms and explained precisely what was happening. I did not feel rushed; as a first-time patient, I felt like he genuinely cared about my health and I would be pleased to come back to his office.
Bonus: the office building is opposite Balthazar, where one can treat oneself for having gone to the doctor.
My visit to see Dr. Cohen was great. As a busy working professional it is very hard to find time to see a doctor who can fit your schedule. That's exactly what Dr. Cohen offered. He in no way rushed my appointment, he was thorough and quick, and was easy to talk to. As a first time patient, I thought I would have to jump through hoops to get what I needed, but he listened to me, trusted me, and helped me with my problems without having to go through many unecessary routines. I would definitely recommend Dr. Cohen. Furthermore, his calendar seems to have a lot of available appointments, even around the holidays.
Thorough, professional and easy to talk to. I feel confident that I have finally found a doctor in NYC.
My first visit but will definitely return. Very clean office, no wait time, efficient appointment, all around solid.
The doctor is very personable! Comfortable office. But the nurse has no personality.
He was wonderful! He was a great listener, answered all of my questions, and made me feel completely at ease. I'm originally from a small mid-western town, and have always been used to having a friendly, attentive, knowledgeable, personable GP. It's been hard to find a similar GP in the city (been to four doctors so far without success!), but I'll definitely be going to Dr. Cohen from now on. Really awesome doctor.
Very easy to talk to, especially helpful because I had a lot of things to discuss (symptons, history, etc.). I was even able to get blood drawn in the office without having to go to a lab!
Dr. Cohen is pretty amazing. He's warm, friendly and casual - it's easy to talk to him, and he never comes across as judgmental. It's also super great that you can get your blood work done in his office - no need to go to a diagnostic center! (Also, side note - his office is close to a lot of awesome shops; it's nice to be able to treat yourself a little after a doctor appointment!)
Love him! Super nice and actually cares about the well being of his patients, not just trying to prescribe unnecessary meds. He was very likable and professional.
He was very helpful and timely..I would recommend anyone to him. His office was nice, calm and plesant.
He had me diagnosed in 5 minutes and prescribed me the right medication and I feel 100 percent better. I'm going to use him as my primary care doctor after my experience with him with my illness.
He was quick but thorough. I loved that he gave me direct actions to take as opposed to general projections about what my illness could be.
Stylish office, professional staff. Doctor is a good listener and instills confidence. Painless, helpful visit.
Aside from the fact that I wasn't feeling well (the whole reason I was there), I had a fabulous visit. Dr. Cohen was warm and reassuring, his staff were great, and having arrived to fill out paperwork a bit early, I was being taken into the examining room right at my appointment time.
Great, fast experience - thanks for your help Barry and your staff!
He was exceptinonally helpful and there was virtually no wait.
He was very personable and wasn't incredibly rushed like every other Manhattan doctor. And great offices!
Great doctor, visit was fast and efficient. Will definitely go back. Thanks ZocDoc!
Fantastic doctor, was very thorough, was nice enough to squeeze me in despite ZocDoc technical errors (gave me an appt. for when the doctor was going to be away).
Overall all, quite positive. I'm well aware of the need for Doctors to "move patients along"...so to speak. Having said that, I did not feel rushed...good exam...asked all the right questions. My only criticism was the receptionist should have been more prepared to receive a "new" patient in terms of knowing I was new (she did not) and a bit more pleasant initially. However, overall staff was good.
Great doc! First time with him. Knowledgeable, caring and quick. Paperwork and initial wait took a little while though.
What a great experience. Everyone I interacted with in the office was friendly, efficient and professional. Wait time was less than 5 minutes. A+
Dr. Cohen was very fast and helpful. I will definitely see him again.
I scheduled my annual physical with Dr. Cohen in January. His office is clean, his receptionist is super friendly, and he was very helpful and listened to all my concerns.
It was really very excellent. He listened to me and was extremely supportive/caring. I've was struggling and he made me feel relaxed enough to get though the visit. I was grateful for his listening skills and his ability to keep me on track. Thanks
Really friendly and caring doctor.
He seemed very knowledgeable, direct, and I could really trust him.
Dr. Cohen has a super-cool office, really nice nurses and was easy-going and gentle. He was fast and efficient, but took time to answer all my questions. I'm glad I found him.
staff untrained. no one apologized for 30 minute late appointment and doc came back from lunch so wasnt even a longer than expected patient visit that caused delay. very impersonal doc and staff
Made me feel really comfortable during the entire process, and I felt totally at ease. I highly recommend him.
The experience at Dr. Cohen's office was great. I will definitely be going back!
Solariums great. Very fast
Dr. Cohen is awesome. Office is quite stylish.
