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 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.

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!

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 My only complaint is the check in process uses a very outdated electronic device to input your history.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.
