Qualifications and Experience
I specialize in sports medicine, shoulder, knee, elbow disorders, and arthroscopic surgery. I also treat a variety of general orthopaedic problems. I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. That's why I explain every step of the diagnostic process. Next, I want my patients to understand their condition: How it developed and how various treatment approaches can improve or repair the problem. When we consider treatment alternatives, I present a realistic outlook on the results we can achieve. I'll also be frank about any risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option is available, I'll explain that avenue in depth. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you, and to help you achieve your best possible musculoskeletal health.

Very professional. He explains treatments, offers recommendations and expressed interest in a positive outcome. Everything you hope to experience from a doctor.
The office had no record of my appointment even though Zocdoc sent me a confirmation saying they had confirmed with the Office. Thankfully, they fit me in.
My place of employment requested the doctor to complete a form that chronicled my injury as part of my medical leave. The form needed the dates the doctor saw me and how long I would be non-weight bearing. I am a bedside nurse so non-weight bearing on a fractured ankle prevents me from working. The doctor refused to use the form and wanted to charge me a fee to fill out a brand new form; although this form was the one chronicling my injury and the one provided by my employer. He offered no other alternative and shrugged off losing a patient. The fee may not have been an issue if I wasn't injured and not receiving any pay- the injury occurred 2 weeks before my disability insurance kicked in. Luckily due to medical leave and the affordable care act I started being covered by my insurance 2 weeks after the accident. This doctor takes my insurance. This man also operated on my grandmother, twice at age 99 and 101. I thought he might have treated our family with a little more respect. This all occurred in the presence of my elderly mother who had kindly hand delivered the paperwork to his office. I spoke to my employer who said, my medical leave benefits cannot be processed unless the doctor fills out these forms. This would mean that I may not continue to be covered by insurance. I had an appointment to see him again in a week. I requested my medical records and will be seeing someone else. Go anywhere else, doctors are meant to be compassionate not money hungry. Ive been a nurse for 25 years and have luckily rarely encountered this sort of unkindness in a physician.
I spent 20 minutes filling papers and answering questions and I received a 2-minutes feedback.
A large packet of paperwork with a lot of repetitive information on multiple forms was required to be completed prior to being seen by the Doctor. I am used to completing several forms at Doctor offices, but this is the most I have ever experienced, so get there early to start your writing assignment! Examination was quick, efficient but a bit clinical in nature. This is a high volume office, which efficiently moves patients through the process quickly, though I think it would be easy to feel like you were part of a production line.
Very impressed. I am a triathlete, and the fact that he is too meant he was asking all the right questions, and was understanding of my history.
Second time seeing Dr. Cohen. Would definitely use him again if needed.
Very competent and professional.
