Actually met with another doctor that was there. I did make an appointment to meet with Dr. Cohen. I was automatically seen by doctor Brittany giammalvo which turned out to be great nevertheless. She was very pleasant, informative and I’m excitedto see progress in the future. I highly recommend her. I do think the office should’ve informed me that I wouldn’t be meeting with dr Cohen.

Dr Cohen was cold and dismissive. His PA did The examination, then proceeded to have a conversation with Dr. Cohen in front of me, without talking to me! Completely unprofessional. Nothing was explained regarding diagnoses or medications. I would NEVER recommend this medical team.

I waited in the office for over an hour for a 5 minute appointment. The waiting room also consisted of multiple people having their pets with them. Which is unsanitary for a doctor’s office.

They treated me rushed for an abnormal mole, the PA seemed incompetent and uncomfortable making decisions. They were supposed to remove two moles I saw today she only removed one, I called to speak with someone today and no one calledme back. Not particularly through or reassuring. The doctor looked briefly and told her to biopsy both moles, but she only did one. I am a ER RN and not a typical health illiterate and feel unsettled by the whole experience.

The ladies at the front desk were nice and professional. I waited for a while, even with an appointment, but it was my first time so I believe with paper, etc may have increase my wait time. Hoping my next visitI won't wait too long. The doctor was nice, attentive and she really paid attention to my concerns. Will be coming back here.

Very clean place and things moved pretty fast. Only complaint I have was when I called the receptionist told me that there was nothing available until the following WEEK but online there were appointments every fifteen minutes available! Ofcourse I booked online and went despite what the bothered receptionist told me. I'd still go back and reccomend. The P.A. was wonderful!

I selected David Cohen after seeing his reviews, but honestly I wouldn't return to Dr. Cohen. I dealt with his PA and Dr. Cohen only entered the room for the final 3mins. It amazes me how Doctors can charge ridiculous consultationfees but never take the time to consult with a patient. Nothing against the PA, I am old-school where if I am seeing a specialist, I would prefer to consult with the doctor rather than a novice PA.

There was no wait time at all, the office staff was friendly and communicated very well. The woman who treated me was an excellent professional in every way. She listened well, clearly explained all the relevant information, and conducted apain-free mole removal. The whole thing all happened in under 15 minutes, but didn't feel rushed at all, and she answered all my questions. I highly recommend this office.

I wish not to see Dr David Cohen ever again! My boyfriend goes there and his whole family goes there but they see an other Dr I think it's Dr Von or Don I don't recall the name usually he isthere on Friday he just wasn't there when I went Dr David did even sit and fully examine my skin like I thought a Dr would. The assistant was bad too she was just righting away just asking me questions about my skin not even looking at my skin like I went to the doctor clearly to examine my skin cause I have bad acne on my face I hope the medications they give me works but next think I go back I hope to see the other doctor.

I personally dont see Dr. Cohen much anymore these days when I go to his office, but everyone in his office, at least that I have personally dealt with, really are great. And he did come in once when a secondopinion was needed, so if you ask for him, and he is in the office at that time, you most likely will get him, but as stated, I am happy with the care I receive from everyone there. I do recommend them to everyone and anyone who needs a derm.
