Verified Patient Reviews
I've seen Dr. Cohen way too many times in the last few months, and he's been amazing every time. He doesn't feel rushed, he's easily identified what was wrong when other doctors couldn't, and he's a great listener (rather than thinking he has all the answers without hearing medical history).
Dr. Cohen was a dream! Smart, competent, patient, knowledgeable. Everything you would hope for in a doctor. I am so relieved.
Very polite & professional! Makes you feel at ease.

The ENTA is a total scam, avoid! I visited Dr. Cohen for a Lipoma I had in my face, the doctor visited me for 3 minutes and asked for an MRI. In the last 12 seconds of my visit, he said now that you're here let me check your nose, I said it's my very well known allergy that I get every year and it's fine and he said let me see, so he spent 12 seconds and checked my nose. 1) I had to call them 8 times to send my MRI request for insurance approval. It took them 5 days and every time they said we've already sent it but when I called my insurance, they didn't have anything. They told me all 8 times that they will call me back but they never did. 2) When I received the MRI result, I saw Dr. Cohen again, he didn't even bother to see my MRI and just read the report and charged me another visit. 3) After a month I received a 3 digit bill for a Nasal Endoscopy which was the procedure that was not required. When I called the customer service, they said you visited Dr. Cohen because of "Nasal Congestion" which is not true. They said a manager will call you, after 10 days, they did not call me and sent me the bill again. I called them again and still waiting for the manager to call.
Dr. Eric Cohen is amazing! He explains the details of the diagnosis and other steps that needs to be done to make sure all the tests are covered. Very professional and has good personality and sense of humor. I highly recommend him.

He is an excellent doctor. He provides just the right amount of information and genuinely cares about how you feel. He also takes pride in his work and outcomes.
I found Dr. Cohen on Zocdoc and was able to make a next day appt. His practice is a few blocks from my apt and I had come down with an illness and didn't feel up to going to my PHP or ENT in Midtown from the UWS. He was on-time, personable and recommended an appropriate course of treatment. I would highly recommend him as an ENT and I'll definitely go back to him in the future if needed.
Dr. Cohen was great! The whole staff at ENT and Allegry Associates were very kind and helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an ENT doctor.
Dr. Cohen performed a septoplasty surgery to address a long-term breathing issue. The procedure went perfectly and the results couldn't be better. I'm so grateful to him! He was also very available during recovery---I was able to text him with any issues and always received a prompt response, even on the weekend.
So this is what it's like to be able to breath through your nose? Dr. Cohen is an amazing doctor who was able to answear all my questions and make me feel completely at ease (before/during/after) my diveated septum surgery. He was available for post op phone calls and just like he said within a week I was able to breath (for the first time) out of my nose. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen for all your ENT needs and if you ever need surgery I would make sure you find time to fit on his busy schedule because he truly is a phenomenal surgeon .

Very professional and pleasant. Easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen.
He was attentive, warm and had the best bedside manner. He immediately diagnosed me and laid out the caveats of the diagnoses. Right away he referred me to another specialist and kept me in the office until he was sure that a next day appointment had been made. I will certainly return to him and recommend others to see him.
I would highly recommend Dr. Cohen for his bedside manner, and will continue to be his patient.
My overall experience was great!
Great experience. Super nice Doctor

Excellent. Did exactly what I was looking for.
The first ENT to actually swab my nose to do a culture to see what's causing my chronic sinus infections! Wow what a concept. He is very friendly and knowledgeable. Answers all of my questions. He has a lot of patients but its because he's good!!!
The appointment was pointless and he did not tell me anything I could not find online or had already known. I would recommend going to a doctor that actually specializes in what you are having an issue with.
Dr. Cohen was very helpful and I am already fstarting to feel better just 6 hours later.
Knowledgeable and very helpful
Very nice and personable. Clearly experienced.
So professional and nice. Highly recommended.
As has been my experience over the past month or so, my visits to Dr. Cohen have been very pleasant experiences. This is so primarily because the sinus surgery which he performed on me a month ago has made a big difference in my life. Everything from an improvement in my sense of smell; to an abatement of tinnitus; and being able to breath out of both nostrils has been truly great. I REALLY like Dr. Cohen. He is a very nice person.
I went to Dr. Cohen after experiencing a persistent sore throat for months. He found nothing wrong. A year later, the problem erupted into a huge problem — I could eat no solids. I ended up having to go through a battery of medical tests at a hospital and get an endoscopy and my problems were later resolved. I wish he'd taken more time to work with me when I first noticed my symptoms — it could have saved me a lot of pain down the road.
An absolute delight.
Dr. Cohen was excellent and caring!

Dr Cohen is an expert in his field, and is extremely attentive to your concerns while he addresses all of your questions. He demonstrated an approachable yet professional bedside manner that made the experience pleasant and comfortable.
He basically just wants to sell his expensive surgery to you. No patience to listen to your concern AT ALL! I booked a sleep study from him, and he didn't even care to take a look at the results. WORST DOCTOR EVER. unbelievable!!
I was surprised just how friendly and personable he was. He presented me several options to address my snoring. While I haven't started any treatment yet, this is a great start.
