Dr. Cohen explained the alternatives among which I need to choose after examining me and confirming the presence of a groin hernia. His description of those alternatives was quite clear and his attitude was compassionate.

Dr. Cohen saw me immediately and I was even a few minutes late. He was incredibly kind and I even got light headed after the anesthesia and he was very patient with me and helped calm me down. I was in and out of there very quickly and he made me feel safe and comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a surgeon. He also made sure to explain to me exactly what was happening during the procedure. Great doctor!

Dr Cohen took time to patiently explain my condition and my options. In my case these options included "watch n wait"; I very much appreciated him including this option rather than assuming the default surgical procedure. Dr Cohen really rocks -- highly recommended!

Dr. Cohen was so pleasant and easy to talk to. He didn't push for an unnecessary treatment, but actually offered the less invasive option. I can't say I'm looking forward to a colonoscopy, but will be happy to have one when its time with Dr. Cohen.

He is a fantastic doctor! I had a hernia surgery with him. He answered all my questions before and after the surgery. No waiting time. Staff was great. I needed to learn the cost of the surgery before I had it. They helped me about it. I absolutely recommended him.

Went in for a consultation on a relatively minor issue; experienced a 30min wait due to an emergency with the patient prior to me. Dr. Cohen was otherwise very helpful, assessed the situation very quickly despite me being a new patient and provided very practical advice.

I saw Dr. Cohen for a hernia consultaion. He assured me it was an easy procedure and that after surgery I can play tennis and go to work the next day. A couple of weeks later, I had the surgery. Went in at 9am and left at 3pm, after prep, surgery, and recovery. Dr. Cohen's bedside manner was great. It's a week after surgery and I feel wonderful, all thanks to Dr. Cohen.

Biggest regret of my life. Dr. Cohen led me to believe I would be "back in action" only weeks after the procedure, and now 3 months later, I'm still unable to perform activities that I was able to perform prior to the surgery, e.g. sit-ups. His bedside manner was unprofessional and insensitive, telling me things like "your insides were beat up" and "I had to get in there with my hands" - something no patient of a laparoscopic procedure should ever, ever hear. Rather than an apology or explanation for the unsightly abdominal seroma I now have as a result of the roughly handled procedure (by his own admission), he told me it was my body's fault, and spending less than 5 minutes with me in my follow-up, told me to simply give it another 6 months. I would have appreciated a deeper explanation as to what was happening with my body and how to mitigate the negative after-effects of the surgery. The purpose of my hernia repair procedure was to be able to live my active lifestyle, but the exact opposite effect was achieved. I would not recommend this surgeon.
