Verified Patient Reviews
very reassuring I felt at ease no matter what I asked it seemed that it was not a problem so you felt pretty good once you left the office
Dr. Cohen was very friendly, helpful and informative and explained possible solutions very clearly.
He's an amazing and very skillful surgeon. He has performed one surgery on me a few yrs ago and thanks to his great abilities I don't even have a scar. He's very knowledgeable and has great bedside manners.
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!
Amazing doctor, amazing work ethics would definitely recommend him.
I have been seeing Dr. Cohen for a few years now, and I am so happy with him. He is knowledgable and has a great bedside manner. He is always professional, kind, and seems to be genuinely dedicated to improving my health. My particular health condition has improved considerably.
Very satisfied. Dr. Cohen was informative. He has an engaging manner.
It was great! Dr. Cohen took his time to explain everything to me about my hernia and answers all my questions in a very pleasant manner.
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!
Fantastic doctor and great staff Already had my procedure
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.
Attentive but to the point, gave my problem a thorough look and left me with a good idea of how to check on the healing process.
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.
Very professional. Very good experience.
Excellent, very informative, great bed side manner. Martha, the receptionist was awesome!
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.
Very personable and suggests non-surgical treatments to try before surgery. Great doctor! Highly recommend!
I had an open surgical procedure for my inguinal hernia and could not be more happy with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen. He has a great bedside manner, listens to you and answers all your questions and concerns. Thank you Dr. Cohen.
He made me very comfortable and explained the entire procedure to me.
As Dr. Cohen was in my initial surgical consult appointment he was in the post op meeting. Warm, thorough, informative and genuinely interested in me as a patient. With any luck I won't be seeing him again but my experience was great. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Cohen was great. He clearly explained my options, took time to answer my questions thoroughly, and he was very friendly and down to earth.
One of the better experiences I've had with medicine.
Provider was very nice and calm. Office staff was friendly. So far, one my favorite doc in the city.
Honest, to the point, and takes whatever time you need to ask questions and expain
Throughly welcoming, knowledgeable and professional. Will have my surgery in a week. Would recommend Dr. Cohen unconditionally.
Excellent & thorough. He does not push the "money-making" procedures that 99% of the other Doctors you may encounter do! He does what is best for you and you are not just another dollar bill to him - highly recommended!
Both very helpful and thoughtful. Unlike a lot of doctors, he actually listened and incorporated my thoughts, input, and feelings. Thorough and sharp — inspired confidence. He gave helpful, practicable advice that was immediately useful, and his communication was exceptional.
Wonderful doctor. Very knowledgeable. Great bedside manner and pleasant personality.
Dr. Cohen is caring and takes the time to explain things clearly. He has a bedside manner that others can learn from, and I appreciate the amount of time he spent with me. I highly recommend 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.
I LOVE THIS DOCTOR!!!!!!! I couldn't have made a better choice. His staff is super courteous, caring and friendly.
Dr. Cohen and his staff are great. Highly recommended.
He was very knowledgeable about the issue and he's not one of those surgeons that always recommend surgery. He was very conservative and put my health and well being as priority.
Dr. Cohen is a fantastic doctor and an excellent surgeon. He performed a laparoscopic hernia repair on me in the fall, and I am extremely happy with the results. Highly recommended!
I was a little nervous after having been told the day before that an hernia had to be repaired, and when I saw Dr. Cohen, he described what had to be done, answered all our questions, was very accommodating, and had a such a friendly manner. Martha, his assistant quickly made all the arrangements, and we were on our way, feeling confidant that we had seen the best doctor for my operation.
Dr. Cohen is a great doctor. He listens to your concerns, really thinks about how he wants to treat you, and doesn't perform unnecessary procedures. He cares about his patients and I'd recommend him to anyone.
Lovely sympathetic doctor. Professional approach. Very caring.
I appreciate his professional manner and his kindness to me. Dr. Cohen is a great doctor.
Professional, attentive, answered all concerns and questions, and was very understanding
Doctor Cohen does a awesome job. He makes you feel comfortable and knowledgeable with what is going on. Very professional and friendly.
Dr. Cohen was very knowledgeable and seem to know exactly what was happening to me. After finishing the paperwork, I only had to wait a few minutes. He took the time to explain exactly what was happening and what were my options. I am now scheduling my next visit to perform the surgery.
Dr. Cohen is wonderful. He has a great bedside manner - very warm and friendly. I felt very well cared for. He was very thorough and careful about putting the right treatment plan in place for me, and he took the time necessary to explore different options and explain them all to me in order to come to the best decision. I would recommend him to my nearest and dearest family and friends.
Dr. Cohen saved me from unnecessary surgery. The ER doctor and later another hernia surgeon had assured me I had a hernia and needed surgery. I saw Dr. Cohen expecting to schedule an operation, but he was not convinced. He advised waiting until an adjacent injury healed. I did, and he was right -- no hernia after all. Another surgeon would have cut into me already. They say the best surgeon knows when not to operate. Dr. Cohen is that best surgeon.
Best of the Best, nothing but compliments, experienced and top notch, thanks, dR
Dr Cohen was professional, friendly and very comforting from the first moment. I highly recommend him.
Dr Cohen is experienced, caring and patient doctor. I was lucky to have been referred to him. My colonoscopy was seamless. I am being treated for colorectal issues and have to say he has been a gem.
His bedside manners are immaculate. He is one of the nicest and most caring doctors I have been too---very personable. I am very complicated and he spent a great deal of time going through everything with me and answered all my questions, which was great.
Great! Im a senior medical student, so I know.
Dr. Cohen was very professional. He answered all my questions appropriately and told me what to expect in the future. I didn't feel rushed at all, he took the time to sit down and get to know me. I would definitely recommend him.
Doctor Frank S. Cohen is the best surgeon and best person ever.I would highly recommend Frank S. Cohen, MD and his office for the people who need his help.
Dr. Frank S. Cohen is an excellent Surgeon he was very patient and understanding and very professional with his job. He knew how to handle my situation and explained every step throughout the whole way. I truly recommend this doctor. His team and practice place is also excellent. The receptionist was very professional, hospitable, informative, and very comforting making any possible arrangements to make my visit happen.
As always its a pleasant experience. Highly recommend.
What a waste of time. Rude receptionists. Called in the prescription to the wrong pharmacy. Never called me back with lab results. Had the nerve to try and charge for cancelling my follow-up appointment after I realized I didn't want to be treated there. Just an awful experience. The doctor was nice though.
Dr. Cohen is an excellent doctor who takes the time to listen to you, thoroughly discusses possible treatment options and makes sure that you completely understand what he plans on doing and why. He is warm, kind and thoughtful with an excellent bedside manner. I would highly recommend Dr. Cohen and would go so far as to say that he has been the best general surgeon I have seen so far for my condition.
Dr Cohen was very nice and had great bedside manner. He answered all of my questions and seemed caring to my concerns.
He is really good, friendly and treated my abscess very well. I highly recommend him.
I came across Dr. Cohen through an online search. I chose him because he is affiliated with a good hospital and specializes in hernias. I was seen within 15 minutes of my appointment. Dr. Cohen was friendly, down to earth, listened thoroughly to my symptoms and explained all options. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I'm 31 but my mom is a nurse (and no matter how old I am I'll always be a child to her) so she wanted to talk to the dr. She e-mailed him after my visit (after I gave my written consent of course) and he e-mailed her back almost immediately and gave her a very thorough response. I would recommend Dr. Cohen to anyone!!
Great guy, made me feel like I was in good hands and everything was going to be okay.
He is very knowledgeable and gentle. He also really listens, and you don't feel rushed!
Dr Cohen was patient and courteous in explaining the procedure I would be going through and what would be involved. His excellent bedside manner definitely helped calm this anxious patient. His staff was friendly and professional and the wait time to see him was minimal for my appointments. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for the services of a general surgeon in New York City.
My visit was all you could ask for. I found the Dr. Cohen to be intelligent, compassionate and plain spoken. I highly recommend him.
Great Doctor. Very professional and an expert in his field. Highly recommended.
Understood my concerns & was helpful with questions I had.
Dr. Cohen was very thorough, pleasant and patient in his examination and explanations. Made the procedure as quick and painless as possible.
Dr. Cohen was attentive, warm and knowledgeable. He makes you feel very comfortable. Highly recommend.
