The entire staff appears to enjoy their work, their workplace, and their patients/customers. I appreciate the teacher in Dr. Cohen. He is always ready to answer questions, to explain and demonstrate what is going on with my eyes, what the progressionis likely to be, and what to do about it, including various options if appropriate.

Although this was my first visit, I see no reason why Dr. Cohen will not be my primary eye doctor/optometrist. Everything went smooth and he took the time to explain all the results of the tests and exams.

Dr. Cohen is clearly a 5 star professional! I would give him 10 stars if that were possible! He combines excellent interpersonal skills, medical knowledge and skill with efficiency. As a physician, I greatly appreciated seeing pictures ofmy retina and hearing an explanation of his findings on exam, including reassurance. Everything made sense and I was delighted by the visit. He communicated with the staff who all seemed happy to be there and cooperative and helpful in every way. I look forward to getting my new glasses and sunglasses. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen and will tell my friends, family and colleagues.

Easy, peasy. Dr. is wonderful. They did push me to do an extra test over what my insurance covered... in retrospect I probably didn't need it but I did it anyway.

Dr Cohen was fantastic! Very thorough and explained all my eye problems in depth. Many other doctors have just given me the technical terms with no explanations and Dr Cohen was able to explain it all to me. Did not tryto talk me into anything that wasn't necessary and even gave me free trials of contacts to decide which brand I like best before purchasing!

He always remembers me and makes it a point to ask about things going on in my life, not just getting down to the business of my eyes- even though I only go once a year at most. Its always anenjoyable experience with a family-like environment. Dr. Cohen has an immense knowledge in both current and upcoming optometry practices and technologies.
