Verified Patient Reviews
Excellent doctor. Thorough and informational, helpful and knowledgeable. I was amazed how technology has advanced so since my last eye appointment many years ago! Office very comfortable!
Thorough, efficient and pleasant. Always a good experience.
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 progression is likely to be, and what to do about it, including various options if appropriate.
Total office visit was professional and patient care focused...
Dr. Cohen is super friendly and helpful. The other staff are great as well. Awesome selection of glasses!
Very attentive, great service, very knowledgeable.
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.
Friendly, thorough, competent service as usual. State of the art diagnostic equipment. Understands my insurance plans.
Professional and efficient! Highly recommend Dr Cohen and his staff. You
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 of my 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.

Optique at West Paces is fantastic! Dr Cohen did my eye exam with no dilation! I was in and out in 45 minutes and was able to enjoy the rest of my day. The whole staff is friendly and very knowledgable.
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.
Gavin's knowledge and dedication to eye care is incredible. He uses the latest technology and techniques to care for your eyes as he would his own family. I hope I can see Gavin my entire life.

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 try to 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!
Very personable, professional and thorough; I have never had a doctor help and give recommendations on frames; a very pleasant experience

Very impressed with the care he provided.
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.

Dr. Cohen was by far, the best Optometrist I have seen. Not only was his bedside manner excellent, he is very knowledgeable and thorough. He reviewed all the tests done in the office with me and explained what everything meant. The office staff was also really wonderful and helpful. There was a nice selection of frames to chose from as well. I'll definitely be back for my annual eye exam and refer my friends and family to Dr. Cohen. Thank you for a great experience!
