I am really upset at the treatment I received at his office. This is not my first time there and I was shocked at how unprofessional he and his staff behaved. I arrived for my scheduled apt that was confirmed bythem and the receptionist was looking at me like I didn't belong there - she then said she didn't see my apt and I told her it was made with zocdoc. a few minutes later the dr came into the reception area and very rudely and in front of everyone there yelled that he I didn't have an apt because he is the one that confirms the appts and he didn't confirm an apt for me. I took out my phone to show him the confirmation email I received and he just walked back into his office and called the next patient in. The receptionist refused to look at my phone and just kept speaking to the other patient in Russian like I wasn't standing there - I interrupted and told her she needs to show him the confirmation because it was confirmed and she refused to take the phone still and insisted she will take a picture of it - she acted like I was a leper. I told her she was unprofessional and the dr was unprofessional and rue and she told me well he's tired to which I replied I am tired too I just came form work. Needless to say I am looking for a new dr and will never go back to that office again. I felt discriminated against and disrespected.

Receptionists need to make sure that when confirming appointments it's at the correct office!!! A mistake causes problems and hours before seen by the doctor. Hopefully next time this won't happen! Inside with Dr. Igor, it would be nice to haveprivacy and not have someone stand there listening to your private matters. Privacy would he nice.

He was very uninterested in why I was in there. I had to wait over 2.5 hours to see him! My appt was at 2pm and they called me into his office at 4:45. The receptionist told me I had towait longer than everyone else because I made an appointment through ZocDoc. And after all that waiting, he was rolling his eyes and texting the entire 10 minutes I was with his at his desk. He was more interested in writing me prescriptions then finding out what was wrong with me. Never again. I went to find another Neuro and very happy!

Frontdesk was nice but super long wait time for a doctor who didnt even shake my hand. He had an assistant in the room during my whole visit and the entire time she was on her phone very unprofessional. I toldhim the nurse practioner i normally see told me I had cronic migrane and cohen laughed and said let him decide not some N.P... very rude. Looking for a new neurologist.

The wait time for the office was ridiculous. I showed up to my appointment early and waited over an hour to be seen by the doctor. The doctor is very knowledgeable but is not the most warm individual. Unfortunately, I ambeyond annoyed at the fact that they DO NOT TAKE MY INSURANCE. Online said the office took my insurance, the ladies at the desk took a copy of the card and said they took the insurance, and then a day later the office called and said "sorry we can't see you anymore we don't take your insurance". Very unhappy with this! Completely unacceptable.

Dr. Cohen seems like a Great Dr. I look forward to seeing him again soon & receiving further medical treatment, as necessary. The wait time was not very long at all & I arrived several hours early, The office staff wasfriendly & professional & of course so was Dr. Cohen. I will be able to leave a more detailed review when I see him again but as of now I believe I found a new Dr., I look forward to building a great relationship with.

My first visit not only was the staff not welcoming and not friendly at all but every patient that was waiting complained about the same thing which was if you have an appt for a certain time why do you waitup to two hours to see this doctor who had no personality at all. Is not welcoming to new patients and the receptionist told us we had to wait because be has to finish paperwork. Why would this Dr. Notcdo his paperwork after he bas seen his patients!

I made the appointment for my father, after searching for a long time to find a neurologist I found this page and right away booked the appointment. My father was very happy with the way he was treated and the customerservice, I can say I finally found a great doctor to treat his wrist pain. Thank you so much for your time, and we will recommend this doctor to any of my families or friends.
