Verified Patient Reviews
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 have privacy and not have someone stand there listening to your private matters. Privacy would he nice.
Doctor took his time and was thorough.
He was very nice .
The doctor actually listened to my symptoms, asked clarifying questions and ran tests to confirm and diagnose my pain. He make a plan for pain management and I am already feeling better.
My visit with Dr. Cohen was very special. I appreciated the way he took the time to explain the treatment that I would need for my condition. I look forward to seeing him again!! I would refer others to him if the opportunity arises.
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 to wait 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!
It was my first time seeing Dr. Cohen and it seems like he's a good doctor. Time will tell but so far its been a good experience and his office is very clean which is a plus in my book
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 told him 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 am beyond 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 wasn't really friendly but he definitely knows what he is doing. He set me up for special tests and examined me thoroughly.
Overalll the experience with the doctor was great. He took note of all my concerns and was very attentive. However, the wait period was very lengthy.
excellent doctor very knowlegeable. I truly believe he is going to help me
The best doctor to pacient experience!
It was pretty good in general. I loved that he really took the time to explain the different meds and which ones are best for me personally. I've never had that and am happy with what WE decided on. Sometimes I felt he was a little abrupt but that's it. I will definitely keep going.
It was very good. I will definitely return to see him again.
worth the wait
He was very informative, polite and he answered all our questions, and concerns.
Not compassionate or helpful
I would never recommend this doctor nor office to anyone. The front is rude, the wait was very long. I ask his receptionist does he normally run on time she said no so beats the purpose of scheduling an appointment.
He is very smart.
He is a very good doctor. I am confident with his opinion. The office is busy. The staff is friendly, but be prepared to wait a very long time to be seen.
Pleasant experience, as usual. Highly recommend this doctor!
Very knowledgeable and helpful. He makes you feel at ease as a patient and helps you figure out the best options for you.
I think he is a very professional, knowledgeable doctor who cares about his patients.
It was good. I felt he listened and understood my problem.
He was very patient and took the time to answer any questions I had.
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 was friendly & 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.
Dr.Igor Cohen Very professional yet friendly and confident. Explained everything in an understandable way, care treatment . Delightful experience highly recommend.
Dr. Cohen is a terrific physician! He really knows his stuff and is very friendly. Hardly any wait time and just always a pleasant visit.
Very nice office. Doctor spend time with me, explained my problem in simple terms, and scheduled necessary testing and follow-up appointment right away. Highly recommend this doctor - deep knowledge and kind personality.
Too outdated for me! They don't own a credit card machine for payments!
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 wait up 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 customer service, 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.
