Patient reviews for Dr. Joshua Cohen
I love him. Very knowledgeable and genuinely caring.
Very uncomfortable...He should SPECIFY UPFRONT why he is asking invasive questions about "why" you were raped, etc, and launching into an interrogation about things police already asked you. It was hard dealing with that the day after I was raped. I also didn't appreciate him inviting the front desk person nurse(??) to "eyeball" whether my vagina "looks like" I was raped based on whether he and that front desk person could see from a distance that the tears in my vagina and anus that were identified by the nurse at the hospital I was submitted to the night of my rape (who confirmed and took pictures of those tears)
The lady working at the front desk was attentive and helpful. Unfortunately, Dr. Cohen is another story. I found him to be condescending and on top of that, he did something during my visit that I felt was unsanitary and unhygienic. I’ve seen many gynecologists and this was by far a visit that rated very poorly. I didn’t feel he is a doctor I could trust with my medical needs. Go elsewhere.
Never coming back! Worst experience ever.
I didn’t wait long, I went in fill out the paperwork (wasn’t one of those long drawn out form) waited maybe two minutes and was seen. Initially I went in for my annual Pap smear but it turns out he’s a primary care physician too so now I don’t have to go to two different places. He accepts my insurance and was very professional. The ladies at the front desk are really nice and answered all my questions. Thank you!
Dr. Cohen gets it. His energy and focus is 100% patient-oriented. Ever have a health crisis and meet with a doctor who doesn't even make eye contact? Yeah.... NOT DR. COHEN! He is committed to hearing your concerns and working together towards guiding you to healthier days ahead. BEST IN SAN DIEGO!!
This was actually my second visit with Dr. Cohen. I was new to the area and looking for a doctor for annual tests as well as a lump I was concerned about near my breast. The first visit was fairly okay although he did make some comments that I thought to be semi unprofessional and unnecessary in regards to my body and sexuality (I am married to a woman). however, I brushed these off because he seemed nice overall. He said it seemed to be a swollen lymph node and wrote a prescription for an antibiotic. After finishing the prescription with no change in the lump I made another appointment 2 months later. This time he acted as if I was crazy and he never said it could have been a swollen lymph node. In fact he told me there was nothing there at all! I have had this lump for over 6 months my wife and several friends have even felt it so although it could quite possibly be nothing it is something that concerns me. We ended the appointment when I said I would like to be referred to another doctor and he said “I’m not worried about you.” What was upsetting to me about the visit was his lack of understanding that when someone visits a doctor it’s usually something that is really bothering them and he basically brushed me off. Obviously I will never be going back.
The best doctor ever! So patient, caring and gentle! Highly recommended!
Dr. Cohen is easy to talk to and answered all of my questions happily.
I felt very cared for. Dr. Cohen is such a sweet, knowledgeable man. He made me feel comfortable, listened to, and safe!
It was only my first appointment with Dr. Cohen, but he came across very considerate and took the time to talk with me at length about my issues. I didn't feel rushed and my concerns were validated. The nurses and front desk staff were also excellent. I like the small office feel, it's much more comfortable and less clinical than most larger offices and you don't feel rushed along from room to room only to have 5 minutes with the doctor. So far, great first impression.
Dr. Cohen was a great listener, caring and genuinely concerned about my health. He was very helpful and put my mind at ease. He explained exactly what procedures he was going to perform in detail and I appreciated it.. His staff was very thoughtful and made me feel welcome.
What a caring and compassionate provider! His bedside manner and consideration are high class. I have never left an appointment feeling more confident in the care I received. Office staff is kind and considerate as well. Appointment was on time.
I'm a very timid person and he made me feel very comfortable!
I loved Dr. Cohen. He was amazing. He was very informative and patient. He made me feel very comfortable. I'll definitely be going back to him in the future. I've found my OBGYN!
Dr. Cohen was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable along with his staff. Great service!
Dr. Cohen and his team are very caring. Sad that he no longer delivers babies cause I would have loved him to deliver mine. Very friendly and would highly recommend
Dr. Cohen and his staff were incredibly kind, thoughtful, and compassionate during my appointment. I am grateful to have found him/them for my gynecological needs.
The dr and his staff are awesome!
He was amazing and treated me so well! We talked about our family and he is now also my primary doctor as well!
Dr. Cohen was entirely lovely. Direct, but charming and sweet. I feel so comfortable with him after being quite nervous about seeing a man for my OB/GYN appointment. His staff was also incredible kind and helpful. I'm glad to know I have found my gynecologist.
Very welcoming team (assistant, nurse and doctor) Reasonable waiting time Fast and efficient medical advice
Good guy,seems honest and direct
Such a sweet doctor. I felt comfortable and well cared for. Like any of my concerns would be addressed. First pregnancy, and first appointment so was very happy with the whole experience.
Very nice, welcoming, attentive & efficient staff
Him and his entire staff are absolutely amazing.
Best staff and Doctor...hands down!
Love Dr Cohen, Great bedside manner. Comfortable to talk to and able to answer any questions I had for him.
He is absolutely fantastic! Definitely going to be my permanent doctor from now on.
Doctor was very personable and thorough. Appreciated him taking his time to ask and answer questions.
Amazing kind and extremely compassionate doctor!! I prayed beforehand who to go to and God sent me to him and I am so thankful!
Dr. Cohen was pretty nice. Definitely old school as far as just reaching in, inserting speculum/fingers/etc, without any warning. This didn't bother me but I could imagine that some people would be taken aback. My main concern is that they do not carry IUCs at all. I'm not sure why. The receptionists were very nice but didn't even seem to know what Mirena or the copper IUD were. They were going to "Call it into the pharmacy" for me when I asked about that as an option. So, if you would like an IUC, look elsewhere.
I loved it! He made a visit to the doctors fun!
he was the most caring doctor ive ever had! He was very caring, but also honest.
He was very nice. He made me feel comfortable and explained everything he was going to do. (My first Gyno visit) I will definitely be back.
My initial consultation, I felt welcomed and confident; however, when it came to follow through, patient care, and considerate. This office is HORRIBLE. I miscarried the day after going to my initial visit, scheduled an ultrasound to make sure everything was ok, the dr never provided any information about the results of the ultrasound. He gave me his opinion at the front desk in front of other people.
While traveling I needed to see a doctor due to complications with my pregnancy. Doctor Cohen was so comforting and knowledgeable of my condition. So glad I found him and I was able to see him right away.
Great. Very kind staff and made sure I got the best care possible.
He was very helpful and paid attention to all my symptoms
Fast and friendly service! They made my visit fast and enjoyable
Very personable. Seemed to genuinely care and listen to help.
Excellent bedside manor. Really made me feel comfortable and at ease. Very knowledgable.
He is a good listener and thorough. He truly cares about the well being of his patients and their overall health.
The best doctor I'v been to. He made me feel comfrtable about my illness n is very caring to help treat me. Such a nice doctor, thank you ZocDoc for referring him. His front desk receptionist is awsome.. He answered all my concerns.. highly recommend Dr. Joshua Cohen.
He was very informative and I appreciated his professionalism.
I was very nervous since this is my first visit to GYN - though I'm 27- but Doctor Cohen was the best. he answered all the questions i had prepared for him - more than 20 questions. He explained to me what he was going to do down there, and his hands were very gentle and I didn't feel a thing. He gave me good Advices regarding planning for pregnancy and sex itself. I'm happy that i chose him!
Was in and out in 30 mins. Good experience all around.
Dr. Cohen was extremely kind, caring, and as gentle as possible throughout the whole exam. He explained everything thoroughly and made extra sure that all of my questions and concerns were addressed. The staff as well were very kind and professional in their assistance.
