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 aprimary 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!

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 okayalthough 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.

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 frontdesk 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 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 donot 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.

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 makesure 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.

This is my 5th pregnancy and I wanted to be extra cautious because of my age. The original obgyn I was referred to for some odd reason I decided to look to see any reviews on her. I don't usually dothis kind of stuff but something just made me. Anyways she had very horrible reviews so I looked up other doctors and saw that dr cohen had 5 star reviews as so he should. He was very nice and caring. He made me feel comfortable and less stressed about my pregnancy. Even though he does not deliver babies anymore I had decided to make him my primary physician. I would definitely recommend him.
