Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Cohen is very professional, compassionate, patient and friendly. He explains everything he is doing explicitly, there is never miscommunication. I would never go to anyone else. Thank you so much Dr. Cohen for all your kindness and great medical knowledge.
Dr. Cohen is very professional and does a nice job of explaining options, and his rationale for his course of treatment.
Dr. Cohen is very polite and professional (he answers ALL of your questions and explains everything). I would highly recommend him to family and friends. His office staff is very nice and professional.
Dr Cohen was very nice listened to my complaints he explained things to me in full details he gave me immediate trigger point injections the pain I had was unbearable procedure was a whole 3 minutes within 5 minutes my neck pain and headache was gone Dr Cohen is the best I would not change doctors for nothing in this world he cares about you and your pain thanks doc your the best
Dr. Cohen gave me his opinion of my condition and proposed the least invasive treatment available.
It went super quick and everyone was helpful.
This is my yearly visit with Dr. Cohen. I had to remind him about not hearing back from him with results from an in-home EEG that I had in the fall. I called his office a month ago and asked for more information and the receptionist told me that she was going to relay my message to him and I didn't hear back from him. Dr. Cohen didn't receive the results from the company that performed the EEG and was going to follow up. We agreed to schedule a follow up appointment as a reminder. Overall it was a positive visit.
I saw Dr. Cohen a few years ago about chronic migraines. He was able to help treat me for my migraines and thanks to him I have been migraine free ever since! I have never had a doctor more helpful and considerate. I would recommend him to anyone!
He is a kind doctor who listens to your concerns and explains his plan of care in a professional manner. I would definitely recommend Dr Cohen to my family and friends.
My visit with Dr. Cohen went very well. I scheduled an appointment with him to help me get off of my migraine medication and he was very helpful with that! However, he did take 2 phone calls while he was in the room with me and I found that to be unprofessional. Other than that, I think he did what I needed him to do and I would recommend him to anyone else looking for a neurologist.
Dr. Cohen was very kind and knew a lot about my issue. He did a great job of explaining solutions to my problem and offering support.
He was great! Very informative, felt like home!
Dr. Cohen was able to honestly answer all my question.
One of the best doctor's I've seen. Extremely thoroughly explained all of the medications available for my migraines and their potential side effects. A very charismatic and friendly doctor who knew exactly what he was talking about and showed he actually cared.
Very personable and answered my questions in non- technical terms.
I didn't wait long and this was an appointment that was made the day before.
I am so grateful to have found Dr. Cohen on Zocdoc. It's not often that you find a doctor who is patient, informative and friendly!
great Doctor! Takes time and you can tell he genuinely cares about his patients
It was fine nothing too different.
I appreciate my doctor because of his mannerisms and concern for his patients. ??
Dr Cohen was professional and informative. He did an uncomfortable procedure on me while explaining everything, and trying to make me as comfortable. The only drawback was that I had booked the appointment on Zocdoc and had it confirmed but arrived to fine that I had no appointment as that time slot had been booked weeks in advance. They did have an opening an hour and 15 minutes later available, which I took.
Doctor is smart and listens to your concerns.
Visit was fine. Wait time was very unusual and understandable due to an emergency overbooking situation.
Dr. Cohen is friendly and appears to be knowledgeable and genuine, however the overall experience of scheduling and having phone calls returned is overwhelming. When I initially met the doctor, I felt optimistic and hopeful about things. It took 3 weeks for his receptionist to contact me about insurance approval for an MRI. I had to phone her to find out because she never phoned me. I scheduled a second appointment with Dr. Cohen to obtain my results because after 2 additional weeks, I still had not heard anything because again, I never received a call regarding the results. Second appointment was rushed and I was supposed to receive a call the next day to schedule a second procedure. It has been 2 days and nothing. Nice Man, but receptionist and scheduling process can be more efficient and professional. Will be looking into a new Neurologist.
Very nice and professional. He took his time and was considerate
Dr. Cohen spent time listening to my concerns and discussing my options. Together we created an individualized plan to meet my needs.
Great doctor. He listens, he asks questions, he explains his thinking, he is frank and clear in his assessments, and I have confidence in his treatment. Also a very personable guy.
Five star professional service, thank you
Doctor is friendly and understanding. After explaining my symptoms, he quickly made a diagnosis and walked through a treatment plan with me. Very helpful experience.
Very good and answered all my questions
Dr. Cohen is an excellent neurologist. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and friendly. I highly recommend him.
Overall, the visit was great. Dr Cohen is a great listener and answers questions thoroughly, he also explains his plans in detail. The only inconvenience is getting in touch with Dr. Cohen's office. The phone# on the business card is obviously the number for his office phone and not the front desk. I have called in the past and left messages and never heard back from anyone. On my recent visit, I asked the receptionist for another phone# and I called yesterday and this is a fax number. I will not be able to get this corrected unless I come in to the office.
Dr. Cohen took his time evaluating my background so that there was nothing missed. I was really nervous about my neurological consult but I felt a sense of ease after visiting with Dr. Cohen. Great Doctor. Highly recommended!
Very professional very very attentive to your problems, 5 stars in my book, thank you
It was a good and pleasant visit.
Quick, professional, personable.
I was on time and so was Dr Cohen. He explained my situation clearly and was easily understood. He clearly described the next steps.
Dr Cohen is one the best doctors that I have ever dealt with.
I really am pleased with Dr.Cohen. He madequate it a point to help me with my migraine and got me in touch with a Dr who also help me.
I felt very comfortable, and at ease.I'm normally very nervous when I got to the Doctors office
Spent a great deal of time with me, was very knowledgeable and amiable.
There was some unprofessional behavior I overlooked on the first visit ... I figured I'd give him a second chance - we all have an "off day." I booked my second appointment as he requested, his office called a few hours the day of explaining he wasn't feeling well and wanted to reschedule - I agreed and booked for 1 week later. I called back the same day because I was concerned about Rx refilles, I wasn't able to get in contact with anyone she I left a message. Fast forward a week ... his office calls about the Rx refills (too little too late), they call again 8 minutes prior to my appt to ensure I was going to be on time ... I explained that due to traffic I will be 7 minutes late. The nurse asked me to hold and check to see if this was ok, I asked her to remind him he cancelled last week so I would appreciate his flexibility. Apparently flexibility isn't something Dr. Cohen practices - he refused to stay. I'll be finding a new Neurologist.
Dr Lenny Cohen was very professional, kind, compassionate and answered all my questions.
Dr. Cohen engages with his patient, listens well to what is said, explains clearly what he thinks and how he intends to proceed, has a nice sense of humor and does not sugar-coat anything.
This doctor is thorough, and takes the time to explain. He is also the most patient physician I have seen lately. He gave me all the time I needed and answered every question I had. His receptionist is a "little doll" who is most professional and makes you feel very welcome when you enter the office. I recommend this physician. Joyce G.
I was referred to DR Cohen when I was at the hospital I checked with by primary doctor regarding his services she assured me he was a good doctor and she highly recommended his services. She was right I loved his bedside manner, he explained everything to me in detail so i could understand i felt very comfortable and satisfied with my visit, I'm glad i took my doctors advise, he was awesome
Great doctor explained to me what he was doing every step of the way
Dr. Cohen helped me tremendously during a horrible post concussion syndrome period for over a year. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in the Chicago land area.
Very professional. Explained the situation in understandable terms.
I felt Dr. Cohen was very knowledgable and approachable. He takes time to share information and answer your questions. I did not feel rushed.
A series of unfortunate (painful) illnesses and neurological events led to a diagnosis of a condition that can't be 'fixed'. Dr. Cohen's expertise, knowledge, kindness and confidence has given me hope. My outlook on life shifted from "when will the other shoe drop?" to "What better can happen now?"
The best doc I have seen since moving to the midwest. Actually knows what hes doing and puts a plan into action
Liked that he listened to me
He seemed very bright and helpful.
Dr was very nice listened to all i had to say and seemed to want to try to figure out what was wring with me as soon as possible and tried to keep me calm qboit my situation.
This was my first meeting with Dr Cohen. He took the time to listen to everything that was going on and educated us on what was going on before giving us some suggestions.
Very professional and to the point, always.
Really enjoyed the visit. Thank you for helpful service,
I have been a patient of Dr. Cohen's for a long time, well over a year. I first saw him when I had been searching for a neurologist. He was the 4th neurologist I saw in 4 months and I knew on our first visit he was different. It is rare to find a doctor that does not treat patients based on current political policies in the practice of medicine. He looks at the patient and actually treats the patient. His bedside manner is wonderful. His staff is friendly and helpful. I have never waited longer than 5 minutes for an appointment, even when it's crowded. Every time I have encountered a medical situation, whether it is a herniated disc or a really bad migraine, Dr. Cohen has always been there to help me with anything I need. If you're looking for a an excellent neurologist, whether it's for a simple one time appointment, or a chronic condition, Dr. Cohen will approach your treatment with patience, honesty, and an open mind. You will not be disappointed.
I liked him and felt that he was extremely knowledgeable about the issue I saw him about.
Great service as always.
It was very good very professional and I would certainly come again
He did a through analysis of the symptoms and looked at every possibility. He doesn't seem to skip a detail, no matter how small it may seem. He explained his examination well and left little doubt that he is looking for an answer.
Dr Lenny Cohen rocks! Each visit he gets better. He tells me the truth about the curability of my problems and explains what he can do for me. Thank you, Zocdoc. All of my new doctors I found thru Zocdoc.
If you have been in pain for years and haven't seen any improvements with other specialists and treatments like me, then I highly recommend Dr. Cohen. He addressed all of my questions and concerns and chose the best treatment for my condition. I have dealt with many doctors who have brushed off my symptoms and treated me like I was exaggerating but Dr. Cohen listened to every one of them and even explained possible reasons for each.
Dr Cohen is really outstanding. I thought I might have Parkinson's and he explained that I didn't have it. He explained my test results in a way that I could understand.
He was direct and explained the situation clearly!
Really fantastic doctor. You can tell he has great rapport with his patients. He did a thorough history and physical and explained our plan. I felt welcomed and listened to.
Great doctor; great service!
I felt that Dr. Cohen listened to me, was professional,knowledgeable, and caring.
patient and personable. Explained cause of symptoms and what was the treatment. interested in following up if more treatment needed
Dr. Cohen is great to work with. He is always interested in my feedback regarding my ongoing treatment and always seeks my approval for any changes in my care he thinks are necessary.
This was my second visit with Doctor Cohen. It was very informative and professional. He is a very pleasant and comfortable doctor to deal with. Barb r.
cared about my disorder, wanted to find the real cause and treatment
Dr. Cohen was prepared with his analysis of my health challenge. He offered me a tentative explanation, and requested additional testing at first opportunity. He was patient at listening to my questions, and explaining my current situation. Dr. Cohen is scientific in his approach, while working to bring the information to the patient in an understandable, kind manner.
Dr. Cohen is my new neurologist, after a series of unsuccessful neurologists working with a seemingly complex neurological problem. His analysis appeared scientific and more thorough. I am to undergo additional tests and meanwhile try another medication. I appreciate Dr. Cohen's professional, patient and kind manner.
Awesome Doctor!!! knows his stuff!!!
He assured me right away of his competence that gave me confidence of his capable hands and his bedside manners were excellent.
He was abrupt and not informative about the condition. He just wanted to prescribe drugs without explaining what and how they will affect. The receptionist didn't have a clue- she was supposed to organize follow up treatment but never did. I decided to find an alternative doctor who was more compassionate.
Great service as always!
The doctor was very professional and told me the truth
dr. cohen is good at listening to what a patient has to say and does not force a patient medication they don't want... he stills give other plans as to what to do for a patient.. he is also very prompt and helps in everyway possible... i recommend him highly in every regard
Dr. Cohen wax professional ... but friendly. Talked about my concerns ... and put me at ease. Highly recommend him!
The doctor saw us right away and he was very knowledgeable.
Great, professional service.
Great doctor. He truly cares for the need of his patients.
I really appreciate the care and advice I get from Dr . Cohen. He is very honest with his diagnosis.
This was the first time meeting with Dr.Cohen. I was able to tell him the symptoms that I had and he provided treatment right away. We discussed a plan to try and regulate my headaches a bit more. I've been tired of hearing from other doctors that it's tension headaches when I truly felt it's something much more. Dr. Cohen took his time explaining the procedure and the types of headaches I am having. I am pleased to have found someone who is willing to finally help me and not brush me off to the side. He reassured me that if what we are trying doesn't work, that we would try something else :) and that makes me feel relieved.
I think that Dr. COHEN is a very knowledgeable, and highly competent neurologist. I have great faith in him.
Excellent care. Very professional.
Always professional and he is very knowledgeable in his profession.
No wait. Professional service. Very attentive to details.
Always listens and addresses all my concerns
DR. Cohen is most helpful, and is very knowledgeable.
Seems like he knows his stuff ... just saw him today, and need to follow thru with seeing another doc for some ENT therapy and get an MRI. If that therapy helps - then he is a wonderful healer. If it does not ... I will be disappointed, and still walking around with vertigo.
Perfect as always!
He's my 4th Neurologists since my stroke in 2005. Although this trip was a little far for me, it was all worth it. He seems energetic in his field and seems to grasp technology as it advances today. He diagnosed and treated a neuralgia issue instantly.
I am happy with my visit. I cannot still tell how much until I get the result.
Dr. Cohen was great! He was very helpful and explained everything he was going to do and how it would help me. His staff was very polite and friendly. Dr. Cohen spent 40 minutes with me and I only had to wait like 5-10 minutes to see him.
Dr. Cohen has been my neurologist for 6 years and continues to steer me in the right direction with my neurological issues.
I'm glad that I seen him today. The atmosphere is nice and the staff are friendly.
Dr. Cohen is very personable and knows what he's doing. Thank you for showing humor after I had an episode in your room.
Great doc, highly recommend.
Prompt, courteous, professional service. Highly recommended!
I'm super excited...He listened...wants to find a solution. Took his time with me. I didn't feel rushed and I already have 3 follow up appointments!
He always shows concern which is true concern for the care of his patients
Helped me understand what he was doing.
He was very informative.
He takes his time and explains well.
I thought it was good, his staff were very nice in answering my questions. Dr Cohen is a good doctor.
Highly professional, answering all my questions thoroughly; listened, examined and dealt with my health concerns respectfully and knowledgeably.
Perfect experience. No wait. Professional service.
Overall a good visit. I was listened to. A good overall experience.
Free valet parking at his Rush Oak Park Hospital location. No wait time. Straight to the point Very knowledgeable All A++++++'s in my book!
He made me feel comfortable and he was very easy to talk to.
Very caring and comprehensive.
I really like Dr. Cohen. He is always honest in a humorous way. There is never any false hope with him, but he always puts a positive spin on anything he says. However, we have had problems with him getting paperwork in on time for disability applications. I finally figured out to call everyday and push/remind him to do it. Sometimes, I even had to actually go into the office and sit and wait to force him to do it. I hate to be "that" person, but there just was no other way. His staff is pleasant enough, but I think they might need some office organization. They seem to get a little flustered trying to find things around there. They always find it, so no worries about things being lost, it just seems to take longer than necessary. A professional organizer may want to stop in and offer their services.
This was my first visit and I thought he was very pleasant. I thought he was honest and sincere and very professional. I left knowing Dr. Cohen will help me with my problem.
Dr Cohen is a great doctor! I think he is one of the best Neurologists I've seen. He cares and it shows. =)
Dr Cohen is a wonderful doctor very knowledgeable in his field...he takes very good care of his patients
It was a good visit
He was great. I was frustrated that the time of the appointment was changed to an hour earlier, without any notification to me re a change. A voice mail was left for me to find late the night before with a different time than the email notificaton that I had gotten from Zoc -Doc on the same day. They had no explanation for when and how it had gotten changed and why the discrepency. The doctor was great! Cleo
HE IS A NICE COURTEOUS DR. ANSWERS QUESTIONS AND TALKS TO YOU AND NOT AT YOU YES I WILL RECOMMEND HIM I'M HAPPY WITH MY TREATMENT.
Dr. Cohen was a very intelligent and informative Doctor. He has a since of humor that puts you at ease while being in his office for the first time....HE WAS AWESOME!
I was very pleased with the doctors attention to little details and was very professional and I would definitely recommend him.
Very knowledgeable in his field. Willngness to take the time to discuss any concerns his patient may have. He is upfront and direct, something I admire in a physician. If he doesn't know the answer, he will tell you.
Both Dr. Cohen and his nurse were very personable and knowledgable. They offered several treatment recommendations and provided take home materials regarding my condition so I could be an informed consumer.
I felt Dr. Cohen and his staff were very thorough and professional.
In my case - Dr. Cohen has shown concern and really listened to whatever I had to say.
I appreciated his honest assessment of my mother's issues.
He was very careing and concerned about my health situation and I feel all Doctors should show that Thank You Mr.Cohen for your cares and concerns.
Everything went very well with Dr.Lenny Cohen today. We talked about my problems and the Doctor is going to do a lot tests to see if he could help me with my problems.
A fine professional who took the time to answer every question.
Very nice Dr., went over treatment plan. Eased my pain.
Our visit with Dr.Cohen was very productive, informative and he was straightforward with his diagnosis. We walked away from this visit feeling very good.
He listened, compassionated, understanding of patient needs,laughs at my husband's jokes, we like him also he knows his business on top of things I know my husband is getting the best care.
Very knowledgeable and proactive in my healthcare. Very personable and easy to talk to.
Dr. Lenny Cohen is very professional and he is an expert. Keep up the good work Dr. Cohen and your practice will continue to thrive.
Very easy to talk to and took his tme to learn about me. No advance paperwork because he goes through the questions with the patiient. Highly recommend him.
He got all my information, especially, what problem was I now having. Set me up for a current EEG to see any changes. Got on the same page in terminology for type of seizures, etc. This is a keeper!
It was so good and helpful,Excellent. thank you Dr.and good luck.
The doctor and staff excellent.
Very comfortable with Dr Cohen He talks to you, not at you like some physicians do
You feel that he cares about you and he will follow uo on your care.
Straightforward, listened to what I had to say. Diagnosed the problem I have and was confident about my treatments.
Dr. Cohen is a very friendly and attentive doctor. I appreciate his ability to listen and to answer my questions.
I was glad that instead of making us fill out pages of medical history, Dr. Cohen asked all the questions directly and immediatly put them into his computer as we answered them. (I never understood why medical history forms are filled out and then the doctors just ask you the same questions anyway.) This way I know Dr. Cohen got all the information.
Dr Cohen was very professional,His explanations concerning my issue, were made so I could understand.He gave me a treatment plan& we'll take it from three.Thanx Doc
On a positive note, Dr. Cohen was very thorough in his examination of me. He took the time to discuss with me my symptoms, how I had been feeling lately as well as possible tests I may need to reach a concrete diagnosis. What bothered me was that after twenty minutes, he commented that he had other patients to see and that we would continue our conversation during our next visit. As a suggestion, maybe he could alot more time for new patients to avoid this awkward situation.
He is a wonderful doctor! Very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. On top of being a great doctor, there was no wait time for our appointment! I highly recommend him! You won't be disappointed.
Dr. Cohen was very good. He asked a lot of questions and actually LISTENED when I gave answers. He wrote down everything and made sure I was tested for everything that I needed. He doesn't assume anything or just focus in on one "possible" problem. He talks to you and helps you understand what's going on. He also doesn't rush the visit like some other doctors do. When it comes to your help no one wants to be treated like cattle. Keep up the good work Dr. Cohen and don't change anything.
