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 formore 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.

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 inthe 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 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 butarrived 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.

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.

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 obviouslythe 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.

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 hoursthe 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.

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.
