I have never been so happy to see Dr. Cohen. He gave me the answers I needed regarding my acute condition while clarifying my plan of care and helping with pain management. I feel much more optimistic about my condition andthe healing process. He is very knowledgeable and caring.

I was heavily disappointed with my visit at Dr. Cohen’s office. I went in for a neurology consultation because I have chronic migraines. Without asking any questions or going over any history he just prescribed medications to my pharmacy andgave me and injection. He was distant the entire time I was talking to hi and explaining the reason for why I was there. It was a rather uncomfortable experience, and I left with no answers. He is one of the most unprofessional doctors I have ever visited, and I’m thoroughly disappointed given the reviews he has. I definitely will not be going back

Was seen right at my appointment time. Dr. Cohen was very considerate during the initial consultation and made me feel a peace with what I am going through. Gave me a through explanation of his plan/steps that we are going totake to get to the bottom of what's going on. Would recommend for anyone looking for a doc who actually seems like he cares.

His phone rang twice. The first time he made a comment like, "who keeps bothering me?" and then looked at the phone. The second time he looked at his phone and then said, "it's amazing how I can tell my wifeto only contact me while I'm working if it's an emergency but she just can't understand that." When I spoke about my health he often cut me off and wouldn't let me finish. I mentioned something my surgeon said and he responded, "that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard." I'm sure he knows his field but I found the way he spoke to me was arrogant and his manner unprofessional. This was my second appointment with the doctor and I didn't like him the first appointment but he is conveniently located and had open appointments before other doctors. I will drive farther next time to avoid Dr. Cohen.

I don’t know if Dr. Cohen was having a bad day but he was extremely rude to me. There was a lot of judgement coming from him I felt sad when I left the appointment. I really thought (before appointment) thatI was going to see someone who could help me but it just wasn’t the case.

Dr. Cohen was amazing! He was very informative. I had to do an EMG and was nervous about it. He made it comfortable and easy to get through. He didn’t make it awkward at all because we had a conversation duringthe entirety of the test and it made for a better visit. I was very happy with the entire appointment!

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.
