Verified Patient Reviews
I really liked his calm and friendly attitude. I only had one session so far but looking forward to the second appointment. He doesn't take insurance and it will make it hard for me to see him for long but so far pretty good experience.
Great listener and insightful. Seems immediately trustworthy.
He really takes the time to understand what you're going through and answer your questions. He's extremely knowledgable and puts you at ease right away.
Smart guy and pretty easy to talk to, but was unable to make me feel comfortable coming back. 1) He personally charged me which just felt weird (most doctors I've been to have a front desk that takes care of it). 2) He charged me before the appointment started right after introducing himself (not sure if this is industry standard) which also felt weird.
competent, ethical and caring doctor.
Very thoughtful and thorough intake and first session. Caring, genuine doctor.
One single word: EXCELLENT !!!
I was so impressed by how quickly Dr. Cohen was to respond and by how perceptive he was. Great experience overall!
I have only been to a few psychiatrists in my life and Dr. Cohen was the best. He seemed genuinely interested in knowing what was going on and presented possible solutions, not the only solutions.
He called me multiple times to make sure I knew my out-of-network coverage and during our session took the time to listen but also pushed me to examine complex thoughts/relationships.
Professional and courteous, would highly recommend.
