Dr. Cohen treated me for stitches in my hand when I originally moved to California. I had recently undergone a surgery that required two screws in my hand prior to the stitches, so my hand was rather sensitive. Not only did Dr. Cohen take my appointment last minute, but he made sure that the cut in my hand didn't affect the recent hand surgery I had. (Had I lived here during the time I broke my hand, he, too would have done that surgery as well.) Dr. Cohen's laid back, but extreme intelligence is what had me. He is a very well-spoken doctor who obviously knows his stuff, but it goes beyond his hand knowledge. I am very picky about who I let treat me and often times many doctors are "do as a I say, not as I do," and he is not one of them. Leading a life of health and nutrition outside of your workplace is something extremely important to me. Dr. Cohen is extremely well-versed in his field, knows how to aid in recovery specific to breaks, and overall health and nutrition. Thankfully, I hardly break bones, but if I were to, he will be the ONLY doctor I see regarding my hands, wrists and elbows. I highly recommend him. His staff and the physical therapist office he works with will help you recover 110%.
Dr. Cohen is a great doctor. Most doctors that I have been to, spend 2 minutes with you, throw drugs at you, and then push you out the door. Dr. Cohen took the time to explain exactly what was going on and put me on a treatment plan that I not only felt comfortable with, but that worked. It was so refreshing to go to a doctor that actually seemed to care. I would highly recommend Dr. Cohen to anyone that has been suffering from wrist pain. Oh, and it's one of the nicest doctor offices I have ever been to!
Thanks for your kind remarks. We care a lot about our patients and are glad you had a good experience with our office. That is important to us!
Dr. Cohen was recommended to me by another surgeon in the Westlake Village area. I had sustained a comminuted impacted distal radius fracture and placement of a titanium plate. Unfortunately this occurred out of state while on vacation. Dr. Cohen was willing to take my case and I entered his office with a cast and sutures. His staff was highly organized and from arranging my first appointment to all further care the staff was excellent. Dr Cohen was compassionate and accurately evaluated my recent surgery. I am an MD and had practiced Emergency Medicine for over 20 years. My wrist was highly important to my profession. Dr Cohen always shared his evaluations with me on a professional level. Also as a physician I could watch him check on his post op surgical patients. He genuinely showed compassion and true concern that his patients healed and went through rehabilitation properly.
Dr. B, It is always nice to treat my peers and be able to help them in any way I can, especially because I know how important their hands are for what they do every day! With all of your choices and knowledge I am humbled that you chose me to take over your care.
Dr. Cohen has been my "go to" doctor for any issues I have had with my hands or elbows. He was able to repair an issue with my left hand non-surgically, which was a blessing. He has performed two surgeries that have completely improved my quality of life. Since first seeing Dr. Cohen, he has now assisted my wife, my daughter and my mother. My only complaint is that he is limited from the elbows down, if he were a GP he would be my physician!!

I saw Dr. Cohen for a wrist injury. He was caring, attentive and honest. His staff was top notch. I would definitely recommend him and his office.
I am pleased to read your comments and proud to know that you were happy with your office visit with us, particularly all the smiling staff. I look forward to welcoming you back- but hopefully you will not need to visit us again!
Since 2005, both myself and my daughters have been patients of Dr. Glenn Cohen. It is with great pleasure to give my highest recommendation. Dr. Cohen did my carpal tunnel surgery in 2005; has treated both my daughters for over a combined half dozen growth plate injuries; continues to treat my arthritic issues; and operated on me October 7, 2013, to repair severed nerves and spindle muscles caused by a deep cut to my right index finger.I knew within the first 10 minutes that I had found a phenomenal doctor and he and his staff continue to exceed my expectations. Each and every time we've needed his services, I know he is treating me and my family as if we were his own. Dr. Cohen is genuinely concerned about his patients. He is a pleasure to talk with and more importantly, your questions are answered so you can understand your circumstances. You are in the hands of one of the best doctors, as well as the best surgeon and all my referrals agree!"

I saw Dr. Cohen for a broken radius that didnt heal correctly from being casted at a different office. He immediatly took care of me and my still broken radius after 6 weeks of being in a cast. He did an amazing surgery where I had a pate with 8 screws placed to hold my bones together. Absolutely no problems! the staff here is so friendly and awesome and made it a great experience! Thanks Dr. Cohen and Staff!!
You are so welcome. I am indeed thrilled to read your compliments and learn that you are extremely satisfied with your office visits and your surgery. Thank you for the encouragement to the staff whose highest mission is to provide the genuine care and comfort for our patients.
Dr. Cohen is the most exceptional doctor I've ever gone to. Everything in his office runs smoothly and it is evident that he cares about all the details. He doesn't have layers of people that detach him from his patients. The office is lovely. The staff are always very nice. His expertise and care are outstanding. Not only is he an exceptional doctor but he is an exceptional human being. I wish he treated every other body part besides just hands because he is so excellent.

I was recently in Southern California visiting my adult children. During the stay we went to big bear to see the snow (no snow in miami). I slipped and fell and landed on my wrist. The urgent care physician said I want you to see the best wrist surgeon. And I did! Dr. Cohen is fantastic. He exudes confidence and has the skill to back it up. Every step of the way he was there for me. My surgery went so well and Dr. Cohen personally takes care of all after care. He even called me to check on me the night of the surgery. My doctor in Florida was very impressed by the surgery and my results. I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Cohen.
I am indeed thrilled to read your compliments and learn that you are extremely satisfied with your office visits. Our highest mission is to provide genuine care and comfort for our patients.
Dr. Cohen has helped 2 of my 3 boys twice each now for various hand injuries........To put it simply.......Dr. Cohen and his staff "Just Know What They Are Doing." THANK YOU!!!

From the moment I arrived at the office I was so impressed with the kindness of the front desk girl and the efficiency of the whole office. Ed, Dr. Cohen's assistant was amazing !! Dr. Cohen made me feel at ease and I liked the way he described the surgery to me. The surgery experience was everything he said it would be and I am more than satisfied with the outcome. I have already told everyone I know that he is the only hand surgeon I would ever see.

This Doctor runs his office like a swiss watch. Keep up the good work. Too bad you don't treat every body part.
It is so nice of you to post positive comments. We are happy we were able to treat you and that your visits were memorable!
I had bad arthritis in my thumb joint. I interviewed 3 surgeons. Although Dr. Cohen was the furthest away I was most comfortable with his bed side manner and I was able to speak with 5 patients who had the surgery that I was going to undergo. Surgery went perfect and he was there for me the entire time. Start to finish. He is fully invested in your care and it shows. Now I am on the list of people to contact for this surgery. Do your research, see a few surgeons and then see Dr. Cohen.
I am glad to know that you had such a great experience with our office and you would recommend us to your friends. Taking your time to post these kind words means the world to us.
Doctor Cohen presents himself in a friendly manner and listens to his patients concerns. He knows what the problem is and will treat with the most appropriate and least aggressive approach. If that is not successful then he will let you know your options, including surgery. He operated on my left hand for the CMC joint. I have been very pleased with his treatment and the therapy so far. I trust doctor Cohen to use his best judgment and have referred others to him. He is an excellent surgeon.
Thanks so much for your nice review. We try to treat all of our patients like royalty and I am pleased to know we succeeded in your case.
Dr. Cohen is a rare find. He treats all his patients with the same care and concern because he really cares about you and your well being. He hears you, he explains to you and he talks to you.
Your kind words are very much appreciated!
I am waiting for any friend to have a hand problem because I will feel so good about being able to recommend them to Dr. Cohen. He is exceptional. As a person and as a physician. And the office works like clockwork. I wish he treated all conditions.
Thank you for your kind words. Although we don't wish hand, wrist, or elbow issues on anyone, we are happy to know that you will keep us in mind for referrals. Thanks for taking your time to give a such a great review. We truly appreciate it!
Not being a huge fan of doctors or surgeries, I simply cannot say enough about Dr. Cohen, his expertise, bedside manner, caring and follow-up. I am a writer by trade and came very close to completely losing the use of my right hand. Beyond frightening. To say that I was apprehensive would have been an understatement. Dr. Cohen and his staff are top-notch in every way. EVERY WAY. The surgery went splendidly and I was typing just a few days after the surgery. Wow. Scarring is barely noticeable and the pain is completely gone. And I'm just 5 weeks out. Am I a fan? You bet I am!
I am pleased to read your comments and proud to know that you were happy with your office visit with us, particularly all the smiling staff. I look forward to welcoming you back- but hopefully you will not need to visit us again!
Doctors like this are a rare find. I saw several other "hand specialists" in the conejo. I put this in quotes because they are really just plastic surgeons making a living off unsuspecting ER patients who don't know better. These guys are looking to build their cosmetic practices but in the meantime you have insurance so they will take care of your hand. One of these surgeons almost operated on me until I realized what was going on. Fast forward to Dr. Glenn Cohen. He immediately told me no surgery. 10 days in a cast followed by 10 days in a splint and some therapy and I am 95% back to normal . Compare that to unnecessary time off work, pain from surgery and added expense for something I did not need. Be careful!! See this doctor first. He is the best in Los Angeles and knows when to do surgery.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice and very detailed review from your recent visit to our office. Your kind words do not go unnoticed and sure are appreciated!
Most doctors of such high caliber as Dr Glenn Cohen only exist in the University hospital environment. We are extremely fortunate that he chose to practice in Ventura County. Exceptional doctor and hand surgeon! Very caring, also
Thank you for your kind words. I am very happy to be practicing in Ventura County. This is a great community, and I am fortunate to live and practice here! Thank you for sharing your experience with others. I truly appreciate it!
Every doctor in town knows that Dr. Cohen is the go to person for their own personal hand problems. I send all my patients to him and my family too. No need to drive into L.A. for a University full of residents in training. Stay local and get the best care around.
When another Medical Doctor says such kind words, I am especially grateful. We appreciate your trust in us!
I originally saw Dr. Cohen for a broken wrist. I found his office to be very professional and efficient. Dr. Cohen is an outstanding doctor and I have seen him many times since my wrist injury and I would recommend him highly to anyone that asks. I know that all the people I recommended to Dr. Cohen have also felt the same as me. I wouldn't go anywhere else for my hand wrist or elbow needs.
Liked the fact that a surgeon went out of his way to treat my problem without surgery. I was given options of how I could be treated and told pros and cons of each option. Dr Cohen took the time to help me understand my problem. He did not rush me in and out of the office. His staff was very helpful. My hand is working just fine now thanks to the accurate diagnosis .
Thanks very much for the nice review. Dr. Cohen prides himself on giving patients every available option and as much information as possible, so they may make an informed decision. Thank you for sharing your experience with others. We truly appreciate it!
Dr. Cohen and his entire staff are friendly, helpful, and extremely professional while still maintaining a "family" atmosphere. I highly recommend him.
Thank you for your kind words and for recommending us to others! That is truly the highest compliment that we can receive.
I met Dr. Cohen nearly 13 years ago when I had a life-changing complicated injury to my left wrist. When I met him for the first time in the ER, I was impressed with his care, knowledge, confidence, and follow through. After a tough surgery, I was and still am very happy with the results. He is an amazing doctor who is not only smart, but personable and trustworthy. He is my "designated doctor" for work purposes in addition to a close family friend. If you are on the fence about a doctor for your hand, wrist or upper extremity, look no further!
I spent months with forearm pain. So happy I met Dr. Glenn Cohen. He figured out my problem quickly and after therapy, injections and some activity modifications I am now 100% better. Doctor Cohen gave me all the time necessary (and I need a lot of time :)His staff is equally approachable and warm. I will use him for any hand, wrist or elbow problem!!.
Dr. Cohen put my hand in a brace after I injured it in my cardio boxing class. He didn't try to sell me on any surgery or other options. My hand was better after a month of wearing the brace at night. Office staff is very friendly. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family!!!
Felt like I was at a car dealership. He's arrogant.
Sorry that anonymous felt this way. Dr. Cohen does like to inform his patients about their choices of treatment. He is not the type of doctor that just tells his patients what they should do. The patient must be part of the decision making process. After more than a decade running a private practice Dr. Cohen has found this to be the best recipe for success. There are rare patients, like this one, who prefer to be removed from the decision making process and given treatment without much say. There are physicians for this type of patient. Not Dr. Cohen.
About 4 years ago, I first met Dr. Cohen after severely breaking my hand in two places while playing soccer. Naturally, at the young age of 13 and never having broken a bone before, I was very nervous about what laid ahead in my future treatment; however, within minutes of meeting Dr. Cohen and his friendly staff my parents and I knew that I was in great hands. He emphasized the importance of trying to treat my injury without surgical intervention, only to use it if necessary and this instantly relieved my mother and I. Eventually, I did need surgery for my hand and had 4 pins placed to ensure my hand healed properly and Dr. Cohen's incredible bedside manner relaxed me and gave me even more confidence in his abilities and in my treatment. After the surgery, I experienced zero complications and had no pain in my hand and healed very quickly. Each office visit was a joy despite my circumstance and I always looked forward to seeing Dr. Cohen and his helpful staff for my check-ups. My appointments were always quick yet very thorough and I never left with any questions as Dr. Cohen always informed me of everything I needed to know regarding my treatment. Since then I have returned for a second surgery and experienced nothing but continued and expceptional service at his practice. Whenever I have a problem with my hands, I will return to Dr. Cohen without hesitation and I could not recommend anyone else to provide for conditions relating to my hands.
Dr. Cohen is an outstanding doctor and surgeon. He is very knowledgeable and compassionate. His staff is efficient and helpful. He was quick to diagnose my problem, and I have been very pleased with all my interactions with Dr. Cohen and his office staff.
Dr. Cohen diagnosed a problem I had for years that others doctors could not figure out. He operated on me and I feel amazing. Thanks Dr. Cohen, you are the best!
Thanks for the great review. We are always happy to help, especially when other doctors have been stumped! Glad we figured it out, and you are on the road to recovery. Thanks also for sharing your experience with others. We truly appreciate it!
typing with one hand. one of nicest doctors I've ever met and great staff.
Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you can still type! Patients like yourself that take time out of their day to write a nice review help me to know that I'm meeting my goal of providing the highest quality patient care. Thank you again!
Dr. Cohen has cared for both me and my child and I couldn't be more pleased! His staff is helpful and engaging, especially with my curious and slightly apprehensive 5 year old. Dr. Cohen himself is patient, kind, and very knowledgable in his field. He takes his time to understand the problem and carefully describe the treatment options and course of care. Highly recommended!!
Thanks for your kind remarks. We love to treat children, adults, and anywhere in between! We appreciate the trust in us for both your and your child’s care. Thank you for sharing your positive experience with others.
I went to see Dr. Cohen. Both he and his staff immediately put me at ease. His knowledge and expertise are clearly above the rest. I recommend him to everyone I know and they all say the same thing about him and his staff after they see him!
Dr. Cohen was recommended to me by several people. I called to make an appointment and was impressed by the attitude and efficiency of the staff. I got to my appointment and couldn't believe how nice the office was and how nice everyone was. I only waited five minutes to see the doctor. Dr. Cohen explained everything very well to me, on a level that I could understand, and discussed all of my treatment options. After seeing other doctors for the same problem, I felt like Dr. Cohen really cared about me and my problem and knew what he was talking about. I will recommend him to everyone and anyone that asks!
I am a university music professor. My hands are everything to me. I sought treatment by an attending surgeon at my university. He recommended surgery and did not give anything else much thought. I was depressed and scared of losing function permanently. Then I learned about Dr. Cohen on a musician website. He was highly spoken of. I made the 90 minute drive, waited 10 minutes in the office and then had the best interaction with an M.D. I have ever had. Dr. Cohen suggested a conservative course of treatment. He cared and his staff was equally concerned. It took a little longer but now I am back to the way I was before my problem and I have no surgery scar!!! If you want to be treated by a doctor who treats you like his brother Dr. Cohen is your Hand Specialist. A true mensch!!
My husband and I made a huge mistake. My high school daughter broke her wrist. The ER referred her to a "specialist" We saw the doctor and he was a specialist. A specialist in every body part it seemed like. There was an 85 year old lady with a hip replacement and a 40ish runner with knee pain in the office with us. We made the mistake of letting the Hip and knee guy touch our daughter. Primarily because he took our insurance (you get what you pay for :( and because the ER referred him. Our daughter did quite poorly after the surgery. Fortunately she had several classmates who saw Dr. Cohen. He is a true hand, wrist and elbow specialist. No knees, no backs, no hips in his practice. Everyone in there had a hand, wrist or elbow problem. He even refers to a therapy group in the same office. They also are hand specialists.Long story short Dr. Cohen re operated on the knee surgeons bad work and basically saved the day and my kids wrist. He is incredibly gifted and a great man too.People do your research before you see a doctor!!! See the most specialized person you can and ask around the community.
I brought my daughter in to see Dr. Cohen. The care he and his office staff gave us was amazing. I wish Dr. Cohen could treat my family and me for every ailment that we have. No matter where I live and how far I have to go, I will see Dr. Cohen for all of my Orthopedic hand, wrist and elbow needs.
Dr. Glenn Cohen runs an incredible practice. The office and staff are bright, attentive and respectful of everyone. I wish every office and Doctor ran their practice like this. Well done!!!
All I can say is wow!! From the moment they answer the phone this place knows what they are doing. Making an appointment in an emergency was easy. Hardly waited very long, Everyone treated me like a celebrity. Dr. Cohen was thoughtful, kind, comforting and he knows his stuff. Surgery was painless (he did a nerve block) and I have full function and no scar. If I ever move across the country I will be flying back here if my hands, wrist or elbow need any care.
I drove 90-120 minutes to see Dr. Cohen. He is fantastic and worth seeing no matter where you drive from. I would not let anyone else touch my elbow ever again. He is a great man with great hands.
fantastic doctor and person!
Dr. Cohen was recommended by practically everyone I encountered in Thousand Oaks. People saw my splint on and they asked what happened to me. I explained that I had surgery by a plastic surgeon after a bad fall. My wrist did not feel right and I knew something was wrong. After 2 additional surgerys by Dr. Glenn Cohen my wrist is doing great. He is highly skilled and explained everything to me each step of the way. It is no wonder that everyone sent me to him. I recommend Dr. Cohen without hesitation. I only wish I had seen him before the other surgeon.
thumb fixed w/ no surgery: A doctor at another office recommended surgery on my thumb. A friend referred me to Dr. Cohen for a second opinion, so glad I did. I never needed the surgery and my thumb is great! Thanks!
