A Lazy Doctor

When a patient must wait 5+ weeks to see a doctor in this practice when experiencing symptoms, then told that you don't need a colonoscopy, when in fact you do...there's a problem. Due to Dr Cohen's improper handling of a patient and their symptoms, the colon ruptured which resulted in death.

Bad news needs to retire

Horrible man MD. He didn't introduce himself r make eye contact. I saw him for liver biopsy consult. He read ultrasound report and said "This doesnt look good." Read Mri report said"this doesnt look good" Sent me for every blood test for CA./METS. I went into emotional tailspin.Almost had a breakdown. All tests were negative. Stay away from this pos schmuck.

worst

bedside manner was mistaken for bedpan manner. If there was less than one star, I would have been more accurate. Money grubbing, overbooked. His "God Complex" Time is way more important than your time. Not his only office, because there are only so many paying patients in any area that are willing to wait for this "doctor" to talk down to you and try scare tactics for additional colonoscopies.

Five Stars

I have had only outstanding experiences with Dr. Cohen. He is very competent. He has always answered any questions I have had and treated me with great care. He is a wonderful diagnostician and would recommend him highly. I had some very serious issues and he squeezed me in and took the time out of his very busy day to help me. This is t something you see these days. Some of these negative posts don't sound founded.

Terrible experience

This doctor was called into my dying mother's room to drain her belly of fluid. He was cold and detached with no gentleness at all. She cried out in immense pain. The experience haunts me. The last thing a person wants is to see a loved one not only dying but suffering.
