Dr. Amir Cohen is an exceptionally brilliant, competent and compassionate doctor and eye surgeon. He performed a valve implant to relieve glaucoma pressure and I have no doubt that his quick action is what has enabled me to continue working and lead a productive life. I feel secure knowing that he is monitoring my progress. He always knows about the latest medical advances in treating glaucoma. He took the initiative to reach out to me when preservative-free glaucoma eye drops became available and they have improved the comfort of my eyes so much that I am now able to wear my contact lenses all day. He is also extremely pleasant and truly interested in the well-being of his patients. I wish all of my doctors were like him.
