Back Playing In My Life!

I am thrilled by the results of having Dr. Cohen replace my bad knee with one that has taken me far and wide this year! I was back with my workout group doing adapted exercises two months after surgery. I've walked a couple of 5k races and spent a week exploring London on a chocolate adventure with full mobility! I really appreciated being listened to and having my healing be a partnership of success.

Great surgeon who cares about his patients and his work!

Dr. Cohen has a wealth of knowledge and practice in orthopedic surgery, which he pairs with a warm & welcoming personality that makes you feel cared for the moment you walk into his office. He promptly identified the scope of my patellar tendon rupture and he clearly explained both the repair and the road to recovery. His passion for his work was clear from day 1, and he places the needs of his patients first. I saw him on a Monday and he repaired my knee 2 days later, never skipping a beat.

Cut you open for money and threw u away afterwards

Poor experience in general. One of the staff at the office even admit to me that a mistake occurred in the operating room. When finally seen the doctor after that complication, he went listen or exam me. He released me from care. I personally won't send anyone even an animal to him.
