I had injured my knee at work and suffered a partially torn meniscus. Dr. Cohen immediately diagnosed my pain correctly and thoroughly explained my injury. He later performed a partial meniscectomy and I was back to work two months later after a great deal of hard work. It's been 6 months since the surgery and my knee is still getting stronger every day. I'm able to do all the things I became accustomed to before the injury and maintain a very active lifestyle and profession. Thanks Doc
Dr. Cohen performed a shoulder replacement for me. It was highly successful and I have almost full range motion back after three months. He is pleasant, informative, answers questions and helpful with all requests. I highly recommend him and STAR Physical Therapy,
