Specialties

Dr. Eric R Cohen has the following 3 specialties

  • Neuromuscular Medicine
  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Gratitude

Let me start by saying I never write reviews, none the less for a doctor. However I saw dr cohen recently and I wanted to share my experience. I had a severe headache while I was at my sons baseball game. Unfortunately I was coaching so I tried to stay and manage but I eventually couldn’t and almost passed out. I have never had a headache like this prior. I went to the local hospital and they essentially dismissed me. They told my wife they thought it was stress. Stress?... I was have been on vacation for a month and was having the time of my life coaching my sons game?? Anyway as I was still in pain and I made an apppintment with an outpatient neurologist. I have always had luck with smg docs and thought they offered a step up in terms of care. Dr cohen saw me that day. He was very concerned with the symptoms and also put myself and my wife at ease with his demeanor. He said something didn’t add up and asked questions the er didn’t. to look into what he called an acute neurological issue and a potential dissection he sent me to the imaging center that day and literally called me himself later in the day. Apparently one of my neck vessels had torn… nuts right. He needed to put me on a blood thinner for months. The care he offered and the correct diagnosis he made in light of the er missing it, my wife and I can honestly say he saved my life. I am also surprised by the review prior as I cant imagine a more thorough doctor that also explained everything to me step by step with a long term plan.

happy

i have been going to dr cohen now for years. i think we started with him almost 11 years ago, when he first joined smg. he has really helped us when the times have been tough. his office is very dependable and his asst nicole is top notch. for a doctor he even has a pretty good sense of humor as well. i feel that he is honest that if he doesnt know an answer to one of questions or issues he tells us and then researches it. we appreciate that human nature. we take my mom to him as well. my husband and i have recommended to local friends as well. we are fortunate to have him take care of our family.

Everyone with uncontrolled Migraines should see Dr. Cohen

Dr. Cohen and his team are so comforting - I was so nervous because i have been misdiagnosed frim the past 4 doctors. I was referred by a friend and am so happy I followed through. My migraines are well controlled now and Im finally myself again. The office is so smoothly run, Summit Medical Group is a surprisingly fantastic medical group to be a patient at - really well organized. I had time and was not rushed, Dr. Cohen allowed me the space to speak and describe what I was feeling and truly listened.
