Dr. Ivan S Cohen has the following 2 specialties
- Addiction Medicine
An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.
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.

He's very clearly a narcissist, and he talks to others as if their very existence is a complete irritation to him. He was pleasant one single time, for about 60 seconds. Beyond that he's been a total jerk with a seriously bad attitude. He doesn't care one bit about the patient and their health or wellbeing. My recent conversation with him- Me to Ivan Cohen: "I think we've lowered my suboxone dose too quickly, I've had diarrhea for 3 weeks straight, I'm constantly pouring sweat but I'm freezing cold, I've been terribly dehydrated from all of this. At times I'm in such severe pain that it's unbearable to move at all, I've barely slept at all for the last 2 weeks, & I'm always nauseas & I can't eat because I just throw up. I've been so depressed, and I don't usually have consistent depression. As you know I work 65+ hours a week, & have a position of serious responsibility. It's really starting to affect me at work, & I've missed days because of all this. The CEO has called me into his office 4 times in 3 weeks, wondering what is going on with me lately. My job is in jeopardy, and I need and like my job. It's not just a job, it's my career. Do you think we could stick to 4mg for a couple more weeks so my body can acclimate, and so I don't lose my job?" "Dr." Cohen's reply: "I'm not keeping you on medication so you can keep your job, I don't care about your job or what happens WITH your job." Are you kidding me? I let out a small, unsure, confused chuckle, because I assumed he must be joking around. (What kind of doctor would say that? I can't fathom ever talking to someone like that, and I'm obviously not even a doctor.) He then says "is something funny? I didn't hear anything funny." Here's my story with him, for anyone who cares to know. I've been on suboxone for about 5 years now, unfortunately. I generally prefer a straight to the point kind of Dr., mainly due to the fact my job is demanding, & don't get enough time with my wonderful wife. My previous Dr passed away, and I had to find another. I've now been with Cohen for about two months. I told Ivan Cohen that I eventually wanted to be off the suboxone, because I didn't like being chained to something. During my first meeting I was my usual cordial-self, and out of the blue he implies I was lying to him about something, I can't even recall what it was. I had no reason to lie to this man, I came to him looking for help with properly handling a suboxone taper. He decided to immediately cut me down to 6mg from 8mg, to which I agreed with no argument. 2 weeks later her dropped me to 5mg, another 2 weeks down at 4. He told me I wouldn't even notice the difference, and it wouldn't affect me or my work. I tried my hardest to convince myself these withdrawal symptoms were in my own head. When I got so bad I couldn't function, he didn't care about any of it, he just lowered the dose more. That's not even half of it either, all this aside, he's just a mean little man, full of rude, derogatory comments. I felt like the nicer I was to him, the more he rolled his eyes or said something in a smart alec tone. I'm sad to say, he's proven to be a nightmare for me, and it's caused some constant depression. From the derogatory remarks, to the fact that my career is rapidly falling down the drain because of this jerk. No psychiatrist should talk to their patients in a fashion that causes them to feel like nothing more than a bleeding hemorrhoid, by the time they leave the office.
Per my nature & upbringing, I'm a reasonable, rational person, with a calm demeanor, amicable no matter what someone else does. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt multiple times, & always assume the best of people, until proven otherwise. I treated Dr. Cohen no different, but he is a mean little man. I've been to him for a few months now, and at first I thought he just had a tough shell until he better knew someone. At my fourth visit, he was pleasant for the first time since I'd met him, he listen to the problem the decrease of medication had caused, and even suggested we stay at that dose for another couple weeks so my body would acclimate better to the change. When saying goodbye at the end of this visit, he actually smiled, saying "have a good Christmas". I thought I'd finally made it through his shell. I was very very wrong. He got worse the next time. I hate to say this about anyone, but Dr. Cohen is rude & derogatory, even in the face of unwavering politeness. I came to him for help, and he's been a total nightmare, and causing me a terrible depression that I didn't have before going to him. I've never felt so down after meeting with anyone at all. Never in my life have I been treated so poorly by a Doctor. He's irrational and negative. I'm very upset by this experience with him. I would never recommend him to anyone whatsoever. I'm a kind, generous person, with a big heart and the utmost of empathy. I feel other people's pains, and I try to help however I can. I can't even fathom being as cold and rude as he has been to me. Especially in a position that generally requires one to be cordial, at least.
