Dr. Janice Cohen has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Dr. Cohen is amazing!

I found Dr. Cohen through reviews like this one while I was searching for a psychiatrist during a difficult time, so I felt it was only right to add my review about my experience with her. I worked with her for several months due to severe anxiety following a panic attack and now no longer need to continue therapy and am not on any medication. I attribute that to the work I did with Dr. Cohen, who could not have been any nicer or more supportive during this time.She is a really compassionate, nonjudgmental, and kind psychiatrist who will listen to you and work with you on the things you need help with. She can provide medication if you want/need it, but is also willing to suggest alternative therapies that don't involve medication either. She doesn't overbook her patients which means that she has a flexible enough schedule to be able to fit her patients in when it's convenient for them, which is a huge plus. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a psychiatrist and/or counseling services or anyone looking for a psychiatrist that does CBT.
