Dr. Lisa D Cohen has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Waited over 3 hours pass the appointment time. Rude - during examination time took personal phone call that lasted 10 minutes, talking about where boxes should be moved and about dinner - please I dare her to charge my insurance - I started crying, again she was very rude- I walked out - the most unprofessional so called doctor I have ever met - please how do people like her even keep patients???
First it started with a long wait in the waiting room till I got called into the inside room for Dr Cohen. She spoke to me in a very nasty manner & not professional asking questions-each question I answered & or thing I said to explain why I came in for appointment &, my personal issues she questioned me or gave me a look like really like I was lying. I told her about 1 1/2 yrs. ago about a car accident I had & then said I was-was feeling better & now I have different issues-she very rudely said âDid the car accident settle & closeâ, I said yes & then she said when I got the money did the money make me feel better (rude), She asked me about some tests if I took so I mentioned some test I took not sure of the name &what date; when & where I said Kaiser Permanente Insurance said she never heard of that insurance she got upset with me, stopped typing, threw up her hands, shook her head and said she would put down in her notes whatever and question mark down. She then asked me to put my foot on a stool -said I can't lift my foot & looked at me & said ok like I was lying she will do this little test with my foot on the floor. If I didn't answer fast enough said & motioned with her hand & head answer it would be nice if I could answer in this century-nasty. I mentioned something & she said she did go to school. She made me very nervous I felt like saying-but I didn't you should of been an interrogating attorney in a crime case rather that a Nerologist specialty Dr.-no caring, feeling, or empathy for her patients .I dropped a MRI disc. on the floor along with her making me nervous & asked her if she wouldn't mind picking it up for me I can't because I have a bad back and said she also has a bad back it hurts too. I asked her about the tear listed in my paperwork & she yelled where & said what tear-like there wasn't any & I said there was. I couldnât find it at the time but I did find it later, After scheduling the nerve conduction test and follow up test and left the office I called in next day to ask who does the nerve conduction test if it was Dr.Cohen I would like to have a different Dr. do the test said I can't switch around Dr's like that-then did make change. I got a call, a message on my voice mail & person said the newly scheduled Dr.Yu was not confortable with seeing me because Dr. Cohen discharge me & not wanting to see me-its the other way around Dr.must of bad mouthed me & didn't give me a chance to make my complaint; knowing I didn't want her anymore. Then if that's not enough I got a certified letter sent me that I didn't yet pick up. Note in other notes I noticed letter's like this was sent out before.I understand Dr's have the right to refuse service to any patient but the one that didn't want to see me I didn't even see yet he was taking an other Dr's word for this .I heard of bad day's-but this was the worst day for me. Even when my appointment was over on my visit a staff member when I was looking for the Dr.who quickly left the room slipped away fast & talked to me with her back to me I asked where did the Dr. go said she is so loud I could her where she is. Like I said loud, bossy, rude,attitue etc. Can't see how anyone would like to be abused by her or that she even could be nice to her patients?
