Dr. Michael L Cohan has the following 2 specialties
A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Smart, compassionate and funny, Dr. Michael Cohan gets to know his patients as people and not just a list of symptoms or charts. He puts extra hours in to make sure his patients feel heard in his efforts to make them feel better. He's on top of all the latest thinking, but still brings a warmth that many in the profession shed long ago. He has helped me through some small and some serious medical issues, and I know I am receiving the best care and best advice I've ever had.
Dr. Cohan was my primary care physician for 7 years before I recently moved to another state. When I first came to Dr. Cohan the first thing I noticed was how he was attentive to my needs as a patient. Through these interactions it was clear that Dr. Cohan is also VERY knowledgeable in his field of medicine. Although I never had life threatening medical issues I would trust Dr. Cohan with anything serious. A close friend of mine did need his medical expertise for a life threatening kidney disease and she did leave her nephrologist to see Dr. Cohan. After 2 years of on going treatment he was able to restore almost 100% of her kidney functioning and saved her life (something her previous doctor was unsuccessful with). To simply put his actions saved her life. One of the problems I faced when relocating was finding another physician that I knew had my best interest in mind because of their obvious passion was helping others. Dr. Cohan is the best and I would recommend him to anyone!
