Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Cohen - Posted on December 19th, 2016
Very Disappointed in the overall process. Process as more like assembly line vs taking care of the patients needs. May be a good Dr., but will changing doctors prior to any further consultation due to the inability of doctor and supporting staff to effectively communicate to take care of my needs around scheduling an appointment for a procedure.

Dr. Cohen did everything he could for me to avoid surgery including a bone growth stimulator and it was successful. Others have said he has a bad bedside manner but I disagree. He has a good sense of humor and is able to connect with different personalities. He may be frank, but he is truthful.
Great Surgeon !

More about Dr. Michael J Cohen
Dr. Cohen first thought of a career as a cardiac surgeon when he was in high school. He pursued medicine, but on a slightly different path. Dr. Cohen is an orthopedic physician who specializes in treating the hand and upper extremities. He attended DePaul University where he received his undergraduate degree. He chose to attend medical school at the University of Chicago Medical School, because they are a medical research leader. He completed his orthopedic residency at Loyola University Medical Center where he spent part of his study in rheumatology. This opportunity, he feels, was especially useful, in that he continues to draw on those experiences in treating arthritic problems. To further his knowledge, he completed a hand and upper extremity fellowship at University of Chicago. Dr. Cohen treats patients for conditions that affect the hand, wrist, arm and shoulder. He particularly enjoys treating patients with rotator cuff tears, carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis of the thumb. Restoring a normal level of activity for a patient is very rewarding. He enjoys working with patients who have a positive outlook and an active interest in working toward recovery. This collaborative spirit also extends to Dr. Cohen’s colleagues. He enjoys sharing knowledge with other specialists at Meridian Medical Associates that ultimately benefits his patients. Dr. Cohen and his wife are raising two boys. He enjoys photography, fishing, boating and bicycling in his free time.
