Specialties

Dr. Ralph 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.

Beware

It was awful! Absolutely awful! I was put on a LETHAL dose of a medication for the wrong diagnosis and he did not rectify it!

Dr. Cohen diagnosed me with bipolar disorder and proceeded to over-medicate me to the point that I couldn't drive safely or stay awake at work. I was on seven different drugs, at one point, and gained 60 pounds. He warned me that if I stopped taking them I would be "in trouble with the police," when I've never had a run-in with the police in my life. I had a terrible temper at the time, and feel I was punished for that. He has a very good "bedside manner," which made it easier to convince me to do as he said for such a long time. I'd advise people to listen to their own common sense when dealing with this man. Or don't deal with him at all; there are plenty of psychiatrists out there, if that's what you need.
