Specialties

Dr. Steven Cohen has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Absolutely, the best of the best.

Extremely intelligent, thorough and skilled. Best physician I've had for personal care in my 78 years. His skill and diligence has saved my bacon on more than one occasion.

If your condition is serious - AVOID THIS DOCTOR

Diagnosed me with Crohn's, then scheduled colonoscopy two weeks later. I found out it was because he was going on vacation. His staff was totally unresponsive when I had a flare up and was hospitalized during his vacation. I switched specialists and my new doctor said immediate treatment is critical to putting Crohn's in remission. He couldn't believe Dr. Cohen delayed my colonoscopy/biopsy for two weeks. Also, Dr. Cohen gave me only the worst-case scenario of my disease. I have since learned that there are much more possible outcomes. If you might have something serious - AVOID THIS "DOCTOR".
