Dr. Cohen always goes above and beyond. He listens and responds with care and thoughtfulness. This time, I had a specific concern that could impact my job, and he worked with me to ensure he could help in the best way possible. I am very grateful for the care and attention he always shows me.

Dr. Cohen is so helpful and reassuring. He listened to my concerns, was thorough with his questions and exam and was very accommodating when I wanted to have my MRI in Denver. He completed the peer review immediately which made sure that my scan was not delayed.
