I've followed Dr. Cohen from another hospital when I first met him 19 years ago and stayed with him at Northwestern. I never regretted that decision. I feel he treats me like family. Very important to me.

While I did not agree with Dr. Cohen on some aspects of my treatment, he surely had my best interests at heart. He is very seasoned, and a firm believer in following the practices of mainstream medicine. His medical knowledge is very good, in my opinion. Very seasoned doctor.

Dr. Cohen Has been excellent with me, only one in the Chicago area. He is the only Cardiologist that has been kind enough and working with me instead of against me. I have had 3 others Cardiologist in Chicago in the past that that were very bad and very very arrogant. The only other Cardiologist that showed this high level of compassion and concern and skill was Dr. Click out of Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. I cannot Thank Dr. Cohen enough for being as good as they get as understand with a very high level of compassion. Many other can learn from a Doctor Cohen if they were not so arrogant. I am so grateful for having someone I feel I can trust and work with.

Dr. Cohen is marvelous. I moved to Wisconsin and still consider him my primary cardiologist. He's one of the best docs I've ever had in terms of listening to my concerns and including me in my care decisions. I have utmost respect for him, his partners and staff. LF Hospital is lucky to have him.
