How was your experience with the doctor?Absolute legend, no BS kind of doc who is going to be honest with you but make you feel welcome, his office feels like you are in his home and he treats you as if you are. Highly recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Cohen is super nice and asks many questions to help make sure the patient knows why they’re there! Very straight to the point and clear about what he’s going to do before he does it. Not to mention, location is so easy to get to. Without a doubt will go back.

How was your experience with the doctor?Recommend 100% - VERY pleased with my first visit to Dr Cohen’s office, staff was great, space was clean and atmospheric, Dr Cohen was easy to talk to and suggested a natural approach to treating my anxiety by prescribing an organic CBD oil instead of giving me Valium. I’ve never been more at ease during a doctor visit and will definitely be planning all future appointments with Dr Cohen. Thank you Dr Cohen!

How was your experience with the doctor?This doctor doesn’t really care. He did one test for a gastro issue, no bloodwork, and then told me to take Nexium. During the visit i tried to ask several questions, and he dismissed most of them, tried to tell me I should do 1 test at a time, each on a different visit, even though he admitted he wasn’t sure what the illness was. Clearly just looking for quick $$$. When I tried to call him back and leave messages after the issue persisted and worsened, complete silence. I had to find another Doctor. That said, his staff is wonderful - very kind, timely, and welcoming.

How was your experience with the doctor?Always happy with Dr. Cohen and his staff. I only wish that when I made the appointment online for my annual physical there was a disclaimer that those now only occur between 10a-1p. My original appointment was scheduled for 2:30p and accepted as such weeks in advance. Only found out the day before that this would not be allowed and had to completely upend my schedule to accommodate this new policy.

How was your experience with the doctor?I haven’t been to a doctor in years—partially because I’ve always hated going to the doctor, and then simply because I’m always so busy. Walking into Dr. Cohen’s office relieved all of my worries! The waiting area was comfortable and welcoming with a relaxed feel. Dr. Cohen was incredibly friendly and erasedall of my doctor concerns. So happy I’ve now found my go-to doctor!

How was your experience with the doctor?Barry Cohen is a good Doctor, but the woman at the front desk is very rude and unprofessional. She is very disorganized - had my insurance information wrong, my insurance said they never had a claim from that office, anyways a disaster.

How was your experience with the doctor?Spectacularly unprofessional office. I’ve waited two months to get results that were supposed to take two days. I’ve called weekly and am always told I’ll receive a call back that very afternoon. I’m also always told, “this is my first day working here”. Eight weeks later I’m still trying to get my results… If you don’t need anything beyond one visit, he’s an average doctor to see in a pinch. But the high turnover at the office, the unprofessional behavior of the staff, coupled with the lack of follow through gives me pause.
