Testimonials from the patients of Dr. Michael Cohen

“Dr. Cohen has been such a blessing! He worked with my breast cancer surgeon from the beginning to plan the best possible outcome, saving much of my breast after my mastectomy. I have a lot of preferences, and Dr. Cohen continuously develops and improves on our plan, adapting to my needs as necessary. I never feel rushed. He carefully listens to my questions, and he gives me detailed answers. He has always treated me with respect, kindness, and professionalism. I don’t know how I could’ve made it through without him.”

“Dr. Cohen is amazing! He is professional and takes time with his patients to make sure they feel comfortable and well informed about the process. He is a perfectionist (the hospital nurses let me know this as well, he has a great reputation) and he is invested in his patients wellbeing. He makes sure he calls to check in during recovery and is present for post op appointments. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”

“Dr. Cohen was absolutely amazing! He was warm, compassionate, patient, and kind. He answered all the questions my husband and I had with facts and honesty. He looked us in the eye when he spoke to us. (something that is very important to me.) He is very professional from the first visit to the last. He and his staff treated me with humor and truth and never made me feel like I was just another number. I would highly recommend Dr. Cohen and his staff.”

“What a wonderful experience I have had with Dr Michael Cohen and his wonderful staff, every single one of them. I had researched online all I could and just saw that Dr Cohen was who I would trust with my life and I was right. Very easy to schedule with him and he is prompt and efficient. Dr Cohen is a caring and skilled surgeon. My surgery, pre-op and postoperative was everything he prepared me for. I had no surprises. I absolutely recommend Dr Cohen.”

“Putting my care in the hands of Dr. Cohen proved to be a wonderful decision. Last week, I underwent skin removal (a panniculectomy) performed by Dr. Cohen. Today, I looked at my new flat belly for the first time and I am so very pleased with Dr. Cohen’s work. I look fabulous!!. I had the utmost faith in his ability to provide what I needed because even before I saw him, the nursing staff told me, on a few occasions, that Dr. Cohen is a meticulous surgeon and that he is always a pleasure to work with because he demands the best for his patients. He was even able to save my belly button, which is lost in many cases. He is gentle and caring and I knew that he would take great care of me and he did. Even though I am 67 years old, he made me feel important and that I was worth his time. He is one of my heroes and I will be forever grateful. He was patient with me, answering any questions I had. He educated me so well that I didn’t feel anxious or concerned at all. I look forward to my very best years now. I know they are ahead of me and not behind and it is all because of you, Dr. Cohen. You rock!!!”

“First and foremost he’s such an awesome doctor. He is thorough, answers any and all questions. I honestly couldn’t be any happier with my choice. His staff is also quite amazing. The office is super clean and inviting. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen.”

“Dr. Cohen is a spectacular surgeon. He not only gave me back my body I had before having my 4 children, but was able to make a few extra changes to compliment. I had both a tummy tuck and breast augmentation with fat transfer. He listened to my needs, recommended the best plan of care, and explained thoroughly the process. His kindness and thoughtfulness during my care was exceptional. His staff also goes the extra mile for patient care. I could not be happier with my results. I highly recommend him for all your surgical needs, he is the very best!”

“I lost 115lbs and had a quite a bit of skin over hanging my belly I was a bit worried because often unlike tummy tucks panniculectomy are often not pretty after. Dr Cohen however not only took the skin but actually worked to give me a stunning abdomen. I could not be happier with this.”
