19/04/13 5 5 5 5 I've suffered for years with chronic breathing problems and sinus infections. Allergy tests were negative and nobody could figure out my problem. In one visit Dr. Cohen diagnosed me and did a CAT scan right there. He put me on some meds for 3 weeks and then saw me back. Since not better as I told him I would not be better with meds, he recommended what he calls minimally invasive sinus surgery. I'm now 3 months out and my whole life has changed. I can go out, I can fly, I can swim and I don't have a headache every day. Hands-down he's changed my life for the better and I'm greatful!

09/04/11 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr. Cohen after a referral from a coworker for my nose and sinus problems that had plagued me for years. I got in to see him after a one week wait and we had a discussion regarding my issues with congestion, headaches and recurrent sinus infections. He scoped me at the visit and noticed some polyps. Then he told me to get on some allergy meds and got a CAT scan of my sinuses. 2 weeks later I came back and he told me of all my sinus issues and deviated septum. I decided to go forward with surgery since I had been miserable for years and the meds only helped a little. I had surgery one month ago and you can't imagine the change in my life. I'm so happy with the results and have never felt better. I can breathe without headaches and can smell things so much better. So if you have nose or sinus problems, I can't say enough about Dr. Cohen. He is the best!

29/02/08 4 4 5 5 Dr. Cohen was very polite, and caring to my son and I. He made my 32 month old son (age on 09/07) feel comfortable by talking to him first and making him smile before his examination. I was very pleased with the explanation to my questions he gave me. Also for allowing me to ask him all questions and concerns I had. He took his time with my son's appointment. I did not feel like he rushed trough it. Because of the positive experience my 36 month old son had with Dr. Cohen he is not afraid to go to any Dr.'s appointments he has. Sincerely, 28 yr. old mom Camarillo, California  Respond

15/08/07 5 4 5 5 One of the best doctors I've ever been to! He performed my sinus surgery without pain and the recovery was so easy. No packing too, I was afraid of that. He is also very good at botox and fillers which I had done with him too.  Respond

13/08/07 5 4 5 5 I just love Dr. Cohen. He is one of the best specialists I have ever been to in my life and I have been to many. He took his time with me to explain the procedure in detail and what to expect after surgery. Nothing was a surprise. I expected significant pain after thyroid surgery but I had very little and the incision was so tiny. He is absolutely one of the best and so smart and caring! I would go back to him in a heartbeat if I needed to.  Respond
