11/05/14 5 1 3 3 I have been a patient for about nine months. While he has been helpful, his priorities seem to be 1) Financial, and 2) Regulatory. I have NEVER been billed twice in the same month for an appointment, until him. I have seen dozens of PM Dr.s. He takes notes during our seven minute appointments and so does not hear 90% of our conversation. Seems more concerned documenting for the DEA than he is hearing me! Charges me $400.00 before I sit down, not afterwards which is usual. Needs to pay more attention to the patient's well being and not his wallet! 99% of Dr.s will not charge you if you see them a week later. Dr. K , as he bills himself, will!  Respond

15/08/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. K is the best doctor around... he really listens and cares. His medical knowledge is astounding and he always explains everything in detail. He seriously has your best interest at heart and wants to see you living a pain free life. I have two bulging discs at the bottom of my spine and was in such bad shape I could hardly sleep. Thanks to Dr. K my pain level is now bearable and I'm living life again. I could go on and on but the bottom line is if you're in severe pain, go see Dr. K... you won't regret it!  Respond

15/07/13 5 4 5 5 Dr. K is the best doctor I have had in my life. He is caring and involved. Gayle, his assistant, is also wonderful. They are trustworthy and Dr. K is exceptionally knowledgeable on the subject of pain management. He is sometimes a tiny bit late but 10 minutes here or there is well worth the 30 to 40 minutes he spends with each patient. It's too bad Drs like him (Dr. K) are rare nowadays.  Respond

11/06/13 5 5 5 5 I spent years in constant pain, for a host of reasons. I tried it all, including, ultimately, multiple spine surgeries. My surgeon was a great surgeon, and for that I'm grateful. But he sucks at pain management, which I didn't fully realize until my first appointment with Dr. K He changed my life for the better and continues to do so. I went from having accepted that my life might be ok but would be full of pain to learning that I can live a live a good, active life, with my pain under control. Dr. K is that doctor who actually listens to you and what makes sense for you; he's never rushed or dismissive, and as a bonus, his assistant Gail is great, too!  Respond

21/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. K is one of the best doctors I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Dealing with chronic joint pain is not easy, and he knows how to deal with every issue I've had that's related to pain. He'll even refer you to other doctors he trusts, if he feels a specialist is better suited for your condition. He's thoughtful, considerate, patient, and understanding of your unique needs as a patient. He doesn't just hustle you in and out, like most doctors tend to do after a while. He takes the time to figure out the problem and then gives you realistic ways to help treat or fix whatever you're dealing with. If you are in the LA area, and are in need of a true medical professional, then do not hesitate to give Dr. K a call. And Gayle is great too!

20/03/13 5 5 5 5 A Doctor you can Trust! Dr. Kamyar Cohanshohet (familiarily known as "Dr. K"), is a consummate professional. A thoughtful, intelligent physician, he offers a profound insight into the many ramifications of pain management. Over nearly two years now, he has proven to me enormously capable and sensitive to my needs. My chronic pain situation has evolved over the course of our association, and Dr. K has responded to that evolution with a remarkable sense of compassion, yet also with the due caution expected of a doctor in his field. I can honestly report that Dr. Cohanshohet will provide a tremendous insight into your pain management requirements, and then offer a regimen of medication that will satisfy your needs. Because of his highly attuned insights, he will only offer a responsible course of action, yet still provide a truly compassionate and effective regimen of treatment. If you want a doctor you can trust, he's the one, in my opinion.  Respond

07/02/13 5 5 5 5 Yes the cost to see him seems high but when you factor in the quality of service and care you recieve,it is truly low. First things first his staff is very, very helpful. I was moving from MD to CA and they Meade the transition very easy. Second if you have a 10 am appointment you will be seen no later then 10:05am. He does not see very many patients each day so he's never running behind. When I was seeing him typically he had 20-30 minutes set aside for each patient and it was nice to finally see a doctor who was willing to spend more than 5-10 minutes with me. He truly cared about my well being and we spent lots of time just talking. He gave me great advice for life and for other ways of helping to treat my pain besides just taking pain meds. I would have continued to see him had I not moved to San Diego and got health insurance and was able to see a doctor there in S.D. I have pre existing health conditions and couldn't get ins. He was the only Doc that I could find who would see me  Respond

22/10/12 5 5 5 5 Having lived with a degenerative disease that causes impaired mobility & chronic pain for 20+ years, I have seen many doctors. I previously lived in Michigan & was blessed with seeing a truly awesome doctor. When moving to California, I was fearful of not being able to find one here of the same caliber. Then I found Dr. K & I soon realized this would not be the case. On my 1st visit I found Dr. K to be caring, compassionate, understanding & knowledgeable, and he never made me feel like a drug addict or drug seeker. He did a thorough history & physical, requested my medical records & developed a treatment plan which included my input-something that greatly improves patient compliance. He is very easy to talk to & understands how the whole person & what they are going through affects how well the treatment plan will work. I have never felt rushed at any of my appointments. The office staff are always friendly & courteous. I will recommend him to anyone I know that may need his services.  Respond

15/10/12 1 3 1 3 I called in due to the Free Phone Consult Ad and was told Dr would call back in an hour (Fri). No call by Mon. so decided to call back and recptionist was very rude stating flatly that Dr had decided he could not help me since I had asked a question about mandatory UA (Urine Analysis). Was mid sentence in a second question and receptionist cut me off and said she couldnt spend any more time. My results were : Rudely treated, No phone consult of any kind. Best of luck with this place.  Respond

14/10/12 1 5 1 1 I asked Dr. K. a question related to my health. Oddly, he proceeded to pull out his cell phone and then he looked at me and flatly admitted that he was conducting a google search for my answer. Naturally I was shocked that any doctor (especially one that charges $300 a visit) would somehow justify using the google search engine to look up a medical question. Such unusual activity makes it difficult to tell if Dr. K is a real doctor or a quack. Otherwise my impression is that Dr. K likes to brag about the sports team he helps and he seems to be in Beverly Hills possibly to maintain his image and lifestyle which at times seems more important to him than actually helping regular people. Thank you for reading this important comment.  Respond

15/08/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Cohanshohet is very attentive during an office visit and takes the time to understand issues and current condition.

28/06/12 5 5 5 5 After seeing many doctors who had no compassion or sympathy for me I found Dr. K. I have been suffering for years with chronic back pain and coccyx pain due to a fall in 2009. Every doctor told me the same thing, there was nothing they could do for me and would only prescribe me ibuprofen. One doctor every suggested surgery without even first doing an MRI. After much frustration and eventually depression i was ready to give up and just live with the pain. Then I found Dr. K. Not only did he take the the time to listen to me and sympathize but he took steps to get to the bottom of my pain. He is compassionate and caring. Has the best bed side manner of any doctor out there. He has helped me tremendously with my pain and dealing with the depression and stress that comes with being in chronic pain. I'm so glad I found him and I would definitely refer him to any friend or family member. He is so kind and caring, just the kind of doctor anyone in pain could ever hope for!!! Thank you Dr.K!  Respond

22/02/11 4 5 5 5 I became Dr. K's patient about four months ago. I had seen one other pain management Dr. And one other orthopedic surgeon before I went to him, so I've had other experiences to compare with. He is extremely compassionate and has a marvelous manor about him. He treated me like he actually cared about my well being as a person and not just a chart being suffuse from one side to the other. His fees are slightly higher but you really get what you pay for here. I honestly would refer a family member if they needed his care.  Respond

09/12/10 4 5 5 5 Dr K as he is called is very caring and knowledgeable. After five years of seeing of Kaiser doctors, I decided to go to a specialist to get a second opinion. Its really true when they say you get what you pay for: Dr. K not only alleviated my problem but also gave me his personal cell phone number and insisted that I call him with my progress. I don't easily write good reviews (see my other reviews) but I recommend Dr. K to anyone with chronic pain issues.  Respond
