Ratings for Dr. Leon A. Cohen
Dr. Cohen repeatedly misdiagnosed me, leaving me with a stroke the first time and 2nd time with a broken foot. Which was swollen. All he said was I need a physical. Only want to over medicate and never investigates. Not worth the five hours you sit in lobby waiting to get called back. Then another hour in a room. Before you see him or Nancy. To many patients not enough good medical care. Stay away
Made me a fasting appt didn't get seen until two p.m. Ian boarder line diabetic and took blood pressure medicine and ra meds that had me sick to the stomach could skip them...got mad cause I are a peppermint cause blood sugar was dropping..asked nurse and nurse practicable to draw my blood cause I was feeling shaky they just stood there talking about diner cooked the night before...they also dictates patients charts in triage area..leaves door open when doctor is is in with patient and deceased patients medical conditions with each other in common areas
Please do NOT pay any attention to the negative comments about Dr. Cohen. His office is old but not dirty and it is well maintained. It is true that he is almost always overbooked, but because he is such an excellent doctor I feel it is worth the wait. The comment was made about his "bedside manner". I have been seeing him for 15 years and I know he will not tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. If you can't accept the truth from your doctor, (you are overweight, you need to quit smoking, whatever it may be)find one that will say whatever you want them to say.
Office is always overbooked and rather run down. Dr. Cohen has poor bedside manners. The Nurse Practitioners are much more pleasant to deal with. Go to Leon Cohen only if he is a last resort. Dr. Cohen will tell you that you have to lose weight and then say "but there is probably no hope in that happening."
