Ratings for Dr. Dana G. Cohen
To begin with, I'm writing under an 'online' name so the name Allie is not in their records. They could respond to this comment by saying I'm not a patient but that's none of my concern. I just want to relay my experience. I've been going to Dr. Cohen for about 2-3 years. There was a break for almost a year in seeing her because we moved out of the country. I started to see Dr. Cohen because my friend who is dealing with PCOS and Hashimoto's started going to her and she came at her recommendation. I was happy to see Dr.Cohen because I have subclinical hypothyroidism and no regular doctor had deemed it necessary for me to get medication and Dr.Cohen prescribed me Naturethroid after doing a TRH test. The prices were pretty steep as the consultation is 500+ and each time you visit her with bloodwork and supplements and such, it would average to about 500. But I still went to her because I couldn't find a regular endo who knew much about hypothyroidism. The last time I visited her was my last time going to her. I saw her on a Wednesday and she told me that I should call her on Friday because I needed to get the results of my bloodwork and prescription as my current one was running out. She told me to call early in the morning as she was leaving at 1. I called her shortly after 8 and left a message with the receptionist. I told her it was important that I speak with Dr.Cohen today because I am running out of my medication. She said she will relay the message and I told her I will call back around 11 if I hadn't heard from Dr.Cohen by then. 11 comes around and no call. So I called again and this time I asked for Denise, who is Dr.Cohen's assistant. I told her that I need to speak with Dr.Cohen because if I don't speak with her on Friday, I will run out of meds before Monday. And she isn't even in until Tuesday. Denise said she will tell her. At 12:45 I called again thinking that Dr.Cohen will be leaving at 1. Denise then tells me she won't be leaving at 1 today because she has lots of patients and that she will make sure that Dr.Cohen calls me before she leaves. Guess what? No call. I can't believe that I have to pay on average $500 every time I see her and I still have to chase her down, especially to get a prescription when she knew I would run out of medication if she didn't call me that day. I went there on Monday to their office to demand my results and that she call me. She wasn't there but Denise was and she was so apologetic, saying that she relayed my multiple messages. I asked her if she had told Dr.Cohen that I will run out of my meds if she didn't call me on Friday and she said she did. What kind of doctor doesn't care whether their patient will run out of meds? Only the money hungry ones. Dr.Cohen does not bother to do any work if it's outside of her office hours. I guess running out of meds was no exception. On that Monday, Denise gave me some excuse about how they were waiting on test results, which is why she couldn't call me. Umm...1. I wasn't even made aware you were doing them and 2. you couldn't relay that to me in my multiple phone calls? and finally, so you're waiting on a test result therefore it doesn't matter whether or not a patient takes their pills? It has been a few weeks since I've collected my test results and Dr.Cohen has not even called to go over them. We had discussed possibly switching back to Naturethroid or adding Cytomel to my Synthroid and we were supposed to discuss this after the results and nothing. Dr.Cohen is a prime example of what a doctor shouldn't be like. It's sad that these holistic practitioners take advantage of the fact that regular endos are not very knowledgeable about certain conditions and we are desperate for answers. Shame on you, Dr. Cohen.
Hmmm, can't help but wonder if the negative reviews are fake. Dr. Dana Cohen literally changed my life. I have worked with Dr. Cohen for the past 6 years and have referred many of my clients to her whenever I suspect an underlying hormonal issue (I am a Psychotherapist). Dr. Cohen diagnosed my significant thyroid issue which my other doctors missed completely, and has seen me through a number of health issues. What I love the most is that I trust her to treat the underlying cause of my symptoms rather than just treating the symptoms. Actually, what I really love the most about Dr. Cohen is the fact that she treated my adrenal fatigue and supported such optimal health in my body that I had a natural pregnancy and healthy baby at 48 (our beautiful girl is almost 2).
Dr. Dana Cohen is a genius doctor. I had been sick for four months when I went to her, and neither my pulmunologist, cardiologist, ENT person, LPR expert, Family doctor, knew why I was sick. Dana was kind, compassionate, matter-of-fact, and she discovered I had a bacteria in my gut that didn't belong there, and that my thyroid was not working. She answers all questions, gets right back to you and I trust her completely. Plus, miracle of miracles, I am beginning to feel better.
She claims she will help you with alternative medicine, but will not and she pushes expensive tests if she cannot understand the problem. She has a very poor bedside manner and if you are not happy she wants you out of her office as fast as possible.
I find her to be dangerous. She does not take emergencies seriously and anything she thinks she might not know she passes off as "I don't do that." She does not return calls herself even in emergencies, but will give advice through her assistant. Her assistant is pleasant and compentent and it is a shame that Dr. Cohen puts her in that position.
