"Pointed out my problem spots. Barely looked. Didn't say what was wrong and left the room. Went to another dermatologist and he removed a crusty growth on my wrist and had biopsy done the same with a suspicious spot on my back. Will never go back to Doctor Cohen again after going to this practice for years. Glad I had enough sense to see another doctor for treatment of a serious condition."

"He is excellent! If you want a no-nonsense physician who can diagnose your symptoms in a jiffy— he is the only doctor to see! I appreciate his respect for my time, being punctual and his ability to not waste any of my time— quickly prescribing what he knows will help me based on his years of expertise… If you want someone to hold your hand, he isn’t it. However, I found him to be very helpful and kind. He is a gem and hopefully others will recognize the value in seeing him for their skins issues. I am so grateful for his treatments. He has not needed to guess like others, even in the same practice. He can spot things a mile away and does not take long in doing so. "

"Avoid at all cost. This man should not be an MD."

"I was in consultation with Dr. Alan Cohen and he is the worst doctor I have seen in my life, he lacks human quality, he does not speak or look at his face in his consultation. I was there because I had to extract something that was stuck in my leg and when I arrived, he didn't even look at me to say hello, his assistant didn't have the courtesy to hand me a gown, I was the one who had to ask for it and when I did the procedure they didn't tell me what it was what they were going to do to me, he was not able to say, breathe calmly, I am going to give you anesthesia, he was puncturing my leg as if I were an animal and I am a health professional and one does not treat a patient like that, it is disrespectful That gentleman who does not have the right to call himself a doctor lacks ethics, professionalism, dignity and respect with his patients does not deserve to have a license. I would never recommend it"

"For over ten years Dr. Cohen attended my age spots with in and out visits. On June 21, 2022 I visited for a more difficult problem, shingles. He prescribed a medicine for 7 days which was very effective. The medicine ran out on a Thursday before the 4th of July long weekend. By Friday I knew I needed to continue the meds and called for a refill. Although Dr. Cohen was beside the assistant he relayed his bad news only through her. No he would not renew until he saw me and he wouldn't see me until Tuesday which would give the infection 5 days to spread. I asked her if "I had to bear with it" and she said "yes". The infection spread so alarmingly I called the office's emergency number, no one called me back. By Tuesday my left waist, buttocks, and front stomach was covered in a stripe of blisters. At our July 5 appointment I said to Dr. Cohen that this could have been prevented if he had prescribed a refill, he casually said, "You're probably right". He prescribed ointments that ...
never seemed to reach my pharmacy. When I sent an e-mail of complaint, he responded . "You should see a pain specialist". Dr. Cohen mishandled my problem and since his 88 year old patient was not getting better, he wanted nothing more to do with her. It has taken another month under my primary M.D. to get a handle on the painful, uncomfortable mess Dr. Cohen left me with. "

"Being treated by Dr. Cohen was one of the worst medical experiences that I've ever had to endure. His personally is cold and lacking in genuine compassion with very little sense of dignity. Very few details were provided for follow up treatment at home which also left a lot to be desired. His office staff was kind of sullen and not very friendly either, but I don't fault them at all since they're no doubt very weary of dealing with his crude behavior. On a final positive note, there is a women doctor there who treats patients upstairs on the 2nd floor of the same building. She is very kind, extremely competent, and understanding. She is certainly deserving of high marks and highly recommended!"

"Originally I am patient of Dr. Fishman Jose who is best of the best doctors but he retired and been told that Dr. Alan Cohen replace Dr. Fishman which I don't have a choice other then to see him to remove the cyst in my back after one visit to diagnose which dr. Fishman diagnosed it already in earlier date and another visit to remove it. Dr. Alan Cohen Refused request from the pharmacy to refill my antibiotic cream unless make another visit which I don't need it. I will never see him again for anything, will change to another dermatology"

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
