"I saw Doctor Cohen to decide whether to get a genetic test. The visit began with a thorough conversation with an excellent and personable genetic counselor, Tessa. Both Tessa and Dr. Cohen took time to ask important questions and explain what I might learn and what my options were. They explained things clearly. Great doctor, great team."
