Talking about Leslie E. Cohen, M.D.

"I saw Dr. Cohen and she did the procedure where there was minimal pain and what it looks like so far is minimal scarring as well which I am very pleased about. The hospital is the best in NY so expect to be treated well and with a friendly surgical staff. Her office staff are really nice too. Wait times were excellent as well. Thanks for a great experience and job."
