The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Cohen.

“Had severe back pain due to disc herniation in my lower back couldn't walk or do much of anything for over three months. Dr. Cohen cleaned out the herniation and removed a bone spur that was on Jan. 11th. Feeling great now, I'm thrilled I had the procedure done. I feel great and am grateful for everything thanks so much!”

“I broke my leg at 10 PM on July 12th and taken to Monmouth Medical. X-rays were taken and confirmed it was a fractured femur. Dr. Cohen saw me very soon after the x-rays, and we discussed my options. It got decided the best course would be a partial hip replacement. Since I was on Plavix, it got done the next evening. I'm happy with the operation and care I received, as there was no pain at all in the hip and there hasn't been any since. Eight months, and I can walk without any support. Did I mention that I'm 75? I would recommend Dr. Cohen.”

“Dr. Cohen has done an excellent job for me. He got me scheduled for surgery when I desperately needed to get it done. I’m pleased with the results to this point. He made it very easy for me to understand what he was going to do and how it all worked out during surgery.”

“After several months of living with pain. After seeing a chiropractor, having physical therapy, and trying acupuncture, nothing was helping. I sought care from Dr. Cohen. I couldn't look up, down, or to the side. After MRI, Dr. Cohen determined I had three herniated discs, and I could try epidural shots, but that would only be a temporary band-aid. He recommended that I needed surgery to repair three discs in my neck. He would insert a plate and screws. He took the time along with Adrienne his nurse (which seems to be his right-hand person) to explain in detail what I would experience before, during, and after surgery. Dr. Cohen explained to my husband after surgery that he couldn't believe how much pain I was tolerating. I was bone on bone. After surgery, it was a rough week; each day got better. I'm here one year later, pain-free, complete range of motion, working out five times a week and feel great. I owe all of it to Dr. Cohen. I feel like he saved me.”

“I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. Cohen, Adrienne, and the whole staff. I walked in there the first time terrified and in a lot of pain. Dr. Cohen diagnosed my problem and explained why I needed neck surgery. He and Adrienne answered all my questions. The results after the operation were excellent and the follow-up care was great as well. I have been pain-free ever since.”

“Dr. Cohen is a very experienced and competent doctor. Above all, he has great compassion for his patients. Between my wife and myself, we have had five back surgeries by Dr. Cohen. I cannot even think of going anywhere else for back surgery if either one of us needs surgery again, and it will be by Dr. Cohen. If I have a question about my treatment, Dr. Cohen or one of his staff always gets back to me. Dr. Cohen says that my wife and I are now like family and he treats us like we are. He’s a great guy and doctor.”

Words cannot express how grateful I am to Dr. Jason Cohen. I was in excruciating back pain because of a herniated disc and very nervous about getting surgery. The only thing I could do without pain was lie flat or stand straight. Any sitting , bending, sneezing, etc was intense pain. Dr. Cohen got me in right away, his team got me an MRI that same day and he explained the procedure to me and told me that he could get me out of pain. I trusted him and his team and they did just that! In a very short time frame, I was back to paddleboarding, yardwork, yoga and beach volleyball. NO Restrictions!! I got my life back, pain free!! The other HUGE component was that his team verified my insurance for me (something you really don't feel like doing when you are in that much pain) and there was very little out of pocket expense! Life is too short to be in pain when you have a surgeon like Dr. Cohen around. He's the best!!! Feel so blessed. Thanks again Dr. Cohen!!!

“I underwent emergency lumbar spinal surgery, expertly and swiftly performed by Dr. Cohen within hours of meeting him to relieve crushed nerves as a result of a severely herniated disc. Some years later after developing symptoms that included severe pain down the back and front of both legs, Dr. Cohen performed a Transpsoas Interbody and Posterior Lumbar Fusion at L3-4, L4-5. I put my trust in Dr. Cohen and he saved me twice. During my hospital stays, Dr. Cohen visited me every day, not only to check on my condition but to comfort me and my family. God made a good man and fine surgeon when he made Jason Cohen.  I have been Dr. Cohen's patient for years now. He, his nurse Adrienne and the rest of his staff are kind, compassionate, dedicated, and very hard working. They are also excellence teachers. Dr. Cohen and Adrienne took the time to educate me and answer questions about my condition, the type of surgery I would receive, and the necessary post-surgical care to be administered.  There is no need to travel to New York or Pennsylvania in search of a spinal surgeon when we are fortunate enough to have the best spinal surgeon right in our own backyard.”

I have a one year update to share: After my multi-level, 3 disc fusion on Sept 21, 2015 and 12 weeks of rehab, I was out playing golf once again. When I went to see Dr. Cohen back in Sept 2015 I was convinced that golf was no longer in my vocabulary and regaining full use of my legs may not be possible. My spinal cord was pinched off so severely that my legs could not hold me up and walking was very limited. Since then I have continued to exercise and began playing competitive golf in February, just 5 months later. This past August, one year to the day that I was injured, I returned to Myrtle Beach to compete in the world's largest amateur golf tournament, where I withdrew just one year ago. This event is a grinding 4 day tournament against 3500 golfers from all over the world and I was elated that I won my flight every day for four days straight. Then the day before my 50th birthday, two days before the anniversary of my surgery, I won the Club Championship at the Golf Club of NJ and then again the Club Championship at Pine Barrens Golf Course. Two weeks after that, another win at Galloway Golf Club in a NJ State tournament. These are all events that took me 20 years to finally win and I did it at age 50; one year after a major, major back surgery. I am so very grateful to Dr. Cohen for giving me my life back and I can't thank him enough. He is a phenomenal surgeon. Don't settle for less.

“Searching for a great doctor and surgeon is one of the most important decisions you'll ever make in your life. I have been a patient of yours for over 15 years and not only do I feel part of a medical family, one you will never find anywhere else, but I am more comfortable in my life in your very capable hands. You are a surgeon like no other and someone who is overly compassionate, has the best bedside manner you will ever experience, and a level of care that gives you a level of calm like no other. I have had 3 operations, two cervical fusions and one back anterior/posterior fusion to date and couldn't be happier with the results. My life has been changing for the better and I can't even put into words how I feel about someone that has so much care, understanding, and patience into "fixing" my body to a point where the bionic woman couldn't even compare. You and your staff are people who not only make you feel like the most important person in the room, but also make sure you are comfortable and calm every step of the way. They should be highly commended for their efforts, hard work, and professionalism. I thank you again and again for everything you have done and continue to do for me. I have seen so much in the medical field that I am actually making a career change, when I get back to work, and taking my computer skills to the medical industry. Thank you again for everything you do!”

“I've been coming here for years and have had 3 spinal surgeries and 1 wrist (Dr. Gentile who is equally amazing). The front office staff is so friendly, supportive and helpful (in all offices). Treatment team (radiology, nurses and surgical coordinators) are so efficient. They treat you like you're a celebrity. Doctors are so approachable, friendly and of course professional and very talented. When I went for a second opinion at a major teaching hospital, they wouldn't touch my back, saying that they respected Dr. Cohen's technique and wouldn't do anything different.”

“This past February I started to develop pain in the back of my shoulder that just wouldn't go away. well, after several visits to the Chiropractor with no results and now numbness and pain setting in on my arm and fingers it was suggested that I might have a neck problem which was clearly evident in the MRI. I had a severe herniation of the disc between C6 and C7. After meeting with Dr. Cohen it became clear that the surgery was a real possibility to eliminate my chronic symptoms. we tried two epidural injections that unfortunately didn't work so surgery became the solution on July 15th. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. in the past, I've had a few minor orthopedic surgeries and never gave it a thought but when you're dealing with the spinal cord, neck and nerves, you start to think. Dr. Cohen took the time to explain the procedure in great detail with all the options available and after much consideration chose a procedure know as ACDF. I remember waking up in the recovery room after surgery completely pain free in my arm and hand with very little discomfort relating to the surgery. I was home within 24 hours and walking outside within a day, walking 4 miles per day within two weeks. I'm now going on my third week back to doing things I never thought would be possible so soon after surgery. I can thank Dr. Cohen and his staff for providing the best attention, care and treatment. It really made the difference and I will always be grateful to Dr. Cohen for his personal attention and outstanding bedside manner.”
