About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

Our entire staff is firmly committed to a pressure-free experience that allows you ample time to talk with both the physician and staff. We want all of our patients to understand surgical recommendations, develop realistic expectations, and participate actively as an informed patient in determining which of the many cosmetically-enhancing options available are most appropriate for you. We encourage you to talk with other patients, ask extensive questions, and discuss your goals with us so that we can successfully partner with you to help you achieve the goals you desire.

We are convinced that the best doctor-patient relationships begin with trust and healthy two-way communication and then culminates with a natural result individualized for each patient’s specific needs.

We look forward to partnering with you along your quest for reconstructive surgery and/or cosmetic enhancement. Please do not hesitate to contact our office, via telephone or email, if we can assist you in any manner.

Your Consultation

Please plan to spend at least one hour in our office the day of your appointment. Our goal is to provide you the highest quality of surgical expertise.

What to Expect During the Consultation:
During your appointment, Dr. Cohn will review your cosmetic surgery goals and discuss the ways he can help you achieve these goals. Photos will be taken, and if appropriate we will use our software imaging system to give you a better idea of how surgery can help achieve your desired results.

After your appointment with Dr. Cohn, you will speak with Dr. Cohn’s Patient Coordinator. She will assist with the coordination of surgical logistics and discuss all fees associated with the procedures you and Dr. Cohn have identified to best help you achieve your desired results.
