We went in for a sick visit.. the doctor was very thorough in looking into my sons illness and made me feel comfortable because he had explained things to me to ease my mind. He's an asset to the practice.
Dr. Coen Ostend carefully to our concerns and put an action plan into place for our son's reflux. He is always reassuring and it's nice to meet with a doctor who ends the appointment by telling us to call and let him know how things are going. it shows a high level of care and concern.
We love Dr. Cohen. He always takes time to answer any questions. He spends a lot of time talking to the child and really getting to know her. He is the only doctor my children want to see for a well or sick visits.
Dr. Cohen is the absolute best! we all look forward to seeing him once a year!

Best possible service by provider
Dr. Cohen is an amazing pediatrician. he connects with my children, makes them feel comfortable, laughs at their terrible jokes, and always remembers to tell me I'm doing a great job (my favorite part of the visit haha). Your office is lucky to have him.
Love Dr. Cohen - even tho we were not in the last 3m for issues during the last 6m we were. My daughter choked, and we went thru months of her not eating, losing weight, getting different opinions & increasing anxiety about eating. Dr Cohen sent us for tests that helped settle her issues had become more psychological- and we able to move past this horrible fear. She is now eating healthy and gaining weight again!
Dr. Cohen sees both of my children and he is personable and makes them feel comfortable.
Love Dr. Cohen! Great with parents and kids!
Dr. Cohen is by far the best doctor I have ever encountered. He is extremely knowledgeable and speaks to you in a way you fully understand. I amso thankful to have his care for my son.
always love Dr. Cohen. He listens to all concerns and takes the serious.
We feel Dr. Cohen is the best for our child's care. He is always opened, honest and listens to any questions we have about our child.
Provider spoke to husband/father during the entire visit instead of the mother/me. Husband/father was preoccupied with other child during the appointment so this seemed odd.
We love Dr. Cohen and feel very happy with the care he has provided
Dr. Cohen was Very sweet and thorough. He calmed our fears as we were afraid of a lump that we found on my sons neck . we also had a concern and some questions about the sons growth and he went through his groove thoroughly. I felt very good leaving there. He is an excellent pediatrician !
We are so grateful for Dr. Cohen's expertise and wonderful care.
love Dr Cohen
Dr. Cohen asked me to explain how I injured my toe 3 times. I'm not sure why he did so. he sent me for xrays to see if it was broken, which it is. he put me in a boot which really hurts my toe much more than a regular shoe.
the staff in general were polite and treated us well. the provider listened and interacted with my child
cohan is amazing with my kids!

Dr. Cohen is amazing. We absolutely love seeing him and are happy he is with our local CCP office. He makes me feel at ease with everything when it comes to being a first time parent. He takes the time needed to evaluate my child while also taking time to check-in with myself and my husband as well.
Nice and very knowledgeable.
My son is a teen, and the doctor spoke to him instead of just me, and made sure that he also understood everything. He asked questions in a way to get better answers tha I had, and he respected privacy by asking me to leave the room a few times so my son could talk freely. I felt the entire visit was handled well.
Dr. Cohen makes us so comfortable and answers all my questions. We are so glad he is our Doctor.
Excellent bed side manner.
Dr Cohen was extremely helpful in servicing our child's needs and elevating our concerns. I would highly recommend him to friends and family!
We left after tests with no plan of action. After tests came back there was still not plan relayed to us. Seemed like a lot of panic for things that would not change anything. I am glad they were through. However I would have liked someone to outline to me the things I could have been doing at home to care for her better though the illness.
Dr Cohen is an excellent physician. He makes my son feel very comfortable & Dr Cohen addresses all of our concerns. He's very caring & sincere.

first visit and a very good one. everyone was very kind and helpful. doctor was amazing
Dr. Cohen has been my children's physician since they were born. He is very attentive, caring and progression. My kids love Dr. Cohen and look forward to every visit with him.
I don't think in the past 13 years have we seen Dr. Cohen. He's cut from an excellent cloth. Dr. Diamond would be the only comparable doctor in the practice. I do wish we would have met and been seen by Dr. Cohen much sooner in my son's life and continually throughout. I know now, when I can request a doctor, it will be Dr. Cohen. Glorious bedside manner, very likeable and knowledgeable!
excellent doctor and we were very happy with his demeanor and explanation of what was going on
Dr. Cohen was very personable and took his time with my daughter and went an extra step to make sure she was given the best care during her office visit. He even entertained her while waiting for her office results. He explained everything to her and I.
Dr. Cohen always takes the time to listen. Never have I ever felt rushed in the exam room to be done. He always takes the time to hear any of your concerns or uestions. I have never had another doctor that stopped to take the time to pick up my child's pacifier and leave the room for over a minute to go and wash it off for my child. He is what I wish every doctor would be like- caring, compassionate and understanding.
very good experience
