Michael S. Cohn, MD, FACS

Dr Michael S Cohn

General and Vascular Surgery

“We have the best of both worlds—a very sophisticated surgical practice in a community setting. We give individual attention to patients in a kind and caring way, taking care of their problems. In addition to our extensive experience, the kindness part is very important to me, too.”
