What Our Patients Are Saying


Lily M.

Called to inquire about a routine exam. I was able to get in same day with my VSP insurance. My exam was thorough. I was able to order my new glasses at the same time. The office staff was very professional and very friendly. I was impressed as a first time patient.

Katherine H.

I’ve been a patient of Dr Cohn’s for at least 30 years and always get excellent advice and service at his office. I have had cataract surgery for both eyes recently which went very smoothly.


Timely, comprehensive vision exam! Doctor explained results well and provided good guidance.
