I’m spoiled rotten and it is Dr. Gary Cohan’s fault. This has been going on for over 17 years. It began when Dr. Cohan was with Pacific Oaks Medical Group, and has only gotten better since he opened his own practice and our partnership has grown.
Imagine a doctor that is on time, greets you with a smile and hug, is genuinely interested in your physical, mental and personal well-being, and is one of the most knowledgeable, up-to-date and empathetic medical professionals you will ever encounter. A doctor that knows how to listen and knows exactly what to say, and has a “bedside manner” that is second to none.
Imagine your appointment ending as you sit comfortably with the doctor in his office, rather than awkwardly on the examining table.
Imagine a doctor that is accessible by telephone call and email, promptly returning both. A doctor that doesn’t rush through an office visit, answers all of your questions, and provides and explains lab and test results promptly. A doctor that is open-minded and willing to embrace a combination of traditional Western medicine with select alternative treatments.
And I must mention Mary and Marien, Dr. Cohan’s office staff. They are friendly, competent, courteous, and handle all insurance paperwork. And they smile.
I could go on and on. I now spend most of my time on the East Coast and plan my check-ups and physicals around frequent trips back to Los Angeles. And I look forward to every one of them.
