For some a career choice might appear to be an easy decision when a family business is there to be passed down through the generations. Dr.
Cohen planned to work for the family business, but at the age of sixteen, a dramatic experience changed his vision for his future. In a cold, matter-of-fact manner, a doctor had explained to the family, Dr. Cohen’s father, had only a few months to live. Not accepting that prognosis, a second doctor was found, one who gave the family hope. It was that doctor who inspired Dr. Cohen, already a student of the sciences with a great love for biology, to decide to attend medical school.

“I knew I wanted to be someone who could inspire hope in others; Dr. Cohen recalls, and to help people in a way that only a physician could. That experience with my father, who is doing quite well by the way, taught me that the practice of medicine is so much more than knowledge and skill; being compassionate about people is important too.”

Dr. Cohen believes that his broad view of ophthalmology makes him uniquely qualified as a surgeon. Not only does he bring all those skills to surgery, he can serve his patients for multiple needs during their lifetime.

“I feel blessed, Dr. Cohen says, because I love my work. I hope to see patients until the day I can’t operate anymore. Ophthalmology truly is my passion Dr. Cohen’s family values have a direct effect on his practice of medicine. Before I agree to perform any surgery on one of my patients, I first ask myself if I would do the same thing for my mother. “
