Run don't walk from this doctor. I have never written a negative review of a doctor before. I am a nurse & understand the workings of medical care. I have never in my 63 years been treated so poorly. It has been 2 months since I had the procedures. I previously had fillers & botox at another dr. office, so am familiar with it. Previously I had spoken with a different doctor about tear trough filler but was told it could be tricky. So I wanted to discuss the procedure. I also wanted botox in forehead & filler in marionette lines.
Dr. Cohen came in the room, looked at my chart & said "oh u want botox". I explained the other concerns I had. He spoke rudely to me every time I asked a question. He knew I was a nurse. Before I could confirm what we were going to do, he roughly slapped some numbing creme on my face & left. He came back & started injecting botox, then filler. He never looked at my face from the front, only stood on the side. Put filler in but never checked how it looked. Was very rough & told me I was "tough". He then started injecting beneath my eyes. I assumed this was the filler I talked about. He told me it was PDO threads. I did not know anything about this! I had no idea what this was! He said this is what he likes to use. It was painful. I was in shock that he was doing this.
He said the one side was bleeding & would be a shiner. Gave me some gauze & ice & left room. No discharge instructions. Came back awhile later & peaked in room from doorway. Said use some echinacea if it bruises too badly. Never checked how anything looked.
The entire procedure was so rushed & rough. Total time form the time I entered the procedure room until I was back in my car was 25 miuites including waiting at the desk to pay.
My right eye bruised very badly & was very sore. I had to research the threads for follow up instructions. It took 7 weeks for swelling & bruising to go down.The bruising was so severe that it could not be covered with heavy concealer. It has been 2 months & my right eye still has a pocket of fluid underneath. I see no results from the filler.
It was the worst experience I have had with a physician. DO NOT allow him to do this to you. There are so many better doctors.
