My experience with Drs J. Cohen & R. Rosenstock (they work as a team) were positive. They are very knowledgeable about their practice and very competent plastic surgeons. Dr. Cohen does not babysit his patients. He was very informative and knew exactly what I expected and was able to explain things in a way I understood and felt comfortable with. I think Americans are used to being hand held, what I mean is that many don't bother to do research before having a procedure done because of this you won't know what to expect or how to identify if something is wrong. These surgeons should not be expected to have a two hour consult, as some of the research responsibility falls to us as the patient and understanding how to read our bodies. We expect the results now, verses having to go through the "ugly" stage. I read all the time about how "depressed" people get after surgery...but what do you expect. Its plastic surgery! You've taken something you were born with and permenantly changed it into something else.

Overall my experience was an 8 out of 10. Thanks Drs Cohen and Rosenstock.
