Recently, a big financial change happened, I was struggling with buying my medications. I told first his nurse, she then discussed it with Dr.Cohen, he was very concerned and spent time with me trying to come up with a solution, which I think will work. They together give me hope for my future.

Honestly, I really can't think of anything negative about our experience while down there, with the exception of the aforementioned attendant. I have spoken very highly of our time in Utah and that is a very high compliment. Dr. Cohen truly made us feel important when he took the time to call personally to tell us the results of the pathology report. Quite exceptional.
