*Dr. Cohen has made himself available 24/7, returning nighttime pages quickly, responding to email, and giving quality care during clinic visits. Affable and professional, he's given sound advice that has benefited my child's health in every way. When we thanked him he humbly credited the nurses and pediatric diabetes team for his effectiveness and efficiency. God bless him and the KP diabetes team! Our child is healthy and happy thanks to their effort. sincerely, [name]

Dr. Cohen is by far the best pediatrician at Kaise Permanente. He has taken care of all for of my children, including one who is severely disabled, as his own. We now have a new addition (grandson) to our family and we are glad to have Dr. Cohen care for him as well. Dr. Cohen has shown genuine concern and compassion towards the different events that have occurred with my children. He is very personable and we see him as an extension of our family. We are honored to have him be a part of our very personal lives and you should be proud that Dr. Cohen represents the very key characteristics of Kaiser Permanente - to provide high quality care and service.

After two ER visits and no answer as to what was making my son sick, *Dr. Cohen solved the mystery on our first visit. *Dr. Cohen is literally the reason we want to stay with Kaiser. He is an amazing pediatrician! We love him and are so thankful for his excellent care.

I am a native of Chicago, Illinois. I worked in Hawaii for the United States Public Health Service prior to my residency in pediatrics at Oregon Health & Science University. I practice primary care outpatient pediatrics and hospital-based medicine. I worked to establish our cystic fibrosis care center and was the director of that program for many years. I am also one of a handful of Kaiser Permanente physicians who specialize in diabetes care. When I leave work, my "work" often begins with twin teenage boys. In addition to family, my interests include hiking and camping, singing, playing piano, dancing Salsa, learning Spanish, and staying active. I have an infant granddaughter whom I cherish.

About my practice

Kaiser Permanente gives me the opportunity to pursue a variety of aspects of pediatric and adolescent care in both specialty and primary care. I love my patients and am available at a moment's notice for those with acute and complex medical issues. I particularly enjoy interacting on a personal and informal level with my patients and their families.

How I thrive

Staying active and fit is my highest priority. I am very involved in the activities of my twin boys. I have a wonderful wife who, in addition to being a great math tutor to the boys, keeps me centered.
