I am sure you receive notes like mine constantly. I had to tell you how very, very grateful I am that I was so lucky to find you and all I can say is “Thank You”. It really doesn’t express my gratitude for putting my wrist back together. I have dealt with many physicians due to two back surgeries, and they were not good experiences.

Again, thank you, thank you so very, very much for your care.

Professional drummer Mike Hansen had the following to say about Dr. Cohen:
As a national-act drummer my hands are my tools. I have known Dr. Cohen for over a decade. One day I showed Dr. Cohen I was having a problem with my left hand, he suggested I meet with him for a consultation at his practice -- so I did. What I ended up having was what they call Dupuytren nodules, which were forming on the second knuckles on my left hand -- pretty painful and constricting. I was so scared at first when he told me I needed surgery, but Dr. Cohen assured me that I would be ok. I thought it was going to affect my career -- and it did -- in a positive way. I listened to his post-op instructions and went to therapy, but he wanted me to be careful for approximately three weeks, but let me tell you! I was up and drumming on a national level within two weeks and my hand is working better then ever with no more pain!
Thank you Dr. Glenn Cohen,
(To view Mike performing after his surgery, click here.)
Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of my son Forest. He adores you and has been feeling so much better since his procedure with you. He speaks so highly about you, and I'm so grateful for your expertise and kindness. The other doctor was horrible on so many levels, talent and bedside manner both lacking. Forest has been singing your praises for days. I'm sure he will drum up some patients for you. You sound so amazing I wish I had something wrong so I could have you as a doctor as well.
Thank you again,
Dr. Cohen and Stacey,
I hope this message finds you both doing well and enjoying the holiday season! It has been at least a few years since my wrist surgery and I still can't help but remember how wonderful your office was, how successfully the surgery and recovery went and how much I actually enjoyed coming in for office visits. Who actually looks forward to doctors' appointments?! It is a truly special office with an incredible team.
I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the wrist resulting from scapho-lunate advanced collapse. My Orange County hand-and-wrist surgeon told me that there were surgical options, but they were aggressive and not always successful. He recommended that I "live with" my painful and debilitating condition, offering no other options. Dr. Cohen discussed all my options with me. He explained that he could do the "big surgery," but my X-rays indicated that a more conservative approach should be considered first. He explained that a nerve resection wouldn't repair my joint; but it might alleviate pain sufficiently to allow me to regain use of my wrist and hand. He tested me by doing a nerve block, which immediately stopped the pain, indicating I was a good candidate for the procedure. The procedure worked out better than I had hoped--six weeks after surgery, my range of motion has been restored 75%; my hand strength has improved; and I've been able to resume my normal day-to-day activities pain-free. Dr. Cohen is technically excellent and very well-informed. He listened to me; understood my concerns and objectives; and discussed all my options with me. His advice was well-reasoned and conservative. His knowledge, concern and commitment extended far beyond the surgical procedure. He is knowledgeable and instructive about post-operative therapy, joint care, and even nutritional supplements. Dr. Cohen is a brilliant surgeon who cares passionately about his patients.

Always fearing the worst, but never getting a conclusive answer, she decided to see Dr. Cohen for a second opinion. Listen to her interesting story below:

The front office staff was expecting me, spoke to me by name and offered me minimal paperwork. Very streamlined process. Dr. Cohen examines me, takes the X-rays himself, explaining details to me extensively .... go to the cast room. Taylor, best caster ever! Dr. Cohen comes in between other patients and chats with all the patients. He has the most amazing bed side manner. Really connects with his patients. All the patients in the room talk about him as he leaves – "He is awesome," we all say.
I chose Dr. Cohen based on reviews and I am happy I did. He did a fantastic job and I have use of my hand again which I never thought I would. I hesitated for a long time to get the surgery but I'm so glad I did. The recovery from a resection arthroplasty is supposed to be very painful but mine was not. I think this is probably because he did such a good job. When I went to hand therapy (3 different places) they all had only the highest praise for Dr. Cohen. I guess he is simply the best. The office and staff are also very nice and I never waited even 5 minutes for my appointment. I don't trust most doctors but I trust him now.
Our entire family has been treated for multiple fractures by Dr. Glenn Cohen. From the moment you arrive at his office, you are greeted and cared for by an incredible staff. As for Dr. Cohen, he is by far the best doctor we have ever seen in general! Thoughtful, unrushed, knowledgeable, and always holds the patients best interest in hand.

I came all the way from Shanghai, China to see Dr. Cohen and his staff. After consulting with 4 different surgeons (3 in China and 1 in CA), Dr. Cohen offered the best option for what I was seeking. I couldn't be more satisfied.
Dear Dr. Cohen,
Thank you for taking care of me while my finger was broken! You are the best hand doctor ever! Hopefully I will see you again, and soon.

When your child, or someone in your family, has a fall or an injury, and it involves the hands or arms, you really get a fast education in how much this can affect how you function day to day (writing, getting dressed, eating!). The options for care overwhelming, everyone claiming 'we do it best'. When you come to Dr. Glenn Cohen for help, you will find from the moment you walk in the door, their main priority is taking care of you, the patient and all those who need help and assistance getting through the injury. It's a family affair. The entire team is extremely knowledgeable and truly the experts in how these injuries can affect things like growth plates in young kids or long term affects in adults. They take that expertise and translate it into options so that as a patient or parent, you know you are making the best decision and taking the best steps for your situation. On top of that, they are empathetic, patient and kind. We have now been there twice, once for an adult scaphoid injury and right now for my 8 year old boy (who fell out of a tree and broke his wrist). They turned my mom-anxiety into calm, informed path to healing and my son's hysterical tears into 'everything is going to be ok', offering not just incredible care, but bedside manner and 'the little things' like a bear stuffie with a matching cast to ease his fear and anxiety. My advice to anyone needing attention with any injury (and they are elbow down specialists!!), put them in your phone and add them to your 'favorites' so if you ever need to see someone, you have the best at your fingertips and can take care of your family right away vs having to plow through referrals or google-results. Dr. Glenn D Cohen and Meridian Hand Therapy. Truly, they have your best interests at heart and you are in the best hands possible.
Dr Cohen is just simply the best hand doctor and surgeon around. We are fortunate to have him in town. A few years ago a friend called me when his son injured his hand . He asked me if I knew a good hand doctor. Referred him to Dr Cohen. He still thanks me... Dr Cohen is honest about choices with care. Think about your hands ! They are everything. Driving writing typing and all. Put your hands in the very best hand surgeon's hands.
Dr. Cohen rocks! He just performed surgery on our 16 year old son last Monday. We have seen other doctors for our son's fracture over several months and we are finally in great hands. Dr. Cohen guided us through a stressful and confusing situation with compassion, professionalism and great care. Our son is finally on the path to recovery.
We got the 100% healed news last Thursday; not sure if Kyle, me or Dr. Cohen was more excited! He is a miracle worker and you can be sure I’ll do my best to spread that around town. When I get a minute, I’ll post something on Facebook as well. Please extend my sincere appreciation to Dr. Cohen and Jo for a job amazingly well done! I know great customer service and skill when I see it. Your office and Dr. Cohen are the BEST! Kathy (Kyle’s mom)
Five star service. Everyone was spot on. Love Dr. Cohen. Back to playing tennis. Yay!

Hear about what she describes as her "amazing experience" with Dr. Cohen:
Carl from Oak Park had surgery for Dupuytren's twelve years ago, but needed a second surgery. He had Dr. Cohen perform the second surgery and says "he did an amazing job, I highly recommend him." He was particularly pleased with how straight Dr. Cohen was able to get his finger, and feels that Dr. Cohen is "very modern in his techniques and thinking." Hear his story:
What this man has done for me can only be described as Life Saving. I was 17 and had a bad motorcycle accident. My wrist was completely shattered. At the time I was boxing and that was my #1 passion. After crashing and seeing my wrist I thought my boxing career was over before it started. I had gone to 5 different doctors that all told me the same thing... "thats a surgical break and I can't touch it". After 17 hours of searching and waiting I was told Dr. Cohen was the man for the job. (He was already working on another surgery before me). As soon as I met him I felt at ease... however he did tell me it was the worst wrist injury he had seen (Year was 2002). He rebuilt my hand with precision and I was fully healed within 6 months. Now 16 years later I am a boxing instructor and have been so for almost 10 years. All I can say is if you need the best of the best to fix your hand or wrist there is absolutely no one better than Dr. Cohen. Thank you Dr. Cohen from the bottom of my heart. In many ways you've saved my life.
