In his spare time, Dr. Cohen enjoys all forms of outdoor activity throughout the year.  He likes to hike, fish, ski, and garden.  “Ask me and I will show you pictures of my vegetable garden,” says Dr. Cohen. In his office waiting room, patients can see Dr. Cohen’s photographs taken in the Galapagos Islands and other beautiful locations. He enjoys learning and visiting other cultures, such as China, and taking in the beauty and wonder of the world, as he did on African Safari.  For adventure, Dr.Cohen has white water rafted down the Grand Canyon, took an RV trip through the Canadian Rockies, and piloted a barge down the Erie Canal.  Although all this beauty and excitement exist worldwide, Dr. Cohen will be the first to confide that the beauty in Rockland County, and our surrounding areas can truly hold their own.
