David Cohen, MD

Dr. Cohen grew up in New Jersey and received his undergraduate degree from Wesleyan University and his medical degree from the Columbia University - College of Physicians and Surgeons. This was followed by an internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan and then a fellowship in Cardiology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. After another fellowship in interventional cardiology at the Westchester Medical Center he practiced for 20 years as an interventional cardiologist in New Jersey, later becoming an early pioneer in the interventional treatment of peripheral vascular diseases. In 2004 he added vein disease management to his practice and a few years later happily decided to commit his entire practice to vein disease treatment and never looked back.

He is board-certified in both Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease, and he is a Diplomate of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine.
