Unparalleled Care, Unmatched Expertise
From the moment a patient walks in the door, they will understand the core beliefs of Cohen/Winters. The highest level of surgical skill combined with state-of-the-art technology can still be warm. Honest, firm and expert advice can still be compassionate and caring. Cohen/Winters believes that doctors can be assured and decisive without being intimidating.
Whether a patient is considering an aesthetic procedure or are in need of reconstructive surgery, they will want to feel secure that they are making the right decision about the procedure and their choice of surgeon. That patient wants to be thoroughly informed and understand the options. Dr. Cohen and Dr. Winters have always believed, and their experiences have made it their conviction, that psychological and intellectual preparation, coupled with collaboration, will enhance the results and experience.
