07/12/2016 in news
Tarrytown, NY, July 12th, 2016 –ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP (ENTA) prides itself on offering its 80,000 monthly ear, nose, throat, allergy and audiology patients the services of first rate quality physicians. And when it identifies a potential new addition with a proven track record of superb patient satisfaction and clinical success, we look to bring that physician into the ENTA family of practitioners.
That’s why the Practice-comprised of over 180 community physicians equipped with the most advanced training in the fields of otolaryngology, laryngology, neurotology, facial plastics, allergy and audiological care, serving communities through 40+ state-of-the-art clinical facilities throughout New York and New Jersey-today excitedly announced that Eric Cohen, MD will join ENTA as a partner in its West Side, Manhattan office, effective August 1st, 2016.
Dr. Cohen, a board certified otolaryngologist who has been in private practice on Manhattan’s upper west side for over 20 years, provides medical and surgical treatment for disorders of the ears, nose and throat to adult patients. Dr. Cohen also avails himself of the latest technology in the treatment of sinus and nasal condition, often through the use of minimally invasive techniques, with the emphasis on causing minimal disruption to patient lives. He also has similar expertise in the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea.
Eric Cohen graduated from the Johns Hopkins Medical School with Alpha Omega Alpha honors in 1991, and went on to complete his residency training in otolaryngology/head and neck surgery at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. In 1996 Dr. Cohen joined the Head and Neck Surgical Group, ultimately becoming the managing partner. He has also served as the Co-Director of the Sleep Disorders Center of the New York Head and Neck Institute, and as Medical Director of Cure Snoring.
At ENTA’s West Side office, he will serve patients alongside other gifted physicians including otolaryngologists Gary S. Fishman, MD, FACS; Natasha Keenan, MD; Hector P. Rodriguez, MD; Michael Shohet, MD, FACS; Tamekia Wakefield, MD; and allergist Carol G. Baum, MD, MBA, FACP, F.A.A.A.A.I.
Dr. Cohen’s arrival will coincide with another project that will enhance the patient experience. Specifically, ENTA is currently in the process of significantly enlarging and technologically updating its facilities in the neighborhood, and hopes to complete renovations at its existing medical office by September.
Michael Shohet, MD, a fellow partner at ENTA’s West Side office, noted, “Eric Cohen’s sterling reputation throughout our community is extremely well deserved, and his many areas of clinical expertise add to and align perfectly with what we offer-superior medical care one patient at a time. I am certain he is going to be a great fit.”
Robert Green, MD and President of ENTA, added “Our Practice is only as good as the physicians who populate it, so we are constantly striving to remain at the leading edge of patient healthcare delivery. Having a talented and experienced physician like Eric Cohen become a colleague is exactly in line with that objective. We heartily welcome him on board, and so will our patients.”
Robert Glazer, CEO of ENT and Allergy Associates added, “We see continued expansion of ENTA. As we plan for 2017/2018, our new offices have been configured to enable the group to merge in or recruit the high quality physicians that our patients require.”
