I had the pleasure of photographing Dr. Leslie Cohen. She is a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon. It was a small world moment when we started talking and sharing where we had been. I have more than 20 years of healthcare experience and our paths crossed unknowingly when we both worked at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Michigan. I was involved with the Josephine Ford Cancer Center and she worked with the Breast Cancer Clinic when patients needed reconstructive surgery. 

We connected formally last spring after our mutual friend Holly Markhoff introduced us. Dr. Cohen is unlike any doctor I’ve ever met. Of course, she is all about excellence and she really listens to her patients! So much so that it is no surprise when reading her bio below that she won “Best Beside Manner” three years in a row. There is no ego detected in her mannerism…just a gentle, kind manner used to serve her patients wisely. 

If you would like to make an appointment with Dr. Cohen she is at 7110 Forest Avenue, Suite 101 Richmond, VA 23226 and her phone number is 804-288-2800; Website: www.LeslieCohenMD.com. Dr. Cohen has great skin care products, procedures and reconstructive options customized to your needs.

Dr. Cohen introduced me in her Confidence Corner.

With all of the accomplishments in her field and extensive surgical experience, a recent Award which may describe Dr. Cohen best was her Award for Best Bedside manner, Our Health, Richmond, VA for 2013 and 2014, and again for 2015.  With Dr. Cohen every patient is a priority and every procedure an endeavor in medical excellence and artistry.
