The doctor is great. The office staff sucks. They need to be retrain in customer service because they do not know how to handle an office. Their scheduling sucks they are sorry at their jobs. They schedule appoints and then you have to wait for over 45 minutes at least they could come and inform you on the situation and then it may not be so bad instead of sitting at their desk and flapping their lips. They charge me for coming late or missing an appointment, but I get nothing for waiting over 45 minutes for the doctor. They will never see me again.

I have taken my son for the past year to numerous doctors and due to alot of difficulties he been to many doctors which in turn has made him very nerous to visit any doctor office. I finally found a good doctor who had patience with my little one and tried his best to communicate with him. He was very polite and seemed very concern for his patients. I have continued taking no both my childern to him even after my insurance isnt accepted at his office. As for the office and staff some can be alittle rude and I wish the seating area was divided into sick and well.

I was very pleased with Texas Children's Katy office. I did not have to wait, and the staff was friendly. They got me in the day of, as a new patient, which I was grateful for, others in the area would not or were not accepting new patients. Dr. Gonzales was very pleasant, and patient. He is on the younger side, but not too young; my last Dr. was WAY too old and would forget their names, that they were girls, etc. He spent time and was thorough; he did a culture to make sure she did not have the flu (swine flu time), even though he felt she was fine. I have 2 year old twin girls that HATE going to the Dr. and he handled it well.

It has been months since the last post on Dr Cohen. Please does anyone know how he is? He is the best pediatrician we have had the pleasure of knowing. He talked to my son on his level and made me feel comfortable with his diagnosis, which I may add, was always right! Dr Cohen we love and miss you!!!!

I just read the reason why Dr. Cohen is not coming back and I am in shock. It was so hard to find a new pediatrician for my kids when we moved to Katy and we were so so happy with Dr. Cohen... I can't believe it!!! My children are missing him a lot and we'll be praying for him every day now. We hope he gets better... miracles do happens :)

I've wondered what had happened, and hoped he would be back soon. I'm so sad to hear about this and wonder how you found out about him! My two sons only had Dr. Cohen as their doctor. I had hoped they'd be able to grow older with him as their doctor. Treasure each day with the ones you love. I wish Tx. Children's could be honest with us... and now that we have to find new doctors, they're telling me some aren't even accepting new patients, which irritates me!

No words can express how sad I am that Dr Cohen is having a hard time. He was the best pediatrician that we ever had the pleasure of having! My middle son has autism, and we had really been disgruntled with the medical profession, since no pediatrician seemed to even notice that my child had lost words, eye contact, response to his name, etc... when he was 18 months. I literally stumbled across TCH Katy, and walked in and asked who was the best dr with autism, and they made an appt for my child with Dr Cohen. Honestly, I told him that I could take or leave him because I was basically "interviewing" dr's bc I was so put off with dr's. He was so great and understanding, and wonderful with my little 2 year old, who is now 6. I also have 2 other children... a little baby, who has only known Dr Cohen... No other dr has cared for her, and now we need to change... it is heartbreaking. Not for us even, but for him. I feel so sad that he has lost so much, if what has been said is true. Anyway, sorry to go on and on, but I wanted to thank you other concerned parents for voicing your dislike of the way TCH Katy has handled this! It is so amazing that the dr's tell me that "Dr Cohen is doing very very well!" Like they don't want to lose my "business" and they have been coached to lie to us.
We are devastated for this huge loss.

I was sad when I received the letter stating he was not returning to clinic. He is the best doctor my kids enjoyed going to the appts.
Its very hard to find a good doctor and one that your kids enjoy.
I sitting here @ work just very shocked of what i read from the last review of what happened to him. Everybody should stop, and think of how fast your life can change. Appreciate what you have and enjoy life. My prayers will be with him. Dr.Cohen you will be missed.

Thanks

Upon hearing that Dr. Cohen was ill and getting the letter in the mail I have been so worried about him. My 2 sons have gone to him for years and we LOVE Dr. Cohen, he is like family, and he treated us that way. I have heard conflicting reports from people and it made me upset that the office staff would not tell us what happened to him. Today I actually heard what happened and thought I would share, because like some of you have said, it's hard to pray and process when you don't know what's wrong. This is as close to what happened as I know. He was having blurred vision and some medical problems and the eye doctor saw him and told him to immediately go get an MRI. They saw brain swelling and then that night he suffered a massive stroke (possible an aneurism?) and is now a vegetable. I was speechless when I heard and have been devastated all day because I had the hope that one day he would be better and would be returning. I understand his name has been removed from the door and they have now gotten a replacement doctor. A terrible tragedy!!

I have been so upset ever since finding out Dr. Cohen was sick, and I kept hoping he would return. I wish there was some way to let him know how much he means to my 3 children, Chloe, Sophia, and Dylan. It is hard to find a doctor you like and trust with your children. We trusted him completely, and it is devastating to hear he will never practice again! Does anyone know what has happened to him and if he will recover from this? I hope he knows how much he touched our lives and how much he is missed. We went to a new doctor at the Cinco Ranch office today, and Dylan and I were both so sad about it not being Dr. Cohen. I don't think we will find anyone who can compare. Our prayers and thoughts are with him!
Please get well!

I was trying to find out why Dr Cohen was not taking his patients and stumbled onto this website...I am very sad to learn that Dr Cohen has some sort of illness. My boys have grown up with him and we love him dearly! They like going to the Dr's office because of Dr Cohen! He is the reason I have continued to take my kids to that office. The staff is not always friendly..even rude at times. I will pray for a speedy recovery! Dr Cohen is the best pediatrician handsdown! God Bless Dr Cohen.

We are sad to hear about Dr. Cohen's condition. I was reffered to him by another doctor. One night I had to take my 2 year old to ER and I asked the doctor at ER if she knew a good doctor in Katy. She gave me Dr. Cohen's number and since then both of my boys have been in his care. He always been very special, my boys will be laughing and giggling instead of crying when it was time to see the doctor. Now my boys are 9 Jason and 13 Steven. We missed him this year when was time for their yearly check up. We love him and pray he will gets better and return soon. The Canales' Family

I have such a heavy heart about Dr. Cohen's illness. So, I decided to share hear.Everything good that you've read here is true. I came to Dr. Cohen shortly after he joined KP, and inf fact, all of what is being said is a gross understatement. My children are now 13 and 15 and I still continued to take them to him, because he was so proficient at what he did. And the rapport with the children was phenomenal. I am just devastated. Dr. Cohen always asked about the children's grades and I was so excited for my oldest to tell him how wonderful her grades are since starting HS. I do not have any information about the nature of his illness. I take some comfort in the miraculous recovery of Lance Armstrong. And, I know that Dr. Cohen was quite an athlete when he was younger. So, I'm praying. I'm praying.

I'm sorry that they haven't let yall know that Dr. Cohen's medical issue is extremely serious and he will probably never practice again because of it. I will continue to pray for him and you all should also. He's the best. I used to work there and I assumed you parents were at least told that it is his health that is preventing him from practicing, so that you parent's don't think he just deserted you. I assure he did not. If he could he would practice medicine. I will keep his privacy as I'm sure he would want, but I just had to let yall know at least that much.

Also, I know the wait is extreme (first hand), but I assure you that all of the physicians there are the best! I hear they have rules now preventing you from switching Dr.'s, but if you have a bad experience with one of them. Try to change to a different Dr. if possible and I bet you will be pleased!

It saddens me to find out that Dr. Cohen is not doing well. Of course do to privacy, the office will not tell me anything. He has been part of our family for years seeing my two children. They love him dearly. He has always made their visits enjoyable. He will be in our prayers. Whatever your situation is, we hope for and pray for a full recovery.

Well, this is the second time I call to make an appointment for my son to see Dr.Cohen, and they're still telling me that he is on leave. I had the feelings that he's not with katy pediatrics any more because the operator was asking me if I knew the name of the Dr. I wanted to transfer my son to. but I don't want another Dr., we were very pleased with Dr. Cohen. He was so great. You could feel that he really cared about his little patients. so Dr. Cohen, if you read this let us know where you are. If you are on leave for health or family reasons we wish you all the best.

We saw Dr. Cohen just before he took his leave. He was very private about it and told us he was planning on taking a personal leave for a while and he would miss seeing our son on his 18 month check up.

The last time i asked for him, the nurse said he was still on "medical leave."

He said he would be back ... so we are saying our prayers for him whether it be a sick family member or him. He cares about our children and I am certain of that and would be here if he could.

We may not know what we are exactly to pray, but God already knows his needs.

i am less than pleased with the way texas pediatrics has explained away dr. cohen. when a parent puts the trust in a dr., they become family. not just anyone can get that close to your child and not be cared about. i do understand that some things should be private, but we love him and would like to understand what he is going through when we say prayers for him. has anyone heard what is going on with him to cause him to leave his practice. linda

I was just googleing their website because I keep calling and the line is busy...Ran across this website...this is great information to learn. It's nice to know we weren't the only ones waiting hours at a time EVERYTIME to see Dr. Brown...and then finally seeing her and she like, eee...She doesn't even act like she likes kids...go figure...my husband's been taking our son lately, and he's fed up with the ignorant staff and the waiting, like we are walkins...these are scheduled appointments...but if we're late to the appointment forget it!!! I'm going to check out inderpages to find a better Dr.
Thanks!!

We have seen Dr. Cohen (great doctor) Shah & Wexler. Today I have decided to take my business elsewhere after 8 years of going there. Dr. Shah is nsaty at times. She sends us for tests all of the time, never moving forward, never medically clearing my child.... just more test. I racked up over $500.00 in test co-pays last year alone. She sent us to a specialist last week. then this week comes up with YET another test... could have been done last week at the specialist, but NO she must think I live to sit in waiting rooms. There is a basic lack of respect for other peoples time. Today I argued as to why they only want to send us to Texas Childrens for tests when the local hospitals can run them. They simply said that is who they are affiliated with. It is my choice where I take my kids, not theirs.

They have changed so much in the last few years.... Makes me sad to no longer have that constant for my kids.

My son is 8 wks old, and I got very lucky when I chose his pediatrician from my insurance list. Dr. Cohen has a great bedside manner, very personable, and he seems to genuinely care about his patients. I did a belated background search on him, and have read only great reviews, and found out he graduated from Emory Med School, which is a great university. My husband and mother have met him, too, and they also liked him. I've been to the office four times, and the longest I've had to wait is 10 minutes. My only complaint is that the waiting room isn't divided into "sick" and "well" areas.

Dr. Wexler was mine as well as my little sisters doc. I now have a daughter of my own and I really appreciate his wonderful bedside manner! He is really warm and caring towards the kids and always goes above and beyond to answer any questions that I have and explain any issues. Since my mom is an RN I have to write about the nurses and medical assistants also. They are great and have been very professional. Dr. Wexler has always been on time for the appts. which I appreciate. The office is also open on Saturdays which was very helpful when my daughter came down with RSV. We saw Dr. Haney on a Saturday morning and found her to be just as wonderful!

My oldest son has been a patient of Dr. Clarke's for about two years now and my youngest son since birth. In the past 8 months or so this pediatric office has gone from bad to worse! I call to get an appointment and am told to take them to the ER no matter what the symptom. They treat me as if I am stuipid and don't know what is going on with my child and are RUDE! When I call a doctor it is because something serious is going on with my child, I am already under stress, I do not need to deal with RUDE, IGNORANT people! It is so unfortunate that such a FABULOUS doctor is loosing our business because of his staff. We have loved Dr. Clarke from day one, he is thorough, kind and great with kids! I wish he would move to a new practice so we could follow him!

It is so unfortunate that such a FABULOUS doctor is loosing our business because of his staff. We have loved Dr. Clarke from day one, he is thorough, kind and great with kids! I wish he would move to a new practice so we could follow him!

I am a new mother and have been to see Dr Shah on 3 occassions. Teh average wait time is 1 hour. For those who are trying to breastfeed their newborns, you will understand that this wait time is too long and your child will wake up hungry. My last appointment was a weigh in only and after an hours wait and many complaints, they finally weighed my newborn on Dr Shah's office desk. This is totally unacceptable behaviour from a doctors office. I will not be returning. Dr Shah herself is lovely, but the staff and waiting times and service are terrible.

I have two daughters, and we have used Dr. Cohen for 5 1/2 years. I have never been less than pleased with him. His bedside manner is unbeatable, and the girls love him. Also, he listens to my concerns seriously and knows when to refer me to a specialist. One time my youngest had a test done at Texas Children's Hospital, and her specialist at the hospital called me to give me the results of the test. However, Dr. Cohen called me that night and said that he had thought about Hannah's test that day and looked up the results and wanted to let me know what they were in case the hospital had not done so. Wow!! He really is the best, and we will have him as our doctor as long as he is around this area.

His bedside manner is incredible. He is just the sweetest thing! And he knows when to refer to a specialist. My son has had ear problems in the past and Dr. Cohen knows when to treat it himself and when to send us to Dr. Jakob. My son Davis loves Dr. Cohen.
Some of his nurses can be gruff when they are having bad days, but overall, we love the office.

Today I took my daughter Katy Pediatrics and Dr. Shah was extremely rude. She was getting ready to check my daughter and I said, what is that on the back of her throat? Dr. Shah said in a rude way, "I haven't checked her yet!". When she checked my daughter, she yelled at my daugher saying, "Don't you ever touch me again!
My daugher didn't even touch a hem on her jacket. I didn't have clue of what she was talking about. She caught me off guard with these extremely rude comments. My daugher left with her feelings hurt. She didn't have a right to say those things to my child. I will NEVER go back there to see Dr. Shah AGAIN. If she doesn't know how to talk to children, she is definitely in the wrong profession.

I am the mother of three children and my kids are all in good health, but there are times when one gets sick, it is always for sure one of the others will get it. I recently had a bad experience with Katy Pediatrics. Since I was a new patient (changed due to insurance reasons), I could not get in to see Dr. Brown until several weeks(her list for new patients was very long), I am talking 3 weeks. My child is ill... I do not understand that. After calling them 3 different times, I finally got in to see Dr. Wexler and he did not help me at all. He told me my child had Asthma, before even examining her. She is 4 years old and has had a cough before and I was never told she had asthma. I took her for a second opinion, to a clinic, and the Dr. on call there told me she had some rattling in her chest and it may or may not be the start of walking pneumonia. He wrote her a prescription for a antibiotic and we are going on a week now and she is so much better now. If you are a "new patient" and want any of these doctors to be your pediatrician for your child, do not expect to get in right away, you will have to wait several weeks. Most are not even accepting new patients. I would of thought it would be the other way around and they would try very hard to get you in ASAP, but they seemed not to care at all in trying to do so. If your child is sick, you always need immediate attention, not so at this Dr's office. I believe established patients do not have this problem only new patients.

I have a 3/12 year old girl, and I just moved to Katy from spring, TX. Her first pediatrician was referred to me by my OB. I had not done any research on him then, as it was my first experience even having a baby. Nevertheless, I went to him for the 3 consecutive years, I wasn't happy with his service. When I moved to Katy, I realized I had to find a new pediatrician and I don??t' want to pick randomly. My target was to find the best pediatrician for her. While I was browsing in the net to find a good Pediatrician in the area, I came across insider pages, which I think is a best website for the community. I would like to take this opportunity to appreciate the owner of the website. Great help to the community. Good job! I found the Katy Pediatrics through a review in the insider page and now I think its time for me to give some useful feedback. Our pediatrician is Adam Cohen at the Katy pediatrics. He looks young and represented himself with clean attire and good personality. I was very impressed with the way he treated my daughter. He was very professional and was very ease and playful with her. My daughter liked him so much that she wants to visit him again. The nurse, I don't remember her name, was excellent. She did a vaccination for my baby and it was outstanding; My daughter didn't feel any pain. It was a pleasant visit. But remember this is only my initial visit and nothing important. I hope this review will help.

Updated review - 3/5/08

I haven??t got a chance since 2006 to continue on my review about Cohen. Primarily, because I have been busy. When we write a review it should be useful and meaningful. I think all of our situations are different and so does the review. For instance, my daughter is a normal girl with God??s blessing, so I might be happy with Cohen because we only needed simple solutions; however, some children??s problems are perplexing and needed much complicated treatments; The parents with such problems, should write and read reviews that reflects such treatment to have a better understanding about the doctor. Besides, our perceptions differ vastly; my preference about doctor will not be the same with the other parents. So I recommend you all read different reviews for better evaluation. However if you get few best reviews about same doctor, its worth trying. Just blatant reviews such as ??this doctor is good?, and that doctor is bad? without any reason is not beneficial to anyone as I mentioned before our opinion differ. Without cause and effect we can??t decide.
Well! Coming to the point Dr Cohen is a very good doctor. He has pleasing personality. In fact, my daughter anicipates to visit him. I think she likes him, because, he is friendly and treat her like one of his own, respects her as a client and pays attention to her problems. Conversely, as a parent, I am contended with his bedside manner and professionalism. He always listened to me carefully to evaluate the situation. He never prescribed unnecessary medicines for a quick relief. He always considered her best interest. Once when she had 103 degree temperature and cold, after probing all the symptoms, he asked me to monitor her for couple of days and bring her back only if the temperature consistently goes up. Perhaps I am not a very fan of medicine myself so I like the doctor who administer them only if it??s inevitable. Cohen is the best doctor my girl ever had. Good luck.

Dr. Fotouh and Dr. Gonzales are the best pediatric doctors around. They are both so nice and will actually take time to listen to what you have to say.
They are really good about giving samples also so you are not hit in the wallet so hard.
You can make appointments for well check ups and they can get you in the same day for a sick child. You don't have to wait a couple of days to see them.

PROS: gives samples
CONS: busy office, sometimes a long wait

I have been using Dr. Shah for years now and my kids enjoy going to see her. When Dr. Shah is not available I see Dr. Haney. Dr. Haney is wonderful with my children as well and very knowledgeable and will listen to my concerns. The only downside to this office is once in exam room the wait is a bit long, especially when you have little ones that like touching everything.

PROS: Nice waiting area, kids like going, knowledgeable staff
CONS: long wait in exam room

What can I say except I have 3 young children so it is important to LOVE your pediatrician. Dr. Adam Cohen has been ours for several years and we just love him. Like me, he takes a more naturalist approach to medication so he is not shoving antibiotics down their throats every time they get the sniffles. He was also very supportive during a scary time when my 3 month old had spinal meningitis. He even visited the baby in the hospital on his 30th birthday on his way to a party. He is a great guy!

My children have both used Dr. Haney at Katy Pediatrics. The office has a huge waiting area with many books for the children. It is clean and nicely decorated. The nurses are great, and Dr. Haney is a gem. She is gently, patient and thorough.

Dr Micheal Wexler is our doctor in this practice and we just love him. He was actually my doctor when I frist moved to Texas and it is such a joy to have him treat my girls as well. He is a straigh shooter so you need to be looking for that type of personality. He will tell you just how it is and I really like that. He is honest and caring and my girls just think he is hysterical! They love to go see Dr. Wexler.
