Dr. Cohen grew up in SW Florida with a love for animals both small and large. Her family had dogs, cats, horses,cows, and chickens!, Much of her time as a child was spent tending to her pets and horseback riding. Both her parents were involved in the medical field so veterinary medicine was a natural choice for her from a young age. After earning a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and a Doctorate in Veteinary Medicine at the University of Florida, Dr Cohen decided that small animal veterinary medicine was her passion. She worked in Florida and New York City before returning to SW Florida. Dr. Cohen’s interests in veterinary medicine include wellness, internal medicine, and dermatology. Dr. Cohen loves SW Florida for the beautiful outdoors and wildlife. She enjoys the beach, biking, and taking walks in the Florida sunshine.
