Dr. Jonathan Cohen is a Board-Certified Otolaryngologist/Head and Neck Surgeon and Fellowship-Trained expert in Oncology and Reconstructive Surgery. He is an alumnus of the University of South Carolina and attended their prestigious Honors College before attending the Medical University of South Carolina.


He then completed a diverse training in Head and Neck Surgery in Brooklyn at SUNY Downstate before being recruited into the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics for the sole fellowship position in Head and Neck Oncology and Microvascular Reconstructive surgery.


He then served as instructor after fellowship to residents as a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and the Veterans Hospital in Madison, WI.


He continued to practice in the midwest for several years before returning to the Tri-state area.
