Hello! We cordially invite you to our offices. We're sure that you'll find your experience to be a personal, interactive one with a welcoming atmosphere.
My practice is grounded in the idea that good care begins with good communication. We are proud to be accessible to parents and patients at all times, even though questions or concerns may arise outside of appointment times. This includes during or after office hours.
You are encouraged to call the office if questions arise concerning treatment plans, home treatment programs, or other matters. I also consider myself to be a community resource. We're always here to answer questions and provide counsel regarding communication issues. This is a free service to the community.- Dr. Gary S. Cohen

To get to know us better, we'd like to give you a brief background of Dr. Cohen's professional activities.
He completed his Undergraduate Studies in Speech and Theatre Arts at Morris Harvey College, now known as the University of Charleston, in Charleston, West Virginia. Dr. Cohen was "called to service" and served in the United States Marine Corps.
Following 2 years of active service both in and out of the United States, he completed his Master's Degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology at the University of Pittsburgh. The major emphasis of his Master's work done in communication disorders related to head and neck anomalies. Dr Cohen then worked in the Boston Area for 2 years to become clinically certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the national governing board for Speech/Language Pathologists and Audiologists.
During this time, Dr. Cohen was invited to present the results of his Masters Thesis to national and international medical conferences. Following his 2 years at Kennedy Memorial Hospital for Children, Dr. Cohen entered Memphis State University (now the University of Memphis) for his Doctoral training. In conjunction with his coursework at Memphis State University, Dr. Cohen did most of his Doctoral work at the University of Tennessee Medical and Dental Units. He was the first Speech/Language Pathology Doctoral student to be permitted to cross register at the medical and dental schools and was the first non-dental student in his program to complete the 6 month Head and Neck Anatomy Class as a member of that dental class.
Following this, much of Dr. Cohen's clinical training occurred in the medical program in normal and abnormal Pediatrics and Otolaryngology (Ears-Nose-Throat disorders). Also during this time, Dr. Cohen served as a Clinical Supervisor in Speech/Language Pathology for Master's students at Memphis state. He was awarded a Pre-doctoral Fellowship at the Veterans Hospital in Memphis Tennessee. After completion of his studies in Memphis, Dr. Cohen became an Assistant Professor in Speech Pathology and Audiology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He served as a clinical and research supervisor and also taught graduate level courses in Voice Disorders, Stuttering, Diagnosis and Evaluation of Communication Disorders, and medically related communication disorders.
After teaching at UWM for 5 years, Dr. Cohen entered full-time practice. He has extensive experience with traditional speech and language disorders in children and adults. These have included speech sound and language disorders, fluency disorders, voice difficulties, and disorders created by strokes and other head and neck problems, including aphasia and swallowing. Also has a very strong background in working with individuals who demonstrate medically based communication problems.
In additional to his clinical practice, Dr. Cohen has served on various committees and Boards of several organizations. He has been a consultant for University program development, the state of Wisconsin and has been an Ad Hoc Professor at Marquette University. He also has provided outside reviews of Speech/Language Pathology cases for insurance companies, school systems, and has served as an Expert Witness/Consultant for legal firms. Dr. Cohen also consults with the Amish community in western Wisconsin. By special invitation, Dr. Cohen was a member of the Milwaukee District Society of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons. He has presented at numerous Speech/Language Pathology and medical conferences both nationally and internationally. He has also instructed physicians prior to Board examinations.
