Dr. and Mrs. Cohen didn't hesitate to treat my 9 month old Rottweiller puppy after he underwent an unnecessary hygroma surgery on both elbows by our FORMER vet that resulted in a massive infection. The wound and infection were so bad that Newport Beach Veterinary Hospital's ("NBVH") Dr. Fitch had to perform a second/reconstructive surgery to correct the "work" done by the other vet. It's been a long tedious journey, but Bear is now home and nearly fully recovered. NBVH will be my only choice for veterinary care moving forward. Words can't express my thanks for the care Bear received from Dr. & Mrs. Cohen, Dr. Fitch and the incredible staff at NBVH. Don't settle, your pet deserves the best.

Dr Cohen & his wife Deb are so dedicated to their practice and patients. Their main focus is the overall health of patients not the bill. They have been nothing but LIFESAVERS for our family and myself. We will never take our pets elsewhere. Dr. Cohen & Deb are truly amazing people with huge hearts. I would drive a million miles for their services with our pets. They give over a million percent to their patients and work MAGIC without the smoke and mirrors. They saved both my cats life when he was hit by a car & my puppy's life after getting into something. They go above and beyond the call of duty. I highly recommend them to anyone I know with a pet. They truly are caring genuine individuals. I cannot thank them enough for all they do not just for us but all their patients. Thank you doesn't even begin to express the gratitude we have for them.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! CHECK HIM OUT! One of the best veterinarians in the whole area. He treated my dog very well. She loves going to his office, because he gives her treats and talks and plays with her. He has treated most of my family's animals and they all love him. He is a very kind, very experienced, very patient! He loves animals so much and he is also a very professional and an extremely polite with people,.. with clients! I do not think you will ever find a better veterinarian as Dr. Jeffrey Cohen. He has so many years of experience and I am never afraid to bring my pet for his care. Let him to take care of your loved ones! He understand just recently that he also is a special degree vet so you really get your money's worth here with him.

I have had MANY wonderful experiences with these great people! Dr. C has taken care of my treasured pup MANY times with love. When we pull up to this vet's place, you can tell the power that he has as my dog gets all excited and can't wait to get in there. Can you believe that? I keep telling her "hey, it's the vet, silly" but she lets me know they are extended family. Everyone loves and watches my dog as if she were her own when she stays there- I have NEVER seen this in her elsewhere before. When they updates me on progress reports, they have clearly spent extensive time with her- recognizing her quirks and personality traits. When I pick up, she is excited and happy- something that rarely has happened elsewhere. I have seen Dr. Cohen work wonders on my pet and everyone in the waiting room is usually saying the same thing to me. Truly impressive- I could never go anywhere else.

We have been using Dr. Cohen for almost 20 years now and through a multitude of pets: 4 dogs, 4 cats. Um, wow! Came in with one of the cats and left with a stray dog they had saved from being killed. Fabulous doctor that listens and remembers you and your pet! Smart guy! Immaculate facilities. Friendly, helpful staff always ready to go the extra length. They remember all the many many details of everyone and their pets. wow! Safe and worth every cent we ever spent!

Last review was from an unfortunate & sad client. On rare occasion, we find that even when we extend ourselves on behalf of a client and their pet in every way, we cannot meet the needs of that client to their satisfaction, especially when that client advises us of their own mental illness. It is regrettable that clients we care about can become ill in the elderly years as many years of care was given to this client & various pets. Serious illness in a pet, especially cancer can be frustrating for anyone and often the choices are not good ones. After recent months of verbally abusive behavior towards our front office staff, we had to ask this client to continue veterinary services elsewhere thus the nasty review. It's all so sad and leaves us feeling helpless but to allow our staff to continue to be subjected to rants and nastiness was counterproductive to the pet care process of working in unison with a pet owner for the greater good of their animal. Sadly, we have been advised this person has ended the life of their pet. Incredibly sad. We extend our deepest sympathy for the loss of any sick pet and wish for only the best for this person with the hope she might get much needed personal care.
Today, we took our new puppy to see our new vet near the Bay Club and I'm writing to say after our horrible last experience at Newport Center Animal Clinic in the Fashion Island Center, we found such a change that we can't believe they are even the same kinds of businesses. We did our homework this time around and our new doctor's name is Dr. Jeffrey Cohen who is very wise, in a word. His manner is so gracious and we are so pleased he is taking us as a new patient. We never want to go through what we did before and we never want our any little dog to have to suffer again. We are not completely recovered from the last bad vet but we have hope now and in time we pray thinking about our last puppy won't bring tears.

In contrast to many of the other facilities masquerading as a safe haven for your pet when they are sick or broken this vet is the real deal! Dr. Cohen rocks! This smart and sweet man, is clearly not in it for the money if you knew the kind of hours he works. He has done right by us about a thousand times. We have many dogs and a few cats without the luxury of unlimited funds and our experience has been that he has a knack for just performing the most necessary, critical procedures, and NOT drumming up a big bill, just for the heck of it or because he needs to go on a fishing expedition because he doesn't have a clue like other vets (that will remain unmentioned). When you go to someone so smart like Doc Cohen, he just zeros in on the true problem. God bless him. If you have to run your beloved fuzzy family member to a vet for a normal problem or a complicated one, you know what this vet says is the honest truth. If you've ever been waiting in his lobby, you always hear his praises from other people just like me who have been going to see him for forever and have amazing stories of his brilliance. This guy is one of the good ones.

Newport Vetinary Clinic is a phenominal clinic with two very gifted and professional IM and Xray speicalists. The staff is extremely professional and courteous extending gracious services normally seen in a spa. You may have to wait a little longer than you'd like, but when its your turn you are treated with respect and courtesy. Your animals are cared for.

The staff here is very attentive to details and the vet is an amazingly smart guy who really care about what he does. Dr. Jeff Cohen is a specialist of veterinarians. My dog drags me into this vet hospital so that says it all for me.
