Office: 919.513.6518

Dr. Cohen received his B.S. in marine science and biology from the University of Tampa in 2001, and his D.V.M. from the Tufts School of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. He completed a rotating internship at Florida Veterinary Specialists in 2009, in addition to working as a general practitioner in Tampa, FL. He then attended the University of Georgia where he completed his residency in diagnostic imaging in 2012. He become a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Radiology in 2013. Following completion of residency, he worked as a senior lecturer at Massey University in New Zealand. In 2014, he returned to the United States in a faculty position at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He has special interest in cross sectional imaging (CT, MRI), zoo/exotic/wildlife animal imaging, and the role of teaching in accelerating advancement from novice to expert in relation to diagnostic imaging.
