About Dr. Cohn

Education & Work

Here’s a little more about me:

I received both my Bachelor’s degree (in Chemical Engineering) and my Medical Degree from the University of Minnesota. I completed my residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Northwestern University and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. After that, I practiced in Albuquerque, New Mexico in both outpatient musculoskeletal medicine and inpatient rehabilitation from 1988-2000. I joined MAPS – Medical Pain Clinics in 2000 and worked there until 2014 when I moved to CDI in Sartell, where I continue to provide interventional pain management services for patients throughout Minnesota.

I am board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation with additional board-certification in pain management from the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA), the American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians (ABIPP) and the American Board of Pain Medicine (ABPM).  In my free time, I enjoy biking, photography, and spending time with my wife and three children.
