    About Me

    Dr. Melissa J. Cohen is assistant clinical professor of medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a board certified medical oncologist practicing at UCLA Hematology/Oncology in Westlake Village and Porter Ranch. She began her medical training at George Washington University in Washington D.C., and then moved to Denver where she completed her internal medicine residency training at the University of Colorado. In 2008, she relocated to Southern California to complete her fellowship training in both geriatrics and medical oncology at UCLA.

    Her goal is to deliver individualized care of the highest quality, using state-of-the-art medical science, while focusing on all aspects of the patient's experience- physical, emotional, psychological as well as spiritual.
