My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am a female primary care physician with over 30 years of experience in internal medicine. I also have the privilege of providing personalized health and wellness care in a model sometimes referred to as concierge medicine. My office is in Center City, Philadelphia, and my patients come from the southeastern Pennsylvania region; New Jersey, as far away as Trenton and Cape May; Delaware, including Rehoboth; and even Maryland. I am on staff at both Pennsylvania Hospital and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and continue to teach residents and students as part of my commitment to educating the next generation of primary care physicians.

My goal as an internist is to partner with my patients so they can become better advocates for their healthcare needs and participate more in the medical decisions that can help them live healthier and happier lives. I manage both acute and chronic diseases and assist with end-of-life decisions. Because of my smaller practice size, I have time to closely listen to my patients and provide proactive medical recommendations and emotional support. My greatest asset is my ability to advocate for my patients' needs, and I am available for all of their questions and concerns. As a private doctor, I coordinate care through our complex healthcare system, and in so doing, I am able to help improve the overall wellness of my patients and limit unnecessary services. I have an honest and direct approach to communication and am sensitive to the different needs and goals of individuals.

My MDVIP-affiliated internal medicine practice has earned the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Level III Certification and has repeatedly achieved above 95% nationwide for quality. This recognition acknowledges an effective way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication in order to transform primary care into "what patients want it to be."

All I can say is there are three things I can't live without. My I phone, chocolate and the compassionate care of Dr. Cohn

I have been a patient of Dr. Cohn's for many years. Dr. Cohn is extremely intelligent and right on target when diagnosing an ailment. She is very attentive to one's needs and makes very good referrals. I continued with Dr. Cohn when she joined MDVIP. There are numerous benefits that go along with MDVIP.

Dr. Cohn,

The words that comes to mind to describe you is RESPONSIVE.

Happy National Doctors' Day (1 day early). You're the best.

from Dennis in PA May 18, 2015 for Lillian E. Cohn, MD, FACP

I'm a 60 something male who, throughout my life, have enjoyed near perfect health.
My annual visits with Lillian took on an almost social air with nothing very serious to discuss or confront.

That changed earlier this year.

I hadn't been feeling up to snuff and made an appointment to see Lillian.
I soon learned how fortunate I was to be under her care.… See more

Dr. Cohn was a doctor that took the time to listen.
She was able to explain information in a way that was to the point abd left me with a clear understanding.
Along with other doctors she was the engineer in reaching a goal of a healthy path that I can continue on.
