Clay T. Cohen, MD
Dr. Clay Cohen provides his clinical expertise in bleeding disorders to the Young Women's Bleeding Disorders Clinic. Heavy menstrual bleeding may be caused by an underlying bleeding disorder in up to 30% of young women with excessive menstrual bleeding. Accurate diagnosis is necessary to optimize care and patient outcomes, including social, sports, and school participation.
Dr. Cohen focuses his evaluation on bleeding disorders that most commonly affect young women with heavy menstrual bleeding, including: Von Willebrand Disease, platelet function disorders, hemophilia carrier states, and coagulation factor deficiencies. If a bleeding disorder diagnosis is made, he, alongside his colleagues, will develop an individual patient care plan for the best individual outcome.
