LernerCohen Healthcare – a Sarasota-based practice providing complete concierge medical care – is proud to welcome Dr. James Cocco to its team of board-certified physicians. This addition coincides with the practice’s recently announced 1,200-square-foot expansion at the Waldemere Medical Plaza, which will include additional space for the on-site physical therapist, dietitian and laboratory.
“Dr. Cohen and I are thrilled to work alongside such an experienced and respected physician as Dr. James Cocco, whose background in internal medicine and pediatrics fits perfectly with our practice,” said Dr. Lerner. “By welcoming a new doctor to the LernerCohen family, we reinforce our commitment to ensuring our patients receive unmatched personal attention with every visit.”
Originally from Marlboro, New Jersey, Dr. Cocco attended Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in biology and graduated cum laude with university honors. He then attended the nearby Medical College of Virginia and obtained his medical degree in 2000. After graduating, Dr. Cocco relocated to Tampa, Florida, to complete a four-year residency program in both internal medicine and pediatrics. Upon completion of his residency, Dr. Cocco moved to Sarasota and was employed by First Physicians Group of Sarasota, practicing both internal medicine and pediatrics from 2004 until joining LernerCohen Healthcare in 2016. He maintains board certifications in both specialties, is a member of the American College of Physicians and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
One of the first true concierge medical practices established in the Sarasota area, LernerCohen only accepts a limited number of patients, allowing the physicians the opportunity to know each patient on a personal level, along with their individual medical history. Drs. Lerner, Cohen and Cocco make themselves available to patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as patients are given their doctor’s direct cell phone number – a level of access unmatched by traditional medical care providers. Among the concierge services included are unlimited office visits, on-site dietitian, physical therapy, daily hospital visits, supervision of patients' outside testing, facilitation of appointments with top specialists and surgery coordination.
Formed in 2005 by doctors Brad S. Lerner and Louis M. Cohen – two of the most respected primary care physicians in Sarasota – LernerCohen Healthcare was founded on the principle of fully personalized, comprehensive concierge care with a focus on disease prevention. With over five decades of combined medical experience, Drs. Lerner and Cohen have each practiced medicine in Sarasota for more than two decades. Both doctors have received Board Certification in Internal Medicine and have been elected by their peers to serve as Chief of Medicine at Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
