Review for Dr. Sobel

By the time I went to see Dr. Cohen, I'd already had consults with two other surgeons. From the moment I met Dr. Cohen, I knew Belcara would be my choice. The staff at friendly and professional; and Dr. Cohen made me feel relaxed and comfortable. I'd give him 10 stars if I could.

I do not recommend him. He had ordered unnecessary tests that showed no abnormalities. He gave me only a cursory examination and spent the least possible time with me, only 2-3 minutes. I will not go back to him again.
