      Dr Soybel sat and listened to all the issues I had with my pain. Then ran some test.He not only repaired my hernia he also found a second hernia, I did not know I had. Plus a tumor that caused me sever pain for several years. I was on pain meds and receiving injections for the lower back pain. Thanks to Dr. Soybel no more pain meds and no more injections. I am truly blessed to have found such a gifted surgeon!Thank you again Dr. Soybel, all the staff and Hershey hospital for such wonderful care

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
