What People Say About Dr. Douglas Sobel, MD
Reply
I had an awful experience here. Dr. Sobel and his staff are rude and arrogant. They made me wait over an hour, took months and numerous calls and e-mails to obtain required school forms, and even canceled an appointment that I had made months in advance without even informing me.

Dr. Sobel and NP Perkins were very personable and took time to make my son feel comfortable/at ease. They were very positive and professional, ensuring to ask all questions needed. The staff at the front and nurse were also very helpful.
