Dr Sobel has been my rheumatologist for over 10 years and has taken more time with me to figure out my condition than any other physician. I am in a good place now and it all thanks to Dr Sobel. There is no one better. !

The Worst, truly. I went to him for progressively worsening back pain and he gave me a referral to psychiatry. I'm serious. Then, I find out six months and one fractured vertebrae later that I have a pretty serious spine condition. And yes, the fracture could've been prevented had "Dr" Sobel offered me even five sincere moments of his time. Please respect yourself enough to find a different doctor. You deserve better.

It took months to get an appointment; I had to drive 4 hours each way. I was referred to him to rule out 2-3 specific autoimmune diseases. He seemed compassionate, but he only wrote my referring physician a note suggesting that I try a 2 week course of anti-depressants for fatigue! I was beyond disappointed. I am confused why he did not order other tests, or at least research the diagnosis I had been given and see that it comes with debilitating fatigue! Complete waste of time!

He ran some tests on my son and didn't bother with a follow up to go over the results. I had to look online for the results. Seems he has no interest in treating and caring for patients.
