She kept recommending unnecessary procedures. My intuition and understanding of my health indicated her solution is not right; after consulting with other doctors proved that was unnecessary too. She is too busy and started to spend less time for each patient, and the scheduling/clinic organization is getting very messed up. I could wait for 1 hour with her only showing for 10 minutes or even no showing up.

Waited over an hour every time Don’t care for the office staff or the doctor. Pushes meds rather than trying to diagnose and solve medical problem.

I am a relatively new patient of Dr. Sophocles and following a few awkward and frustrating visits, have decided not to return. I found my interactions with her to be rushed and she appeared to be almost manic. I had a quick exam while she was bolting from one room to another and at my first meeting, she was pushing for me to start a serious medication usually prescribed for an illness I do not have. When I spoke to my primary, he advised to absolutely not take the medication, which I did not. Some of her comments where unprofessional and offensive. Her approach and manner seemed impulsive and made me uncomfortable.

RUDE! She only cares about the money. She couldn't find the right treatment for me. She misdiagnosed me. I had to find another doctor.

She is the most professional, compassionate, qualified gynecologist I have ever went to. She has given me the upmost care. Extremely responsive. She knows the cutting edge technology as well as keeping solutions simple as possible. Even will use complementary medicine when necessary. My family was even impressed with the care that I received for a procedure at the hospital. She was very attentive to all aspects of my care. I highly recommend Dr Sopheceles

Had a horrible experience with Dr. Sophocles. She misdiagnosed me and I suffered for months because of it. She is ingenuous and non-professional, and has no business practicing medicine. Beware!

Dr S is amazingly attentive and thorough in providing treatment. She takes the time to get to know her patients' needs and come up with agreed upon treatment. Also able to treat a diversity of special needs and highly recommended for post op transwomen.

Dr. Sophocles is the consummate professional. A skilled, thoughtful, thorough and progressive physician, she cares about each patient - body, mind and spirit. She, and wonderful Faiza on her staff, guided me through a potentially serious issue that thankfully amounted to nothing. Patience and kindness are hallmarks of this practice.

How was your experience with Dr. Sophocles?

About Me

Care Philosophy

As a medical student, I was once asked to recall the name of a rare disease. Stumped, I tried to come up with a believable response. The wise attending stopped me and offered the advice I have used every day since as a gynecologist. "The most important thing," he said "is that patients can tell whether you CARE. You have to care about the patients, and you have to listen to them."
