Dr. Maria E. Sophocles, MD

Obstetrics & Gynecology | Female | 51 years old

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."Read more

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.
