Dr. Sokol is among the top 0.1% in endocrinology. He is brilliant, and cares deeply about his patients. I've had only great experiences with him. Unfortunately, the staff at Statland are not so great. Lab orders weren't sent so I could get tests done prior to appointments (twice), and there were other problems with staff I won't articulate. HOWEVER, DR. SOKOL IS WORTH DEALING WITH THE STAFF PROBLEMS. You won't find a better endocrinologist anywhere.

Dr. Sokol has made a huge difference in my overall health and condition. Under Dr. Sokol's care, he has managed to help me lose 75 lbs and get my A1C down from an 11.2 to a very well managed 4.8 in about 12 months. I've been able to reduce some of my diabetes medications. Dr. Sokol has been a little miracle worker and has done an amazing job at getting my overall health in shape and helping me keep it there. He always listens and always has an answer, solution, or game plan for whatever comes up and makes changes as needed to fine tune things. He's great at looking at the whole picture to treat the whole body and not just one symptom. I have a great deal of trust in Dr. Sokol and look forward to my regular visits with him to report on the progress of my health. I think he enjoys it too because his face lights up with a smile when i tell him about all the good things i have to report back to him and thank him for. I've even started consulting Dr Sokol on issues with kidney stones
