The guy is not fit to cut my grass, let alone take care of me as a patient. No. Find someone else. He failed to discover that I was a diabetic. I found that out via a pre-surgery certification. There were too many office visits that I paid for him to order the correct blood work and he failed to do so, even when I told him of a family history of diabetes. No. Go somewhere else.

Dr. Sokol has NO bedside manner and does not instill faith in his patients. He repeatedly referred to the wrong condition and insisted on treatments for other problems that I did not actually have. He did not listen and was repeatedly rude and just did not care. After all of that he spoke loudly to his nurse about another patients condition which I'm pretty sure is against HIPAA. Please do not go to this doctor. He was a waste of time. Plus I waited over an hour in the waiting room...

Received a referral from my Hematologist to see Dr Sokol. The staff that answered the phone was beyond rude. I can't imagine this behavior when trying to make an appointment. I will never give my business to someone that employees such as this. Prime example of how not to treat someone. Extremely disappointed.

I would recommend Dr. Sokol because over the many years I have gone to him, I appreciate the excellent care that I have received from Dr. Sokol. He is a good listener and I always have excellent follow-up care.
in Kansas City, KS |
Dr. Sokol is very knowledgeable and intuitive. In the two years since I've been seeing him, he put me on the correct medications, listened to my preferences, I gave me coupons to get prescriptions at reduced rate. My beginning A1C was 9 it is currently 5.7. That is with his medicines and my JJ Virgin Sugar Impact Diet. My visits are short. I would recommend him.
in Overland Park, KS |
My experience with Dr. Sokol has been very positive. He has been very thorough in diagnosing my health problems related to his specialty and, at the end of my visit, gives me an detailed update on my situation and future treatment. My waiting time has been minimal and the nurses are both very pleasant and helpful.
in Independence, MO |
Doctor Sokol is very warm, friendly, and outgoing. He is thorough, covers all basis, and then explains the purpose of any labs, tests, procedures, etc..A follow up appointment, Dr. Sokol will explain the results in great detail. Don't be afraid to ask any questions, for they are welcomed, and answered with great detail.
excellent practitioner that listens to you and treats you with respect. Very knowledgeable on a wide variety of issues not just the specific issues you are there to address..
Kansas City, MO |
I had to drop Dr. Sokol as a doctor because he didn't listen to me when I told him the meds he prescribed were causing me pain. He simply stated, "that is not a side affect of this drug.". The meds he prescribed were the traditional meds and cause all the symptoms of hypothyroidism that I never had. After seeing him a number of times I realized it wasn't a good fit. Once I stopped the meds I was able to recover from the intense leg cramps that woke me at night and increasing joint pain.
in Overland Park, KS |
Dr.Sokol has been a great fit for me with his widespread medical knowledge and his proactive care approach. I have multiple health conditions and it is great having a doctor who can put the whole picture together for you rather than only having a narrow specialty or knowledge base. He is intelligent, kind and has done a great job for me for the last two years.
in Olathe, KS |
Very thorough, caring physician. He takes the time to explain your test results to you. He even explained a surgery to me that my mother was going to undergo in another city,-much more clearly than the surgeon we worked with there. Dr. Sokol works to find the best solution for your medical condition. Definitely a doctor you can trust.
in Overland Park, KS |
I am an adult with Type I diabetes, Dr. Sokol helps me with the management of my chronic illness, and I appreciate that he is honest and upfront about my condition, but not in a negative way. He does not approach me with the old "doom and gloom" mentality, but he is direct and honest about things. I appreciate that, and he explains things to me in an understandable way.
Lees Summit, MO |
Very kind; thorough and knowledgeable.

Dr. Sokol listens to my concerns and always welcomes my input.
in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA |
This man is an unqualified waste of time. He assuredly spoke into his little microphone that he's "certain" my plethora of lifelong symptoms is due to "restrictive eating" despite me being more than clear that it was one of the last symptoms to ensue within the past few years, and then recommended a psychoanalysis. Fast forward 4 years and I finally found a doctor with the correct through, holistic approach and was diagnosed with several strains of Lyme disease, as well as Celiac, Hashimotos, &

I went to Dr Sokol with a weight issue that nothing else was working on. I was eating right, exercising. But, it hurt my knees, and I had a couple of injuries during activities due to the excess weight. I had hired a personal trainer, and tracked everything I ate. He listened. But, more so, he provided me the needed tools to achieve my weight loss, and support. As a result, I am at a normal weight, down 15 sizes from the beginning to now. I can't recommend him enough to people.
in Kansas City, MO |
Dr. Sokol is by far the best doctor I have been to. He is extremely knowledgable in his specialty as well as other areas of concern or interest to his patients health. It is extremely impressive how punctual and prepared he is for every visit, which seems to be almost unheard of in the world of medicine today, especially the punctuality!
in Olathe, KS |
He is a wonderful doctor. I would give him ten stars if I could.
