I've seen Dr. Sobel for my daughter a couple of times now. Seems like I could find any other doctor that might actually have more to say. Besides that, I've never waited less than an hour past my appointment time. Pretty hard when you have a toddler to entertain in a doctors office for that long.

Omg I love Dr.Sobel. She is so compassionate and makes you feel safe. She makes sure you don't leave until you understand everything about your procedure. I truly love nurse Sylvia too! I think I may adopt all of them??. I love her crazy socks so check them out!
