I was very apprehensive of having my thyroid removed. During my pre-op consult, Dr. Sobel made me very comfortable about the procedure. He explained in detail the procedure and what was to be expected post operative. His calm demeanor and professionalism allowed my anxiety level to decrease. On the day of surgery Dr. Sobel again met with me and my husband and reassured our confidence. Dr Sobel is a professional surgeon that I would recommend to anyone. If I had to have a procedure within in

Dr. Sobel removed a melanoma from my face near my nose. He was compassionate in explaining what needed to be done and how it would be accomplished. The plastic surgeon worked with him and together they were able to remove the melanoma, a lymph node and close the area beautifully. It has been 3 months since my surgery and everything has healed to the extent that it is barely noticeable. I am extremely pleased with every aspect of my experiences with Dr. Sobel. I am a 74 year old woman.

Dr Sobel is very kind, caring & patient, with a fun sense of humor. He helped me through a very scary, difficult time. Very learned & skilled, he teaches other drs. You can't find a nicer or better doctor. I wish I could have him for my primary care doctor! His staff is also very kind, friendly and helpful.

I went to DR Sobel for a second opinion. He answered all of my questions. I never felt rushed or silly for asking certain questions. I felt he was very thorough with his answers. I appreciated his professional & caring demeanor. His staff was also professional and kind. They all made me feel very welcome.

I highly recommend Dr. Sobel. I am a 62 year old female with 20 years experience on the administrative side of a fast paced medical practice. It was different now being the patient in need of surgery. However, Dr. Sobel and his superb staff helped ease my concerns. They were helpful in scheduling needed testing, follow up appointments as well as the surgery. Heartfelt thanks from my daughter and I to Dr. Sobel for his professional, pleasant and positive attitude. He is a blessing to many!

Dr. Sobel was referred to me independently by two endocrinologists, which was my first indication that he is highly regarded. Every step along the way, from the initial consultation, to the post-op follow ups, he has been terrific. Regarding the surgery, his work was astoundingly good. My recover has been infinitely easier than was expected, and my incision looks like it will leave but the slightest of scars. He is the epitome of the type of doctor under whose care one hopes to end up.

This is my first HealthGrades review and I am so excited to tell you about Dr. Ryan Sobel. Dr. Sobel is great!!! He is a highly skilled surgeon who knew exactly what needed to be done to address my medical issue. However, I was most impressed with his personality and bedside manner. He was very thorough in his explanation and I left there feeling very comfortable and prepared. The surgery went incredibly well and his follow up was amazing. Everyone needs a surgeon like Dr. Sobel!!! He is awesome

It was a pleasure to be a patient of Dr. Sobel's. He is truly one of the kindest people I have ever met and matched by his high level of medical and surgical skills. I looked forward to our visits. I felt trusting and confident in him from our first meeting. He was open and welcomed any and all questions. If there was one thing I'd ask him to do differently, it would be to call and let me know any test results of the removed tissue if he knows them before my first post op visit. Thank you, Doc!

Dr. Sobel is an EXCELLENT Surgeon and warm Doctor! I visited him for an extremely large thyroid goiter and a neck mass no other doctor recognized. He's professional, gentle and easy to talk to, explaining, the results of every MRI, scope and sonogram I had. Dr. Sobel removed that left side of my thyroid, with amazing results! I can swallow and lay down without pain, AND THERE IS NO VISIBLE SCAR! Thyroid surgery involves a cut under the throat, but NO ONE CAN TELL I'VE BEEN CUT!! Amazing!!

Dr. Sobel is outstanding.I had several surgeries with him and his team. I am extremely pleased. He took time to explain everything he was going to do during the operation. He answered every question my wife and I asked him. He talks with you and not at you. I would also mention Dr. Joseph who was also excellent. Again a doctor with empathy and professionalism. Finally the entire staff up front and those in the back who set up apps's and those who work with Doc esp. Angie.

Went to Dr. Sobel because I felt something and wasn't feeling right. He did tests, a FNA biopsy and then a partial thyroidectomy. He took time to explain everything. He's very caring and calming and gets back to you quickly on results. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Sobel is my favorite doctor because he is kind, considerate, and very knowledgeable. When I first met him I knew he was the one I wanted to do my total thyroidectomy. Having been diagnosed with thyroid cancer at the end of August this year, I was still trying to accept the fact that I had cancer. He was more than willing to explain why I needed the surgery and what the results would be. He answered all of my questions and even examined my vocal cords. Can't say enough good things about him!
