What People Say About Dr. Sophia Deben, MD

I saw Dr Deben 4 months ago for bad pain in the upper part of my gluteus. She stayed in my room literally 5 minutes. She said that I had a piriformis muscle inflammation and she took an xray. I heard when she told to a medicine student that I had two vertebras moved out of place. She recommended phisical therapy and ibuprofen of 800 mg (just because I asked her for some painkiller) . Here I'm 4 month later same pain and bad pain in low lumbar after the physical theraphy. Never again.

Uffffff, what a Doctor.!! First things first. Went to her office at North Miami Beach, did not have to wait much, the staff is Super Great and Super nice, X Rays were on the go even before seeing the doctor, they do this because I already put what was going on with me on a sheet of paper, so why bother again. After X Rays a Doctor did a Pre Observation and then she came in. I honestly thought I need it surgery of a Spur on my right foot, but she said "Negative" what you need is a boot. Done

La doctora Deben es muy profesional, amable y precisa en su diagnostico. Tanto ella como su personal hablan español e ingles, las asistentes de su staff son por igual muy corteses. El doctor que te recibe antes de la evaluación de la doctora Deben parece un angel, muy cariñoso y simpatico. Ella tiene una oficina que irradia paz y seguridad de que estas en buenas manos.

Dr. Deben conducted foot surgery on me while I was serving in the military. Her incompetence or at least lack of follow-up led me leaving the service with excruciating pain when I walk, more so than prior to surgery. I'm shocked she's still practicing and feel hurt how a medical professional can drastically impact one's life without consequences. Even if just consciously awareness of opening flesh of another human without concern of their well being after that synthetic manipulation.

Dr Deben cares & spends time to understand your mobility/sports goals, then advises on several treatment options, incl surgery. Comprehensive approach. She gently guides you to the best plan. On surgery day she's cheerful and damn good at what she does. Post-op visits were helpful. I'm 6 months out and fully appreciate what she did to improve my quality of life.

Dr. Deben changed my life in the best possible way with her proper diagnosis and treatment. She accurately diagnosed that I needed surgery and told me that after a few months of recovery and therapy I would be able to go back to dance. I had my surgery a year ago and I'm so happy to say that I'm better than ever. Not only am I doing 2+ hours of daily exercise but a few days ago I became certified as a Zumba instructor. Thank you Dr. Deben, I will be forever thankful to you!
