Dr Sobol is an excellent Dr who is very professional and I am so lucky to have him for my daughters thyroid dr. He is in our opinion the best and I would absolutely recommend him. Thank you Dr Sobol for taking the time to answer all of our questions and concerns before the surgery. Decatur is fortunate to have you.

I was seeing Dr. Sobel for my thyroid cancer, which he treated well, but when I was having other issues, no one cared! Telling me it was in my head, or I'm crazy, not acceptable! Not listening to me, not acceptable!

There really wasn't much of an experience. He spent literally 30 seconds talking at me and completely dismissed an ultrasound finding as nothing. I wanted to ask him a question about low blood calcium but I wasn't given the chance. He was too busy talking into a microphone recording my pointless visit. My original appointment was also cancelled by his office because he went to a meeting. It wound up taking 5 months to see him for my test results.
