Dr. Sobhy is exactly what I was looking for in a doctor. He's kind, compassionate, takes time to explain every single question I have. I feel like he's on my side and he legitimately cares about me. He never rushes me out. After a horrible doctor, I am so happy to find someone so compassionate.

Not Helpful! I went to Dr. Sobhy with a sore throat and severe sinus congestion and he told me to gargle salt water and take ibuprofen. He then said if in a couple days if I wasn't feeling better to call him and he'd call in a script for me. That was Wednesday, by Friday my ear was so congested I could barely hear and I called his office asking for him to call in the script. I called THREE times and never got a call back. So I tried his suggestions over the weekend and it still didn't. Called hi

This is the most unprofessional "Doctor" I have ever met. His office was empty but yet I had to wait 15 minutes before I was even acknowledged while he sat at his computer. He wanted cash upfront at check in then spent 2 minutes with me and said I can't help you and said I should go back to my other Doctor. When I asked why he would charge me to tell me he couldn't help me he said that's how it works. Visit ended with him throwing his clip board in anger and walking out.

LOVE the doctor. HATE the way the office runs....if it runs at all. I am leaving this practice just because of the staff. I can never get through on the phone, and when I do, they know nothing. Horribly run office.

I was waiting for important documents to be sent to another medical office and only learned today that the paperwork still had not been received by the proper office. I understand that paperwork gets lost but had I not called I still would be waiting thinking that everything was okay. That is bothersome when you have a serious medical condition. Dr Sobhy is very personable and caring. Just hope this time my paperwork gets to the right place.

Misdiagnosed my 1 year old son for over two months... on multiple visits inside a 7-8 week period I specifically asked the doctor to check my sons ears because he seemed to be tugging on them quite frequently in addition to the cold/flu that seemed to only get worse over two course of the two months. Dr. Sobhy insisted there was no infection in either ear and chuckled at my concern, adamant my son only had allergies. Different doctor discovered severe double ear infection 2 months in the making.
