Abhorrant! I had just moved to the area when it was time for my yearly checkup. A quick Google search lead me to Dr. Sobel's office and I was excited when the appointment was made so easily and quickly, even though she only works a few days a week. Was in the exam room with a very friendly and competent nurse not long after signing in. Should have known things were too good to be true!! Considering that there was no one else in the waiting room when I walked in, there was a VERY long space of time where I waited after the nurse left. FINALLY, who I thought was the doctor, walked in the door and struck up a conversation. She was very nice, had a nice bedside manner, but only introduced herself by her first name. But she didn't seem very competent. I told myself that she had been to years of medical school and that her ditziness was personality, not intelligence. Towards the end of my exam, she saw/felt something she wondered aloud if "the doctor might want to see this". I then said that I was very confused, wasn't SHE the doctor? She calmly explained that no, she was only the doctor's nurse practitioner. At that point I felt that I had been maliciously duped while being smiled at the whole time, like the whole office was in on a conspiracy. I tried to shake that off and give the benefit of the doubt when the NP said she was going to go ask the doctor if she wanted to come take a look. I thought, "good, she's going to try to salvage the situation". Once again, I was so wrong. Before going to get the doctor, she told me her solution for the issue that she did not understand, hence going to ask if the doctor wanted to personally come and see me, her patient. A few minutes later the NP came back in the room saying that "Dr. Sobel is in the middle of reading a medical journal right now" and therefore could not take the time to come see me. But the doctor had sent along a prescription to fix my issue (remember, an issue she has not seen for herself). I pushed the issue, asking why the doctor, who I had scheduled an appointment with and was paying, wouldn't come see her patient?! The doctor finally came in reluctantly and basically told me that she had never seen my issue before. She then shrugged her shoulders, this whole time hardly looking me in the eye while standing on the other side of the room. She told me to pick up my prescription at the front and walked out the door. Just in case all of this is not clear, a doctor who I was paying and had scheduled an appointment with did not consider her patient more important than a journal she was reading in the middle of a work day. When I called her on it, she acted like I was interrupting HER. Will NEVER go back to Dr. Sobel. She does not deserve the title of "Doctor", and her NP is walking a fine line of mis-representing herself.

The doctor is nice and friendly, but my wife and I had a hard enough time trying to get meeting with the doctor when we thought we were having complications with our pregnancy. Needless to say it was dismissed every time and we eventually lost our baby girl. To add insult to injury we had to attend a 6 week postpartum visit and upon entering the exam room, Dr. Sobel herself asked, " No baby? Where's your baby today?" My wife reacted appropriately and started to cry while I got furious and the doctor offered her apologies and antidepressants.... Also the office staff is rude and uncaring.

I went to Dr Sobel for both of my previous pregnancies. My husband and I just found out that we are expecting once again, and I can't bring myself to go to any other doctor. We live an hour away in Ocala and I would still prefer to drive to Crystal River to see Dr Sobel, than to trust that any other doctor here could give me such great care.
